View Full Version : Trade in for 8700c or hold out for sync on 8125

It was a toss up between the BB 8700c and Cingular 8125 and I went with the 8125, not knowing it cannot sync with my MAC (DOH!)...although I know the sync software is on the way.

Question: I am under the 30 day trade in and wonder if I should switch or hold out for the sync software? I do like the 8125.

I use the device mainly for texting,and as a PDA, not as much as a cellphone. If I do trade in, I most likely won't get the BB internet connect (not at $45 a month.) Right now I have an "unlimited data plan" on the 8125. Although I am unclear what it really gives me (it is not the internet plan)

Oh...one more thing...
I am not a techie and do not understand the whole wi-fi thing my 8125 has and the BB does not. HELP!!

Thanks

1st, BB's do sync w/mac's.. well almost eveything with MacBerry software.
2nd, I pay $19.99 for unlimited data my 8700g w/TMO
3rd, windows mobile 5.0 is crash happy, my 8700g hasn't even thought about crashing/freezing.
So to me it's an easy choice. Good luck. dp

I have used both. Had the 8700, then the 8125, then back to the 8700. The 8125 is cool and great PDA (by the way, I don't know this for a fact, but PocketMac should allow you to sync with the Mac, i think). However, too many crashes and screen freezes with the 8125. Just like daleepark said, the 8700 just keeps on working flawlessly. Plus, it is entirely one handed operated. I can drive, reply to emails, get all around my BB with one hand. Really hard to do with the 8125. Wish it wasn't so because I sure did like the ability to send emails from multiple email addresses. Once Cingular gets their act together, we can do that on the 8700c's. Soon I hope.

I have not had any problems with the 8125 crashing yet. When does that typically start?
Thanks!
