I've had this phone for almost 5 months and it's my first blackberry. For the price, it's a pretty sweet deal. In my opinion it's a great phone and yes, to enjoy it you should get a data plan. Apps, functionality and ease of use are very high with this model. The battery life could have been better (I usually charge at the end of the day) and I do miss a radio function (although with a 16GB memory card and support for up to 32GB doesn't worry me much). Overall I give it 9 out of ten. It's a great buy if you're new to blackberries and also if you'd like to go easy on the pocket (the other models are a tad bit too expensive). With an appropriate data plan you'll be well on your way. :)

i was wondering, why some bold/storm users condemning this model jz because it has no 3g or the trackpad feature?
