BlackBerry Curve 8900
Certainly Aimed For AT&T
or so the rumor goes...
Look, from a business prospective, if AT&T let out information that the 89xx version of the Curve was coming out, trying to sell out of the 83xx series would drop sharply. They're milking it for as long as they can.
but until then i'm selling curves with my bold in the holster haha
Face it, if you get a blackberry of any kind your going to get or in some cases, required to get the data package right?? AT&T's blackberry data is $30 and $50 for unlimited data + text. If you got the curve 8900 you'll just be getting an EDGE phone... which is slower connection, not much but emails and spending that much money a month.
OR.. You can get the bold, which has 3G that gives you faster speeds, plus you can stream videos, live music, a...
And as for data plans, you sould probably check your prices. AT&T's are close to Verizon's prices, but T-Mobile's are much cheaper. For 25 bucks you get unlimited data and 400 SMS/MMS, and for 35 you get unlimited. Not 50 bucks.
I know t-mobs are cheaper, but its because they have a smaller coverage area across the united states as a whole. AT&T's is bigger as far as rural areas are concerned (at least from my experience.) In my opinion T-Mob is best if you live in a big city and never plan to leave.
i don't know how people you know are turning off 3G b/c on an AT&T Bold its not an option. They took it out for whatever reason.
I have the Bold, I use it constantly from morning until early in the morning the next day and I have no battery issues. I don't have WiFi turned on because I frankly don't need it. 3G gets the job done just fine.
I have not heard of battery heating ...
