Yep. You can get prepaid BB devices. But not usually the most recent releases unless you purchase an unlocked one. Which is costly.

I second that, its costly. I had to pay a 35% premium for an unlocked Pearl direct from Blackberry, no network bloatware though : )

I have a BB Torch for work, but compared to my Android phone, it's feature poor. I like the keypad, but lack of apps makes it not much fun to use. I mainly use it for work email and some texting. It's very convenient to have access to email, etc. when I'm traveling or away from my desk.

Exactly, Blackberries are more business-oriented. It's most secure too! I tested the security and Blackberries are by far have the best security while iPhones are the most easy to crack.

This is one of the main reasons I use a BB. Plus the pushed emails.

Im using an unlocked Pearl with no contract. BBM requires BIS which is avaiable on PrePay for around $10 p/m, and I had to install LogicMail for email, but everything else works.

Emails are my lifeblood. Plus with the BeBuzz app I know which of my many email accounts is coming through when I get an email. It certainly helps screen them. I can also assign BeBuzz for different individuals like you'd assign a ringtone. Not to mention the BB keyboard is superior. I do a lot of typing on my BB.

BB web surfing is adequate. I use the native browser, Bolt and Opera Mini. Depending on how it renders each site.

I couldn't really give a rat's rump about Angry Bird or any game really.

Also, BB has **** good business apps available. Which, in the end, is paramount.

My BB 9780 Bold is doing well.  Funny, I just found out a few weeks ago that it supports FLAC natively.  Imagine that.  It sounds pretty good to boot and with a 32GB microSD, I have all the space I need.

The only issue I have with my 9780 is the terrible lag. Other than that, it's a great mobile phone.

I sold my Pearl 9105 to get an iPhone 4 or 5, but after reading the reviews of the Bold 9900 I am so tempted !

Long time BB user here currently with a Bold.  The only reason I have a BB is that's what provisioned through work.  If I were to get a personal mobile device the last device I would purchase would be a Blackberry.
