I'm a dedicated Mac user who recently moved to an area with minimal (at best) AT&T coverage. The new iteration of the iPhone has already proved to be inadequate when pulling in weak signals.
My one big option is to get a Blackberry with VZW. Here are my questions:
1. my primary use would be for (apart from the phone) email. I have a POP
, and am wondering if this can be accessed with a Blackberry. Not having push email isn't as important as a handheld that checks periodically, say every 15 minutes or so.
2. my one major concern is being able to sync my BB with my MacBook--my contacts, email addresses, calendars, etc. I know there are two Mac-dedicated sync programs, but am not sure which is best for my needs. I have no corporate account, as I work for myself, by the way, so a corporate email isn't an issue here.
3. thirdly, which model should I get? My daughter in NYC has the 8830, the global BB, which she loves, and I expect that would be fine for my uses. Can someone help out a newcomer so when I do buy a BB I'll have some information at hand?
Thanks in advance!
