I am so bummed!
I am considering what to do regarding a replacement. I did love the 8703e(sprint). Has anyone used the 8800? That is choice and I was wondering if it is worth considering?
Thanks for any feedback.

I think the 8800 would be a great upgrade. It has a more recent OS as well as support for external storage. Go and play with one in the store to see if you like it.

I had the 8800 for a while, very nice sturdy device. You will probably have the 8830 with Sprint.

Make sure you call the carrier and report it as you will be liable for all charges until you tell them,. Also log into your BIS account if you use it, and delete the IMEI and PIN to stop email. You could also delete all the email addresses to be sure.

Returned by a Good Samaritan.
Make sure your bb has some form of ID on it.
My name and phone # on the password protected home screen allowed the person who found mine, on a snowshoeing trail in Rocky Mountain Nat'l Park, to contact me.
Happy ending!!

HEH I lost my 7250 as well.
I lost it while shoveling and it got scooped up by the plow.

I called and disabled all outgoin calls
I then had forwardingg enabled to another phone.
I replaced it with the 8703e I got off ebay for $150 so I only had to pay the reactivation of $15 instead of $75 to get an extention of my contract.

I know it sucks but its a good reason to upgrade then.
I didnt like the trackball, it gets dirty!
