Smile New user ...Old question 8707G or 8310 ?

Please Login to Remove!


I have the choice of 3 Blackberry's 8120 Pearl, 8707G and 8310 Curve ...and I am a little confused . My key requirements are Bluetooth and Global roaming ( US , Europe, ASIA and Japan), GPS would be a bonus ....

Any advice ?

Many Thanks ... Garry

Pretty sure that if you must have BB in Japan, you are limited to the 8707, as that is the only 3G model which works there. It does not have GPS.

Correct if japan is necessary 8707 is your best bet. Other than that go 8310 or 8120
