I carry or wear 7290 now for 6 months after using 7230 for 2 years.
I am deaf and the BB is considered as a cellphone to me although I never use phone. I use the $29 per month for data - voice barred data plan. why need a phone if I cant hear?
I use calendar, calculator, Ramble IM, TZones for news, MemoPad for grocery list, BB411 for directions, (yes I am a man asking for directions), BB messenger, and even alarm clock to wake me up from naps at work... (heh).
I use BB to contact many deaf people all over the nation and even from Central America and Austrailia.
BB is a must need for the deaf although many of them dont know it. they prefer Sidekick II (duh). They dont know a good thing if they have not tried BB.
