Default Need advice on which BB to buy -fastest internet and most media capable

Please Login to Remove!

I am a Sprint customer and I'm not satisfied with the speed of my Curve 8530. Which BB carried by Sprint has the fastest internet? I also do a lot of downloading of podcasts and music so that is important as well. Is there a BB model avaiable that can play Flash content? If I were to leave Sprint what carrier would be best for what I am looking for? I'm new here so go easy if I posted this in the wrong place. Thanks for helping!

There is no Flash for BlackBerry.

The 9650 Bold is the best device out there for Sprint. It's much better than the 8530. The 8530 is a low end device introduced to get people into a BB for cheap. If you were going to switch carriers you'd want a 9700 or a 9800. Those are the 3 top of the line devices right now.

Speed depends on too many factors outside your control. There is no way to say which would be the "fastest" for you.

As for the best carrier, again you are the only one to determine that - you need to find out which has the best coverage where you plan to use it - where you live, work, travel and play. Once you know that, then pick the device you want.
