Pearl's screen is decent, slightly larger than your standard mobile phone. The Curve has a much wider screen, and both are very clear.

And I'm just wired to the emails, not Facebook as some people I know. (Imagine going drinking and clubbing, meeting people and someone going 'Hey, what's your Facebook?,' as they log on there and then, and expect you to 'accept request' on the spot.)

I love love love love love my BlackBerry. I pretty much use it for everything. I would highly recommend the Storm, but it is a little bulky for me. My Pearl is wonderful, but the functions are a little limited, but the size is just perfect.

Usually, I would use the other devices to edit and read through documents on the go, or use the Messenger, or surf the net, if time allows. If you really need to check your emails that frequently, there are other options like PDAs and WiFi enabled phones, but the BlackBerry is a very nice statement. Depending on your model, my Pearl does not have the 'editing' function.

Not sure about the going price now, but it should be around RM2000 onwards. If you're on Celcom Postpaid, and you are on a BlackBerry account, they can give you a new Storm complementary, but you need to maintain a bill of RM1000 per month. I cannot live without my BlackBerry. Yes, I am one of those people.


Yeah...everyone I asked always said they loved their blackberry and recommend I get one ASAP. I just want to make sure I am investing in a blackberry, not wasting my money on it.

You have a storm? I was thinking about waiting until they release storm in Indonesia before I join the BB community. I mean touch screen, gravity screen, blablabla...Its an IPhone contender, but I was told that it is not worth the wait as it hangs, blablabla... is it really so?

For RM2000 it is very cheap. In Indonesia, Storm is not out yet, BB Bold retail for about RM2300 with provider contract and about RM2600 without contract. They said that storm will cost around RM3000. Better go to Kuching and buy one.

I almost buy a used pearl titanium (BB 3120) yesterday. It was 2 months old and the last owner asked for RM1000 for it. But I was told by a friend that 3120 the worst of all blackberry, the keypad is bad. Is it really so? I was thinking about starting at a lower end first.

RM1000 for a phone service? Whoa...you would end up paying more than a storm, for it. All the provider in Indo charge a monthly service of about RM50 for unlimited BB service (email, internet, etc.), except for phone calls and sms which you have to pay separately.

There's a reason why they call it the 'CrackBerry.'

Pearl 8100 and 8120 aren't the best, 8110 is. I'm still on my 8130, has excellent mapping capability, but I hardly use it. The Pearl's keypad isn't bad, but I had issues with it a few days ago, but it was my fault (don't bring your BlackBerry to events where you're bound to spill alcohol on it, if at all possible) and it went back to normal after a few hours of 'strike.'

If you're really used to the standard BlackBerry keypad, then the Pearl's 'two characters per-button' might be a little frustrating. If you're used to a standard mobile phone's keypad, then you might be a little more adjusted.

A friend of mine in Sydney has the Storm, I enjoy playing with it. I won't call it a contender to the iPhone, but it's similar in nature to the Samsung's version of the iPhone. All high-tech phones tend to hang after a while, be it a HP PDA or the Sony Ericsson P1.

I also have a Bold, which is quite good. Haven't used it for very long, but it seems promising. I would suggest you get a first hand BlackBerry, just to test all the stuff firsthand, and not be stuck with whatever issues the previous owner had.

Thanks for the tips Mocha, I have ordered a BB Bold today. It will be here in a few days time. I am all excited now. But I promised my wife the next gadget I bought will be hers, so this BB will be hers. I will get myself familiarize with it while I wait for storm.

Clever, clever, clever, Downsouth; glad to be of service. Hope you'll have fun with your BlackBerry, but don't get too addicted to it, otherwise you can't function without it, bringing it everywhere from the office to the toilet.

Hahaha...I have been known to bring to toilet gadgets such as laptop, pda, mobile phone, even magazines, newspaper, or any other stuffs that can keep me busy.

Received my wife's Bold yesterday and has set it up. Its a nice gadget.

My verdict is: If you are always on a go (be it in town or out of town) and needed to be available for contact always or does not have an internet connection always readily available, it is a really nice device.

But if you already have a pc with internet connection anytime you want it, and already in front of it most of the time (either working, studying or playing) then, blackberry will be an expensive gadget with not much use.
