    I am new to this forum. I am considering buying a smartphone. It is a toss up between the BB8830 and the Q from US Cellular. My question isn't the devices themselves, but the service. Why would I want the Blackberry solution for $40 monthly versus the WM Solution for $25 monthly? They both do the same thing on the surface. The 8830 seems more business oriented. I don't care about all the fluff the Q has. I am concerned about service only.

    This seems to be the best place for real world info. Can't trust the people at the stores or on the phone.

    Thanks

    BlackBerry offers instant email! It depends what's a priority to you...

    E-Mail and call quality are my most important issues. Texting, multimedia, etc. are unimportant. Doesn't the WM do instant email?

    The reconcile feature of the BB is outstanding!

    Basically if you have outlook running you can read a message and it marks as read in your outlook.

    If you delete it it removes it.

    So when your on the road and come home you don't have an inbox full of unread messages that you probably have replied to already via the berry.

    The sent items will stay in sync as well.

    BB in my opinion.
