    Every carrier will allow you to upgrade whenever you want, but I think it's 11 months on a 1 yr contract or 22 months on a 2 year deal to get a new phone at the lowest possible discounted price allowed. This includes rebates and other discounts.

    Re: How often do you guys get a new phone?

    Also, I forgot to mention the fact that, although I want a new model SureType BB the first day they come out (I got lucky with my first 7100t and got it less than a week after it had been first introduced), I usually try to wait 6 months so all bugs are worked out. I think that's why I haven't had to return my 7105t yet (knock on wood LOL).

    Re: How often do you guys get a new phone?

    I seem to end up with a new phone about every ten or twelve months, last one was a moto v3x (400 bucks) that I modded myself. I'm new to BB and I freakin' love this 8100...no mo moto for me. I'm a BB BELIEVER !!!

    As to the 8100 there are a few vendors giving the 8100 for free with a two year contract.

    Re: How often do you guys get a new phone?

    yeah, me too. no self-control whatsoever when a cool new phone comes out. for me the Holy Grail would be a way for multiple devices to be tied to one phone number. I realize I could lash this up somehow with forwarding or whatever, but I would love to have one device that was larger and had everything the top-of-the-line PDAs and video iPods have (plus a phone), and then a separate tiny device that was a phone only for when I really want to travel light. The Pearl is the best combination of features and small size that I've seen yet, but it is still obviously bigger than a phone-only device would need to be and yet still too small to have the storage size, full keyboards, etc that you get with bigger devices. How about a device with a little cartridge (the phone) that could pop out of the larger device and work independently? I haven't seen a really really small well-engineered device that was ONLY trying to be a phone. Seems like it would be feasible to buld a phone that could attach entirely to your ear (like a bluetooth headset), especially if you were willing to forego a keypad and do all your calling with voice commands.

    Re: How often do you guys get a new phone?

    I always used to bum phones off the cariers for free or next to nothing by accepting a two year agreement. After dealing with sprint for 4 years(LOUSY RECEPTION) and dealing with nextel for 2...both of which i got top of the line phones for less than 70 bucks......I have learned my lesson. Pay a little bit more for the phone, get a two year contract and upgrade every year.

    Now.... if verizon comes out with a stable 8800 then i just might go ahead and pay full retail and sell the 8703 on ebay to offset some of the cost like everyone else has mentioned.

    Yeah I'm just switching from Sprint. I hate their reception. It droped so many calls especially around my house. My brother has Nextel and he hates his service also. Tonight I should get in my phone and it will be T-mobile.

    Re: How often do you guys get a new phone?

    I am so glad to see that I am not the only one that is BB obsessed! I have had mine for a month or so and my 7100g and I have a close bond! I am getting my best friend Nikki a BB for Christmas she seems to like mine a good bit so I figure I would get her one so she can become a BB fanatic as the whole pinstack family is! Bite the big one treo!

    Re: How often do you guys get a new phone?

    I usually get a new phone when something comes out that I really like or if the phone I have seems to be toooooo popular.... I got the razr when it first came out, then within a few months everyone and their brother had one so I switched to the samsung t809.... my daughter's friend just got one cause she liked mine, so I started looking for something new, and saw the BB8100 was coming out.... so I got it....

    Re: How often do you guys get a new phone?

    I buy the newest ones as well. I have to as I then view my current one as old and obsolete.....my relationship with my phone is "I'll love ya until something better comes out then drop ya quicker than a hot potatoe". Basically..love'em n' leave'em.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
    Same here N8. And if the 8800 does really have wifi, it might be the time I start carrying 2 BB's!

    Re: How often do you guys get a new phone?

    Screw WiFi...Won't do me any good here in Nashville. Not like New York or Chicago where there is WiFi all over the place.

    Here, you're LUCKY to get a WiFi connection, and if you do, 90% of the time it's locked anyways.

    The carriers need to get off of their rears and jump on the Verizon bandwagon. Maybe finally start to get their mobile data networks on 3G?

    WiFi does me absolutely no good what so ever, and I personally think its a waste of time and money for RIM to research, develop and incorporate WiFi into their devices.

    This is all on the carriers to get us the mobile broadband experience, not RIM. Tmobile, Cingular, etc, listen up and have YOUR R&D departments start doing something.

    Just my opinion.
