So far we like the BES better than the Good. BES gives us a ton of options that the Good server did not.

Raleigh NC as well,
Nextel
7520

Great coverage in my area, although the 7520 with a brand new SIM ran really slow, and would hang up all the time. I popped in an older SIM (7510) and everything works perfectly.

we currently use BES, and are testing GoodLink (are you guys going through MobilityIT?)

I personally like the BES/Blackberry better myself. I am demoing a Sprint PPC6600 Windows Device with GoodLink and I can't stand it.

Default Locations and coverage

we have several clients all over .. here's the breakdown that we noticed

NY - Verizon - great coverage in the city and on the trains
Atlanta GA - T-mobile work fine
Ohio - T-mobile works fine
Seattle WA - T-mobile
Flordia - T-mobile
Outside the U.S - T-mobile without a doubt!

Overall if you're looking to save money T-mobile have the best prices with perhaps some calls drop .. not many. T-mobile customer service is GREAT! - They've recently won awards for this - check out the stats online Verizon has a pretty nifty network that really get the job done especially in NY they have no comptetion there besides maybe Nextel (not bad). ( I hear there customer service isn't that great) Cingular I expect big things once their network transformation is complete. Nexel is pretty nifty... specfically the two way (they've got all carriers bet on the feature)

Devices:

#1 - As of now 7290 is the leader.
#2 - As of now 7100t - even though this device I would say isn't for your everday email typing friend it's a sure shot for sleekness and mobility. The speakerphone is what really gives this device an advantage over the 7290.
#3 7230 - By default because of the color display.

I'm open to share as much info as possible with this group. If anyone has any question feel free to ask.

A nice addition to this thread would have been a poll with just the carriers to see the comparision of the different carriers on the forum.
Cingular
Verizon
Telus
Nextel and so on and so on.

Maybe on the next one.

Good point Dawg, but it wouldn't have given me the details I was originally looking for. I wanted to know about quality with what devices in addition to which carrier.

We can always start another thread with a poll if people are interested.

To everyone else: I'm still amazed by the response this thread has had. It's been extremely helpful for me, and I hope everyone has gotten something out of it too.
It's a great compiliation of carrier/device combos that either work or don't work - Invaluable info for anyone thinking of switching carriers or jumping on the blackberry bandwagon.

Lets keep the responses coming, since the more info available the better the picture becomes on an ongoing basis

I know that the poll wouldnt have given the results you were looking for, you could have posted that underneath the poll let them post what phone and city then. just would have been cool to see what service is used most with out having to scroll through each post.

Default BB Coverage in MN and WI

In the Twin Cities (Minneapolis/St Paul) area in Minnesota.

BB 7510

Nextel service

Coverage is ok to poor. In the metro area is fine. But if you go outside the metro, coverage is bad. Either calls drop or zero coverage.

I'm in North Carolina using Verizon Wireless and have a BlackBerry 7250. I love the device itself and my coverage is great. There are certain areas where I know coverage is not the greatest but that comes with any carrier.

I am in a rural area north of Tampa, Florida. I have a 7520 BB running on the Nextel network.

I LOVE the BB. Nextel service is really getting bad in the last 6 months. A lot of problems trying to call people, DC people, etc. The data stuff seems to work fine, but their phone network in this area is overloaded.

I am in Cleveland, Ohio with Verizon. My 7250 will arrive tomorrow, so I cant comment too much on that, but my Verizon cell service has been excellent through the whole area. Ive never had a problem except in my office at work, but its a concrete room 3 stories underground. If I go out in the hall, im fine.

Ill give more info when my BB arrives.
