Thanks so far for all the responses.
I am a little nervous about sprint. Everything that is going on in the news (loss of 100 million subscribers and a $211 Million dollar loss makes me fear there will be some sort of "come to jesus" moment in the near future. Can anyone fill me in a bit more with their service? When I am roaming (which I would be at home and in most of the state) will I still be able to access almost all my features? If not, what do I lose?
I don't know whether or not I need Ev-Do. As I have never had a blackberry (but am so anxious to get one) I am not sure if I will suffer with the 1X data that my current provider gives. Does anyone know about the difference in transfer rates between Ev-Do and 1X?
It's a good point that with the Garmin I don't need the GPS, but it would be nice if I am out of town and don't know where I am. (making BB maps a little useless)
Thanks for all the help. I know I am struggling a bit, but I want to make sure whichever decision I make, it works out so I can join the ranks of the many crackberry user and abusers.
