I guess the safe question ask yourself if your confused about the blackberry products online is to ask yourself does it have a trackpad? If so it's one of the new ones and buy it. However the differences with the new blackberry are slightly noticeble to most people. Therefore an upgrade may not be the best idea for most people who are happy only receiving emails and sending text messages. Or for the bargain hunters that can find one for a penny.
On ATT and T-mobile we only recommend the Blackberry Bold 9700. T-mobile is already ahead of ATT when the release Monday November 16th. The Bold is the only blackberry on ATT/T-mobile with 3G. It helps on the occasion you still want to browse the web, chat on bb messenger and send/receive emails.
T-Mobile New Blackberry Bold 9700:
On Sprint or Verizon we recommend you wait for the Blackberry Tour 2. That will have the trackpad, more memory and wi-fi. One of the great features about the Blackberry Tour is it can work on any network around the world. You can have a Tmobile or ATT sim card and switch to Verizon/Sprint if you have the money to have two plans simultaneously. The Blackberry Curve on Sprint/Verizon can't do that. The Blackberry curves on Sprint/Verizon also have a lower screen resolution and mega-pixel camera. As they are nearly identical in price. The Tour is the best bet not only for the added features but higher value you'll be able to sell the Tour two years from now. As it's quadband if can be sold anywhere around the world so you have a larger pool of buyers to sell to.
