    Negotiate with a store rep. I got Verizon to sell me my pearl for $229. Retail was $419. All I can say is it was totally worth it! Good luck.

    Both are nice ... I have the 8830, love it and prefer the full qwerty keyboard but wish it had a camera and/or wifi. I got the 8830 from Sprint for $149.

    I started with the Pearl but I switched to 8820 for the bigger screen and full qwerty. But both are good devices.

    I tried the 8830 out and it wasn't for me. I have the Pearl and LOVE it.
