    Which Verizon BB for my mom?

    Hey!

    I'm a Storm user, but I think my mom would do better with a classic keyboard. She's a Realtor, and likes the idea of visual voicemail. What is everyone's opinion of what BB would be best for her?
    Any of the BB's in the "waiting room" rumored for Verizon?
    I guess right now, here choices are Curve or Tour.
    Gimme your thoughts!!!:feedback:

    If it narrows down to right now and the curve and the tour I would suggest the tour for her not only is it a solid and reliable phone, but it is a improvement over the current curve.

    I am going to agree with both bbc and bryan the tour, but if you feel that she would like something a lil simpler you may want to hold of for the new vzw curver, but that could be a while

    Got that right!!
    Mom's cool, but don't know if she'll have the patience to learn the keyboard. She already knows how the regular ones work.

    What's youmail and visual voicemail for youmail?? Something I haven't heard of! Is it free?!

    yes it's free and very nice. youmail has it's own free visual voicemail app but i prefer VyMail but i believe it's storm only.

    I agree with crackman. Tour all the way. I am a Storm user myself but I feel that the Storm is better for people with a more technical inclination that don't mind messing around with the device to get peak performance. She probably just wants a device that just works.

    Thanks everyone. I think she has decided on the Tour. And double thanks for the visual voicemail suggestions!
