Default Replacement for WE8830

Please Login to Remove!

My 8830 is several years old and I'm having problems maxing out the OS memory. I'm to the point of considering replacing it with another BB, but not sure what model to go with. Having a camera is not important. Want to stay with a Qwerty keyboard.

The 9650 Bold is a great device.

The Bold 9650 is currently the king of the CDMA "world phone" BlackBerrys. Extraordinary piece of kit.

I went from my 8830 to a Storm (hated it) then a Tour (loved it) and am now running a Bold 9780 which I also like. Anything you go to will be an upgrade.
