    The prices that I'm getting:

    9300 - 300 bucks (Blocked with the local company)

    9700 - 400 bucks (Unlocked AT&T)



    CrackberryKevin mentioned in a video that the processor of the 9300 was better than the 9700.

    I am looking for the snappiest one, I don't want the waiting clock that appears all the time!

    The moment I get my blackberry. The moment I install OS 6!

    I've watched videos and all but I can't decide. I like the 9700 keyboard the most. But is it worth the difference of 100 bucks?

    This is going to be my waiting device for the next gen of Blackberries. So if they are going to be new ones within 3 or 4 months I could save those 100bucks!

    I do use the camera sometimes.

    I have 450 bucks to spend on a device.

    What do you recommend me?

    I guess it's going to be the 9700 then.

    Your stuck with AT&T if you go with the Bold 9700. That's the only dis I can think of with the Bold. Bold 9700 has better camera, battery life, and display. Curve 3G is a bit more compact and lighter but has less available memory. The Curve 3G is snappy but limited for the above reasons. All depends what you plan to do with it.

    i have the 9330: cause it was free. The screen resolution is Bad and no flash for the camera. You will be happier with the 9700.

    Nono, it's not a contract, it is an AT&T device but it is unlocked and works perfect with the local 3G bands

    I've owned the 8520, and it wasn't that BAD for me, even though the camera was pretty crappy.

    Yesterday I played a bit with a friend's 9650 with OS 6 and with a 9300 with OS 5 and I couldn't detect any major differences though

    Well the 9780 is way out of budget for me (560 bucks, unlocked AT&T)

    And that is some crazy business idea but I think I can save those 100 bucks in two months or so.

    I think I only would save those 100 if somebody leaks that the next gen of blackberries is coming out on April or so. But from here to July. There are 6 months, plenty of time for me to save money :P

    I'd say go the 9700. The upgrades are far worth it. Since you're not on contract in about a year when all these new and rumored devices actually drop, then you can up your contract for a spiffy brand new one!

    Everything is decided then.

    9700 it is.

    You made the right choice for sure.

    Awesome phone!

    Recommend os6 .424 over the official .380 which sucks!

    Yes you made the right choice! The 9700 is the better device, the 9300 DOES have a bit more app memory, BUT everything else the 9700 is better. Most importanly the 9700 has a much better screen resolution.

    Definitely go with the 9700. The quality of the device is so much better. The 9300 is a great device but its definitely worth the extra money for the 9700.
