Default WTT/WTB: Verizon BB or similar pda

So i've been tossing the idea of switching to a more traditional pda with an actual qwery keyboard, over my Samsung Omnia "touchscreen" Qwery. I do ALOT of texting and emailing and its just such a pain to get it done quickly with my fat azz fingers and the setup on the Omnia. Either way, im willing to throw some cash for a used crackberry or similar pda phone with an actual set of qwery keys or even trade my MINT (i got a fresh one coming thanks to my VZW insurance) Omnia for a similar condition replacement (plus cash depending on model etc).

My main goal is to get something easier to email without spending much money. I am planning to leave verizon in the spring with the gf and get a family plan with ATT so she can get her damn iphone and i can rock the new hotness nokia.......or suck it up and get an iphone too

thx for reading! lol

Meri - I tweaked the hell out of it but you can't do anything with the crappy keyboard. I have to use the stupid wand and even then if i get into a frenzy of typing (i'm quick with my emails), it doesn't keep up and either misses letters or just puts the wrong one in.

Nhat - Sorry but the Pearl is a PAIN, my brother had one and threw it at the sales ppl 2 days after he got it lol.

After further conversations, My gf decided it will probably be cheaper in the long run to just stick it out with verizon and just redo our contracts as a single family plan and just upgrade our phones as well. Their 2 for 1 bb deal has her interested, she'll play with the new tour and decide if she wants to join the 21st century and get a pda lol. She isn't feeling ATTs plan prices (lots of extra money for certain features she wants) plus the cost of the 3gs on top of it turned her off it seems. She is always indecisive so this may change before saturday when we are planning to go to the verizon store lol.

I've been loking at reviews. Seems like the only issue is the trackball prematurely failing. I always get insurance though so im not pressed on that. Also considering the HTC Ozone if my gf aint feeling a pda and just wants a flip phone or something.

they have a family data plan that covers unlimited data for all phones on the plan. My work has an additional discount on plans so it works out nicely. We should be saving $40-$50 a month going from two independent plans to a single family plan.

Appreciate it but it's looking like I'll just be getting a new phone saturday. Gf is still onboard with sticking with Verizon and getting a new family plan. THinking Tour or Ozone and selling my Omnia on Craigslist to make the $$ back for buying the new phones.
