This was a massive leap forward in technology for me, changing from my previous simple mobile phone on PAYG. I love how you can use a standard USB cable to synchronise Contacts, Calendar, Tasks etc. with MS outlook on a PC. You never again need have out-of-date details. Wi-fi, web access, email are all superb. BBM is incredibly useful if you have friends or family with a Blackberry. Auto-correct works perfectly (I loathe predictive). Battery life is very reasonable considering my usage. Web browsing is effectively unlimited due to the way BBs operate. Wi-fi enables rapid access to web pages & email if you have a wi-fi router at home, work or on holiday. Almost instant push email is incredibly useful. The keypad is a bit fiddly but can be helped by cultivating your thumbnail. Twitter works well if you're so inclined. I find "Documents To Go" a great addition for viewing PDFs, Word, Excel & Powerpoint files. The relatively low cost of my contract makes this phone an absolute bargain of the decade.
On the downside, the camera isn't particulary great and the omission of a flash is unfortunate. Absence of sat-nav means I will be imminently upgrading to the 9300 model.
