Buying A Blackberry! HELP!! please!

by Dj Mikey G / May 16, 2010 8:10 AM PDT

Buying a new Blackberry... Not for me though. I have no idea when it comes to Blackberry's, whats new and whats not. I am looking for a brand new Blackberry or one that is coming out Late June of this year. Any suggestions? Or any features that are new and are a must for new blackberry owners? What do you think about the Blackberry perl 3g or the new blackberry bold? The carrier does not matter. So any blackberry is fair game! As long as its new and has tons of new features! thank you for your time and care!

fast enough? or just way to slow and outdated comapaired to other smartphones? And will the Blackberry pearl 3g be liable for the blackberry 6 update or is that just for touch screen phones?

Please feel free to add as many details about the phone and the new operating system! thanks once again =]

i have a silly question

Why would you want to buy a 3G blackberry from a particular carrier that didn't offer reliable service (or any 3G service, for that matter) in your area/where you need the phone to work(?)

The carrier *does* matter. I'd pick a carrier first then handset so you get reliable service. If you came back with a choice between two carriers you know offer reliable service where you live it would be easier to assist you, quite frankly.

mom has at&t and dad has verison so i can get it for either carrier that's why i said it doesn't matter about carrier. I just care about the phone it self! if the phones not good then whats the point. this has nothing to do with carrier. Just need help with the blackberry pearl 3g.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
