    BlackBerry Twelve-Step Program

    Step 1 - We admitted we were powerless over our BlackBerry addiction - that our lives had become unmanageable (without certain third-party apps like BBFileScout)

    Step 2 - Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity (WiFi would help)

    Step 3 - Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of BBOSGod as we understood BBOSGod

    Step 4 - Made a searching and fearless inventory of our apps and files

    Step 5 - Admitted to BBOSGod, to ourselves and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs (everyone has pondered whether an iPhone was for them at least once)

    Step 6 - Were entirely ready to have BBOSGod remove all these defects of leaky apps

    Step 7 - Humbly asked BBOSGod to post our shortcuts

    Step 8 - Made a list of all files that have leaked memory, and became willing to make amends to all their developers

    Step 9 - Made direct amends to such developers wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others or our BlackBerry

    Step 10 - Continued to take file and app inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it

    Step 11 - Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with BBOSGod as we understood BBOSGod, praying only for knowledge of BBOSGod's will for us and the power to carry out official and leaked OS upgrades

    Step 12 - Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to other BlackBerry addicts, and to practice these principles in all our affairs

    I am sure you could do both. BlackBerry users are notorious multitaskers.

    This is brilliant.
    Thank you for the laugh.

    The Twelve Steps are for everyone else. You are Eru Illuvatar, and we are merely your creations. O Elendil! O Elbereth!
