Default Blackberry 7100t , Right Choice????

Please Login to Remove!

Hello, Just invested in my first Blackberry , the 7100t, so I'm new to the club. So far I like many of the features, but I'm not sure if going this route was the right choice for my needs. I'm in outside sales, email is important, but a good cell phone / PDA combo with a good PIM is most important to me. I use ACT! and so far it has worked pretty well with the 7100t. I've tried a Treo 600 and the HP Ipaq 6315 smartphones. Any honest feedback on my choice to go BB would be appreciated.
Thanks!

As a very unique 7100T user has said it before..

If your looking for a phone with email, get a 7100t.

If your looking for email with a phone.. get another blackberry.

That's a good way to put it! It was really a toss-up for me. My first experience with a BB was the Nextel 7510. I didn't really like the bulkiness of that one, nor the antenna, but did like the speakerphone. I then moved to the 7230 - loved the slimmer form factor and no antenna, but missed the speakerphone. I now own a 7100T and am loving the speakerphone and the more phone-like form factor. I use the push emails at nights and on weekends to monitor emails from 'the big boss' so I can be super responsive. But I don't do a whole lot of mailing with it. The 7100T is a great convergent device for my purposes.

If I were in outside sales and was a heavy ACT! user, I would investigate which device would synch best with ACT!...that would be my biggest consideration. I'm not an ACT! user, so I can't offer any suggestions there...
