"I have anxiety that I will run out and I won't be able to have a BlackBerry," Kardashian West announced during the Re/code mobile conference on Monday, admitting that she needs three replacements available at all times in case her phone breaks.

The reality TV star acknowledged that her mobile addiction surprises most people, stating "I love a BlackBerry, and every time I say that, people are horrified that I have a BlackBerry, and I don't understand that reaction."

Despite having an iPhone, which she uses solely "for photos" and social media, Kardashian West, who has over 24 million Twitter followers, says she needs "to feel that [key]board" when handling emails, referring to the BlackBerry keyboard.
