Default What's the difference between 8700c and 8700r?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi. Since the new 8700g is coming out, i would like to have a T-Mobile compatible BB. But, is there any significant difference beside the look?
I currently have an unlocked cingular version of 8700. Is there difference in service? I am currently having some problem with my current BB, so i have yet to connect any email and internet service to my BB.

Can someone explain to me what the difference might be beside the look and logo?

I checked the Blackberry website. It listed both BBs to have the exact same features.

P.S. I meant to compare 8700g and 8700c

Internally identical. Same software runs on both. Only difference is the case. The 8700c (unlocked) runs perfectly on T-Mobile's network.

So, why do I see so many people who alraedy have 8700c excited about the T-Mobile 8700g? Does T-Mobile offer any exclusive programs or service?

If it's just the housing, I will rather get a replacement housing than a whole new phone.

I've got a -c and am getting a -g. Should be here tomorrow, but I'll be giving my -c to a friend as I prefer the navy (actually, I prefer black, but what're you gonna do.)

Just out of curiosity, there has been a lot of complaints as to the "feel" of the 8700c, the plastic-y feel. Is the -g the same way? Does it have the same feel as the -c?

Upgrade pricing. Buying an 8700c without contract from Cingular to unlock and use it on TMO is expensive.
