    Question Nextel 7100i vs Sprint 7130e?

    Advertisement



    I am currently on Nextel with a 7100i and I was wondering if giving up the DC was worth the faster internet on the Sprint 7130e or 8703e? Also, are there any other advantages to Sprints network vs Nextels?

    Welcome to pinstack.

    Sprint's EVDO blows away Nextel's packet data internet. The 7130e is a little thicker than the 7100i, and it doesnt slim down near the bottom so it fits perfectly in your hand like the 7100i does. I dont like the feel of the 7130e in my hand.

    I work for the company so I have a choice of what I want, and I have chosen to stay with the 7100i, which I have had for a year already. So my choice is definitely with the 7100i. I dont mind the slower internet.

    I don't care about the net as I rarely surf it and use the walkie and texting more.

    7100i fits well for my needs. As cp said the evdo on sprint is REALLY good and is worth the net package if you surf a lot. I use opera mini and to me it loads like a fast version of dialup.

    My vote is the 7100i

    Hey guys, you all really like the 71xx series? I had Nextel 7520, and just switched to a 8703 with Sprint, because of the full keyboard, I could never do the 71XX.

    But Opera Mini is sometimes just as fast as evdo...so if you need the walkie-talkie service, then keep the 7100i and get the Opera Mini app
