Please advice if a 8130 will be a good option for me, I could also get a 8703e but I would like something smaller then my Treo not bigger.
and what about GPS? is the TELUS GPS unlocked? Can I use Google maps and GPS on the device?
also TELUS users, does using gtalk when you have the $15.00 data plan count towards your unlimited Im’ing. Also how does the unlimited web browsing work? Can I use a third party web browser and have it use my unlimited browsing.
any help or advice would be great.
I have the 8130 from Telus and i recommend it. The GPS functions fine and you can use Google Maps and any other GPS application on it. The data plan includes all web browsing and instant messaging, as well as email. You can use any web browser or chat program you like. I use Opera mini and JabberTalk personally.
Feel free to send me a message if you have any specific questions. Hope this helps.
