I need some serious help!

by krissimouse / October 9, 2007 6:38 AM PDT

Alright now I have been lusting after the Blackberry Pearl 8130 like no other. Then I saw the Palm Centro and I don't know if I should lust after that instead due to budget constraints. Which of the two look more appealing even with all of the features combined? Because I plan on buying one unlocked so that I can take it to my own CDMA carrier. But I just don't know which one would be best for me! HELP!

Krissi, use the force

only you know what features you really want. You also know what design you want. Maybe take a trip to the mall and look at them in person. My wife was at the ATT store, the other day and the deals were better there that at ATT's website, maybe you'll get lucky.

I thought CDMA phone carriers could use unlocked phones as well??? If I knew that then I would be just totally dismayed. I know I need to see these phones in person but, I really don't know. I need some opinions on the companies and what not. Got any of those?
