Default Anyone with a RED Sprint 8130?

Please Login to Remove!

Just ordered mine today and was given the choice between red or black (but they are all on backorder ). I didn't see an option for red anywhere on Sprint's or even RIM's website.

I chose red...anyone else have a red one?

You Sprint Pearl owners need to call customer service and tell them you need the OS made available for download so you can have full access to your phones via the BB Desktop Manager...you guys got the newest version 8130 OS (4.30.0.71) and the rest of us would love to get a look at it!

Red or Black? If I were you I would be worried that they ordered you a Centro instead! The Sprint 8130 is only available in "burgundy" or something along those lines...it is not red or black!

since they fired the pervious sprint spokesperson (the guy in the trenchcoat with an erie voice), they really need to find a new one. I think you should apply, your line is dead on!

When was the last time any of you bagging on Sprint were on Sprint. I would suggest to you that Sprint has made some really good changes in their network, customer care and just about everywhere else. It is a free country though, God Bless America!

Well, if you looked to the left of my posts you'd see I have Sprint service, and have had them for over 2 years (on my current go-around with them).

The network is not an issue with me, though it'd be nice if they worked inside my house with any reliability. But I am not naive, so I know that every carrier will have problem areas.

As for Sprint's customer service...I would say it is not improved at all. I wouldn't say it is worse, but I have yet to see any improvements on that front.

The only reason I am still with Sprint is their pricing...I get more for my money from them than I would with anyone else.

I think you are getting a centro and no BB. They don't offer Red or Black for sprint

I received confirmation today that there is, indeed, no red Sprint 8130. When it arrives, mine will be amethyst.

Kinda bummer, but I'm still getting one, so that's ok.

I saw it in the store a few days ago and it didn't look amethyst at all...not to me atleast. It looked more like a greyish black. It looked really nice.

Default It is a dark purple

I received mine yesterday. If you look close it is a dark purple.....I would call it a charcoal.

I've never seen dark purple charcoal.

Did RIM hire Andy Warhol?
