Default Droid, Incredible or Blackberry?

Please Login to Remove!

As previously posted I want to just check emails, FB, go online, etc. throughout the day.
I was just reading up again and heard about the Incredible or something. But it doesnt have BBM.
Do I need BBM? My fiance and I are going to get the same phones so we wanted to be able to chat all day.

Its a personal choice and the best advice you will get is this:

Go to a store and play with the floor model of each one for a bit.

BBM is just IM for Blackberry's only. The nice thing about BBM is that messaging over it is free, as long as you buy a Blackberry Data Plan with your carrier.

They should be all free over your data plan. I use bbm, aim and googles.

Some apps use "data" and others use text messages to effect the communication. I believe that now most of them use "data" but previously, AIM and Yahoo used text messaging... Just be sure the one you choose does, in fact, use "data" and you won't have to worry about text message charges.

Default Going Back To The BlackBerry Curve

Two weeks ago, I went to the Verizon Wireless Store. I took advantage of an "early upgrade," and I purchased the HTC Incredible. What I miss most about the BlackBerry Curve is its ease of use, the mechanical keypad, and the trackball. Not only that, but I am constantly fat fingering the touchscreen keyboard on the Incredible, and sending text messages and e-mail has become a real challenge. I have, therefore, determined that I will take advantage of Verizon's 30 day return and exchange policy, and I will be going back to the BlackBerry Curve.
