Default 1st Time User - Which model

Please Login to Remove!

Hi this is my 1st time here and I am looking into getting a blackberry for the 1st time. I currently have a sidekick and a nextel 1850. Im looking at the blackberry becuase i want to begin using just one device instead of two. my main concern is phone usuage and aim then email and web browsing. I would be using it for personal resons so i wont be needing what i believe is called a BES. I was looking at the new treo but i dont really need all the extra features that the treo offers such as movie play back etc. Plus I have heard that backberrys are very reliable. I was looking at the 8700 models and have also heard about the 1730c coming to cingular. Im not sure which one would be right for me or which service i should go with. I know the sprint and nextel blackberry plans are very expensive with data and a phone plan. How does the 8700 compare to the sidekick and treo in size? one of my main problems with the sidekick is that it is just too big and ackward for me to use as a phone. If anyone has any suggestions or comments please respond. Thanks
