IMHO, If you like the 8700 just get another one !! I have experimented w alot of models up to the Storm(not the 8900/Bold) and personally I really like the 8700/8703e ! I looked around tried all Verizon had to offer I bought a new 8703e. I guess for me it just has a certain"feel" that is better than the other models. I would be interested to hear if anyone else shares my opinion !
