    Hello,

    There might be a better thread for this post but I am new and not sure where it would belong.

    I would like to be able to have MSN, Skype, etc running in the background. I receive a lot of emails a day. I would also like to be able to access the internet quickly. I would also like to be able to take half decent photos when needed for memories, etc.

    T-Mobile BlackBerry Curve 8520 (1GB fair usage policy) 20 for 6 months internet access
    Orange BlackBerry Curve 8520 (50MB fair usage policy) 5 per month for internet access
    Orange BlackBerry Bold 9700 (50MB fair usage policy) 5 per month for internet access
    Orange BlackBerry Curve 8900 (50MB fair usage policy) 5 per month for internet access

    Thanks in advanced.

    You answered your own question: Bold 9700.

    Insane battery life = run whatever you want in the background with minimal effects on daily usage, battery still kicking good. Access Internet quickly = Bold 9700 has 3G connectivity should you utilize that for quick access to Internet, half decent photos = it has a 3.2 Megapixel camera with flash.

    What about the monthly usage? Would I go over that? Also is the Bold worth 110 more do you think?

    +1 on the 9700. I do not count myself a heavy user (lots of e-mail, light on Twitter and FaceBook, generous surfing) and my monthly usage runs about 70Mb. To me a 50Mb limit seems small but I may be wrong.

    The 9700 is worthy at any price one finds affordable IMHO.

    Yeah it's defiantly 50MB which kinda sucks.

    You'd have to be extremely carefull about what you do data-wise, but they are right: If you can get a 9700 for ONLY 110, go for it. You can always change the limit on your 'plan' later on right?

    110 more, 350 + topup altogether. You can't change the limit.
