Default 6750 Question Please Help

Please Login to Remove!

I am new to Blackberry but fairly saavy with respect to technology. I have not had a need for a mobile email device in the past. I have been using a LG clamshell phone with a keyboard that has worked fine but mobile web is too limiting. I really want the next generation of the 8700 series that will open WAV files, have voice commands, wifi etc. and do not want to put much into a device now while I wait. I am a Verizon customer. I see that people are dumping the old black and white 6700s and wonder if it would work for me temporarily. I just need it to send and receive emails (only get maybe 20 a day) occassionally open a pdf or word document though not critical, light web browsing mostly for directions (mapquest), some scheduling and a phone. I am on a Mac so I will need to use Pocketmac to sync it. I am guessing that a black and white screen eats less battery energy. I know the memory is limiting but don't plan on lots of third party sw. I do plan on upgrading to BB 4.0 OS. Can I open PDF and Word files with a 6750 through Verizon and not a BES server? Is there anything that I mentioned that would not work with a 6700. I don't know what it will do out of the box. I know the 7200 opens word docs, pdfs etc but I can get a 6750 for $20 or less! Any suggestions, advice, etec. would be appreciated. By the way the reason I don't upgrade is so as not to get trapped into a contract and then not have an upgrade option if the BB of my dreams gets released, which might be shortly. Thanks for all of your help.
