Question 8320 v. 8830?

Please Login to Remove!

I have the 8320 as my personal phone. Work got a few 8830's, and i may get issued one. What do you guys see as the pros and cons of using one over the other, assuming I will have to carry a second phone either way? I don't think carrying 2 BBs is reasonable. My 8320 is T Mobile, and work uses Alltel. I currently have an LG flip phone from them.

Thanks!

BTW, should I have posted this in another forum?

Should I also post this in the 8800 forum and the compare threads?

Just depends. Your 8320 has wifi and a camera. The 8830 has GPS but no wifi or camera. Slightly different form factor (keyboard) but basically the same beyond that.

Also, you may not want to use your personal device (the 8320) for work. If you have a BES they will be able to see any information on the BlackBerry, and it may be subject to certain restrictions from the IT policy.

That's true, and some of those policies are not removeable from the device. They are there to stay.

Interesting thought on the BES. Actually I have not been using my curve with work's BES, I just forward my work e-mail to a comcast e-mail account I have. If I start using a company BB, they get to read ALL my e-mail?

Do they also have access to SMS and MMS? Google Talk? Call Logs? BlackBerry Email? I also thought if you used the BlackBerry Browser that did not go through the corporate network.

I know there are some BES Admins here who can answer this?

Thanks in advance.

Yes, they have access to all data, including call logs. As far as sms,mms, I'm not sure. Also "Blackberry Browser" is the browser that goes through the BES. Internet Browser is the carrier's browser. However, they both go through the BES. When I use either browser my corp IP comes up with each.
