DH called me yesterday while I was out of the office on course and left me a vmail saying that they had a staff promotion on BlackBerry's at his work just for the day and it was a really good deal so we would go up when I was done work. We did and I FINALLY got my BB (silver Curve)! The phone itself cost me $12 and my monthly plan is $40 (incl. an awesome voice and data plan) + system access fee and tax. It's the employee promotional plan. I'm so friggin' excited and totally addicted to it. I can't stop playing with it.
This morning on my way to work, I had my old cell phone (for contact switch over), my iPod Touch (for music) and my BB on the bus (I do my part of the environment by taking public transit to and from work and it helps to not have to pay 6 bucks for parking every day too). People were probably looking at me going "GEEK" but I don't care. I'm a gadget junkie and I LOVE it! I totally understand the term "CrackBerry"!
