Question help an old lady go BBerry....

Please Login to Remove!

I lost my daughter's Sprint/Nextel phone, so I am giving her mine. and I want to get ME a Blackberry(I think ?) so I can use the day planner, check email, and Ebay stuff (know you guys hate to hear THAT ...anyway, I saw a i7510 for $60. Is this a good one to start on? price? if it is Nextel/Sprint, will it work in any state? it does have a SIM card.....can I get a "book" for it somewhere? Should I just forget the whole thing? I am over 50 and can manage my computer just fine, but not much more technically.........thanks for any help, cause I need it.........OLDladyShopN

The 7510 is a Nextel BlackBerry. For $60 dollars it probably a decent deal. This model is outdated but will still work. You other options with Nextel would be a 7520 or the 7100i. If you get a Sprint BlackBerry your options are 7130e or 8703e. Nextel is very slow when surfing the web. The Sprint device will be MUCH faster if your doing any web browsing.

Agreed, I am looking at other choices beside 7100i - I have had it for a year now, and I really want a model that I can use as a modem for the laptop - The 7100i has been replaced 4 or 5 times, I lost track now - everytime it goes to jvm 102 error - they have to replace it and it takes 2-3 days
