I'd definitely go with the 8700! While I vastly prefer T-Mo service (and prices, last time I checked) to Cingular, I have to admit that I think the 8700c is nicer than the 8700g. That's purely cosmetic though, and as such, is not a very good reason to make the choice.

Depends what you are wanting it for.

Email with phone = 8700
Phone with email = 71xx

As much as I love the 8700, I would not go with T-Mobile unless I could verify that I could get the coverage I need. Otherwise like the others have stated the 7130 appears to just be smaller form factor of the 8700 without a QWERTY keyboard.

If TMO or VZW appeals more to you, then buy based on carrier. If you'd rather havea smaller phone, get the 7130. If you'd rather have a QWERTY keyboard, get the 8700g.

Default 7130c from Cingular

Go check out the 7130c from Cingular, EDGE, phone form factor and cheaper data plan ($29 for BIS), it rocks!



Cheers.

8700 and 7130 are virtually the same phone. 8700 has a bit larger screen and qwerty keyboard, 7130 has a better phone shape. Personally, I prefer the suretype to qwerty, but i have friends who are just the opposite. Try them both and pick the one you like. I don't think you'll be disappointed with either choice. Good luck!

You also need to consider the service and where you plan to use it. My guess is, Verizon has better coverage. T-Mo is most likely cheaper. If you plan to travel outside the US (other than the Far East) T-Mo or Cingular would be better.
