Must be they are almost ready to come out with a newer model and want to flush out the old inventory.

Free is not uncommon if you are willing to sign up for a contract!

The "cameraberry" will never replace a non-camera Blackberry.

Inpocket, are you talking about my amazon.com plan? If so, youre locked in for 2 years, and it does not include nights and weekends....only 1000min, unlimited email, unlimited web, unlimited text.

Yes sir I am. The tmobile one...

unlimited texts? when I go through the option of selecting the plan it shows unlimited text as an additional 14.99..

1000 minutes with no nights and weekends... seems very inefficient for use as a business phone for a new business

You know, when I signed up it had that same thing, but I didnt select it and when I called t-mo after getting my phone to see all the features I had they told me I had unlimited text messaging.

If thats not the case for you, I believe t-mo offers a 15day return policy without paying the termination fee.

As for the nights and weekends, I think they have a slightly more expensive plan that has 500 more minutes....you can also check with t-mo themselves and see if they can add nights and weekends after you signed up for this plan...

#1 a camera blackberry will never replace a non camera blackberry due to the fact that many corporations will not allow camera phones into buildings because of security reasons. #2 Places like wirefly and amazon have hidden charges and give plans that are really messed up.

..that makes me kinda nervous.. its for my own small busness, thus privacy isnt a factor for me. Im afraid of these hidden charges.. can you tell me more?

secondly, i was holding out for an 8703e for myself (before i opened the business), does it make sense to have 2 blackberries!?

hidden charges....hmmm...there are always taxes and such you need to be aware of that...I always tend to add on usually an $7-10 for all the manner of taxes that the county, state, and fed may charge for your cell phone.

In my opinion of the two bb's, I doubt it....I mean what would the extra bb serve that the first one cant?

nah your def right. my finger is so itchy so just JUMP on the t-mobile deal, but something just smells a little to good to be true..

I can I always add nights/weekends later on, but that would end up totaling what im paying now for verizon. Basically I was on the phone with my partner for about 2 hours figuring out the phone situation.

T-Mobile has the best price, but no n/w, m2m, and a cameraberry coming
Verizon has the coverage (NY), n/w,m2m, IN text, and the 8703e coming

T-mobile at 59.99, Verizon at 79.99..

I CANT DECIDE!!! I really need help because I need the second number!

Only if T-Mo is your current carrier, or provides the same or better coverage than your current carrier.
