    Reasons I switched to the Sprint 8830

    Advertisement



    Just a few reasons I am happy that I switched to the 8830...

    Easy to use left or right handed.
    Email ringtones to the BB, no need to upload them to the web first.
    Ability to transfer anything using DM if I want to.
    Built in spell checker that allows spell checking ANY text.
    Sending files using BBM.
    When sending messages using GMAIL app sent messages appear on my BB in messages.
    Having BBM conversations in messages.
    Two different colors in calendar.
    Abilitiy to create folders and move all apps and icons into the folders.
    Plays mp4 videos, I have many so I dont have to convert them.
    Ability to have a 4gb micro card, omg so much stuff on there.
    Picture caller id.
    Very clear and loud speaker phone.
    Very clear and loud stock ringtones.
    High speed gps data transfer, telenav and BB Maps are super fast.
    BBM can view pic before saving.
    Tethers with laptop, vista, connection manager super easy.
    Cool looking smileys.
    Can put in any sim card without showing incompatible, cant use the network but can manage sim and upload numbers. Currenty I have an iDEN sim in there, just to sync with my other phone.

    Im sure I can add many more things, but this is just a sample of what you can look forward to.

    Not sure about the LOUD ringtones... i've missed many calls. GPS transfer doesn't matter to me because I should be able to use the GPS that is built into the phone.

    You must have the Sprint 8830 becuase i've had terrible luck with the Verizon 8830.

    Theres a constant memory leak that causes the phone to lose all messages and call logs a few times a week. Very annoying.

    Also theres a glitch when receiving call and making them at the same time, requires a battery pull....

    Of course, whenever I call, its the first verizon has ever heard and must be an isolated incident.

    Oh yeah, and you can't receive MMS on Verizon. Apparently phones that have a camera are the only ones that can receive pix.

    ...or use Mass Storage Mode or even Media Manager.

    I have the VZW 8830 and have had absolutley no problems what-so-ever! No battery pulls, no loss of call logs etc.

    It's a hot device and I can't be more happier with my new BB!!!

    Re: Reasons I switched to the Sprint 8830

    I changed the title, these are the reasons I have switched to the 8830, not reasons others should switch, my personal opinon.

    There are many more features that you can do from this BB that I have not listed, I am either not interested in them, or have had them on previous BB's that Im used to.

    Thanks.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~sorry for the thread hijack, but how do you get to smileys on a Sprint 8830 or do they not exist on the Sprint version?

    I would switch to Sprint and get this device, but I am a Retired employee for one Sprints main office in North Carolina, and if I switch I will loose my EMP plan Maybe some other time...

    dyou say that the 8830 tethers with vista, but have you actually done it? i just got mine and after loads of trouble and 3 hours on tech support phone, they tell me that it is not guaranteed to work as a modem and in fact they have major issues with vista using the 8830 as a tethered modem. anyone else?
