I guess my main concern is, is the 7130e pretty much the exact same thing as the 7100i except with a much faster internet browser and the ability to use the phone for a modem?? Thanks
Anyone with personal experience with the 2 please share your likes/dislikes.
I made the same switch about a month ago. Very impressed with the 7130e so far. Have not had a single issue with it. I can give you my short pro/cons list for switching.
Pros: EVDO much faster once a page has started to load. Seems to take little bit for that to start though.
The case seems to be a bit tougher to me.
Vastly better coverage in the Dallas/Fort Worth area then Nextel provides
Cons: No PTT ( I now carry 2 phones)
I keep everything in Outlook so switching devices with info was a breeze.
Only had a couple of third party apps that I just re-installed with the activation codes from those companies. Total set-up for the switch was about 20 mins.
