Well, my time with a blackberry was short.
Coming from a TMobile Sidekick 2, I was looking forward to all the great features of the 8700 and receiving i thought it was going to be great, but so much trouble with the data plan through Cingular has prompted me to cancel my service with them after 4 days and send back the phone.
I was so much more satisfied with T-Mobile. They have great minute and data plans, and I rarely had a coverage issue with them.
I dont know at this point whether or not I will go back to a Sidekick 2, another Blackberry (7100?), go with a Treo 650 or wait for TMobile to issue an 8700c, but I would like to thank the moderators and users of this site for attempting to help me through the problems I had.
It's a great community, and hopefully I'll come back to it someday.
