You never know when that emergency BBM status update will be required.
BlackBerry users once praised their devices with a fierce fire that only loyal iPhone users could rival, but 56 per cent of BB owners now plan on switching to an Apple handset.
That said, BlackBerry still has a strong following and surveyed its users to find out how addicted they are to their devices:
* 39.7 per cent admit to sleeping with their BB under their pillow
* 53.46 per cent said it's never too far away
* Seven per cent claim to leave it in a different room during their slumbers
The pillow-based BB storage shows how reliant users have become on their devices and is reminiscent of data that showed mobile users have started hallucinating to imagine 'phantom vibrations' from their phones.
