    Have one? Yes.
    Like it? Sometimes.
    Worth the money? My company pays - I dont care.
    Daily uses? Email, cell phone when not in range of another phone.
    Would I get one if they didn't pay for it? No - not worth it. I am connected enough, and have my own cell phone. I don't need email 24/7.

    Yes...I'll reiterate.

    It's expensive.
    I dont need email access 24/7.
    I already have a cell phone.

    Aside from that, then no. It's the most fabulous piece of technology I've ever and WILL ever own!

    i worked for a datapod support for a cell phone company in the states, we did blackberry support, (on the last to blackberry models not the new ones)
    and from the suppost end, they worked pretty well, most problems were usings not understanding all the features.

    Really what you got to ask your self is what featuers you need, and what would be suit you.

    You need to be REALLY important to justify one of those bad boys. Corporate owners/VP's/CEO etc only. Unless you're on call 24-7.

    I've got a Sidekick II, and I prefer it over the blackberry. It's got a better keyboard and it's still got the apps I want (Email, AIM, SSH, web browser).

    It's fine, if the website is made for small browsers. It doesn't support javascript or activex, but it does display pictures relatively well. I can effectively use MSN Hotmail (Mobile), Exchange 2003 OWA, Google, Yahoo, the basic yellow-pages sites, fantasysports.yahoo.com, and basically anything else you'd use in a normal day of 'business' browsing.

    Flashkit??

    and do all these services depend on GPRS or other services depending on the network, here in Egypt we have GSM, so will this work, do you know if it functions outside US and if it has the same functions elsewhere?

    This message was posted via sidekick II... Yess, flashkit works (but no yellow background).

    No, it does not seem to play videos. There is also no mp3 player (which I thought was dumb)

    I know it's GSM+GPRS, but I'm not sure if GSM alone is sufficient for the browsing capabilities. I wouldn't want to say it would work if I don't know for sure. Call a dealer and find out?
