No, but I have to set them up at work. I hate those things, mostly because they are a pain to set up.

dont waste your time because you should just get a treo if you want a phone like that and its a thousand times better and faster than a blackberry. i was going to get a blackberry but then i realized they are huge and awkward to talk into and they run off slow networks and have long boot up times. i really like the treos because of the touchscreen and the palm software and that it runs on the gprs high speed network and it has camera and tons of other features that blackberrys dont have. blackberrys were cool back in the day but you can do better for your money. (i also dont like the new blackberrys because of the keys cuz it makes it like a regular phone for texting) blackberrys look cool but yah i wouldnt waste your money and if you do have money go for treo.

We run a Blackberry Enterprise server that wirelessly syncs their e-mail and other Outlook information with the BB in realtime. It'* great technology, and useful to many. I work at a mortgage company so a lot of people need to be in constant contact with their clients, and this is a good way to do it.

But supporting them bites.

My motorola V505 syncs with my outlook and works damn near like a PDA. I don't like the size of the blackberry. Too big. I have bluetooth, too.

Lucky Americans, you guys have WAY better telecom service/options than here in Canada. It is estimated that Canada is on average 6 years behind the US in terms of the access to services the average citizen has.

My Boss'* Boss keeps threatening to give me a Crackberry phone. All becaue I told her people think she'* insane because she'* always walking around talking on her headset that you can't see under her hair...

I like high tech toys, but when I leave my desk to take a break, I really don't want it following me....
