    Had quite a few and my favorite thus far has been the 9700. Everything just worked amazingly and had the best battery life of any phone I used....well smartphone anyway.

    I have used a 9900 a few times and is one heck of a device, but since I havent owned it, then I cant say for sure. So for me, 9700! My 8100 was a tank too!

    I am curious to know how many 99xx users actually had the 83xx series and used them.
    Sounds like a Poll I should make in the 9900 forum

    With out a doubt, the 8330 was the best Blackberry phone. Is anyone taking a poll?

    Best BlackBerry Ever: 9900/9930

    Best BlackBerry at the time: 88xx series (every carrier and everyone had one)

    Best to use this thread as a nomination thread first before creating a poll, since there are more than 10 phones, what would be ideal the top 5 from this thread to be voted on

    That makes sense, but this is one of those threads that can last for days

    Well when you think it has had enough nominations feel free to make a poll

    I think I'd wait for 100 posts for myself,

    I posted on yours deRusset, good idea, and thanks to the the OP, pm55 for the thought that started it.

    *EDIT* Thanks to Heavy Fluid as well. Now I'm jealous, I missed a phone I would have liked.

    No love for the 9000?! Not my first Berry, but the first Berry I absolutely fell in love with
    RIM made a solid move forward with the 9000, a great follow up with the 8900, but they did not keep the momentum I would have liked afterwards

    Oh, my vote is for the 9810, the larger screen beats out the awesome kb of the 9900 by only the thinnest of margins though (I hate to wear my glasses).

    At the time, the 83xx series was pretty great. By today's standard, it would fall very short.

    BUT, I would take a 83xx Body give it an optical trackball over the little rollers, and pack in 9900 specs into that body { and they would fit The 9900 is 115 x 66 x 10.5 mm (79695mm^3) the 83xx is 107 x 60 x 15.5 mm (99510mm^3)}

    and I would buy it, the 8330 had a fantastic keyboard for feedback, the trackball navigation was much nicer than the trackpad navigation is and the body was build like a brick!

    My vote has to go to the 9700. I think it had the best features (at the time). Great camera, the trackpad (I HATE the trackball) and great battery life.

    9850 9860 Torch. Sleek and modern BB that has the only chance of bringing the modern smart phone crowd to BB.
    Thats one sexy phone, the screen is beautiful.

    Best looking, best built, tough as nails phone has got to be the Curve 8330 in Titanium (Sprint). Oh, and it always works without so much as a hiccup.

    I started out on a 7290 but found the 8700 to be a real tank. I could throw that thing across the room and it would survive unscathed!

    Telus Offered a 7250, which was a TANK I'd seen one run over in a gravelpit by an F150 then get picked up and it worked!

    I'm sure on concrete it would have been destroyed but in the gravel pit it just got ground into the ground and came out working, I was amazed! this gravel pit owner said and I quote "These are the best phones, I have 3 backups I hope to retire before I go through them all"

    8330 for me as well. Loved that phone, keyboard was just right, size, thickness. That was before the Bold days I guess.

    What's the hot phone of today, like the 8330 was in 2007? I'd guess the 9900, the latest Curve doesn't have the same attraction the 8330 did in 2007.

    9850 is the bomb for me. Leapfrogs the prior models and the touchscreen is fast, responsive, bright, hirez, and now with mobile hotspot, extra useful.

    But...is the 9850 screen (no scratches so far) plastic or glass?

    I have to go with the 9900 but I did love my 9700 as well. The 83xx was a great series. A shout out to my old 8120 too. I used it for almost 2 years. A friend then used it for another year and now the middle boy has been using it for about 6 months...it does have an otterbox defender on it though.
