8310 (AT&T) or 8320 (T-Mobile) Help?
 
Can I just get some thought about which phone is an over all better phone. I use AT&T as my carrier, I have both the 8310 and the 8320 unlocked. Ive heard from some people that the 8320 will not work as well on the AT&T network, is that true? and if I use the 8320 should I install the AT&T software on the phone or keep the TMO software on the phone.

I understand that the 8310 has GPS and the 8320 has wifi, but can the wifi be used with the AT&T software and can someone say one phone is over all a better ph or is both just the same with those two differences?

Any thoughts would be great.

Thanks,

They are the same device short of the differences between having wifi or having GPS.

Unlocking them and using them on another network will work but some features may not. The 8320 has wifi and UMA on TMobile. On AT&T the wifi will work but you will not get UMA. The 8310 may not give you an Internet Browser on TMobile....

There are several threads that cover this exact topic. Give a search and read through the threads. They have a lot of good information, most of which is first hand user review of the devices.

8310 :-)
 
I had a similar issue and after reading several hours of this site and others, I decided to go with the 8310 and have had no regrets. Now my wife and kids may think different since my curve is now part of the family :-)

The 8310 doesn't have real GPS. It uses a feature called Telenav and you can get that on the 8320 also. I use Google maps because its free. (Telenav is a monthly fee).

This is untrue. The 8310 DOES have real GPS (has a receiver in it that picks up satellite signal to pinpoint location.) The TeleNav application can use that signal to provide turn by turn directions. You can also use GPS with Google Maps and BBMaps, as well as a collection of others.

The 8320 does NOT have GPS. I use a separate bluetooth GPS receiver with my 8320 and it works with TeleNav and the other free GPS applications.

Regardless of the method of receiving the GPS signal, it is REAL GPS.
