Your Opinion on Best Carrier For the Pear

I've researched it so much I am even more confused than when I started looking. I believe I get an employee discount through verizon and maybe sprint, %20 but not sure. Are there any differences you think I should know about? Plan difference? Problems?

Can anyone with Verizon help me out? I want to get this phone. My contract is up in July but I don't want to wait till then.

My birthday is coming up and I have had my eye on this phone and because I text like crazy I want something a little more exciting and a keyboard. I have owned Nokia's Samsung and Motorola's I need something new! I heard it is complicated at first but it gets better. So basically I want to know what everyones opinion is. Should I get this phone? How does everybody feel about it?

At least twice a day all my text messages and call log deletes itself. I even had to get a replacement because it kept happening and blackberry support and the sprint tech people didn't know how to fix it. It keeps doing it even though on my text options it's set to keep the texts "forever" and to keep the last "50 items." Can anyone help me????

Getting phone without a data plan

I was going to upgrade my phone to the blackberry pearl at VZW. The sales person told me that I will need to get a Blackberry data plan because the phone continuously connects to the internet to update stuff, even if you don't connect to it yourself. Can someone tell me if this is true?
