Default considering switching to bold. some questions

Please Login to Remove!

i've been with verizon wireless for a number of years but was with cingular years back. i've been considering switching to att and getting the bold. i've been using the pearl and then curve with verizon. anyway, i have a couple of questions. can you use bb messenger on the bold and still messenger people on verizon wireless? also, can you use any gps navigation program with the bold? for example, the garmin mobile app? with verizon i can only use the vz navigator. any advice would be appreciated.

that's great to here. i use bb messenger often. i don't use text messaging much. my only concern was always about receiving texts from people on verizon or sending texts to people on verizon. will one of us pay more or extra since we're not on the same network? the only thing is that many of the mobile apps don't seem to say that they are compatible with the bold.
