Default which 88xx BB?

Please Login to Remove!

I have a htc touch right now, and using t-mobile
I'm planning on buying a BB 88xx series. but I don't know which one to get
most important to me would be MSN, and web browser. GPS would be nice too.
What do you guys recommend?

i do have another question.
i believe that there is a IM service for the blackberry, and free sending IM's to other people who also have blackberry IM.
is it free sending overseas as well? since i live in the USA and my gf is in HK

You need a BlackBerry Data Plan to use Blackberry Messenger.
If you have a BlackBerry Data Plan (which you said you weren't going to get) you'd get BlackBerry Messenger usage included in that data plan.

Oh i will get the BB Data plan in the states, just not in HK.
so BB messenger isn't like SMS. it's more like MSN and AIM
is that correct?

Yes, that's correct.
BB Messenger is more like AIM/MSN than SMS.
It's an IM chat client exclusive to BlackBerry devices. It uses PIN messaging (also exclusive to BlackBerry) as its transport.

Yeah, that's great for you... but the OP is a T-Mobile user, so the 8830 is worthless to them.
