    I have a Bold 9650. Having just picked up a Playbook, would a see a benefit moving to a Bold 9930 for Bridge etc..? If there is a benefit, would it be worth the upgrade? Thanks!

    I'm kicking that idea around. Verizon had lowered the price by $30 and now it is back up.

    9650 has bridge already does it not? (It does)

    But the difference is pretty big.
    The end question is if the power is big enough for the investment to be worth it for you.

    9650 runs on OS6 ... 9930 runs on OS7.. big difference... OS7's run a lot smoother with the PB.

    Just my .02 cents

    I noticed today when I had my playbook bridged to my 9650 it was very slow when doing things like deleting email. Will an OS 7 phone make this faster?

    Also, if I do decide to upgrade my phone, it will be without "contract" discounts. Any suggestions on a good place to pick-up a Sprint compatible 9930?

    So you're going to be paying full retail?
    I would buy online, but make sure the ESN is clean and whatnot.
    If you choose Craigslist, it's best to meet at a Sprint store and have the device activated there with the seller.

    Q1: Yes
    Q2: At the time I got my 9810 my ATT plan was not in a position to allow an upgrade, so I just outright bought it on ebay NIB not even opened. I still have the same plan with the carrier, and will not upgrade through them.

    You could look at ebay for Sealed NIB to get a general idea of prices, or Amazon for comparisons. I always check against the two for a ball park figure, and go from there in my window shopping mode.

    I upgraded from the 9650 to the 9930 myself. That upgrade is well worth it, in and of itself. Your bridging experience might see a slight improvement as well, but I wouldn't say that upgrading for that experience alone is justified.
