    Looking at the prices on used blackberries on ebay/craigslist, $150 for a bold 9700 and $300 for bold 9780. Is it worth twice the price?

    Twice the memory.
    Better camera.
    OS6 out of the box.

    Question is, do you really need it NOW? If you wait for 3 more months, when a newer blackberry is released, that will bring the price to 200 or less depending on how long the owner had it.

    Better camera? Hardly can tell a difference.

    Os6 out the box is cool, but can easily load a good build of os6 onto 9700.

    Memory is fine, but I have as much as I had on os5...so no worries. That may or may not effect some, just depends...

    No on contract price, may be worth it. But would be comparing most likely a used bold 9700 to a new 9780.

    Now if money isn't an issue, then 9780 as it is more current and has a little better specs. But you wouldn't be on here asking this question then...

    Buy the 9780 now. If you decide to upgrade again later this year when the new BBs come out, the 9780 will still be worth twice what the 9700 will be.

    If you use your camera at all, you will see a difference between the 9780(5mp) and 9700(3.2mp)

    No. Not for twice the money it's not worth it.
