1. Has anyone done battery tests on the 8703e? Does the CDMA version have less batter life than the GSM 8700g?
2. How is the 8700e Bluetooth? Verizon has a tendency to cripple BT on their phones. Is this true of the 8700e?
3. Any other advantages/disadvantages of one over the other? Not counting EVDO, as its isn't available in my area.
Thanks in advance.
If coverage is the same and there is no evdo then get tmo version and save some $$. RIM has historically restricted btooth on their devices for security until the 8100 so VZW didn't need to bother so the profiles are the same. Do you have EDGE in your area?
