hello~ I'm looking to buy a new blackberry through VZ...there are so many kinds and it would be nice to get some feedback from people who's been using blackberry previously~ is it worth it? and which model would you recommend? I'll be using it mainly for web browsing and I heard you can send txt to other blackberries at no charge (is it true?)

I own a Blackberry Bold 9700 (T-mobil) and its been a solid investment so far. They take a while to get used to but if you keep learning the ins and outs, you'll become much more efficient. I recommend downloading the Bolt app for web browsing.
Yes there is Black Berry Messenger which is free texting to anyone with a Blackberry. I have many friends in foreign countries, so this has been a godsend to me. I would be happy to answer anymore questions you have.

I work for VZW, The best BB's out right now are the Tour and the Storm2. The Tour still suffers from the almost archaic trackball (which is troublesome in the past), but other than that it is a really solid phone. The curve2 has the touch sensor pad but not as powerful as the Tour, and ofc the storm 2 is all touch. I dislike touch stuff myself (just a personal thing) but the storm2 has wifi so i'd get that over the others.
Honestly, If I was you i'd go with the droid or some of the other new vzw smart phones coming out soon. Nexus one (and probably some more shit for summer, this is how it usually works.)
PS- phonescoop.com for reviews, and user pros/cons. Thank me later.

Solid choice to go with BlackBerry. No matter what model you choose, you can't go wrong with it. I have had the original Storm (Storm 2 is out) for almost a year and have loved it so far. It used to be a bit laggy before the software update but I have no complaint about it now whatsoever. It is true that you can send messages to other BlackBerry users through the instant-messenger program called BlackBerry Messenger. It's ten times better than regular texting. You can record and send voice notes, send pictures, videos, have a simultaneous conference chat with multiple people, and so on. It also has status updates and couple other useful functions. Definitely worth it.
If your priority is text/instant message/email (push email suddenly makes you use email all the time) then get a Bold 9700 (but it's GSM only so not on Verison, so wait for the Bold 9650 or whatever it is that is coming to Verizon soon)
If your priority is browsing the Internet, then get the Storm 2.

I just try to be myself, whatever that is. I don't think about how I'll be remembered. I just want to be consistent over a long period of time. That's what the great players do. -Dan Marino

I'm thinking of Orlando or some nice beach as my primary destination but nothing's for sure. We'll probably leave around early-mid January and will be staying 3 nights.
