Default 8900 isn't a 3G phone

The 8900 is an awesome phone but since it isn't 3G you don't have to worry about the Orange network not having a stronger 3G network.

The 8900 is basically a 9700 minus 3G and minus a trackpad. So you are going to transfer DATA over EDGE all over Europe anyway. Pick whoever is cheaper and has the best coverage in your home.

And on a blackberry...edge is pretty good. They use proxy servers for data and their push email is just as fast on Edge as 3G.

At the moment, Orange has given me better package and I intend to discuss with O2 as I'm currently with them and they might give me the similar deal.
I'd mainly use blackberry for emails and browsing internet.

I'm in central London so I should get quite good network coverage, but if the service package is almost the same, which network would you go for under this circumstance? Some people said O2 has some issue with 3G....

Please share your insights which provider you'd recommend and its reason.
Thanks in advance!
