Blackberry for college?

I am cluelss to this new PDA thing and have searched for help. IO hope you can help me.
My son will be leaving to go to college. He is an athlete. He is interested in a phone that also has a calendar in it to keep track of all his sports schedules as well as something for email. We looked into the Iphone but you have to pay a monthly fee to have access to use it. We are on a tight budget and can't afford the monthly fee. He found a phone called the Blackberry Bold that has internet capabilities if you are in a "hot spot". He said that many areas on campus have places where you can link up.
So I was wondering if it is worth paying the $300 for this phone if it will be a good choice for him in school. I, too, am in a place where I am considering changing from a paper calendar to something with a calendar in it. I have three kids and am always having to go home and check the calendar to see if i am missing a sport date or a practice. I have tried paper planners but they are bulky and I never seem to have them when I need them.
Please help me?!
