    I'm thinking of upgrading my current phone to a Blackberry Bold or Curve and I was wondering if someone could help me with my questions.

    Usually I have access to a wifi connection (at home/uni), however, when I'm out I'd like to have access to my email/internet and therefore I should opt for the Bold due to its 3G connection, right?

    Also, this may sound stupid, however, when at home, am I right it saying that the phone will use a wifi connection over a 3G one?

    Finally, I'm likely to stay with T-Mobile. Will using the 3G connection be covered by the 'BlackBerry email Booster - £7.50' or do I need to purchase 'Web'n'walk Booster - £7.50', or is there a charge per kb downloaded?

    Thanks in advance.

    You can choose whether to use wi-fi or 3G... And yes, it is covered by the booster...

    Thanks for the reply.

    So if I want to access my email on my street (where there is no free wifi connection), I should go for a Bold over a Curve?

    Also, to those of you who have a Bold, what is the battery life like?

    I know you said you're likely to stay with T Mobile, but Orange will do you free email and internet (unlimited useage) on a contract until the end of this month, and it is for the entire 18 months

    I have looked had a quick look at what Orange are offering. Unfortunately, I'll miss that as I can only update/change my contract in roughly two weeks. However, if any Orange deal sounds good I'll try and get T Mobile to match it.
