All the time.
The only failure I have had needed a new battery - now it's fine.
I make calls, I read books on it, I keep notes and contact info, I sync it and back it up to my PC.
I have a little music on it but I don't play it - not that I can't, I just don't want to.
I take pictures and occasionally video with it - usually for unexpected things. (For planned photography I have a Canon Digital Rebel with a huge memory card and even bigger battery pack).
It recharges through a standard USB cable.
It has an actual keyboard not one of those swipe it up, down, left, right and then up again stupid, unresponsive touch screens.
It displays what I want in handy, easily read and understood text menus not a bunch of (designed by seemingly 6-year-old marketing idiots) mysterious icons that I have to swipe or poke at with my large fingers.
It doesn't run iOS, Jam Sandwich (or whatever food it is named after this week) or Windows 8 or other bloatware.
It just works; all the time. Give me one good reason to change.

- Of all the things I have lost, it is my mind that I miss the most.
- I vaguely remember having a good memory...
I had a BB and the thing just fell apart - and I look after my phones pretty well. I lost count of the number of times when it just did random weird stuff, or totally refused to play ball or send emails.
A friend of mine went through about 7 in a year due to various things failing and or breaking - and he wasn't the only one I knew of.
It was a running joke we had with anyone who owned one -
"You got a Blackberry?"
"What number is that then?"
"It's the fifth"
I would never would buy a BB again - which is a shame, because I actually think that for business use (emails etc) they were pretty good (when it worked).
