    Will the 3g blackberries have longer or shorter battery life with 3g? also, can you get email, texts, and IM while on a call with 3g versus non 3g?

    3G is a known power hog. For sure BlackBerrys using 3G will have shorter battery life than the same model that stays on 2G.

    I can't answer your last piont because I have never read the specs for 3G. I thibk that it should be able to both at the same time since the voice portion of the total bandwidth is quite small.

    SOmeone who is actually ising a BlackBerry on 3G will surely come along and gice a full answer.

    Voice and Data only on GSM 3G, not CDMA.

    I have a Motorola Q9h which is 3G and once you experience voice/data at the same time, you wont ever go back to a 2G device.. I actually stopped using my Blackberry Curve because of the lack of 3G
