Re: BlackBerry 8900 :D
The BB needs a data plan. They are good phones for email, texting, sms and chat type stuff. They have good battery life and are reliable.
The 8900 is not the newest model, it's over a year and half old and doesn't have 3G. The Bold 9700 is the latest and there is a Tour 96xx that is similar.
The only thing is they are not that good for music, apps, video or anything like that. They can do it, but it's subpar.
I have a BB now and my next phone is going to be a iPhone 5 next year or Android.
