    I picked the Bold 9000 simply because it was the first in a great line of phones, with still more to come.

    I'm going to have to go with the Curve 83XX series. Was a great solid device in its prime, and can still be used if you don't need the latest, and greatest. Also sold fairly well on every carrier it was offered on.

    Curve 83XX....

    Though, I think 9700 will take its place...
    I disagree

    MANY 8330 users will never see the 9700, they will go from 8330 to what ever RIM releases in 2 years. the 9700 can not touch the durability of the 8330, my 8330 is much older than my 9630 I carry both around daily both get beaten up, but my 8330 is still in better physical condition, that was the last SOLID BB that RIM build, not quite as good as 7XXX phones but pretty damn good.

    the 9300 does not look like it has the build quality nor the longevity of the 8300 series, which is Sad, RIM needs that workhorse out there still, they need that "fleetphone" that will just work, and just last, so people will WANT to upgrade to the fancy phone with all the chrome.

    my Company runs 8830's 8330's and 9630's the 9630's were the upgrades for the 8830 guys, the 8330 guys will continue to be upgraded with 8330's for at least 1 more year if they have failures because of how solid the device is.

    I voted 83xx series. Really the backbone of RIMs lineup for a couple of years and a sturdy, dependabled device. That being said, the 9700, while still fairly new, is by far the best device by RIM to date.

    I would say the original curve, widely popular accross all carrriers. Inexpensive and solid with few issues. It was my favorite so far. Sometimes i wish i hadnt upgraded.

    I'm really surprised that the Curve 8900 is not on the list, it was one of the best devices on the planet in its heyday. 3g is a potato/potAtoe thing for me, never had a need.
    I still want one of these devices almost more than a 9700! just because it represents a moment in time for RIM..

    8900 although it lacks 3G, it had the perfect form factor and the high res screen and 256MB of mem (basically a 9700 with trackball, slightly slower cpu and without 3G).

    i agree with some of you guys:
    the 9000 was a GAME CHANGER for RIM
    however if we're looking at numbers, it would be the 8300, just because everyone had it, because companies would buy it in bulk

    I would have to say Bold 9000. Obviously it lacks stats/functionallity of todays Berries, but back in time it was a game changer.

    This question is a no-brainer. The 8330 hands-down! Solid device, top in sales, takes a licking and keeps on ticking. If it had more memory or could have added more memory, I would have never upgraded my phone.

    Workhorse extraordinaire!
