    Depends what area you live in really and your needs.

    Verizon and Sprint may not be the only carrier choices or the best choices for you in your area.

    Nextel Blackberrys are reliable for plain email with no attachements but painfully slow in most regards.

    There may be other options depend on what area. Dont rule out Alltel, AT&T, Tmobile, AT&T and possible US Cellular. All of these companies offer Blackberry service.

    On the home page to Wireless Advisor you have a search function where you can put in your Zipcode and see what is available.

    Most companies have a test drive period. Good luck.

    Well if you say Sprint service worked better and you can save money with Sprint I would lean towards that. But of course you have to consider the termination fee as well.

    With my husband having Sprint/Nextel already, hands down there better cause all the talking we do together is free,:rolleyes: and dont we all love free. I think what I really need to know is what phone is better.:confused: I love playing games on my phone. and I have to pay alot to get games on the LG Dare (with BREW) and I do know the blackberry curve has (Java=free games)I love the music I can dounload. and I love typing (emailing). So I want to know what phone would be better for me. Its a big decision with the money involved thats why I want as much advise as I can get, I want to make it worth my time, and money.:browani:

    I would suggest that you get a phone that uses the Sprint network if you are going to switch. There is really not much reason to get a Nextel phone anymore.

    Coverage is good and Sprint has cheaper plans in my opinion. If you pick out a Sprint plan, I have found the same thing is usually $10-$20 more per month with Verizon.

    The Curve is a very nice device, check out the Windows mobile devices also. The HTC Touch Pro is coming out... this week I think? You can still get your e-mail. Good luck.

    I love my BB curve. I strongly suggest you dont have anything to do with the old nextel network, get the curve for sprint, its MUCH better. You get navigation, fast internet, pretty much whatever you want in a phone.

    The Mogul, Curve and Treo 800 are all sweet Sprint phones.

    Does Sprint offer a EVDO capable BB? Depends on how much online use you plan on using if you have a Dare you may want to stay with a EVDO capable device.
