No. It asks if you want to exit the phone screen and return to the main menu but it keeps the call connected.

Has anyone else with a 7130 keep getting the "Do you want to run the tutorial" message once or twice a day?

I said "yes" the first time it popped up, then exited out, and haven't seen it since.

Can a 7130e receive a call while its receiving email (or browsing the web, etc.)?

I have a Treo 600 on Verizon, and calls go straight to voicemail when it's doing a "wireless sync" (which is a lot). I can't find anything in the 7130e documention which answers the question. I don't really care if the data connection is disrupted or not, just that the phone rings and I stop missing calls! I'm pretty much sold on the 7130e, but this would be a clincher. Thanks for all the first impressions.

Alright, had the afternoon to monkey around with the phone. Its got a great screen and almost identical to my 7100t (and every other blackberry i'm guessing) in terms of functionality. Haven't tried out the speaker phone yet. Made a couple calls to some friends - they noted that I sounded much clearer than on my 7100t. So thats a good note.

One thing that I'm still a little unsure about is the whole EVDO hype. I remain passively impressed with the speed of the browser. It seems to be a bit faster then GPRS was on my 7100T, but not so much as to knock my socks off. It takes a good 20 secs to load ebay, which was a hair faster then the time it took the 7100t to do the same.

Anybody else sharing the same thoughts?

I posted this very question to howardforums, and here's the thread.

The answer is that if it's connecting via EVDO, then this is no longer a problem, but over the regular 1X network, it will behave the same way.

I just found similar comments that this is true for other EV-DO phones as well. That's good news, thanks.

When using the verizon theme does your battery indicator get cut off and there is no banner saying verizon wireless as in the picture. It as if they mad the date to big. Any idea?

Yep, mine was the same way. I hated the default theme anyway and changed it to one of the other themes. But yes, I distinctly remember the battery indicator being cut off.

Default 7130e thoughts

I just got one from my work (yay!) and it is awesome.

The screen is awesome, the battery life is pretty good, and it is pretty fast. I has not crashed on me. I am using BES through my company. I have VZW.

I love this phone. I would buy one if I hadn't gotten it free through work.

My only complaint is that the scroll wheel and "escape" button are a little tight and my hand hurts when i use them a lot, but it could be worse and they could be loose and flaky and nonresponsive, so I should really stop complaining.

I have had mine about a month now from VZW. Pretty pleased with it overall. After working out some initial kinks (i.e. forgot to change a setting in my account that gave me a "data connection refused"), it has been working great. I don't have the reboot problems that others have noted on the bluetooth. I use an HS850. I have it in a verizon leather holster that has a flap on top. Protects it pretty well. After about 50 or so drops with my 7750, I was concerned about the durability of this one. Definitely feels less rugged. As for the thumbwheel, I like the feel of it, but the stiffness took some getting used to.

One think I don't like is the lack of a cradle. I liked being able to just drop it in to charge, but it looks like cradles are trending toward a thing of the past.

The part I like the most is that it is more the size of a phone. My old one was way too big and caught on everything from airline seats to car seats, etc. I can't tell you how many times I almost lost it because it had hooked on something. much of that is the holder and not the BB, but it was bulky.

Loving my 7130e!

Default Love the Crack Berry

I have been using a 7130e w/Verizon for about 1 month now - AND I LOVE IT! There are so many cool things that you can load on - Messenger / Google Maps / Berry411 / EReaders for Books, and so on.

When it comes to ringtones - I bought a program called MiniRingTone (can't remember the exact name - don't use it here at work). You take your own mp3 files / edit the section you want / automatically upload them to the manufacturer's server under your own login and then download them via BB browser - easy to get custom ring tones -

7130e on Bell Mobility in Canada -rocket speed combined with SureType is a winning combo.

Do you remember what you changed to get rid of the "data connection refused"?

I seem to get those a lot. I'm trying to upgrade to the latest firmware to see if that helps but right now I have to physically remove the battery and replace it to get those to go away.

Upgrading to the new OS should help with the datta refused issue. It took care of it for me.
