Please Login to Remove!

My contract is up soon and therefore I due a upgrade. I've currently got a Pearl 8120 and have been offered the same again, a Bold 9000 or Pearl Flip 8220.

Which one should I get?

Default The Bold

I would go with the Bold as well. The flip is nice looks better than the one I have now. I just haven't gotten used to the key pad. Probably for that reason alone I'm going to upgrade to the Bold or Curve. I will say this about the flip, it makes a nice upgrade/gift for an older, mature teen.

I tried the flip, hated it. Did not like havin' to open it all the time to do anything, and it is designed weird so it's not got something to pry open one-handed all that easy.

I tried the Curve, but I hate to say I'm hooked on the small form-factor of the smaller Pearl now. I used to change phones every year, but I'm headin' into my 3rd year with my Pearl and still lovin' it.

The Bold has a lot of nice features, but it is a brick. Way too big for my liking.

I played with a Flip in the T-Mobile store. The device looked and felt goofy. I had a Razr way back and the Flip is no where near a sleek as a Razr. It actually felt very cheap and plasticy.

I would stick with your 8120 if there is nothing wrong with it and wait to see if RIM is going to release a next generation candybar Pearl. That is my plan. I love the Pearl's small form factor.
