Thanks for the welcome. I will be ordering the Sprint version on Monday
I needed an account with Tmo to use for data overseas...was a perfect excuse to give the 8700 and 8100 a try. I have my company on Sprint currently so I will carry the 8703 everyday and keep the Tmo one for travel. I am headed to Italy, Dubai and Saudi Arabia in a couple of weeks and will report back on how Tmo unit fares in those countries.
