    Help convince me it's worth buying an unlocked Bold!

    Advertisement



    Well my pearl is basically damaged and its 80 bucks to get it back to where I want it. Not too bad, but I am going to buy the Bold when it comes out with ATT. I basically can get a Bold delivered to me Friday for 725 from a reputable source. I really want to buy it, because I am tired of waiting for ATT. Anyone wanna help convince me that its worth the 400 dollar premium to pick one up now versus waiting probably 1 month for it to come out on ATT?

    If you haven't read enough on all the forums about the Bold already.... there is nothing we can say in one post to improve it.

    I wanted it. I have the money. I bought it. I'm happy.

    What makes you happy only you can decide.

    There are all kinds of folks who will never think a Bold is worth $400 extra. I've had it a month and am not looking back. Who knows when AT&T will really cut it loose.

    Your money... you make the decision.

    At first I thought I could keep my Curve and be happy, but after using the keyboard on the Bold and the amazing screen, I am sorry, I can't go back to the Curve for a while. =D

    Browser is better, so thats a plus!

    3G, can't never complaint with faster speed!

    I shelled out full pop for it too.

    If you are looking for negatives about the Bold, I have a few

    The top row of buttons, (Talk, Menu, ESC, End) picks up oil from your fingers really easily. You have to constantly wipe it down. Same with the screen protector.

    The Browser is really good compared to previous generations, but there is still lots of pages it cannot render.

    Then of course, there is still the problems that plague all BlackBerries. Battery Life and Memory Leaks

    But I would not trade it for any other phone.

    All the cool kids do it. Besides, if you don't have a Bold, you are thrice as likely to get an STD. Its science.

    North Vancouver should be okay, I was recently in the lower mainland and I had no problems with 3G
