Default 8700c voice quality.

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,

We have a few Blackberry 8700c units at work, the voice quality on these seem to be horrible. I know it's not the provider and must be the devices. We want to switch them out for something with better voice quality, what model blackberry's have better voice quality that will work on cingular.. Also is it a big pain to go away from the side scroll wheel for email use?

It is not the model, it may just be those individual units. I have used an 8700c and been on the "receiving" end of a 8700c calling me, and never had problems.

But if you are upgrading, look at the 8800 or 8300, both on ATT

Honestly, it's such a subjective issue that's its hard to say. It would be nice to have some truly useful metrics to compare devices. All we have to go on is what one person considers "good" voice quality versus another's.

I've never considered the 8700c to have poor voice quality but its mic does seem to pick up a lot of background noise.
