Three weeks ago I purchased a 7100i and switched from Sprint to Nextel. I picked the 7100i for the features listed on the Nextel site.
Specifically on the this link.
Under Full Feature List is shows that the 7100i supports the following features...both of these are completely false, these are direct quotes.
Talk hands-free with a wireless earpiece or transmit data wireless from a Bluetooth®-Enabled device (up to 30 feet).
Advanced User Interface
Phone use is quick and easy with one-touch shortcuts to phone features, icon-driven menu and 4-way navigation with OK selection key.
After learning more about my phone and trying to get it to pair with my Palm Lifedrive for about a week of trial and error and finding the user interface a little awkward....I went back to double check the specifications on this phone. I am completely unhappy with Bluetooth Support as well as the interface, since it is not what Nextel advertises. There is NO 4 way navigation with OK selection key. I really miss this feature, I have been a treo user for several years...and this experience is not what I was expecting.
What should I do? Will the bluetooth data access be added in the future? Should I try to get Nextel to trade my 7100i for a phone that does
have the features I need? I am 4 days past my 14 day return period.
