Default 7130e or 8700c that is the question....

Please Login to Remove!

Up until this week i thought that i had made up my mind to get an 8700c on my next trip out to corporate HQ. Then Verizon drops the 7130e and now I am not so sure. I currently have Verizon as my provider and made the unfortunate decision to get a mot v710, which turned out to be junk.

My main need is phone, ability to send receive SMS (for paging) and email. So obviously either unit would work. The smaller screen and combo keyboard on the 7100 series seem like the only possible drawbacks.

Anyone have thoughts on 7100 series performance as a phone? I constantly hear mixed reviews of all blackberry phones, even the 8700c.

Right now I am almost convinced to stay with Verizon and get the 7130e. My manager said I could do either one and getting out of a contract isnt an issue with Verizon as my contract is fullfilled.

Any feedback on the 7100 series would help.

thanks
