Am expecting to be spending a fair amount of time in Pakistan for my job and am wondering if you guys have any tips on what BB I should be buying in the US before I set out.

I'm leaning towards starting with a less expensive 8700C since I'm a bit of a newbie on BBs, but am put off by the fact that it doesn't include wifi. Should I care much about that feature? (I'll mostly be in Islamabad.)

Thanks in advance for any tips or caveats.

I can be emailed directly here tempmsgs-bb@yahoo.com btw.
