Re: Why is the 9870 not shown on UK site? am I buying a dud?

cheers, whats diff between 9850 and 9860 then, Blackberry have so many diff numbers for same phones!

 

So if you had a choice as of now, would you get the 9850/60 or 9810? obviusoly main diff is screen size, and full touch/keyboard.

 

Is the touch screen typing fine on your 9850? this is what I'm worried on for the daughter, she types so so fast on her current 9300 on that tiny keyboard, no way I could!!

The 9850 only has the added CDMA network bands. You don't want it for the UK. Otherwise it is identical to the 9860.

 

I love my 9850 screen. If she loves the keyboard, she'll likely want the 9810

I agree 100%. That's a great link about phones and eBay.
THE BITTERNESS OF POOR QUALITY, LINGERS LONG AFTER THE CHEAPNESS OF PRICE, IS SOON FORGOTTEN.
