    Re: Comparison Chart: SK3 vs BB 8100

    ok... I double check on "2" and "3". It's correct what i have. I check the manual for Sidekick 3 and there's no information about charging the Sidekick 3 using the USB connected to your computer.

    I asked about the flight mode on the Blackberry 8100 at Blackberry Forums and they told me it does have it. It does not say "flight mode". It says "wireless on / off".

    Well the 8 e-mail accounts will really help me. Even though I only have two "real" accounts (not including the one I'll get from T-Mobile), I have tons of alias addresses.

    #2 was not an error really, but just some poor phrasiology.

    Good page!

    By the way, which do you prefer? I tried out dummy models yesterday at the mall and the Pearl's keyboard seemed annoying due to its size and rubber-ness.

    If you check my cell phone information on this left side of this post, you will see that I have Blackberry 8100.

    I love it! I blows Sidekick 3 away!

    I will say that I don't like the keyboard either but after using it for a while, you will get used to it.

    What makes the Pearl blow the Sidekick II away?

    I'm thinking about getting a Pearl or Sidekick 3, and I'm leaning towards the Sidekick 3. I just like the whole feel of it better, plus the unlimited texting.

    Look at my chart again and you will see why. It can do so much more than a Sidekick 3 and it cost less.

    The Blackberry 8100 do have unlimited text messaging if you get the 1000 or 1500 anytime minutes Blackberry Plan. It includes voice and data. It's hidden away at the T-mobile web site so not too many people know about it. Here's the link.

    Yeah, I think I'm going to stick with the SK3. You can't get unlimited texting with it on a FamilyTime Plan, it has a better design and keyboard, a much higher coolness facter, and allover everything I need. Plus, I may be getting a prepaid phone.

    ok... I just made the chart so people will be aware of what they are getting.

    I seen stories about people saying they wish it can do this and that when the Blackberry 8100 can already do that.

    If you are happy with the Sidekick 3 than keep. I am happy with my 8100.

    If I knew the Blackberry can do so much more than a Sidekick, my first smart phone will be a Blackbery and not a Sidekick.
