Hey there all,
I'm a recent convertee to the realm of blackberries. I've been fighting getting a blackberry for a very long time. With that said I'm very happy with my blackberry 8700c. I got it two days ago. it's amazing. I've been a diehard Windows mobile smarthphone user since the motorola mpx200. always loved the windows mobile phone. I've also used the treo 650. it seemed to me at the time the best phones. about 4 months ago I went from treo 650 to the new Wm 5.0 cingular 8125(HTC Wizard). I was tired of the treo constantly crashing and having to reload my software all the time. The phone would crash in the middle of phone calls, but I loved the push email (chatter email/fastmail combo). So i needed another phone that had the push email capabilities (and at the time I wasn't going to get a blackberry). So i purchased the cingular 8125. it crashed the first day. had to hard reset. I then loaded up the rom from the QTek 9100 that had push email enabled(couldn't wait for cingular to get off their ass and update the rom). Everything went smooth and i was happy for about a month. Then the crashing started. it was doing it about 2-3 times a week and would reboot during long phone calls. ugghh..so i bit the bullet and purchased the 8700c off of ebay last week. i received it on monday and got everything set up. it was a breeze. I've only had it a couple of days, but from what I've seen so far it totally blows the Cingular 8125 away in stability and email functions. I rarely used the multimedia functions( movies, mp3) of the 8125, thats what my ipod is for.
Thank you phone gods for such a great phone. I love you blackberry. haha
