Long live my wonderful reliable 7100t! I prefer it anyway. Sure the reception is a bit iffy. Sure the web is a bit slow. But on every other count, the 7100t is the winner.
Pros for the 7100t:
Bigger keys (I love Suretype)
SMS delivery receipts (hard to live without when you are used to having them)
Less choppy sound
Bluetooth really works in my car
Cuter looking IMHO
Better sounding ringtones
We had the same issue... but the person who had the problem, said he connected it to AC power and left it for a bit (an hour or so) after it was originally hour glassing for about 2 hours and said when he came back to it that it was fine again and prompting for a new device password.
I personally wiped my 8700 and saw no issue with it coming back and then re EA'ing it...
