if you've always used a regular cellphone and are using a 7100-like cdma device as your first bb, then you'll love it.
my two cents. ive used a gprs 7100 series device and had to switch back.
I agree with your 2 cents.... I had bought a 7100 with rogers but did not like the keyboard layout. I thought I could get use to it but I was wrong. I sold it and bought a 7750 with telus and just love the QWERT layout
I recommened testing out a unit before buying one. See if a friend has one you can use, or go into the store and test out one of the demo units there. Try typing a memo and see how you do. Of cource practice makes perfect and you cant make a conclusion just by playing around with it for for minutes.... but you do get kind of an idea.
