Default 2 deciding questions..

Please Login to Remove!

1) How is the web browsing compared to say a sidekick? I heard about the opera but i cant seem to find it for download on handango or blackberry.

2) Is there any way to use AIM on the blackberry without using text messages? Like a good 3rd party application?

This will decide for me about the blackberry for T mobile (8700g)

Thanks in advance

I think the browsing is fine, but I would go with the 8800 if its that important to you. its much improved and the desktop view is pretty cool. Opera mini is better than the BB browser on the 8700, but I find it annoying that it pops up a box every time you want to enter text into a text field.

Not if you plan to use the factory OZ client. There are other clients, such as JiveTalk, etc, that use data.
