    What would you do?

    Okay as of now I have nextel and I recently got the BB 7100i from a friend, but I am reluctant to add the BB service to my account in fear of extending my contract that ends in Feb. I love the BB and I really want the Pearl.

    So I am thinking about just running my nextel contract out and then switching to T-Mobil or Cingular, unless there was a way to get the pearl with Verizon. I have an account with them also. But I really want the pearl.. What would you do?

    I switched to T-mo from Nextel for the Pearl and 8700 devices, so its obvious what I would do

    Plus I dont think Nextel will be coming out with many more BB's if any at all, just my opinion.

    As for the Pearl on Verizon I have no idea but so far it has only been released on GSM carriers I believe.

    I think I would go with tmo .I am on cingular in a small town with no other option . The cingular service Is good but the price is higher than tmo .cingular charges 65$ just to use your bb as a modem on a laptop.from what I gather tmo does not charge extra for that.

    Putting the $39.99 5MB and $49.99 Unlimited Data Plan on your BB does not extend your contract. Only if you get the $39.99 plan will it extend your contract for 2 years.

    Cheaper is not always better... My rule of thumb is, you get what you pay for.

    i would go with sprint my experiance with t-mobile is they have the worst plans except data but minute wise no brainer plus i just could not get used to the pearl i love the way it looks but that ball is the worst not to mention the speed of evdo. solution 7130e
