    Guys, your help and advice is very much appreciated. Over lunch I popped into my local O2 and Orange dealers in Leicester and had a look/play with a 8700 (got to say looking more and more likely I'll get one!). How easy is it to set up pop3 email accounts using BIS. what info do I need to input?

    Orange will allow me to upgrade to a 8700 even though it is only available to small businesses currently.
    O2 would give me more minutes per month for a similar monthly fee.

    from your experience are o2 that much better than orange?

    You can never go wrong with a Blackberry. I have bought two in the past 2.5 months. I'll never go back to a "regular" phone again!!!

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~I am on O2 and I can recommend them.When you sort out your data package, you go to, in the case of O2, a site called www.O2email.co.uk and register your details incl device PIN and IMEI. You click the relevant links in there to have your browser and service books sent to you. On the device go to tools options and click on host routing tables to register. Wait 15 minutes for the BB to sweep for data and you should be live. Its that easy!

    FYI

    O2 also have new tariff for the BB data Plan. There are two new Unlimited Data Packages (Ł10 & Ł15) aswell as one Pay As You Go (Ł2.70 per mb)....

    Whilst you have to have a Voice Tariff to go with it, they work out similar

    But as in some above post sometimes Service is more important that cost, especially if you are talking Ł5 difference.

    I have tried most PDA phones, even the P990, and i dont recommend them over the BBs.

    Good Luck and let us know what you get...

    Shaun,

    Have had my 8700c for about 2 weeks (Cingular)...I have always used a Treo. I do miss the camera/video and playing my MP3's on long flights....but I do have to say that I have been very very impressed with my BB. This is my first one..and I don't know what I did without it...even though it has only been a few weeks! Take the plunge....I think you will be happy you did.

    SK

    New 8700c owner here. Awesome device, but I miss the camera and multimedia, so I may get a Pearl when it comes out.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~Simple answer: Yes, BBs are that good. I have seen almost no one be disappointed with them, and most people, whether coming from a similar device or a regular cell phone are very happy and impressed with their BB. Also, I am on T-Mobile, although in the US, and am very pleased with the service and the cost of services, which is by far the most reasonable of any carrier.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
    Also will depend on who you ask too Try posting this question over as www.treocentral.com and see what you get. Also in my case I started 1st with a 6700 BB non-color screen. No app not even Blackberry messenger and I got hooked. Havn't owned anything but Blackberry since. I'm on the 8700g and looking forwared to upgrading to the 8800 esp if there's a version without aa camera.

    If you do purchase BB. Welcome aboard!!!
