" but the 7100 series is known to have poor voice quality (search these forums and you'll see lots of people complaining, even wanting to write to RIM's CEO)."
My Nextel 7100i is very good for voice quality. I can hear clearly on it, even in DC mode. The people I talk to say I am loud and very clear.
Maybe it's Nextel here or maybe the 7100i, but the above statement is not all inclusive by any means.
Nextel 7100i Borg Approved!
