    I see a few features that conflict with what our RIM rep told us. Only time will tell. I was assured this BB would have REVA not REV0.

    It's nice that the 8830 is an unlocked sprint bb with the sim card. My dad is a sprint customer and has been admiring my bb for quite some time, but he would never get one because in most of the countries he travels too. If your in Italy and you want to use their service you have to purchase one of those prepaid sim cards. Regardless, I'm excited about the release.

    Cards "up to 128MB" ??? Is this a mis-print? Surely 2GB cards are supported???

    what does this mean "GPS location-based services" is it a true GPS like the one on the 8800?

    All Sprint-Nextel devices utilize the GPS and allow you to use it for different apps.

    I also was hoping for BT DUN on this phone as I was use to using when I had a WM 5.0 phone.
