I am just curious, if the 7250 is indeed EV-DO ready just a matter of software upgrade, for what reason would verizon refuse to turn it on. I am sure that they will indeed charge more for the service, and after all it is a matter of economics. I do not see Verizon wasting away an opportunity to make additional money. Yes granted that enough people would switch over to the 7130e for the EV-DO, and granted that they could simply release that one with EV-DO turned on first. But I imagine that once the hoopla of the new one dies down and they realize that there still are a lot of customers that did not want to switch their full keyboard Berries for the Mickey Mouse keyboard on the 7130, that realizing the loss of revenue, will drive them to turn it on. Not to say that just a matter of staying competetive would dictate for them to do so. Just my .025 cents worth.
