Default "Buyers Remorse" - 8700g - Curve 8320 ?????

Please Login to Remove!

I work for large corp. I have had 8700g on Tmobile for about a year...very happy with it. I decided to order a new curve to replace it....budget reasons...money to spend this year and maybe not next year...I have not gotten the curve yet, but am starting to feel "buyer's remorse." Will I miss the 8700....any switchers thoughts appreciated. Thanks

I loved my 8700--great sturdy device, but this 8310 is all that the 8700 was, and more.

Love the 8320. Love it. Thinner; lighter. Love the Wifi. No regrets.

Ditto, but replace 8310 with 8300

Default 8700 is the gold standard

8700 is the gold standard of cell phones. Most reliable , stable , easy to use, best key board, best speakerphone.

I simply will not use another bb without a trackwheel or larger keyboard.

lets get a petiotion started to blackberry to make an updated 8700 type phone.

Wow; what a coincidence.. I came to this forum today to make the same post! I absolutely love my 8700g; but I'm starting to get the itch for the 8320.. So noone has any complaints? I'm thinking about purchasing it this week..
