Hi Everybody

I'm new here so I need a little bit of a guidance. I'm using currently the apple Iphone at AT&T, I have the iphone 3g, the thing is that I really need for my business to be online and receive emails all day long, with the iphone it's not that good, all my businessman friend tells me i'd better move to blackberry. and now to the question, which one should I get? there the blackberry Tour and the the new storm 2 or should I wait to the bold 9700 ? I'd really like the experts opinon here

Thanks

John

Welcome John

This subject comes up regularly and the answer is this....There is no way for anyone to tell you which handheld will work best for you. The first thing you need to decide is if you are going to stay with AT&T or move to a different carrier. Once the carrier is decided, drop by a store and lay hands on all the models. I personally use the Storm because I love the screen size. You will find many on here that would not go near a Storm. To each his own.

I will say this, you will not be disappointed making the move to BB. It is a business tool unlike any other.

Good Luck in your search.

Question

Hi

first of all thanks for your answer

I think I'm gonna go and switch to verizon they seem to have a good network and a nice coverage around my area (bay area).

Regarding the phone, I think I can get a good deal on the blackberry Tour So i'm gonna go with this one I think

Any idea?

Thanks

What type of email account(s) do you have? From what I've seen, ActiveSync on the iPhone isn't too bad. You might want to give it a shot if you can migrate but that may not be possible if you have an established business email account. Just be aware that even the BB can't magically transform a POP account into a push email account.

Try out devices in person. Most BB users have a strong preference when it comes to keyboard, device size/weight/"feel" etc.
