Default Curve 8900 and Bold 9700 (also need comparison with Bold 9000)

Please Login to Remove!

so long story short- i went from Bold 9000 to iphone 3g and 2 months later i come back to get a new berry for me. and now I came to you guys and ask yall few questions-

I am regular user, is Bold 9700 worth the money or 8900 will do the same task for lot less money ?

also, some people said to me that I should go on and get Bold 9000 again instead of 8900? any suggestions ?

8900 = 2G
9000 = 3G
9700 = 3G

8900 = 256mb memory for apps
9000 = 128mb memory for apps
9700 = 256mb memory for apps

It really depends on your needs, your wants and your carrier. You are really the only one who can make that call.

You didn't give us anything to go on so that is where it stands.

The 9700 also has a trackpad which is a deciding factor for some.

Speed depends on several factors, mostly out of your control.

When you compare EDGE with 3G, EDGE is barely faster than dialup. 3G can be faster. Where you notice it is surfing the web and using data intensive apps. Email will come and go without a flicker. You might also see a considerable advantage going to 3G if you tether.

I have a 9700 and the key points for me where the trackpad and good memory, and I'm on T-Mobile, but as stated already, it's up to you what features you want/use the most will swing your vote towards which model you get.
