You posted less than 45 minutes ago. I guess Instant Gratification is the name of the game.

Get the Pearl. It is hip, cool and has a camera.

Yes, the Pearl is the ticket for you. I use it....and, of course, I'm hip and cool!

Seriously, it's a great phone. Be sure and get a Blackberry Data Plan as you may be disappointed without it. TMo, is generally the cheapest at $19.99 for the Blackberry Data add-on to your voice plan.

Good luck, let us know if you need any other help.

Hi I agree with the Pearl and also T-Mobile. I have a 1000 minute a month plan with unlimted, E-Mail, SMS, Internet access for about $65.00 with all taxes. I would first however go to Tmobile.com and check to see the coverage in the areas you will be using the BB Pearl. The Inteltype keyboard takes a little getting use to, but will work fine once you get the hang of it.

Pick your carrier first but the Pearl sounds like it's the best match.
