Default -which one to choose?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi guys !

I am new here! Just joined today. I need some help, since I am buying a Blackberry very soon. It will be my first one. Just need some advices which one to buy. I really want the curve 8900, but need some advices. I was considering the Storm and Bold as well, but I am not a big fan of touchscreens and Bold is a little to ''big'' for what I want.

The choices are curve 8900, tour or the pearl 3g. Any others? Which one should I go for?

Thanks!

Bold 9700 is the same size (roughly) as the 8900.
The Bold 9000 is the bigger model.

The tour is primarily CDMA, although GSM, it depends which carrier you plan to use it with as to whether it will work.

Pearl 3G is not yet released.

And only you can decide which model is better for you.

First of all, pick the cell carrier you plan to use. It helps if we know that. Also put it in your profile. Pick the one that provides the best coverage when and where you plan to use it - where you live, work, travel and play.

Then decide how you plan to use the device, what features you want and which you really need.

Then pick the device.

This is the most important thing to do first. A carrier with limited service in your area will cause any cell phone to respond poorly.

I will buy an unlocked one. No speciality though. Yeah I completely forgot the bold 9700. Now my options are two actually, the Curve 8900 or the Bold 9700.

I want a cell phone for entertainment, something stylish, a cell phone capable of almost everything, so I do not regret after some months, a fast cell, one which does not crash and good internet connection.


Which one is fastest?

the 3G is off course an advantage. But I really do not need the 3g rigth now.

What are the main differences?

Anyone who have had both phones, who can tell their subjective opinion?

Thanks guys! Tough choice!

Still no idea where you are, please note that an at&t/rogers 9700 will not work with 3G on t-mobile US, and a t-mobile US 9700 wont work on at&t/rogers/etc 3G.

Sorry dude! I live in Norway. Not sure if Trigcom (only BB provider) offers 3G. I will make a profile very soon
