Default BlackBerry as good as a smart phone?

My woman just got a Blackberry Pearl, had to laugh at her at first, as all the accounts guys have em at my place. Once i saw it though, have to say, pretty wicked phone, and with all the facebook, IM, and mobile internet its not hard to see why you see a lot of kids with em. Very nice, they have a fun little music trivia game going about at the moment too promoting them, you can win stuff at the end like SD memory cards and MP3 tracks. not bad at all. http://www.princeorpretender.com

I've played around with the Pearl and I loved how tiny it sleek it felt but I could never justify using their service knowing that at least twice in the past year they have knocked out service to all of their customers in the US. It is just uncalled for. At least with my Smartphone, if Microsoft explodes I still get my mail pushed to me

I have also always found BlackBerry's data plans to be ridiculous when compared to any other phone on the market. If you are not part of a big corporation, it is almost insane to pay more than 200% the price of a Smartphone data plan. This I actually blame on the carriers, do we really need 8 different data SKU's for the same Internet?
