Current: BB Bold 9650
Next: On the fence- not sure if I should upgrade to the BB 9930 or an Android, specifically liking the Galaxy S2 very much at the moment... (I suffer from BBM addiction)
I see the Galaxy S2 on Sprint.com for $199 with the upgrade. I notice that Amazon wireless has it for $149. Is there any downside to upgrading and buying through Amazon? I see it walks me through choosing a plan and options even though its an upgrade and says the plan chosen will go into effect for the whole "family". my main concern is if I will lose any discounts I currently have on my account.

Do they have the leave my plan as it is option? A lot of the companies have that now (Wirefly, Letstalk etc)
There shouldn't be a downside. Try and see if you can find it for that price in store ( Best Buy, RAdio Shack) they for sure don't ruin your plans.

I dont see any "leave my plan as is" option.
Best buy and Radio shack sell the phone for $199.

Did she come from a BB? Is she having BBM withdrawal? Keyboard withdrawal? All of which may necessitate nightly lines of a certain extra-curricular substance for me...

Ha, but she did have the withdrawal... that's the only thing that concerns me. Otherwise, I'd be ready to jump ship.

(Kind of waiting to see what RIM has in store with their latest QNX acquisition...)

No keyboard withdrawal, she did miss bbm in the beginning but sms and other im services work as well :)

They announced the BBX OS today. But forget about it; no way they'll get anything near the apps on iOS/Android

I'd be content with just a totally revamped BB OS. If I have to use the BB web browser for one more day, I'm gonna...
