What model to get depends on what features you want. Do you want a full QWERTY or will SureType work? Do you want a camera and media card, or is that not important? My best guess is that you will look at either an 8700 or 8100. Go to the store and play around with both and see which you like better.

As far as what carrier to get, you should choose the one that has the best coverage where you are. I have T-Mobile and couldn't be happier.

Which network works best for you in the following locations:

- home
- office/school
- Travel

If you need one now, get the 8700 from the carrier that meets your needs. If you can wait an unknown period of time, get the 880 which is not out yet and no one has a definitive release date.

Choosing the carrier is based on the same principles as real estate - location, location, location. Which works best FOR YOU where you need it.

like you said you want to a keyboard so i would go with the 8700 and see who has a better signal in your area as for i cingular is the best in nj NYC area or CO VT MA MASS the north east is coverd pretty well in the cingular network i am not sure how the west coast is. as for the E mail its amazing ill tell you i have had alot of new phones and there is nothing i mean nothing that will come close to a blackberry even if they say it has blackberry connect. i had had $700 phones and nothing beats the 8700 or 7700 or blackberry itself .good luck keep us posted on what u do
