getting first blackberry to replace my voyager (that is wearing out)

Hi: I'd like to get a blackberry (I'm in college and work full time) but don't know which one to get. I have a voyager now that 

I like except that the internet drives me crazy on it. My phone is wearing out (the jack keeps getting looser for example) as I use the phone for everything all the time. So which BB to get? Thanks! Teri

If you like touchscreen devices you should wait for the new Storm 2, coming out in about a month. Personally, I hate touchscreens which is why I went with the Tour 9630 which is an excellent device. The keyboard on it is wonderful to type on and it's got a great bright screen that's easy to watch videos on.

If the Tour is too big for your tastes you can wait for the new Curve 2 that's coming out in about a month as well. Smaller than the Tour and more svelte. It'll be cheaper too, most likely because of less memory and less processing muscle, but it's still going to be a powerful phone.

I went from treo 650, to voyager, to Tour.  I really liked the 650, my wife now has the voyager, and I like the Tour more every day, just wish I could learn (faster) to use it.

I'm leaning towards getting the Tour, my new every 2 isn't in effect until February, but my phone won't last until then. I do qualify for an early upgrade, but that will negate my Feb rebate.

I went to the Verizon store today and the manager let me try out his storm, says it works pretty well. Was looking at that vs Curve, vs Tour. I'm a bit afraid of going to all touchscreen, as I don't use the one on my voyager very often.
