    If the camera's something you want. I think it's still up in the air whether or not the 8820 will have WiFi or even if Cingular will offer it.

    I think I'll give it exactly one month from today to see what the buzz is on future releases. Let's hope I can last that long. Let's see,...today's the 16th. So let's just say I'm going to by my new BB on St. Patrick's day. Woo Hoo!!!!! counting the days!!!!!!!!!

    This is sort of seedy, but it works everytime!
    1. Always buy equipment protection program ($5 per month)
    2. Before upgrading, zap old BB in microwave for 1 sec at a time until it will no longer power on.
    3. Use equip protection program to get new or refurb BB from carrier
    4. Sell new or refurb BB for up to 95% of cost!

    Ahhh...to be young and single again.
    Wrong, my secret is to be Old and Single. All but one of the Kids out of college, Ex is doing well, and I'm working only for myself now. Not quite ready to retire, so I can afford a little for a new phone when one I just can't resist comes out. But I think I can resist the 8800 and wait for a UTMS Blackberry.

    I can't agree with everyone else. When it comes to a new BERRY, there are couple of choices. Screw the car note, screw some of the rent or go with my favorite "swipe now, worry later".LOL you have to do whatever it takes to get the new one.

    Re: I know this is personal, but...........

    Well I can say the budget thing works for me. I have money that I set to the side evry pay check to play with. Whatever is usually left over I put it into my savings account. This way whenever I wanna go get a new bb I can. But just for reference I won't be anytime soon, I love my pearl!!!suretype the newest addiction next 2 my crackberry

    ~via BB 8100 Pearl
    (wap.pinstack.com)~ I am not rolling in cash either. I get disability benefits. I usually wait until a device has been replaced 2 but no more than 3 times before I upgrade. That way I can get it for far less than initial face value.

    By the way, I got my Pearl for $15 because I had used 2 devices in 1 year. I also heard on the news that although devices can be wiped there may still be sensitive info on it. Therefore I have never sold a device.

    Buy em with money that's set aside, never on credit. As Dave Ramsey says "IM DEBT FREE!"

    Re: I know this is personal, but...........

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~I am just totally LOADED!!! Anyone want some free $$$? Just kidding! I'm willing to splurge on the 8800. I don't get a new phone every time a new BB comes out, I wait for the one I want. I have a 7290 now and avoided upgrading to the 8700 when it came out because it didn't offer so much more than my 7290 and I knew the 8800 was in the works with all the features I wanted so I've been waiting ever so patiently. I'm definitely not eligible for an upgrade through TMO for like 12 years so I'm paying full retail. It sucks but its worth it.
