Honestly, I don't care that much about the Bluetooth modem thing anyway, I would just like to get the tethered 3G modem working.
Would be nice is MMS worked as well, but its not on my 8707v either.
So my current opinion of the 8707v...
- It does everything my 8700c does (8700c is unlocked and I use my Vodafone SIM in it when I in my London home) only slower. Its slower, interface-wise, than the 8700c. Think original 7100t speeds here and you have it about right.
- I cannot get the stupid 3G modem to worked tethered. Hopefully this is a short term problem. Because without this working there is really no point in it whatsoever.
- The 8707v works in Japan. Ok, one good thing about it.
- Oh wait, one more. I can receive and send e-mail while using the Blackberry's phone. This actually is kind of nice
PS. I fail to see how a laptop connecting to a BB via Bluetooth to dialout through as an IP modem would be any more of a "security" problem than the laptop using it tethered.
