Just got me thinking... The company I work for, as part of my job, mandates that I have a blackberry. Useful enough for me work wise (even if it does have that ability to get to you to do 'work' anywhere) and has proven very useful for my personal life too, just being able to pick up personal email, etc. Seems to be the standard rule that it's OK to use the phone for personal use, but don't take the pee. I've never been brought up on it, I just use the phone, not that many calls and the odd text, a very small amount really. However, the company has decided that provider X is now being ditched in favour of provider Y (god knows why, they are pretty low on the UK ratings in general for service and signal), and it looks like since costing will be moved, then monthly costs for each phone will be more stringent, to the point where I might have to get another phone for personal calls / texts. There might also be a knock on effect that if we get our own mobiles, then we will pay less attention to the company blackberrys ourside working hours and this doesn't always work particulary well when you work with a company that operates mainly in the US and thus the odd out of UK hours email might come in. What are your experiences of using company mobiles for personal use like? Do you have to itemise your personal calls yourself? Allowance taken from your pay? Or do you just use it 'as is' as I do..?
