    Do you like it? Is there an alternative that's better? I'm looking for advice as far as getting into the world of handheld e-mail devices.

    My brother loves his, as do several friends.

    I know the Treo is popular, as well.

    I would not get the Blackbetter model that does not have a separate button for each letter. I tried one of those out for a few days and returned it, it was way too confusing, and I am a cell phone person, I've had like 12. They sell models with one letter per button. Or get a Treo.

    love, love, love my blackberry 8700.

    love it.

    great for everything. and it's a surprisingly good phone, which is why i held off on a blackberry for a while

    i can't imagine not having it

    i'm so anal about my email, i always have it now. also, have used it to update my work blog with breaking news and beaten competition by quite a bit by doing it. great, great stuff.

    I had a BlackBerry for my job over the past few months. I never realized how much efficiency it would allow me to gain to be on top of the emails and not constantly need internet access on the road, etc.

    I do have one of the newer two-letter-to-a-button models, and I actually don't mind it at all. I value the space saved versus having to carry the bulkier BlackBerry.

    I would suggest BlackBerry over Treo, mostly because I find the click wheel much more user-friendly than the stylus and touch screen.

    Mine was on Cingular service, which was fine for the email and internet, but the phone coverage was terrible. I was still carrying my regular Verizon phone as well, and it is much more reliable.
