Abbey I have been telling you since ages that mails are BEST on any BB. They are designed for that yaar.

Yup, I know. That post was in a lighter vein. Maybe I'll pick up this model when it's time for me to buy a BB

Anyway, I will look forward to your review!

Cheers,
Vikram

I'm going to London on 29th april or so. I use vodafone prepaid here.
How can I make my bbm to work over there? Can i get i regular simcard there and activate bbm on my existing curve?
Or else the other option is to keep the bbm plan activated in India and then use bbm over there via wifi?
Help guys.

Ahh!! Got a little excited about the 9220 but the reviews aren't that good. I guess its the same 8520 with a new look. Same old wine in new bottle.

Get a pay as you go sim from any good network in London and ask the store to activate bis. It's usually 5 pounds a month. Deactivate it before you return.

Iam planning to upgrade from my 1-year old Blackberry Torch (9800) to Blackberry Torch (9810)

Can someone tell me what's current best price for 9810 with Bill & Warranty from Redington for 18 months?

Would be interesting to know the cost of same without a B&W too

P.S: The best price quote that I got in Hyderabad with B&W is Rs.25,900

25,900 for a redington imported 9810 is a good deal. no clue about grey pricing.
