Default 7130e vs 7130c

Please Login to Remove!

Is there any significant difference in the hardware between the Verizon and Cingular models?

thx, David

Yes; one is CDMA (7130e) and uses the EVDO network and one is GSM based (7130c) and uses the EDGE network. Not interchangeable, like the 8700c and 8700g.

the 7130e doesn't use SIM cards, the 7130c does I believe.

All GSM and iDen phones and BBs use SIM cards. I think that has already been established.

That plus the fact that they are different technologies and different chipsets and, oh, never mind.
