Default BB 7750 Q's.

Please Login to Remove!

Alright all, so far my 7750 has been great for arranging my everyday college life here in Pittsburgh. Everyone tells me to ditch the 7750 and buy the 7250 but simply put I do not have the money for it right now and to be honest I enjoy my 7750 just fine. I don't think its that bad at all. For what I use it for its 10x better than my normal cell phone.

I do not use a data plan as of right now being I do not need it. However I have a few questions. If I did get the data plan from Verizon I would probably end up using AIM the most. Is AIM going to be slow or what not on my 7750? Will it be a pain to use? Will messages be responsive like on a normal computer? Secondly, I would probably use the browser when I'm bored and what not. Will it be unbearably slow? Note I do not need something super fast, just to keep my occupied between classes or when I'm bored and need a fix of internet. Is it really that bad?

Alright, thats all for now. Thanks for any answers.

You should be fine, if the 7750 lags anywhere its in the tasks ie launching apps, web, load times etc. my bud just upgraded to a 7250 but we'd chat all the time via BB Messenger and and AIM or Quick IM (MSN) response time seemed prompt.

As far as web goes are pages going to be too slow to be worth browsing?

Any other input?

The web browser is not worth using except in the $45 per month Verizon unlimited plan. If you can afford $45 per month, you can afford to upgrade to the 7250.

(Do NOT use AIM or web browser on a non-unlimited plan -- you'll be sorry. I remember paying $1000 in cellphone bills over a 3 month period in Dec 2004 - Jan 2005 - Feb 2005 .... all caused by instant messaging and web surfing on Roger's pseduo-unlimited plan capped at 25 megabytes. Hopefully this changes when it is time for Rogers to release the 8700.)

If you want a non-unlimited plan, be prepared to stick to ONLY email.

If you can't afford the money, I suggest an eBay purchased version of the BlackBerry 7280 for approximately $100, and going for T-Mobile's cheap $20-per-month BlackBerry plan. (They have the lowest price for an unlimited BlackBerry plan). To boot, the 7280 is much faster than the 7750, although the screen may not be as bright.

Or just stick to voice only -- keep using the 7750 as a PDA (and phone/text messaging) -- it still does make a better organizer than a notepad and pen, and you can still synchronize to Outlook.
