Blackberry....Crackberry

By
Real Estate Agent with Tri-Lakes REALTORS

blackberry

I have to say, I love my Blackberry!! This little tool has helped me so much with my business. I never miss an email, can access the MLSany time, access Google maps, organize my day, week, month...life with the calendar and not to mention talk on it too! I love that when I am on vacation, my emails still come through and I can communicate with clients. I always take my laptop along too, but my Blackberry is much easier to carry in my hip pocket or purse. I have managed to get several clients due to my BB as well. Several people have told me that I was the first to respond to their email, therefore, I get the "job". I think it might make my clients more at ease as well knowing they can reach me via email or phone at any time and my response is going to be immediate. My name is Tracy and I love my Crackberry!

Hmmmm. Maybe I need to look seriously into getting one. I do want to be the first to respond to potential client emails.

Good post!

Our little hand held devices are becoming more and more a computer. I went to the iphone (I think just for games) but the BB is what has defined the market

Tracy - you are so right!  I just traded in my TREO 650 for the BB Curve - much to my surprise as I was always one to say I would never get one.  But as the old saying goes never say never.  I really do like it.  Being able to respond as rapidly as this tool let's us really puts us on the front edge.  Was this the first smartphone you've owned? Now we'll have to join the Blackberry group in AR..

Happy cracken!

Thank goodness I am not alone. I never understood the attraction to this, Now I do!!!I just got mine a few weeks ago and I can't believe I ever survived without it. I too am the first to take care of business. I always thought I needed a laptop, but not anymore. At least for now......

I realized it may be getting a bit out of control when my husband asked me why I was taking it to bed with me. I did not even realize I had it with me.Opps.....I am addicted!!!!

Happy Thursday!!

I love mine too! It seems like it has become another extension of me. It really does make life easier and keeping in touch is a breeze. BB Messenger, Text, E-Mail, Internet... Just incredible.

I use this one now, but I'm waiting for the STORM to come to T-Mobile.

It is a great tool.  I have a text message sent to me when anyone emails a listing to themselves and if they leave a contact number I just click on the number and it dials it for me.

Tracy, I love mine too.  I am absolutely lost without it....sigh.  My biggest challenge with it, though is slowing down long enough to make sure I have spelled everything correctly, before hitting the send button, I am getting better though.
