Default To buy or not to buy!? Help Urgently please

Please Login to Remove!

Hello I'm new to this, as you probably know
I've always used the site but never registered as member

my problem is I an going to buy my 2nd blackberry tomorrow at 1pm my first blackberry was the 8900 curve which I loved but due to me throwing it at a wall it couldnít be fixed

so tomorrow I'm buying the blackberry 9500, I'm just in two minds whether to buy it or not?
I know the positives and negatives about the phone, I'm just generally thinking is it worth buying and does it match up to or even better than the blackberry 8900
I've used touch screen phones before because I have a iphone, so that isnít a problem

I really want the phone, but I heard that vodaphone have stooped making the phone because of complaints and problems, like the phone crashing, touch screen being unresponsive etc. the phone is on vodaphone so I'm just wondering if anything happends to it, im screwed

if anyone who has the phone or used it, could help me before 5-11-2010 by 1pm GMT time in London

would be a life saver. thanks

Its an old phone. They replaced it with the 9520, which itself is a bit old now.
The touchscreen on the 9500 is nothing like an iphone and the experience will be totally different.
I'd say, not to buy.

Don't even consider it!

Using one for a year now and really unhappy. Network Strength is poor compared to other BB's. Screen went dead and was replaced under warranty. Hangs, crashes, memory leaks...

The whole 'clicky' screen idea is not properly thought out.

Stay away from the Storm and put the Bold series.

9500 is a great phone maybe a little short on memory I use the 9520 similar but with double the memory we in our group own 3 9520 and 2 9500 no problems or complaints good touch screen and our vodaphone gives a 2 year warranty I'd go for it or wait for the torch coming early 2011

Go ahead and buy the 9500. So you have another BB to throw at a wall.
Sheesh... I'd never admit to doing something like that.
