    that's quite a price difference there. if that were the case I'd just get an 8525 and be done with it all

    I'm looking at getting the blackjack for $150, it'd be next to impossible finding a curve near that price.

    To be honest the only reason I am saying this is because I will spend any amount of money on a BB due to the fact it has been the best phone I have ever owned. Im not sure about a BlackJack, but I have never seen another phone that the manufacturer allowed you to load your own software to the phone, fixing almost any problem I have ever seen. I work for a service center and we dont do exchanges on BlackBerry phones because reloading the OS has fixed the problem everytime. The lifeline of a BlackBerry is as long as you want it to be!

    I thought windows mobile was a good thing. don't get me wrong, I like my blackberry and everything it offers, but I would like to get a 3g phone. It almost seems like my mind is set, but I'm mixed. I'm hearing horror stories of battery life on the blackjack. mine on the blackberry is already kinda shitty. I can't imagine it being worse than this

    Always go with your first instincts, if the BJ turns out to be a nightmare for you, than you learned your lesson and will probably end up with a BB...you'll never know till you try it.

    This happened to me on 3 different sidekicks as they don't support full featured sites like the BB browser and opera mini. I came running back to the BB every time.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~i might go see if I can try it before I buy it, then male a conclusion. Seems a little for the bb here, but then again it is a bb forum

    Ha, wonder why?
    I work with some BlackJacks at work. Not as shaky as older wm phones, but it'll chew up a battery pretty quick.

    I am biased but BB for reliability. 3g sucks battery life. My pearl needs charging too much compared to my 8700.
