    At the moment I have a Trio 700 with the Palm OS. I am thinking of changing over to a blackberry due to the cheaper data plan offered from Verizon. How much different is a blackberry, from a Palm or smart-phone type phone?

    any new phone will take some time to get used to. Especially changing OS types, but you won't regret the move.

    A BB will not store a lot of programs. I am a new BB user, love it, but was disappointed that I still need to carry my Palm while at work. (lots of medical programs). The programs cannot be run from a medic card like the Palm. Hope this helps.

    If you text alot, you'll notice that the BB does not have threaded texting. It does everything else better! Push email for one example.

    The berry does not have a touch screen. That might be an obvious one, but I didn't realize until I had my curve and pushed on the screen and nothing happened... As a palm and then treo user I didn't know there were smartphones that didn't have touchscreens!

    it takes some getting used to but i think most the people here are ex-treo users or ex-iphone users
    my berry works great every single time i pull it out of the holster
    and ive noticed that people here are divided about touchscreen, half love touchscreens and half hate them.
    i personally dont care for it, but im sure that one of the new phones coming out with have it
    hope this helps!
