Thanks NJBlackberry - appreciate the help here ;)
Well - I would say I am on the phone about 1100 minutes a month on average. Your points for moving are valid and I would say I am probably similiar in frustration with re-typing words - I use predictive typing on my phone now if I get a text message and it is slow... The wash out in day-time I have read a lot about - so when you are outside, you literally cannot see it well at all? That's not good. And not the case with the 7290?
So I guess my email usage isn't too heavy - I just know I feel like I use it all the time on the road.
