A couple of newbie questions, if you don't mind. Glad I found this place -- looks very helpful.
I had a blackberry at my previous firm (a RIM 957, I believe) and had very good luck with it. At my current firm, we have goodlinks -- they worked OK, but when I upgraded to the treo 650 with Sprint I found that the mail coverage sucked and the phone quality is awful.
So now a friend and I are starting our own business. He's old school and prefers a email-only blackberry and a separate cell phone. I'm leaning that way as well, as the Treo 650 has left a bad taste in my mouth.
Are the RIM 957 or Blackberry 5790 still viable? (That's assuming that I can find ones, as the carriers don't seem to be offering them and the few I have found have been at outrageous prices, given their age). Assuming the users want email-only, any major disadvantages these days in terms of coverage, etc. that should deter us?
Any advice is much appreciated.
