    This is the first time I will get a Blackberry phone and can't decide which one to get. My phone carrier is T-mobile and I prefer the Blackberry pearl but the only models they have are 8100 and 8120.

    Reasons of picking the models:
    8100: the lights can change on the tracker ball thing or whatever it's called.
    8120: it's a newer model with better features

    I'm just can't decide which one I want.

    What are the flaws for the models? Which one would you prefer and why?

    Tmo has a Curve right? Go with the Curve! It can do everything the 8120 can but has more memory and full Qwerty Keyboard! typing with the Suretype is pain for sure!

    I have vzw, started with a Pearl...2 days later traded in for a World Edition....7 months later I am rockin' a Curve....so much better than a Pearl!! IMHO

    I used the Pearl on AT&T and loved it. I also have a Curve and I think I like it better than the Pearl. Although I do like the smaller size of the Pearl at times. And I would select it over any other brand of phone.

    Check out the Flip (8220). I just sold my 8120 after I determined that the 8220 was a keeper. I wrote a 1-week review under the 8220 forum if you would like to look at it.

    I have the pearl 8130 and so far its been a pretty good phone. I like the size but I would prefer to have a full keyboard. Go into a tmobile store and test drive all the blackberries

    I'm sure the Pearl is a great phone, but I moved to the Curve 8330, and I LOVE it! The full keyboard is awesome! Just a thought - it would be nice if you could "try before you buy". You might want to take a look before you make your final decision. Either way, you can't go wrong with a Blackberry! Good luck!
