Default 1 day with the T-Mo 8800

Please Login to Remove!

So after my 1st day with the T-Mobile 8800 here are my thoughts...

-- GPS is awesome! It's fast and dead on target!
-- Yes my sides creak!
-- Screen is awesome! (seems smaller and wider than the 8700)????
-- OS is faaaaaaaaast!
-- Addition of media card is awesome
-- Phone level is a bit low for me.... Yes I have it cranked
-- Keyboard is way different from the 8700... BUT after one day I am adjusting nicely...
-- Track ball (like the 8100) rocks over the track wheel...
-- Size and weight.... I have NO idea why some are bagging on it.... it's light and thin.....

Ok, that is all for now.... All in all I am pretty happy with the 8800... Other than my creaking sides.....

I thought I was going deaf.... The phone (what I hear from caller on other end) is a bit weak to me..... It needs to be amped up.... OR I am old, deaf in one ear and can't hear out of the other....

Edit: I forgot to add that it comes with a very nice BB pouch! Considering the 8100 came with nothing, the 8700 came with the dreaded launcher.... I was impressed with the pouch that came in the box....

I think it has slightly more pixels so it looks sharper. Squeeky sides are good - ask your gf!

i don't think so..... I have not used the 8700 in a few months as I had the 8100 but i am adjusting rather nicely to the keyboard on the 8800.... I hacked out a lengthy email today and actually noticed I am getting better on it.... Yes it is different but I think with time we will be fine....

Default Keyboard

I used a 7290 for a year, so I was used to the QWERTY. I had a Pearl starting in November. SOOO glad to be back on QWERTY! Getting faster all the time.

I just got rid of that junk service nextel(7520) and switch to tmo(8800) and loving it.
Does anyone know of an IM app that you can use with the 8800(tmo) that supports AIM?

Sort of indecisive, huh, Lunkhead?

But I am envious of the 8800... still thinking...

I am the same way, being a Tech-Nut has it's advantages. Change is not strange for us. I got mine Tuesday and made the fix on rails with electrical tape and all is well. Tmo sent me a replacement phone yesterday and I have not opened it yet. I think I am going to just take it back to the UPS store and have them return it. I have already re-registered most of my applications to this PIN and just don't think anything out of the box is going to be as good as the unit I have with my repairs.
