BlackBerry smartphones are used both as business and personal devices. They achieved some unwelcome notoriety during the UK's 2011 riots when the secure BlackBerry messaging service was used by rioters to communicate and organise while hidden from police surveillance. You create a BlackBerry ID when you get a new device and it gives you access to your email account, the BlackBerry Apps World and variety of other services. As long as you can find the original email confirming your registration, deleting your account is a relatively straightforward process.
