@JSanders, I switched to the 8220 because I want a phone to talk on, because the 8900 was too big to fit in my pocket, and because the apps on my 15-year-old (!) PDA, the HP 200LX, did so much more of what I needed than most of the BB apps.

Keeping contacts on the SIM card made it easy to switch back to my old Samsung phone when I needed a really reliable phone for, say, a road trip. And it meant that I didn't need to transfer any data from old 8220s to newer ones -- which meant that each phone could be "clean", factory-reset, without any possibly-corrupted data from the old phone causing similar problems in the new phone.
