Default Which one?

Please Login to Remove!

Hello!
I am thinking about selling my iPod Touch and getting a Blackberry.
Which blackberry would you suggest?
I need wifi for sure-- I don't need 3G. So have narrowed it down to Bold 9700 and Curve 8900 and Storm2.
What do you think its the best one? I need a really good keyboard because I write a lot of emails.

The "best" is really up to you. First, choose a carrier that has good reception in your area. Then go to that carriers store, see what they offer, handle each one, then choose.

Also, make sure to get a "Blackberry Data plan". Otherwise you will not get full functionality.

Decide which carrier works best where you live, work, play and travel to.
Then pick the BlackBerry.

I'll come right out and say it: 7105t.

1. Proven technology, not some trendy new device.
2. Old school thumb wheel.
3. Outstanding battery life.

Especially since the devices that they are trying to decide on are not all with one carrier. (If the OP is looking to get a subsidy at least)

If you don't want a data plan you should probably get a Nokia E71 or Motorola Q instead of a BlackBerry.
