I had the same issue. The data support tech i talked to stated that its a known issue and they are working on how to fix it. But he did also said its a very minimal amount units. But he did recommend changing the unit out since it was within the 15 day window. Since I traded it in for a new one... no issues

Right now I have the 8700 and the 7130 and both are within the return window. The 8700's keyboard is annoyingly small, but the 7130 seems to be buggy. I drop out of EVDO all the time, while my VZW E815 has two bars of EVDO. I don't know what gives. I also had it reboot on it's own once so far in two days. On the otherhand, BB Messenger installed and worked, and it doesn't on the 8700. The phone and speakerphone work great. Also, the bettery icon doesn't have a bottom, it looks like an open bottomed battery-is it like that on all of them?

I do not think the 7130 is causing the issues; rather, the interface with the towers. It seems the Veriozn has fixed some of the network issues in some areas, at least where I am (Rockland County, NY and out to Mid and Southern PA).

Cool to see other NYers. I'm planning on getting this phone to replace my 7250 that has been good but a bit slow. Has anyone used it as a modem yet? I want to use this in my car with my carputer to surf the web. Any thoughts?

This is the kind of info we need to determine if it's a problem effecting multiple people (units) vs just the way EVDO works in a specific area.

The Verizon theme is the cause and it's like that for everyone.

Paisan, i'm not sure how well this will work for you. "surfing" will be more like crawling. IE: it takes a good 10 + seconds to load webpages. About 30 for CNN.

Arg, did the whole *22899 twice yesterday.

Woke up this morning to a big fat DATA CONNECTION REFUSED and 0 bars. Looked at my roomates phone, he had full bars and 1X.

In my office - the condition remains the same. My coworkers Verizon Samsung phone has full bars.

On hold with Verizon now.....

If you upgrade to EVDO you will find that will serve your purpose rather than going through the cost of getting a new phone. EVDO will give you the speeds you need or want, now on the other hand if what you want is a new toy cause you are tired of the old one, that is a horse of a different color.

I'm interested in the response, as I'm sure others here are too. Please let us know the feedback you get from Verizon.

Ok, two hangups (they hung up on me) and one hour later, heres what I got:

Problems: 1) Changing between EVDO and 1x, 2) Signal changing from 0 to 5, etc.

Step 1. Dial ##000000
make sure mobile directory # = your number
IMSI_S = your number
SIP User Id = your number @ vzw3g.com

SIP Password = verizon
* this was not there, I had to put this in.

Save and *22899 again.

I don't think that this worked - I'm still fluctuating between 0 and 5 bars and currently am on 1x. ARg!

Thinking about returning and either 1) getting a new one or 2) changing to a 8700c (they are essentially the same price!!)

Can anybody verify that a replacement unit will fix the problem?

Default Still having problems downtown

I did the *22899 update yesterday and still have issues dropping to 1X. I usually have 1 or 2 bars of signal (between -107 and -94 dBm).

If I were you I would read through all the 8700 threads here because in my opinion youd be jumbping from the fat into the fire.

Thanks for the note kontiki, i have been reading many of the threads on the 8700 and the main problems I have read about is dust..? People seem to be fairly satisified with it.

How does one get EVDO on the 7750?

Noticing this is pretty NY-rich on this thread. Just in case anyone else is permantly DCR, try calling up service. They realized something wasn't clicked "on" (whatever) and now I've got 1xev going strong.

I happen to be testing them both out now. My regular BB is the 7100i. I have all the EV problems as everyone else does (EV to 1X to 1x, back to EV). I'm in Rockland County, NY. Data support wants me to monitor and report back.
The 8700 is nice, I love the backlight, but look at it's side and you can see right in. With my finger nail I can open it up pretty good. That's gotta be a problem waiting to happen. Great EDGE signal but almost all software i've tried to load has failed. Only Pocket Day works as it should.
Everything works on my 7100i. I think I'm gonna return the other two and wait until they perfect them unless either company announces a fix in the works. If Cingular said "keep it until the new sealed ones are out and then swap" then I would keep the 8700. If VZW would say they're hard at work on this and please be patient, that would work. The silence seems to say "too bad".
