Ok so I finally got the 8703e and give it a 9.5 out of 10. I already went thru the t-mobile/cingular/Verizon trials and settled on Verizon because i finally decided that ROCK SOLID phoneservice is worth more than customer service or "cool" phones.
Now that the 8703e is out i am almost 100% satisfied! Although i must say i am more satisfied now than ever. Only complaint is that i am coming from a Motorola Q and the only nice plus about it that i miss is the center mounted thumbpad that allows me to navigate up/down right/left. I know that the perfect phone now would be an 8703e with the "pearl" like key on a full QWERTY device! Any one care to comment? Just a thought, would like to hear comments. Thanks in advance.........
