    so with my Verizon phone contract coming to a close, it was time to for me to upgrade. i decided to stick with VZW since i've never had a problem with their service. long story short, i re-upped with them for another couple of years and decided to go with their branded BB Pearl instead of sticking with another plain-Jane phone.

    honestly, after only owning it one whole day and a half, i've grown to like it a lot. the SureType, not so much. but it is pretty intuitive. i was actually considering moving over to AT&T since they have the Curve, but again, i've been so happy with VZW's voice service that i felt it wasn't worth the risk.

    i really can't wait to pimp this thing out some more. btw, is it ok to be a little intimidated by the device? this is my first device like it and it's a little daunting.

    i'm curious to see what RiM has in store for all of us in the future.

    Yes it can be intimidating at first. A lot of people when they see my BB they would have a look but they would say take it back quickly you and your fancy fone.

    OMG_of_War...I think you did the right thing...I just resigned and got my Pearl and I love it...I am not a SureType fan, so I use Multitap on mine; old habits die hard!

    I may switch to the Curve if Verizon ever gets one...For all of it's faults, Verizon is hands down the best carrier in my area (near Pittsburgh). We have AT&T at work and we have dropped calls ALL THE TIME; I have to laugh at their commercials. I just wish Verizon would get the newer models quicker, but, we usually end up with an improved version!

    Enjoy your new BB and welcome to the best forum.

    Welcome. I have been lurking around and just upgraded to my Pearl 8130 Thursday. I love this site - it helped me decide between the Pearl and Curve.

    You should go with your instinct on plans when in doubt. My work phone is Verizon and I have had no problems for 6 years.
    Happy bb'ing!

    Since you want to stay with verizon,why not opt for the 8830?,it has a full keyboard and can work outside of the US.
