Default Advice to buyer

Please Login to Remove!

Hello everyone,

I joined this community today in seek for some advice.

I am doing some research before I purchase the Blackberry 8700g from T-mobile, and I was wondering if people that already have it could let me know what they think of their BB 8700g.

What you like and dislike?

How is the Organizer feature/Tasks feature in BB 8700g?

Thank you in advance.

My opinion - it's the best BlackBerry I've ever used. Superb processor and screen. EDGE is great for surfing. I've been a T-Mobile customer for years, so obviously their network is sufficient for me.

Right now I have the Samsung T809, but I would like something that I will be able to send SMS, AIM, and e-mail easy.

Well this is the device for you I sense!
As long as you can live without camera and mp3's this will do email/SMS *very* well and by all accounts AIM client works good too!

Yeah, the 8700c is the best device for you i'd say, unless you'll miss your camera and mp3 player too much.

Default 8700g is an awesome device

I'm a long time TMobile customer- I've had my share of phones including a Sidekick 1 and 2, and recently a TMobile MDA.

I recently returned by MDA (a piece of crap IMHO) for an 8700g and my God it is a WORLD of difference:

- Email is a snap to set up- I had my gmail, yahoo, and corporate email (my office doesn't have BES) in about 5 minutes.
- Reception is awesome. 10x better reception than my MDA. Only takes a minute or two to pick up reception after I get off the subway. The MDA took up to an hour.
- Interface is intuitive.
- Killer design.

What do you do for there is no Memory slot no camera and no MP3, compared to the MDA?

I just upgraded from another blackberry 7100 series. Had my share of Nokia and smartphones before switching to blackberry world. 8700g is AWESOME, the display is great, speed is excellent, EDGE is the best.. Love it, had cameras on other phones and rarely used them so i am very very happy with my 8700g.
