Thanks for your quick response. I appreciate it. I'm going to be trolling this forum quite a bit. I made the mistake of buying a Treo 680 back in January of last year, but I just couldn't hold out for a BB with the trackball and a reasonable set of features that I needed such as unlimited IM'ing, camera, etc.
The time has come for me to get a BB finally. Unfortunately, a quick glimpse at the amazon website shows "$74.99 (when purchased with new service plan)" and then it goes to list the rebates to imply that we're going to make money off buying the phone. Oh if only it were so!
I've got my brother's fiance (T-mobile customer service rep) on the case, however she isn't working until tomorrow, and I'm pretty dang impatient. I wouldn't mind switching to AT&T for the GPS feature but boy it seems like their overall BB costs per month are extremely high, and I just got done removing my internet plan from my Palm Treo to save me $30 a month. No thanks AT&T!
Thanks again! Any other suggestions from everyone would be greatly appreciated.
