    Better signal strength with the 8700

    Advertisement



    Is it jus me does the 8700 have a much better signal in areas that used to be spotty? With my 7105 when I was here at the house, my signal constantly kept going in and out and I could barely use bb messenger. But now I am able to do other things such as get on pinstack and browse the forums. Its great! I am not getting an edge signal but I am getting GPRS as where I barely was able to get a signal before. Different antenna I assume? Anyone else notice this?

    Not noticed a different bewteen my 7290 and 8700g here in the UK (on T-Mobile using GPRS). There could be more variation between copies than between models, dare I suggest such a scenario ;-)

    I can second that.
    I am seeing less spotty areas now with the new 8700g.
    My wife also acknowldged this fact. This is the only thing that she likes about my new toy. ;-)

    I've noticed more coverage in most places, but there's a few where the edge will go to just gprs where my Nextel had perfect service. But at work and home its 100% so I'm happy.

    I went from a Nokia 6620, which dropped to low reception in and around my house, to a BB 7280, which I thought had great service. Then I got my 8700, and I don't know how I lived without it. Perfect EDGE service everywhere.
