I switched back to a 7250 and no more troubles, I luv the 7250, rock solid.
Verizon's EVDO works great (for me & 7250).
When I'm in rural parts of Jersey I'll loose EVDO and switch to 1X and the 7250 handles it without any problems and it will switch back to EVDO effortlessly.
I won't be upgrading, I'll wait, plus I use the bb outside alot so the old style screen on the 7250 works good even in the sunlight where as the 7130 was harder to read in direct sunlight.
btw, I was in a frantic rush this week and accidently knocked my 7250 about 5 foot to the concrete,it went flying with alot of force, and it now has a big chip on the paint but still works.
