ps. will my sim card still work? and if it doesnt after getting a new blackberry, will a restore of all the data i backed up be enough?
I had an Ipaq pocket pc that was ruined by water. A $500 loss.
Good news for you is you can get an 7520 off of ebay for less than $100.
I just upgraded my 7510 to a 7520 that I paid $67 on ebay, works great so far.
As for the ipod, maybe you might like the creative brand mp3 players, less than $100 and you can use AAA batteries instead of waiting to re-charge your batteries.I've been using the creative players for almost 2 years, I prefer them over the ipod.
btw, I do have an ipod 20gig that I don't use ,if you want to buy it, I guess I could sell it for $100.
