Ten Days of Thanksgiving: Day 7

Today I am thankful for Black Berry Messenger.

I would be lying if I said I don't have iPhone envy - I totally do. But until Apple releases an iPhone for Verizon, I will be sticking with my Black Berry.

While my Black Berry is not perfect, one thing I do love about it is Black Berry messenger. I would be lost without it! I am so thankful that Nora introduced me to it last fall when I bought my first Black Berry!

I use Black Berry messenger to keep in touch with my sister in Tucson. I used it to keep in touch with Amber while training for the marathon (and we of course still bbm on a daily basis!) I taught my parents how to use it and also use it to keep in touch with them. A week after we started dating, I showed the Barrister how to use it and now it's our primary source of contact during the work day.

I know that I will eventually get a new phone and bbm will be a thing of the past, but until then, it's a huge part of every day of my life!

I'm totally with you! I'll be eligible for a phone upgrade in May and while I like some of the other phones (I think their cameras are better, they work faster), BBM keeps pulling me back in. It's just more fun than regular texting!

Charbelle said...

LOL my roommate was addicted to BBM as well. Since I don't have a Blackberry I still use the old fashioned... texting, HA!!

Abby said...

I love BBM too!!!

I have to say I do'nt really have Iphone envy. But, that could b/c I don't really use I-tunes EVER anymore. Or anything Apple, for that matter.

LOL with the iPod post and now the BB post, I'm feeling more and more like I'm living in the dark ages haha :)

I don't use any of these things...I'm so low-tech. I can barely remember to keep the cell phone I do have charged. I have a mental block with a cell phone but I can certainly see how it would be a good thing!

Thanks for showing us the BBM as a day does not go by that I don't use it, I think!

Yay! I LOVE BBM! It's the one thing that makes me resist getting an iPhone or some other fancy phone. Oh, well that and the money ;)

Happy Friday!

Nora said...

It's pretty fabulous isn't it!? I love that we have whatsapp now. Sometimes I miss my BBM but having a super fun smart phone is kind of cool. Even better that we can chat every day!!!!

Stephany said...

I will admit that I don't see what's so cool about BBM. I use it from time to time but I guess I just don't use it much? I just text... what am I missing?! Haha.

Jess said...

See, I’m with Stephany! I don’t have a Blackberry, just a regular old cell phone. And, I really want to know what’s the difference between BBM and texting??!

I am glad you enjoy your Blackberry though!

Leigh said...

I have an old school phone so no fun messaging or internet for me! But right now, that's okay :)

Hope you have a great weekend!

I have to admit, I really don't get the perk of BBM over just regular text messaging. I know that makes me a terrible blackberry user!

Sassy Molassy said...

Haha...i love how technology is such a staple to so many of us now days. I think I love google reader just about the same. And probably if I had a smart phone, i'd be obsessed with it. I'm thinking more about a blackberry torch or a droid or htc phone, but we'll see what happens. I guess I'm sort of waiting for my contract to run up or until I'm elligible for an upgrade bc $30/per month extra is kind of a lot, but I know I would looove being able to check email and read and write blogs via my phone.

You know what? I have a blackberry and I've never even used BBM! Maybe because I have unlimited texts (which I never use, lol)?

Jolene - EverydayFoodie said...

I don't have a fancy phone. Just a regular slider phone (with the full keypad - can't text without it)! I can't check my email, or tweet or surf the net from my phone ... but that's okay. As long as I can make calls and text occasionally, I am happy!

Erin said...

I'm addicted to BBM :) Mr. B. and I talk on it constantly throughout the day :)

Lisa-Marie said...

I use google chat on my Dext for the very same thing. All of Dave's family use it! My tarriff each month is almost worth it for that alone.

Mandy said...

Ok so I'm high tech enough to use BBM, I like to keep it old school, but love that you're willing to put up with old school me and entertain my texts.
