Default Nextel i930 VS BB7520

Please Login to Remove!

Has anyone got an idea, what would be the better phone.

I have used my BB for well over 6 months and I'm happy. But I love techie stuff and new phones.

I understand the I930 has a phone version of Outlook.

Also on the nextel site it does talk about over the air sync, but does not say you need a BES either.

it uses nextel desktop assitant I am using it on a i730 right now works very well if I could find a 930 for a reasonable price I would buy it. Nextel is sold out and on back order they are 400 bucks or more on ebay so hard to compare right now

I have used the i930 and hated the ActiveSync. For no reason it randomly stops and I have to manually restart it. Oh wait, there is a reason - Microsoft.....

i got the i930 at 8:00 am the morning it was released. i returned it 13 days later and got the bb 7100i. the 930 would have been sweet 2 yrs ago when it was supposed to come out but really it sucks. play with one for a few hours and you'll see what i mean. blackberry is the only way.

As a "phone" goes - with PIM functionality, Media Player and external media, I thought the 930 was great. As an Email device I found it terrible.
