hey everyone, is there anything different between the cingular and t-mobile blackberry pearl? i currently have verizon and i know that they are getting the 8830, and i've heard rumors that they are also getting the pearl...but if they dont, i might switch carriers, plus i like the ability that i can just switch the sim card and everything is switched over...which t-mobile and cingular have, if i switched i would probably get the pearl and the 8800 to switch back and is there any difference between the 2 phones and the carriers?

Switching back and forth isn't that easy. Yes, you can simply move the sim from one phone to the other but that will only switch the phone and data connection. The PIN associated with your BIS accounts needs to be changed each time as well.

The difference you will notice right away is the price plans. It's cheaper to go to T-mobile.

The only real diffrence is the color of the case. The insides are all the same.
Unlocked 8100c w/ 1 gb microSD, BSE total body skin, and rubberized case or silicone skin.
