Default Need a BlackBerry Recommendation

Please Login to Remove!

Hey all.

I'm currently serving my National Service in Singapore and they don't allow the usage of camera phones within the camp. I was wondering if you guys could recommend me a BB that does not have a camera. The one i know so far is the 8830 which if i am not wrong is the most recent non-camera BB out there.

Thing is, my gf will be moving to Canada to study while i'll still be stayin in Singapore for another 1 and a half years. My aim to get a BB is so that i can use the internet functions therefore allowing me to email her or chat with her without spending a bomb on my phone bills. The phone operators here provide some BB plans that comes with unlimited data usage which i am guessin would still be cheaper than if i were to call/sms my gf through normal means.

Apart from recommendation, would you guys happen to know if there is anyway i can make calls through the internet? like say Skype or somthing?


Anyways, thats all i can think of for now. I hope to hear from you guys soon.

Cheers and regards,

Justin

No SKYPE client for the BB.

If you have a BB with WIFI you can make VOIP calls with the appropriate application. Do a search on the internet.
