    I am currently shopping for a new phone, the old motorola krzr is killing my hands texting and I was looking into blackberries. I do text quite often and I was wondering about any opinions as to a suitable BB model, I've been looking mostly at the Pearl series including the 8210 but with AT&T as my carrier I'm unsure as to when it will actually launch. My 2 year agreement ends in February but reception from other carriers is terrible in this area. Any advice is much appreciated as I'm new to Blackberries, also I do not want to commit to a data plan so how much use would the wifi capability from say and 8120 be? Thanks in advance

    I would recommend a Curve. It has a qwerty keyboard.

    I like the curve... But pocket space is limited but I may just have to make the extra room for it lol

    lol alright this is starting to look like a pearl vs curve thread to me. I don't use my cell for internet access and I do use it to text in class fairly often so the more discreet the better lol. So pros vs cons on each, I would appreciate info on texting speed (I know its highly dependent on the user but any info helps I am used to both a standard desktop keyboard and T9 texting on my current phone) features and little extras like that. Anything else anyone can think of is also welcome
