So I'm on Sprint now. Superb coverage in my area, WAY cheaper data plans vs. AT&T. I get a decent discount with Sprint so the move was a simple decision. Plus I love the size of the Curve series over the Bold, in spite of the Bold's truly superior keyboard.
I see that the 8350i offers push-to-talk where the 8330 does not. I don't use ptt so that's not a factor.
The 8330 has the 3.5 mm headphone jack vs. the 2.5 mm one on the 8350i. That's a factor for me, but a small one.
Slightly better battery life for the 8330 and tethering (if you pay for it).
I like the look of the 8350i better than the 8330 but the 8350i is iDen only where the 8330 is the regular Sprint network. How big a difference in coverage am I likely to see in northern NJ and NYC? Will this be a big deal?
I also like the fact that the 8350i has OS 4.6 while the 8330 is still on 4.5
Recommendations? I'm leaning toward the 8330 but if anyone has real world experience with both models I'd love to hear what you have to say.
