    My contract ends next month so I'm looking to get a new phone soon. I'd like a blackberry just becuase i want to be able to type faster than i can on a touch screen.
    I liked the BB 9790 because it's both touch and type which is pretty handy.
    I was looking for any other opinions though, What do you guys think? Does anyone own one?

    Oh, and it's a pretty good price, i found a contract at £13.50 pm.

    Seems like a good phone to me, i'm currently using a £10 smashed up Tesco phone, with my contract sim in which is also coming to an end. Where can i get this £13.50pm deal? thanks

    http://www.mobilife.com/mobile-deals...erry-bold-9790. The top deal on this page. You have to get this by redemption though, but it's a great deal if you remember to redeem! The 100 mins might not be enough for everybody, but it's fine for me!

    Brilliant, thanks. Yeah 100 minutes is perfect for me, i'm more of just a texter. Have you ever done redemption before?

    Yeah, i think you just phone them up to redeem...I can't really remember though sorry!
    How much does 100MB internet give you? I don't really know how much that works out as?

    This is the description tmobile gives for each amount :


    Basic internet Good for checking emails, browsing the internet now and then, and seeing what's happening on Facebook. 250MB (3G)


    Standard internet

    Comes with WiFi, and great if you use your smartphone quite a bit for browsing, and checking out Facebook, as well as a little YouTube now and then. 750MB (3G)

    Extra internet

    Comes with WiFi, and perfect if you use the internet a lot for browsing, downloading apps, watching YouTube or BBC iPlayer, or if you use your phone as a modem sometimes. 1.5GB (3G)


    Seeing as 100mb isnt even on this i'd definately try to get a bigger data plan seeing as blackberrys are extremely data dependent.
