    Hey guys,

    I just bought a Bold 9700 for around 80 bucks. Can't wait to get my hands on it, I'm currently using a Z10 as my daily driver.
    Anyone here who would still recommend using the bold as a main device? And do I still need the "BlackBerry Internet Service" in order to take full advantage of push notifications etc.? I'm thinking of mails, whatsapp, bbm...

    Regards,

    Phil

    Absolutely! Love my 9700 - everything can be done with one or two keypresses!

    HA! This is awesome. I just bought a 9700 and will get it tomorrow. It was around $70 and in brand new condition. I'm stoked! I also ordered a 9900 for next Tuesday, it's a white unlocked Rogers unit...couldn't resist.

    Excited to be back on a true BlackBerry. Didn't like the Z or Q...IMO.

    A 9700 has been my workhorse for years...just bought another one- brand new and sealed- for 60.
    My Q10 remains in the box at home doing nothing.
