Sounds pretty good, i pay £25 for that. Make sure you get unlimited internet.
I’ve got a Bold, had it about 6months and i’m impressed with it so far but if you read reviews the new Curve or the Niagra are the ones to go for. You can install a full Google suite, Maps etc, for free which will sync with Google calendar without any trouble. Blackberry app store is opening in a few months too, it’ll be like the Apple one but actually useful.

I had a Pearl and found it difficult t use, predictive mobile phone text on a QWERTY layout was a bit odd, also struggled with writing URLs or peoples names.
If you’re going to do alot of email go for the Curve, also bigger screen for web browsing, although its still not very good.Posted 8 years agoPiefaceMember
They seem to be the popular choice for corporate use, I heard (from an unreliable source) that they’re easier to integrate with enterprise email systems. If thats the only real benefit, as an individual user I’d look at a smartphone (I get my BB through work) and play about. The iphones are very cool. Unfortunately not many shops allow you to try them out properly, they tend to be dummy units don’t they?Posted 8 years agosamuriMember
I have a pearl, I think it’s pretty good. URL’s are a bit fiddly though for some reason but the rest is fine. Yes, blackberrys work best with enterprise email systems. I’ve been involved with blackberrys at our place since they arrived and we set up the blackberry servers to talk to RIM via vodafone a long time ago and it works great most of the time. I’d say we have around 1000 blackberry users. For lots of people it’s the primary contact method for email. The pearl is our most popular device by far with the curve the next. The pearlis more like a phone so I guess that’s what attracts people to it.
However, security considerations aside, if I was recommending a handheld device that does just about everything you would want it to, I’d say try for an iphone. Absolutely streets ahead of a blackberry. The above about the apps store is laughable, it’s probably the most inovative method of getting apps onto your handheld device ever.Posted 8 years ago
