I have a Centro with PalmOS on it, and love it. If you want that feedback, I'll share, but I won't pollute your poll otherwise.

Also, happy belated birthday. :)

No need. It must be a crackberry. It's work.

I love my Crackberry. I use it for both work and play. It has (but I do not use) tunes, movies, camera, GPS, etc. I would have to pay extra for the GPS and it's not something I need, so I saw no point.

It is slim enough to fit comfortably in my pocket (unlike my previous model). It has voice dialing. You can change the battery. It's a good little machine.

I'd be interested in the results of this- I'm looking at getting a Crackberry myself...

As long as you're not having to sync it with a Mac, you're good. The Blackberry Curve is pretty cool but I have a Mac so I had to take it back and get a Centro.

Server-side sync, I'm going to be running the server.

I recently upgraded to a curve from an 8100. I like the curve much better (more toys, yay camera phone) but the keys are pretty scrunched together. If my hands were bigger, I think typing would be challenging.

i think mine's a curve, but i'm not 100% sure.

a few comments i have:
1) when going to some webpages (LJ for example) i haven't figured how to make it look for the most recent version of that site without cleaning out the memory.

2) it works well as a phone as long as you have a bluetooth headset. the wired headset is bad for people with small ears...the buds are too big and you can't change them out.

3) i only use the online e-mail. so...i check my yahoo mail and aol mail using the browser.

4) i dont know any other service besides AT&T and it's various incarnations (having been with them since 1999 and never trying something else)

5) i dont use the calendar. no reason to.

6) one thing you didn't ask about was texting. the texting is wacky. you can't just start typing a text without having a phone number to send it to first. i hate that...with a passion. i would rather type my text and then choose who i'm going to send it to in case i want to send it to multiple people.

7) the synching thing is odd. again...it might just be that i'm not so very tech savvy that i'm doing it wrong or not quite right.

8) the music player is great IMHO. the only thing is...because it's not iTunes, you can't play locked iTunes on it even if you've paid for them already. (again...unless i'm doing something wrong)

Funny you should ask, I am a Blackberry server admin and am actually working with RIM on there certification program by taking "beta test" to help the testing process.

T-Mobile, the best provider out there.

Forgot them, but they're not an option for me.
