    Depends what you like better and what functions you need in a phone. For the quick on the go with light email and mostly voice go with the 8100. For power email and lots of data data then I'd say 8800! Both are great. I'm in the middle with the curve but have owned both for. Had 8100 day it came out and 8800 for about a day!

    Well in that case the 8100. Smaller lighter and has a camera. Try to get the updated model like an 8120 or 8130 depending on your carrier. Although the typical 8100's are going pretty cheap if not free with contract renewals!

    If I had a BB back when I was in high school (10 yrs ago) I would go with the Pearl. But the best thing to do is to see which one you prefer typing on (aka buying the Pearl then finding out you can't STAND SureType or MultiTap), which one feels lighter to you (I bought a 7730 a few years ago and REFUSED to talk on it as a phone because it was a waffle sized BB). If you can live without a camera, the 8800 is your best bet. Both have an MP3 player and memory storage. Hope this helps.

    If I was in your shoes, I would go with the Pearl. Kids your age are already lightning quick typing text messages using a cell phone keyboard anyway. So having a full keyboard is not a big advantage. Also, I would asume you would like to have a camera on your phone. My daughter is always criticizing my oversized electronics, so I assume the compactness of the Pearl over the 8800 might make a difference to you also. I'm making a lot of assumptions here. Sorry.

    I think the 8800 is great for my needs, and I don't need or want a camera phone. I especially like the GPS capabilities and the more professional look of the 8800. These are important things to an almost 40 year old accountant type . Take care.

    Yeah I am in highschool too and had a pearl before I moved onto the iphone. It does have everything you would need. The calendar is great for organizing projects and homework in school.

    I've got a pearl and will stuck with this range because it looks cool,has a camara, small enough to put into your pocket and carries the same internal power as the larger 88XX. Oh and I send and receive in excess of 50 emails a day and personally find the suretype very very fast!
