    soon to purchase

    Advertisement



    I am looking for a smartphone that I can use when traveling overseas. What I found to be the best fit is the 8700g with T. Mobil. I know this site is for the Blackberry users. I would appreciate any input on what I should buy blackberry or not, what software I would need.

    The main purpose would be for email. Excuse my ignorance, if this question seems to be in left field.

    I thank you in advance for any input.


    Eric

    Ok I honestly have had numerous phones... I don't know how I ever lived without a BlackBerry... The "windows" operated phones freeze up alot and have tons of glitches... I totally recommend the Blackberry, its all I will ever use again!

    If you're going with T Mobile, you might want to look into a Sidekick as well. It has most of the same functions as well as a camera.

    Hi Ericbl. If all you are looking for is email then a BlackBerry is what you should buy. It offers instant push email in most cases and it doesnt stop there. I would bet anything you can think of can either be done on a BlackBerry, or will be able to be done soon. With BlackBerry you cant go wrong!

    Welcome to Pinstack, Eric, Yes, a blackberry and the 8700 will be a great choice for what you want. I am not sure about TMOs international Roaming and International Data Roaming charges, but with Cingular, it really pays to activate those two options before going overseas, and you can de-activate them on your return. As to software, out of the box, the BB will work for what you describe as your requirements, but I suggest you peruse the Handheld Software and 3rd Party Software Forums for additional time savers in the way of S/W

    Hope this Helps

    Welcome to the Stacks Eric. No such thing as a question in left field. Or right field for that matter. You can't go wrong with the 8700g with TMO, just what I have.
