    Default Sprint Gets on the BlackBerry Bandwagon

    At long last, Sprint has begun offering its first Blackberry wireless handheld, the 7750.

    Finally! Now that completes BlackBerry availability on all major North American carriers. Although the 7750 isn't exactly the best model; my favourite model is the 7290 which has double the amount of memory.

    I'm waiting to see what pricing structure Sprint will use for a data plan or "Blackberry plan". Adding a phone to my existing Sprint account costs me about $25 a month ($20 plus $5 taxes/surcharges). I was able to use a CF2031 Sprint card in my Ipaq 2210 as a phone account but I'm guessing Sprint will be different (more $) with the Blackberry.

    Also, maybe Sprint will offer hosting BES.

    I've never used a Blackberry but people that own them tell me the phone on the Blackberry is not very good, and they use the device for email only. If anybody has experience on the phone, I would like to read it.
    I plan to keep my very small Samsung A680 in any event, but I would like to have a secound phone number (different area code) for business purposes. I don't know if I can tell/ask Sprint to give me an area code that is different then my other shared phones?

    Anyway, I've been waiting for this (Sprint Blackberry) for some time, if the above specifications (from Sprint) isn't satisfactory then I may use Nextel or Cingular (7290) blackberry.
    Soon we will have push-email !
