I currently have a Verizon 6750. It works fine, although the black/white screen and limited memory make it a bit antiquated nowdays. I am planning on upgrading, but would like to venture out of the Verizon fold as I would like to be able to keep communicating with my mostly deaf family when I travel to Europe next month. That basically leaves me with T-mobile or Cingular, I guess... I am a bit leery of the 7100's simply because of the horror stories I've read here about disconnects, etc. But do like the form factor. Anyway, my question is this: How reliable is the 7100g from Cingular? Would I be happier with the 7290 from tmobile? I use the phone occasionally, but the email feature much more often. My wife and daughter both have Sidekick IIs, but I think I'd rather stick with BB. Any comments?

I have the 7290 and a friend opted for the 7100g after coming from the 7290 version with Nextel. He tells me he is much happier with the phone but typing email is more diffcult than he thought it would be.

Default t-mobile service

I have t-mobile service and have been very pleased. I have a 7230. If you don't use the BES, you only pay $19.99 a month for data!

Thanks to you both. My wife brough her sidekick to my office at lunch time today and as soon as she walked into my office, her connection went totally away. Not only no bars, but a big X. I have decided I will stick with Verizon and will probably swap devices with her when I go to Europe. I know it's a big risk as she might not want to give me my blackberry back when I return...but it's the best way. I am going to go with the 7250 from Verizon as they have a 100 off deal right now, so I can pick it up for 199.99. I am going to try and pick it up tonight. I am jazzed. Thanks much.
