Do I need a Blackberry?

23 posts in this topic

Well obviously I don't need one and I am trying to convince myself that I don't want one but as I haven't bought a gadget for ages, this is currently top of the list ROLLEY~14.GIF

Anyway, my question is - how many email addresses can you set up on one i.e. could I have all my pipex addresses, as well as gmail and my domain email all pointing to it?

Probably looking at an 8100 Pearl if it makes any difference as I would also want to use it as a regular phone.

My K800i does email but it's a pain having to dial in everytime, rather than get them 'pushed' as soon as they are sent.

Treo is not a bad shout either 169144-ok.gif

I thought the K800i did support "push email"....at least that's what the web site says.

I've considered one of these.

But once i have an email, i have to read it. Don't always respond immediately, but have to read it - work-related ones anyway.

A blackberry would probably ruin my life!! I'll stick to ribena (blackcurrants!)

Incidently, has anyone seen the current ribena ad? It used to say "99% of britains blackcurrants make it", although now says "most of britains blackcurrants make it"

Just an observation.

I have a Blackberry and when I'm juggling different clients it's invaluable however when I'm just on one I don't bother using it.

Also, it does take a fair bit of discipline to turn it off 169144-ok.gif

I have a Blackberry sat at home doing nothing. I'm just not important enough to have one.

£50 anyone?

I don't really need one but am tempted. My Dad has one and my Mum gets annoyed when it goes off at all times of the day.

Use a Blackberry all the time.. to work and from work.. auto switch off at 9pm.. don't use it a weekends and you're fine... but when I first got one it took over my life a bit I was alwasy using it and carrying it everywhere...sending random work related emails at 11pm at night... I mean what the feck!.. now I just control my use and its the biz.. I can honestly say its one of the best business tools out there.. just make sure you keep it to business hours.

I have a 8700g hooked up to thye companies Exchange server (BES).. but you can also set up on blackberry's own BIS service. (internet based server)

Personally I'd say opt for a Windows based smart phone. They can do everything a Blackberry can and then some. Also, they don't have to be a brick.

They aren't called CrackBerrys for nothing you know...

I agree with Tian - get a life and buy something cool, like maritime binoculars with "steady-cam" and night vision. grin.gif

I concur! Fecking crapberrys NONO3.GIF

If you want your life ruining then go right ahead. Quite possibly one of the worst bits of technology ever invented sportifs2.gif

Buy one at your peril. And my opinion is from experience not from what I've read in a magazine etc.

Oh well - was having a look on Ebay this afternoon and my finger accidentally slipped grin.gif

Paid well under what others are going for so even if I decide that I don't like it, I'll just flog it again 169144-ok.gif

I'm due an upgrade in a couple of months, so I'll get whatever is most valuable at the time and recoup my costs that way 169144-ok.gif
