    Hello everyone. I am in a situation where I need a "new" berry, but I am not elgible for an upgrade until September. What I am looking to do, since I never had an older thumb wheel style, is pick one up somewhere and use it until I can get a new one. I need it to be on VZW and function for BES & BIS email, be my phone, and browse the web. What model should I look for?

    I've just gone from an s1 to a 7290 and couldn't be happier. A great phone that is easy to use and does everything I want it to when I want it to, unlike an s1! Browsing is good, Opera mini4.2 is as quick as ever. I'd recommend one all day long. I'm now looking out for a 5810!

    You can eBay an 8703v for less then 50 dollars, and a 8830 probably isn't much more.

    Yes even a fairly newer one should not cost that much with all of the new releases.

    The 8700 on verizon or the 7130e. The 7130e has the suretype (pearl style) keyboard, a wheel, and has the same processor and memory.

    Both the 7130e and the 8703 have a 323mhz processor and 64mb of ram. Similar to the Pearl and the 8800. Both are fairly cheap for newer devices.
