Hey all - just found this site and the info is AWESOME!
I have a legacy RIM 850, only data BB and have used it constantly for past two years. I travel frequently all over country, mostly major cities for work and am now really looking into upgrading to a new 2005 BB. I have several co-workers using 7100t but have been on several calls with them where they sound VERY staticky and I wonder if that is the norm?
Also - I am a current Verizon customer and would be inclined to switch as long as my service would be somewhat comprable -I know that is another debate, but I would be comfortable switching to Cingular I believe since very strong here in Houston and seems to be where I travel - but used to CDMA and hear mixed about GSM. Feedback here would be helpful too.
So - question is - for a great new BB with many new features, but also a very workable phone for business purposes more than personal (meaning using it for conversations mostly) - go with the 7100g or would I find that 7290 might be better for me? Better for phone, just larger form factor, etc - any benefits to it?
