Judging by how much I hate my blackberry now (I'm a paralegal), I don't think I'll be itching to get a new handheld any time before the end of law school at least.
What makes you hate it?
1) Being a paralegal is a crappy job.
2) Having a BlackBerry means there is potential for my crappy job to interfere with my life after-hours.
3) Thus, I hate my BlackBerry.
It has nothing to do with the machine itself...other than the fact that my firm prevents me from using it to access the Internet to boot, which makes me resent it even more.
A lot of the attorneys I work with hate theirs too; a seventh-year associate I am working with on a project out-of-town now has actually managed to avoid getting
one since the beginning of his career, which I find admirable.
