    Here me out and tell me your thoughts. I've been using a Bold 9700 for almost 3 years and its obviously an oooold device. I don't use many apps. I only spend money if something is really worth it (until I finish uni). The Z10 is $550 here.

    My 9700 does BBM perfectly, BBM Voice perfectly, email perfectly, calendar, contacts, etc perfectly (these are the strengths of BB after all). I use the left convenience key to get into the messages hub instantaneously. This might actually be faster than the gestures in BB10. It does Google Maps transit directions pretty good (slow GPS though), Twitter well, Facebook messenger fine, Facebook just usable. What it does poorly is web browsing but with Opera Mini I am able to just get by for reading news.

    I also have a Nexus 7 and just use it for YouTube, movies, TV shows and PDFs. For a cell phone the 9700 really is getting me through just fine. Its not a very pleasant experience but its not horrendous either. I'm broken between doling out $550 for a new phone especially since I have a Nexus 7 already and am in a Wifi zone almost all the time. What do you think?

    Why fix something that isn't broken? If you're happy, just stick with your current setup and save some money. You don't owe these companies anything.

    [edit] I come off sounding harsher than intended. I just know money is tight for students. You could always try the device out, and return it if it doesn't suit your needs. Just make sure you don't use too many minutes or data. See your local carrier for full details.

    You could sell your 9700 and Nexus 7 and use it towards a new BB10, as the phone would serve all your needs. Just my opinion.
