Cool 8300 or 8800

Please Login to Remove!

I have AT&T as a carrier. I am eligible for an upgrade but am torn between the 8310 (I think this is correct for ATT) or the 8830 (Again ATT?). I travel quite a bit but usually get get NeverLost when I rent a car. The camera feature is nice on the 8310 and I have a GPS puck from use with my Dell AximX50V. I need voice dial if possible. I need your experience opinions on this. Thanks in advance.

AT&T does not have the 8830. AT&T has the 8100, 8310 and 8820.

Both the 8310 and 8820 are current models. Both have GPS built in.
8310 has a camera. 8820 has WiFi.

Personally, I'd go with the 8310 unless you have a need for WiFi.

Thanks for the reply. I went to the 8800 forum and found almost the same question. The response was about the same.

Save yourself the hassle of carrying the puck.... Go with the 8310, its also got a fairly decent dig camera!

8300 has essentially been discontinued by AT&T and replaced by the 8310.

There is no 8330 from T-Mobile, or any other carrier. You're thinking of the 8320.

Hopefully their refurbs are good. I just bought an 8300 from AT&T's web site for $4.99.

If you plan to use it as a phone, get the Curve.
