    On ATT your best bet is the 9700, on Verizon your best bet is the 9550 Storm2 or to wait for the 9650 Bold2.

    She says she is using AT&T? What does that have to do with Big Red?

    9700 is for sure a nice phone, love mine and I did a lot of research before I purchased it as it was that or the mytouch3g, cliq, Samsung Behold2 and ended up with the Bold as I just couldn't get into the touchscreens.

    I even used a Driod from time to time as my SIL has one and she loves it, however it lagged really bad and her internet was slow as well, with full bars. Even my wifes Internet on her mytouch3g isn't all that fast. I am browsing just as fast with Opera5 installed....

    They really are nice phones for sure, the 9700. Can't go wrong.

    Good luck on whatever you decide.

    As far as the keyboard goes, it is a little small compared to other BB's, minus the Pearl, however compared to touchscreens even in landscape mode, it is easier to type on a 9700 compared to any other touchscreen I have used. I don't even look half the time and I have big hands...
    That's weird the Droid's internet was laggy that's one of its best traits, fast internet. Hmmm must have been a bad one.

    It's kind of hard to use a Droid on AT&T. Maybe the OP doesn't know what she is using if she's truly on AT&T...

    Amen to that! I hate getting on the internet with my droid!!!!
    If you hate the Internet on an Android webkit browser, be prepared to be really disappinted by the Blackberry experience... won't matter which model you pick.

    Funny you mentioned that as she is on her 2nd one and she said they both perform the same on the internet.

    She took it in the first time due to the slider part breaking, lol!

    IMO they are overrated, but each phone has problems with it, just IMO I am not impressed with it at all.

    Yeah, dawned on me after I wrote that as I was confused as she had AT&T/Cingular next to her name and then I was like, wait she is using a Droid....

    So wrong on the Internet though. OP, you will need to DL Opera5 and can do so OTA on your 9700 or Bolt 2.0 and if you are in an area that gets good connection, then you will have a good web browsing experience. I ultimatley like Bolt 2.0 as it is more stable as Opera5 can be buggy at times, however the speed is crazy! Takes me tops 10 seconds to load a full HTML page, which is pretty fast for a cell...My wifes takes just as long on her mytocuch if not longer, same with the Cliq and Driod. ****, I have had my wife ask me to look stuff up as her phone was taking too long......case in point!

    If I had the cash, I would get the 9700...as everyone else says, it really is the best BB out there.

    I have just become a BB user and grabbed the 8520 and I hae to say its actually nice to have a proper keyboard and not poking at a touchscreen!

    Think I am now a converted BB user and will be sticking with them for years to come, which for me makes a change!

    I have only had the phone a couple of weeks and am impressed by it - after 2 weeks of a HTC Diamond I wanted to throw it out the window!

    Hello all you BB "users"! Thinking of defecting to a BB...any recomendations and suggestions?
    That's not called defecting. Defecting is anybody buying an iPhone

    Waiting for my upgrade date and then I will be getting a 9700

    That's because she's most likely running the 2.0.1 OTA update. That update is notorious for having the browser lag. The new 2.1 update fixed that issue and even included multi-touch in the browser. No lag at all here!
    I doubt that as she is not very tech savvy and probably didn't even know about that update old or new. I will see about doing it for her though and see how it reacts as she hates browsing currently.

    I wish I could feel the sameway about my 9630 I can't wait until the new one comes out, and then all the bugs get cleared out after the initial months, then I'll be able to upgrade

    Driod is fun to use as a toy. But was not easy for me either. Nothing seem to be done as it should. You might wait for the essex or slider that should be coming soon to verizon. I have been waiting for a month or two. Hoping this month. my curve is getting to slow b/w apps
