Also on a side note, does anyone know if vzw considers messages to and from AIM when ur using it via their application (SMS) on my motorola, if the messages are considered "in"
I think the bigger question for you would be what are your intentions with the phone you will purchase as opposed to which is cheaper. The 7250 is geared more toward the business user who is looking for a strong mobile email device that has decent phone capabilities while I believe the 7130 is marketed more for the cell phone user who would like to have some of the features BlackBerry is famous for, as well. Being that it seems you can get either device for the same price (and that's the cheapest I've seen it for) I would ponder the question from that point of view instead.
