    Availability of 8800

    Advertisement



    Does anyone have a better handle on when the 8800 will be available and the pricing that it may have?

    Also, Regarding Blackberry devices is there any one carrier that seems to do better with the Blackberry than the others?

    Thank You,

    Larry

    Larry-
    Good Evening Kind Sir. I heard that T-Mobile will roll out the 8800 in January. Also, T-Mobile Has the cheapest and greatest Blackberry Plan for $19.99. Everyone else is so expensive. Stay away from Verizon & Cingular. All those network upgrades they have made or making are costing all the coustomers BIG TIME.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~adding to the above post, I'd like to mention that I left Cingular and came to t mobile because of the customer service and of course the cheaper plans.$44 for the same thing I can get for 20 seems retarded. And I haven't noticed a difference in quality. If anthing, t mobile is better

    I second the T-Mobile deal. I was with CIngular and finally realized that even with paying the early termination fee, I would make back the savings in plan difference in about 6-7 months.

    TG-Mobile customer service is much better (not that Cingular was bad). I get more minutes for less money. I get the same data plan for less money. The quality of the signal is the same here (southern California). And T-Mobile has a roaming agreement with Cingular (just make sure you are on a national plan).

    Everything says T-Mobile is the way to go.

    Check the rates - TMo jumped all the plans to about $20 more a month (still great plans, though-lots more options than vzw, and a lot more flexible with equipment upgrades).
    I think a lot of getting the 8100 first has to do with T-Mo's recent upgrade with purchase from FCC on Bandwidth spectrum and their dropping the Treo from their product line. Also, T-Mo is a lot more of a consumer carrier, rather than corporate carrier (I know BBerry is hot about breaking into the consumer market)
    I'm sticking with them because: I got my Pearl (love it)! They're GSM rather than CDMA and they have always treated me right when it came to billing issues.

    Not in my experience. The CDMA carriers tend to get new devices later than the GSM carriers. I'm using Cingular because they have better coverage where I need it. YMMV but I'd recommended basing your decision based on coverage first. Cheaper plans are great except if you can't use them when you need them.

    Cingular's equivalent plan is $34 ($29 with a voice plan) IIRC. It's still higher than TMO but TMO's coverage doesn't work for eveyone. If you want to talk about "retarded", paying for nonexistent coverage is really "retarded".

    The $44 plan enable BES connectivity where as the cheaper plans fo not. Same for both Cingular and T-Mobile.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~I heard T-Mobile will get it first, but not for 4-6 months, although someone did post they heard as early as January. As far as pricing, I would guess with a new contract it will probably be $299 like the 7290 and 8700 when they first came out. No matter when it comes out or how much it costs(I'm not eligible for an upgrade for like ten years-lol) I am getting the 8800 as soon as it's out.

    Re: Availability of 8800

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~Just updating earlier posts o don't know where various posters are getting their infpo as far as release dates, such as January or February, if you look at posts in the 8800 sectipon of this page, BoyGenius has posted some leaked RIM documents that lists the release of the Crimson and Indigo(8800 models w/ and w/out camera respectively) as Spring 2007. I tend to believe RIM over random posters who heard from their cousin who has a friend who knows a guy who works for this place that does business with this company who bought a blackberry once etcetera etcetera. Maybe I'll be wrong about this but I doubt it. And furthermore, RIM will release it when its ready. I would rather wait a few extra months for a device that works better with no bugs and all the kinks worked out.
