The 8900 does everything I need it to do, and well! Yes it's not a speed demon, but that's what I have my personal line runnin an iphone 3Gs for. For email, great call quality, texting, mms and bbm, the phone is steller! I was going to wait for the new Bold 9700, but to tell u the truth, I luv the 8900's keyboard! All in all, a good decision by picking one up!
