Default Should I get a 7105?

Please Login to Remove!

I've been teeter-tottering between a 7105 and a Motorola V360.

I've done my homework on both models and it seems as though the user reviews are shouting "Motorola". I've read a lot of negative feedback about the BB's mic not being up to snuff. I read that it also has poor reception. But I'm willing to give it a try because of the big screen, cool keyboard, and apps.

I'm not sure I understand all this business about the "Enterprise Server." Do I need to hook up whatever this is to check my mail from the phone? And if I don't have that, do I have to sign up for T-mobile's internet service (enter ungodly amount of money here)? I consider myself tech savvy, but I need someone to clarify for me.

Who owns a 7105 and what are some pros and cons about it? Do its pros outwiegh the camera, mp3 player and microSD of the V360? Let me know what you think, people...

If your a person who wants a phone that you can have emails sent directly (Push) to your phone then a blackberry is for you. I consider this phone a business class phone... It has most of the functions all other phones have except the fancy cameras... sd slots and what not.. then again if your at a job site.. or a clients house.. why do you need a camera?

Im not sure if this did any good.. but i love my BB 7105T

I like getting emails to my phone, but do I have to sign up for T-mobile's internet program to be able to get them? If so, it's not worth the extra money to me. Plus, are there additional charges for retrieving each message? These phone companies ding you for everything.

I also noticed that there are a lot of apps for this phone. I probably have to get T-mobile internet to DL and use those too, huh?

I think I've decided against it.

I'd be paying $100 for a 5.9 rated phone that isn't too good on the sound quality, and in order to utilize all the things it can do, I'd have to purchase an extra plan each month that I can't afford. And besides the fact that the 7105 just uses GPRS instead of EDGE, the battery life is lacking, there's no external memory (32 MB?) and BB charges extra money for any kind of support.

Might be a phone for the wealthy, but an average joe like me can't hack it. Sorry.

The Motorola V360 and Blackberry 7105t are two completely different phones. The decision should be real easy.
