Default Choice of new BB

As a UK user on Orange, can someone recommend which BB to upgrade to, either a 9500 or 9530.

Thanks

I don't think the 9530 is available on Orange is it?

I would recommend the 9520, a GSM device as Orange is a GSM network.

Orange doesnt sell the Storm at all, its vodafone exclusive.
You would need to purchase an unlocked one.
9500 (Storm 1) or 9520 (Storm 2).

i will go for an storm2 or a 9700...

But actually I believe it is not available on the market... My 8900 works like a charm... And I can bet on it.... Mines is from T-Mobile UK... So I believe you may have access to it...

Never the less wait a little bit longer for the 9700 if you have credit for it... wish i have one in my hands...

BR....

Sorry I was misleading . I have a BB on a Orange contract, when I upgrade I will stick with Orange - cos I have to, I just wanted to know if either of those phones worked in the UK with Orange. Or does it not matter, yes I would get one unlocked anyway.
Is there any difference

Like we mentioned, the 9500 or the 9520 will work in the UK.
(Storm 1 or Storm 2)
Or as hell said, the 9700 is coming soon to Orange, if you'd like a physical keyboard not a touchscreen.
