The VZW salesperson doesn't seem to know his own products, as this seems like saying that your PC will run faster if it has a 200mb hard-drive, as opposed to having a 80mb drive - that is just storage and has no bearing on speed.

That all said, I have used both and, while I didn't mind the "sure-type" technology, I do a LOT of e-mailing and I prefer the full keyboard of my 7250. The 7130 definately has a nicer screen and the speakerphone is real nice too, but I use a v3c Razr as my phone and I only use the BB as my data device.

Either way, both of these devices are very good -

Thank you, that is what I wanted to hear. Even though I don't do a lot of emailing per se, I do book a fair amount of appointments on the road and the sure type on my 7100T is a pain when logging streets and people's names that are not common spellings. I probably will miss the screen though. Also, do you find any difference in the two devices ability in opening attachments?
