New? Lurking? April 2006? 65 posts?

You don't see a difference in speed, screen, browser, etc., from the 7130 and 8820?

1. WiFi is faster. Maybe you need to tweak your settings.
2. Sure you can, several threads here with that info.
3. Nope, gotta buy one. I did. No memory card, no videos, mp3s, etc.
4. Must be TeleNav. The best and worth it. Others like Nav4All and AmazeGPS a lot.
5. yep

no flash.

There's an entire thread here on great SD card deals. ECost.com has good deals.

thanks for the reply...


yea my interent was honestly just as fast...perhaps its a little faster...but it is still only edge...so not sure why it would be faster....

the wifi...perhaps seems faster....ill tweak with my settings a bit more...i did barely get the phone.

oh and i meant newest member to 8800 series : )

How did you switch from the 7130 to the 8320?

Read this, just in case it helps:
