    I can get one from my rep for 200. He's bringing his in next week for me to play with, after that I'll decide whether to get one or not.

    You can just transfer your BIS account when you switch. It saves you the trouble of having VZW delete your old BIS account.

    Bes sure to perform a handheld wipe before getting rid of your 8703e.

    KdKng,
    I'm taking the plunge myself. This will be my first BlackBerry/Smartphone. I'm concerned about the GPS being disabled and the discussions about the slower processor speed then the 8800. It makes me wonder if it is worth sticking with Verizon?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ the processor speed is an unusual complaint since it's not even the same family of processor as the 8800. It's like comparing an AMD and an Intel processor. They both perform very differently.

    Same-- I made the switch from a Q to an 8830 and its just a world of difference -- the BB is a huge step up.

    Whoa! I love the 8830! It brings a whole new meaning to the term Crackberry! I was a little leary about the trackball. I only reached for the trackwheel a few times before I got used to it.

    You won't regret it!
