Default Treo 700wx user going to BB 8800 series!

Please Login to Remove!

Hey guys I'm new to this forum and the BB device. I am tired of windows and palm unstable OS's. I want a device that's one hand useable and reliable. I have had the treo 700,6700,700p, and I now have the 700wx. All of these phones have been a let down. I really like how the BB's have the direct push feature which I really need. The 8800 series is also very thin and has a very big screen.Not to forget the big keyboard. I tried out the 8703 at the sprint store and loved it. Only thing I didn't like was that there was not a camera. I have been reading through the forums about a verison of the 8800 with a camera. I hope this information is true. I have sprint so I know we will see a cdma verison of the BB later this year. I don't care for the wifi, but the camera is a must. Also can someone with the sprint evdo 8703 verison of the BB tell me how the battery life is on this phone.

Do lots of homework before you go to Blackberry. It is for people who email is very important. Understand that you will have to buy a Blackberry plan additional to your voice plan to have any Blackberry services. The 8800 series with a camera for Sprint is a good way down the road but may be this year.

As far as battery power. Blackberrys do quite well depending on what you are doing. There is IM software that will use a good bit but if you NEED email, PDA services and a good phone, Blackberry will do great for you. If you are looking for entertainment, lots of games and fancy software, Windoz and Palm are still your better choice.
