    Try a 7290. It's a step up and will let your download OS 4.1. The price on them has gone down to around a $100-$150. Check eBay or your local area on craigslist.org.

    bbballer, neither will be all that you want. If you require Polyphonic ringtones then your only choice are the new 64 meg devices. The 7290 and 7100 series phones will only use midi ringtones. Other than that, the diferences between the two are format and keyboard layout. The choice between the two is personal preference and is basically up to you. The 7290 is the same layout as your 7280 and the 7100 is Portrait layout and sure type keyboard.

    hope this helps

    Yes, Backup the old device, then restore that backup to the new one. Should have all your contacts in your address book on the new BB. Hope you enjoy the 7100.
