I have the 8830 with Sprint, and like it just fine. Jive Talk works fine on it, and I suspect it does on VZ as well.

I like my 8830. Coming from an env the biggest adjustment will be the keyboard is much narrower. I also use JiveTalk on mine and it works great, no complaints here.

Of course. The input about the 8830 might be different on the 8100, Treo or HTC fori. Asking on the 88xx area is predictable,,,

I got mine a week ago after thinking for a loooong time. No regrets. LOVE it!
I have to say I first wanted to get the Curve, my friend has and is great, but, I think the 8830 does its job very well, since I dont need a camera. Good luck on your choice!
