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".
