    I had an 8830 before my 9630. The 8830 is a rock-solid, dependable, durable, reliable phone, especially if you don't upgrade the OS from 4.2. On the con side, it only has 64MB of memory, compared to 96MB in the 8330, it doesn't have a camera, and it will never be upgraded to OS 5.0 because it doesn't have enough memory.

    Do yourself a favor and pass on the 8830.

    I bought one after a terrible experience with storm 1. After hearing about Tour 2(essex) coming, I wanted a BB, but wanted to wait and see when VZN would have Essex. I found a 8830 on Ebay, and except for some trouble with trackball its been a good deal for 60 bucks.
