What Will I Miss Out On If I Buy A Blackberry Mobile Instead Of One With 3g?

April 16, 2009

I am looking to buy a blackberry which is quadband GSM with GPRS which will enableinternet, intranet and email retrieval while on the move. Does anyone know if I should be looking at 3G instead? If I buy a blackberry what am I missing out on?

    I just got a new 8700g blackberry. Its great, but it doesn’t have a camera, or video player on it. Yes, you can use the internet, but it is notoriously slow and not always accurate. Plus, your SMS text messages and emails all arrive into the same imbox, which confuses me!! However, I still think BB’s are better than phones, so I’m sticking with mine.

    To be honest you’re not missing anything. I have 3 3g phones, and i just bought today an old Blackberry 7230.
    With 3g phones you can do face to face video calling, its supposed to be the mobile equivalent of broadband. Blackberry dont use 3g it uses GPRS which is marginally slower but not much slower then 3g.
    Blackberry is more corporate than most mobile phones, as it is capable of hooking upto servers for email.

    3G causes more problems than it solves in my opinion. Wi-Fi is a good option though, like on the 8900.

Got something to say?
