    Cingular is offering the 8700c for about 50 after rebates and so on. I am new to BB and was wondering if that is a good introduction to the company or should I hold out and get the 8300. I know I want a full qwerty keyboard. I was just wondering what y'all thought. Your input will be appreciated

    Also, are there any known problems with this series

    And if anyone is on cingular how does the data plan work? Their website is a little more useful than a talking yak who speaks dutch.

    The 8700 is a brilliant BlackBerry, and for that price you really can't go wrong.

    If I was not such a CrackBerry addict, I'd still be using my 8700 (I still have it as a backup to my 8800). No issues with it, and even better still if you have the latest O.S.
    I don't believe Cingular has the 'latest' O.S, so I'd recommend installing it if you bought the device. I think Telus or Rogers have the latest 4.2.something.

    Am sure the 8300 will be a good device too. But, I suppose it's all to do with partly how much you want to spend, upfront.

    I'm going insane waiting for a relase date and how much the 8300 (curve) is going to be. Any thoughts? Just a ball park figure?

    I bet it will be around $349 - $400 for new customers, and $499 for existing customers...

    The 8700 is really a dream - you can't go wrong. If you have to have the latest and greatest and have the cash available then people are buying the new devices. However, for that price the 8700 is quite a deal!

    I'm actually having trouble leaving the 8700 for the Curve - will check it out though
