I did it - I tossed my 7100g in the trash (well, not literally.. tossed it on ebay actually)... and got a 8700c.
I love it. Great sound... I can finally have callers hear me and not complain.
The screen is amazing too.
My question now is - given that BBs are supposedly "business use" in nature, and it seems BB shys away from anything entertainment oriented such as mp3 players, or built in cameras.... why is it that they have such ..hmm...how should I put this... "consumer" type ringtones?
I want a few basic ringtones that sound normal - just normal ringers...
I dont want to have any funky music play when it rings, or some alien sounding phazer noise... but it seems the bundled ringtones are just that - "consumerish".
Why doesnt BB include more professional/business oriented tones?
I have searched this forum for ringtone sources, and found many...the problem is they are all those musicial tones... I dont want Eminem's newest MP3 as my tone. Does anyone know of a source for normal tones?
Secondly, I ordered a screen guard from www.theinvisibleshield.com
after reading how great they are in other threads here. I'd also like a metal case for the unit, but it seems like no one makes one yet... does anyone know of any in production at this point? I contacted InnoPocket, and they are not sure when they will have one available.
For those thinking of an 8700C... go for it... its one great unit!
