Default curve vs 700p

Please Login to Remove!

I'm deciding on whether or not to get a 8330. I have a 700p with sprint right now and it's been acting up like crazy lately..

I'm totally new to the BB world, so I have a few beginner questions.

-Does the BB sync with outlook? (contacts, calendar, etc)
-If yes to the above question, can it sync via bluetooth?
-I know that the phone is GPS enabled, but do I have to pay for the GPS service from sprint to be able to use it with a 3rd party app such as google?
-I read a review on CNET that said the call quality on the other end was a bit sketchy, is this true?

Yes
No
No, Google Maps works fine with Sprint's GPS
No, call quality is on par with other phones

Coming from the doorstop 700p, you will wonder why you stayed with Palm as long as you did.

So as long as I have a data plan I can use google maps with the gps?

I don't have to pay 30 bucks for the gps service?
