    So I'm looking at trading my iPhone 3gs for a Blackberry and have two offers, just unsure which one to pick.

    The first one is my iPhone for a Bold 9700. The second is my iPhone for a Bold 9000 and an iPod classic 80gb(would be nice for the car).

    I have previously owned a bold, and loved the larger form factor, but I like the idea of a trackpad over the ball. Also, does the extra memory of the 9700 make much of a difference? The only problem I had with my Bold 9000 was having to do the battery pulls.

    The 9000 would have been damn near perfect if it had more memory. Go with 9700. Add a sd card and put your music on there. You will never miss the ipod.

    Do you have a lot of DRM protected iTunes songs? If you do, you'd want the iPod, since it will be time consuming to burn them all to CD and then rip them back into iTunes just to put them on the BlackBerry.

    the 9700 is worth about $150 more than the 9000 at this point. Both are great, Ive had both.

    Depend on if u have big hand or not. But if u r able to type fine with the 9700. Then definately the 9700 for the following reasons:

    1. Trackpad
    2. Double the ram.
    3. Longer battery life.
    4. Latest and greatest envy by ppl on the street.

    Do people REALLY envy you if you have a 9700? If so I'm REALLY getting one!

    Get the 9700. The trackpad is amazing. I like the size of the 9000 a little better, but that can't compare to the trackpad.

    That is the least reason u should get the 9700. That's y I listed #4 :-). And yes, sometimes I do get envy look on the streets and bars when I pull out my 9700.

    LOL I know. Was just curious if people actually did get envious. I do still plan on getting the 9700 regardless.

    I'd take the iPod...lol! I already have two 160 Gig Classics and an 80 Gig. Would LOVE to have another one!

    Actually, what we really want is a 320 Gig iPod or larger, but apparently Apple thinks nobody wants huge storage anymore since you can't even get a 160 now.

    As for the phone, the 9700 is pretty sweet, but depending on how you use it, you might be mighty happy with a 9000 + the iPod.

    9700 will be your best bet since its newer and will hold value for time to come.
