    I am able to upgrade my phone from tomorrow, but I can't decide if to upgrade or not, so help me out guys! Currently I have a Blackberry Curve 8900, which I really like.

    This is what I will choose from;
    1. Upgrade to a BlackBerry Bold 9700 (there doesn't seem to be a significant difference between the 8900 & 9700);
    2. Keep my current phone and wait for a new model BlackBerry to come out within the next few months (are there any to rival a Curve / Bold?).

    I have heard about the new OS software which seems promising, so perhaps that will be released around the time of new phones, so I don't want to upgrade a phone if it is not compatible with new software.

    What would you do? Thanks for your help with my complete indecision!

    I'm extremely happy with my upgrade from the 8900 to the 9700. That being said, how long does your contract get extended for? 1 year, I say go for the 9700. 2 years, I definitely say wait it out.

    Should I upgrade, the contract would be for an additional 18 months, but I can upgrade after 12 months.

    The Bold 9700 is pretty much top of the line and will support OS 6 from all reports I hear. That's the only reason I would upgrade. But you could wait for like the slider.

    I'd go with the 9700. I regret not getting it when I switched to ATT.

    When you upgrade even down the road, you will get what you think is the latest and greatest phone out and it may be....for a short while as something else will come out that tops it...keep that in mind.

    Pretty much why I just dove head first into the 9700 and haven't regretted it one bit. Love this phone.
