Blackberry is the way to go. Best phone I have ever owned. The only reason
I upgrade is to get better features (they don't break). IMO, they have
second to none ease of usability once you learn how to use the track wheel.
Before Blackberry I had a PocketPC 2003 which ran Windows. I hated it. Had
to reboot at least once a day. Didn't like using a stylus at all (kept
losing them and they were cumbersome).
I have the 8703e and I love it. My wife has one too and that is how we keep
our calendars in sync. We get a monthly service from www.mailstreet.com
(great service) so we never have to manually sync, it syncs over the
wireless connection. I will be upgrading sometime next year to the latest
model so when I am on the road I can talk and have a data connection (i.e.
connected to my laptop) at the same time.

Subject: What kind of cell phone?
I'm preparing to upgrade our cell phones now that mine is held together with
a couple pieces of tape, a band-aid and some baling wire.
My carrier, ATT, has the Nokia 6555, the LG CU515, and a few different
Blackberry models. These are all in the push to talk category, which my wife
and I both like.
Does anybody have any recommendations? Who else besides Sprint/Nextel has
the PTT feature?
