I'm new to the Blackberry - and have started with a T-Mobile 8700g.
I bumped it, and had to get a replacement - it would not come on - just a red light for a few secs. - probably could have been fixed with a reinitialization/reload of software.
In any event, I was able to get a new one - because it was within 14 days of purchase (it looked fine, i didn't mention the bump). I recently dropped mine again on cement, and put a few scratches in the plastic where pebbles gouged it. But it still works fine.
I was wondering, would I be able to use a different model, as a spare, say one from eBay, like a 72x0 series? My service uses edge ... will my 8700g work when edge is not available? Will I be able to use an edge-incapable Blackberry, as a spare and still get internet email, browsing, etc. wirelessly? I don't use Blackberry Enterprise.
I like the full keyboard, decent screen, etc. Which would you recommend as a (cheap) spare Blackberry? Should I consider the 6 and 7 series? I want to spend <= $100.00 - can I use unlocked, or only T-Mobile branded, etc.
