I've been pestering our Cingular rep for this device since 11/1. On Friday, he told me I wouldn't be getting it till sometime next week. You can imagine my surprise when 3 showed up on my desk yesterday morning
The thing "FEELS" great. While it's larger than the 7100, it's lighter than the 7290 or the 7100.
I'm having a small problem re-training myself away from SureType. I'm sure it will resolve itself in a day or two, but I keep finding myself hitting the wrong key.
The phone quaility feels much better .. but that could just be new device happiness and nothing real. I use a jabra250 and the quality is perfect. A few friends of mine used to bust my chops that the audio quality of the 7100+jabra was only so-so. I called them all with the 8700+jabra and they all thought I sounded perfect.
How do you do ringtones on this thing? I heard you could use MP3s, but I haven't experimented at all. Usually I just come here and read some posts and don't need to do any experimentation myself
When are y'all re-opening the labratories and posting results?!
One thing I *really* like is the new interface for addressing new messages. That's a feature that needs to quickly make its way into all versions of all devices. It's a major usability improvement. Nothing was wrong before, per se, but you have to try this new way to see what I mean.
I'm sure there's other stuff I'm forgetting, but I wanted to quickly post.
