    No worries. A BlackBerry is a big investment and shouldn't be taken lightly. If more people were like you there wouldn't be as many returns.

    On the topic of BlackBerrys on EDGE, I've done my own comparison against other phones I own running on EDGE. RIM has been quite successful in optimizing the BlackBerry to run fast on EDGE, it's much faster than any other phone I have.

    Now with my Bold updated to .210 it's speed has increased so that it's in the upper range & comparable to my fastest 3G phones. When I do a side by side comparison between my 8310 vs my 9000 loading various web pages, I find the Curve closer to the Bold than I would have imagined prior to doing this comparison. Then when we factor in what KaraBear said about the 8900 being even faster than the 8310, this new Curve promises to be one very fast & exciting BlackBerry.

    I just try both Bold and 8900. Finally, i keep 8900 and say goodbye to Bold.

    I like 8900 design. It's manly and sweet. It's suitable for me. Bold is too big.

    I like both devices i like the leather back on the bold and that the keys are much nicer. It was harder coming from the bold to the javelin with the key board raised up. Keyboards alot like the 8310. I do love the camera on the javelin is very clear but i still dont like how it has the mini usb as all my cables are micro usb.

    I agree. I test my pearl against an Iphone 3g, I was a second behind and I was running OS 4.2.

    3g has its perks But it is not all that and a bag of chips.

    But it is outstanding when it come to the wireless broadband cards. It is almost as fast at DSL.

    The only thing I suffer from the lack of 3G on my 8900 is my boyfriend rubbing his stupid iphone in my face. But it doesn't matter, I'd choose any Blackberry over the iphone ANY day

    I have a BOLD on 3G and my wife has the 8900 on EDGE. I use both and I don't notice any big difference in speed. I do not receive alot of emails while talking on the phone (guess I am not that popular) so that is not a big deal for me. I like the camera on the 8900 but I much prefer the feel on the BOLD in my hands. If I had to stick to just one it would be the BOLD hands down, I just find the 8900 a little small for my likings. I too find the mini USB to be a real pain since all our chargers are micro.
