I just got a Samsung i760 with Verizon and am not happy with the phone. I guess I don't like the Windows Mobile 6 interface. I am thinking about moving to a BB 8130 and I have a few questions. I would like to know you experiences. THANKS!

1) How do you like the web browser? If not, can you replace it with another one?
2) Any issues with the 8130 locking up?
3) How do you like the overall interface for the phone? Is it easy to find and call a contact?
4) How long is the battery life?
5) Last one....is it easy to answer an incoming call when you are on another call? What about putting the phone on mute? Is there a button on the phone to do this?

THANKS AGAIN FOR THE HELP!!

ONE MORE....does the phone continue to blink to tell you of missed calls even if it goes into sleep mode? The i760 will NOT!!!
THANKS!

1) I like it, lots of people use Opera Mini. More use the stock browser.
2) what?
3) I like it. From the dial screen or homescreen... just type the name of the contact.
4) Impossible to answer as each user and BB is different according the applications running and in play. I depend on mine for a full days use and recharge each night and top it off during the day.
5) Yes, you will be alerted to the other call, just press ANSWER or IGNORE.
6) Not for missed calls, no. Other alerts for 15 mins then back to normal. Use third party software BBAlerts for additional support for constant alerts.
