Default Sprint 8830 ordered...

Please Login to Remove!

Cost was $400 from Sprint. (Actual cost was $550 with a $150 credit... I explained that I could pay an ETF on my existing contract ($200) and then pay $200 for the phone on a new contract... so they decided to reduce paperwork and just give me the phone for $400.)

Having to cancel telenav, as it's not supported on the 8830 yet. However, google maps is supposed to work with the internal GPS, so it'll be a substitute until telenav gets on the ball.

Looking forward to BT DUN, and being able to use the BB left-handed.

Anyone moving from the 8703e to the 8830 have any suggestions for the changeover?

Got mine today (ordered last week while on vacation). Nice little device. I am already so used to the trackball that when I just tried to configure an 8703 for one of my users I kept trying to press the convenience key instead of using the wheel!

Yea, that's a bummer about TeleNav, altho I don't use it that much so will use Google Maps or Beyond411 (which now also have GPS) until TeleNav is available.

One specific question: On my 8703e I have the "today" theme, which I've grown to depend on. Is this theme available for the 8830? I checked the thread having to do with enabling all themes on the devices, but the sprint 8830 isn't listed in the device lists for that thread...

Should have called customer retentions department and put up a stink. I did and got it for $199

I know that "Today" came with my VZW 8830, I can only assume that it is on the Sprint version as well. If not there is a thread here about unlocking other themes.

I went from the 8703 to the 8830, and just used the "Switch Device Wizard", it was very trouble free. The biggest difference has been ringer and vibrate not being as good as the 8703. Everything else has been easy going.

BB Dimension Today Theme is most definitely available as 1 of the 3 supplied themes on the Sprint 8830 ... using it right now, in fact.
