    I still can't make up my mind if I should get a land line this year or just buy a new cell. The one I got is going downhill.

    I have a pocket PC, I think the blackberry is both, phone and pocket pc?

    Get a blackberry. I did not want to get one at first thinking that I can just haul my laptop around in my truck to check emails every once in a while. My wife told me that I had to get one so I thought I would at least try it out. Now I couldn't live without it. I no longer have to log onto the computer when I get home just to check emails. I get emails for estimates all the time while out plowing, etc. The benefits are huge and it is only an extra $24 per month on top of my normal cell phone bill. Great purchase. Very addicting though.

    I'm not so sure a Black berry syncs with outlook calender. I was just reading about them. I think I would need something that runs widows mobile 6 but I don't like the look of those Palms.

    We went with the Samsung i760. It has mobile 6. Never had a Blackberry before so can't compare. Happy with it so far, been about 4 months.

    Got rid of my BB and got a Moto QM9....will never go back to a black berry. The Qm9 is more advanced and is widows 6. You can't run an office program on the BB and surfing the net takes more time on the BB.

    The Qp is like an ipod also with music features.
