HELP 7290 OR 7280 OR ???


Feb 15, 2005, 1:19 AM
I'm having information overload and need major advise!

I'm self-employed and travels all over North America. I think I've narrowed down my options to the 7290 or 7280 - but there is a $300 price difference. Is the difference worth the money?

I need the blackberry because of the emails. I've never had a blackberry, so I'm not sure what i really need. To narrow it down I need to make phone calls and send/recieve emails...

Is there a better option?

Any advise will help...Thanks!

If all you do is travel within North America, then save the $300. The only difference between the two is that the 7290 is a "global" phone.

Sorry about that last post, I was wrong! The 7250 is the "America only" phone.

I believe the 7290 is worth the extra cost, but there are many sites available where you can purchase the unit for apprimately $250.

The 7290 is quad band. If you travel over seas, that extra band will come in handy.
