Getting my first Blackberry, but which one should I get?
Basically my HTC Wildfire S is on its last legs, and I want to try something new. I am in Denmark, and it is impossible to find a carrier with BIS, so that doesent matter. I will just use it for calling, WiFi, texting, calender and such. Needs to be 3G compatible and run on danish net with sim card etc.
I have limited money, but have two used options. Both are in good condition, but without receipts and have been used with Danish simcards.
1: Blackberry Bold 9650 - comes with usb cable. No charger, but can supposedly be charged through the USB cable.
2: Blackberry Bold 9000 - comes with box and everything.
Which one would be the better purchase for my use? I plan on using this phone for the next 6-8 months, and just need stable well working phone.

Hello There Axl H,
In my opinion Bold 9650 is a grate device better then 9000, and you dont have to worry about charger you can buy a charger from your local electronic store.
But if you have just a bit more money to spend it would be better if you buy a Bold 9780 is one of the best devices before Os7 came out. i had one and i trade it for my torch 9810 i didn't get to much $ from it but enough to put twords my new BB Torch 9810 Os7.1
Hope you will find your match Bold and enjoy your BB as much is i enjoy them.

Like the person above me said, pick a 9650. Using one right now for the fast 6 month, nothing wrong with it and some how I get BIS working on my local carrier where CDMA/GSM BB's are not supported. Spen some more money and go with the 9780 if you don't like the 9650 bulk.

Here's a quick way to compare. You will note that the 9000 is from 2008, and the 9650 is from 2010.
BlackBerry Bold 9650 vs. BlackBerry Bold 9000 - GSMArena.com
In my opinion, since the 9650 runs OS 6, it is the better choice based just on that.
You may want to also check out Ebay for a phone before you buy anything. I got my Bold 9900 for about $290 Canadian dollars. You might be able to find a newer device that runs OS7 like the 9900, or 9810 which are both very fine phones.

well 8900 has a 3.2mp camera and more internal Ram
which helps with freezing. its a 2G only phone.
the 9000 has a 2.0mp camera less internal ram, but is
3G capable depending on who your carrier is.
I would go for your first choice the 9650 way better than
both these phones.
