    Being the avid BB user that I am and have been since the 7290, the first thing I tried was an OS upgrade, with a handful of betas, you exchange one issue for the next. I have more stable devices to compare my usage to, that's why in the end I decided the Bold was a waste.

    Resolution is not an issue for as long as it is not black and white, and secondly, the 8320 does have WIFI, and GPS is not important to me, that what GPS devices are for.

    point exactly. I the resolution and wifi is not all that important.Certain spots have blocked their wifi so whats the point, and secondly, hue is not a big factor for me, as it is not black and white.T-mobile is still on edge, and my 8320 loads alot factor. and another thing that irritated me was the fact that it took such a long time for the entire screen to load, i had to wait and scroll. I hate not having a full view like the 8320 has. just not convienent for me. different strokes for different strokes but others shouldnt be judged because they choice an older model at the end of the day.they all do the same thing. extra memory? i only use e-mails and browse the web, i am not downloading document files that exceeds the memory capacity.

    Princess, really have a few questions, and would like to avoid the whole "boycotting" thread mess.

    What are you referring to when you say "full view"? As well I'm curious as to your page loading comments.

    I ask because so far I've seldom had to wait for more than a few seconds for a load. I'm wondering if you had issues with the device or with the devices OS.

    Keep in mind I'm asking out of curiosity.

    If you are going to take the time to respond... take the time to actually understand that to which you are responding.

    After decades of being a technology consumer and developer/provider, I expect a brand new smartphone to have a couple of glitches with the initial release. If that's not acceptable in a particular case, I wait, watch the forums and blogs, and get jump when it looks safe.

    In this case, I knew I might have memory issues or slight incompatibilities with a new Blackberry, but I also knew that new OS releases would be pretty frequent in early months following the initial release. I've been a cellphone user for about 17 years, and a blackberry user for about 5 years. My last device was an 8300 (unlocked - on T-Mobile), and my experience with the 8900 has been excellent -- this has to be one of the best mobile products I have seen to date. Compared the 8300, it is more solid (better fit/finish), more attractive, has a far better screen (spectacular is a reasonable adjective), is much more responsive (far faster CPU), has tons of memory, combines bluetooth, GPS and WiFi in one unit -- and UMA service is outstanding.

    Also - by following along with the OS upgrades as they become available, I've now got a device that is extremely fast and responsive, is extremely stable, doesn't display memory leaks, and has great battery life.

    I can't imagine going back to the 83xx after having had this...

    I have both too and I have "full view" on my 8900 of everything. No glitches, no load lags, no slower wi-fi issues. There is nothing I like about my 8320 better, not one. I guess my only gripe is that I wish I could afford another 8900 for my lady right now!

    My wife still likes her 8320 (Tmob) a lot. Great phone and for txting, camera is decent. That's what she does, very rare browsing and no music/video. Me I'm in love with the 8900 hires screen. I don't think I could go back. A lot of people didn't like the Bold because of the ATT/3g problems. The phone itself is pretty good if you like a brickberry.

    because on the 832 it offers you a full view, you don't have to scroll from L-R. I am sure whether it was the os, or just the device but it just didn't work out for me.

    Why do i need to upgrade to HD? because ever one has it? the browser works just fine. I am sorry if my the hue is much brighter but it works. as long as it is not black and white. maybe you should revise your thinking.

    I guess there is never any need to improve anything if we all revised our thinking to that! I danno...I kinda like improvements to things in all aspects of life. But like an old pair of trusty jeans...I do understand some things are hard to let go of still
