I tend to turn mine off for DAYS... not really hours... Saturday and Sunday if you haven't planned ahead, don't bother calling.... lecky1217 8 years i know what you mean! lol. i like doing it sometimes but sometimes it makes me feel disconnected from the rest of the world...and makes me panic lol kendalheart 8 years I dont have a blackberry but i have a phone and i loooove turning it off...its fun when people cant get ahold of you but then people freak like where are you, are you okay??
