So, I heard him on the radio talking about the party and how he didn't think he was going to try the phone at all. Well, being the BlackBerry addict that I am, I immediately contacted him via Twitter and told him he should really give it a try.
I have since been in contact with him several more times, and it would appear that I have managed to convince him to try it out.
Hmmmmm. I'll let you know how it turns out :-)
