Default 7100T owner, what's next?

Please Login to Remove!


I'm a 7100T owner with TMobile service. I've had the 7100T for about a year and half and am getting ready for my next phone. I'd like to stay w/ TMobile and Blackberry but am open to other combinations for the right fit. I'd like something with a sleek form factor but definetly faster internet downloads than my 7100T. I also would like something with more software available for it - or at least easier to load. So I guess my questions are:

1) Has anyone tried any of the non-blackberry phones, Moto Q, TMobile MDA?
2) Does anyone know of any upcoming BB releases for TMobile?

1) I have used the 7100t and just recently got the 7105t. I like this one as it seems faster while browsing than my 7100t was. It's also the same form factor as the 7100t.

2) The newest release was the 8700g with EDGE speeds but if you want to keep the same form factor as the 7100t, I'd wait for the upcoming 7130, or get the 7105t which has been out for about 7 months now. I have heard that the 7130 will have EDGE speeds also.

3) There are more software downloads available through such places as, and some others I can't think of right now. There are now more over the air downloads for the BlackBerry with the upgraded 4.1 OS.

4) I have used a combination of Windows Mobile devices, Sidekicks and regular phones and for me the best device has been the BlackBerry platform. It's been much more stable than the others.

Hope this helps and good luck.

When i was looking at my 7105t i looked at the SDA and the MDA. The SDA has a nice concept to it but the keypad just plain sucks. It is wayyyy to small for my taste. the MDA also has a great concept. The keypad though is a bit sticky and bluky in my opinion. And since you have to slide out your screen to access it i consider it a drawback. If I were you I would either look at the 7105t or I know ive read rumors somewhere of t-mobile getting a new blackberry sometime later this year. That could always be worth the wait.
