Default unlocked 8700g vs. unlocked 8700c

Other than the physical differences, is there any difference in using an unlocked 8700c on the t-mobile network vs. using an 8700g?

I don't think so. Internally they are identical.

The only think I can think of is the 8700g can use the OZ Messenger program, and the 8700c can not. It's not that great of a program in my opinion, so you're basically back to cosmetics. I use a 8700c unlocked on T-Mobile on that's the only thing I have noticed.

Even with the OZ Messenger client loaded? What about with the 8700g handheld software? I guess it's probably not worth the hassle of finding out...

Im my experience they've been the same except for cosmetics.
