I've never had a blackberry before. I'm thinking about getting the 8520 (affordable), obviously the major issue is the lack of 3G.
On smartphones, 3G is almost a must, as it makes webpages quicker, access on the net quicker, etc. But i'm thinking now, I only want a blackberry for messaging. The only internet related activities I will be doing is Email and Instant messaging. I could care less about web browsing.
Could those with the 8520, 8900, etc with only 2G data tell me if the response of push email compared with 3G's push?
Also, Instant messaging, how does that fare with 3G? If i sent a message on MSN, wouldn't it be immediate (give or take seconds) anyways regardless of 2G or 3G?
