    If you are on AT & T and want to stay with bb the 9700 is the best bang for your buck, plain and simple.

    imo

    Being on AT&T, if you are OK waiting for a little (lot) while longer, the new Slider (with os6) is coming there first. So far, it will be a higher spec than the Bold 9700. But if you NEED to upgrade NOW (phone broken, not working, etc) than the 9700 would be your most powerful BB available to you. Head on down to the store, and see which is most comfortable to hold. And with the new Pearl 3g on the market in other countries, you may be able to hold off and get yourself a new Pearl if it comes to AT&T too. (Love the form factor of it, switched to Curve since it had more memory and was faster)

    I'm eligible for an upgrade also, but I'm holding out for the Torch, Slider, 9800, whatever you want to call it. I would suggest doing the same. If the form factor doesn't appeal to you, you can either go with the 9700 or possibly wait for the rumored 9700a, which is rumored to sport 512 MB RAM, a 5 MP camera and OS 6 with webkit browser.

    Thanks guys. I am not in a big rush the Pearls is still working great. Was just wanting to get a new phone. I thought the 9700 would be a great phone, but I might wait and see what comes out.
