For myself,

Yes I still have a full service broker that I rarely use. My RSP is self-directed however.

Reasons for keeping my TD Waterhouse Account? I like being able to call up someone in the markey occassionally and talk to a person regarding direction and options. Also it's a means of keeping accounts physically seperate (I bank with CIBC, RSP is with Royal Bank and broke is TD) so I can keep better track of what I'm doing with my money. Call it financial planning and identity theft buffers.
