    I need a phone that has a calender and planner on it. I have cingular and my razr sucks hairy donkey balls.

    should i buy a pearl now or wait for the iphone, which i want really, really bad.

    also, where is the cheapest place to get a pearl if i go that route?

    I would go for the Iphone if you can afford it. You will have so many 14 year old girls fawning all over you because of your cute Iphone you wont know what to do with your self. But really I would rock the Iphone if I could afford it.

    My SLVR died in March and I had to get a new phone. I wanted to wait for the iPhone, but I ended up getting a Pearl. It is pretty sweet. If you own a Mac you need to get a third party app ($40) to do the syncing half way right. The blackberry software for mac is horrible, and not worth the effort I put into it. However if you have a PC the software is fairly easy, but the bluetooth sync is not worth the complexity.

    At this point though the iPhone is scheduled for a mid June release you are a month away. Just wait and enjoy having the sweetest piece of consumer electronics since the personal computer.

    The pearl is cool, but it does not have wi-fi, and the browser sucks. However if you absolutly need something right away it is the sweetest thing on the market right now.

    Oh and to answer your question... neither. Iphone is overpriced and the pearls "trackball" is too small. I have big hands and i over power it :) and sometimes i couldnt scroll.
