    8700 return?

    Advertisement



    Hey guys! Have any of you guys considered (or have already) returning back to the 8700 from the curve? Don't get me wrong, I love my 8310. It has cool features that the 8700 doesn't. Camera, GPS, Media Capabilities. However, one thing it lacks is the 8700's durablility. The 8700 is like a tank. Minus the three above features, it is the same as far as software and hardware go.

    Also, the 8310 is terrible about fingerprints, smears, etc. It is just a fragile phone. Not saying I will switch back, just wondering who else thought like this.

    I saw at&t has the 8700 back, and at&t branded. It brings back memories. :.-( But, no way no way no way!!

    i would probably keep the 8700 for my collection but the new BB's have come with too many winning features.

    I agree. 8700 is a tank. I've given it my unplanned endurence tests: dropped, knocked, etc. and it just kept going. I now have my second 8830 and it needs to be replaced with a third.

    The 8700 was an awesome phone. I loved that think because of the clarity of the screen and its durability, but I don't think I can live without having WiFi, a camera and my trackball. One of the main reasons I switched from a 8700 to a 8100 to a 8300 to a 8800 to a 8310 was for the trackball.

    I agree. If something happens to this insanely high priced fragile device, I am going back to the tank, if not before. As for the trackball, I find that I could work faster and easier with the track wheel.

    Ha! You have no idea how ironic that statement is. So many people complained that the 8700 wasn't as durable as former models when it was first released... If you want a real tank try the 7290.

    The only reason I'm on an 8700 right now is because I lost my 8800 and can't afford to replace it with an 8310 just yet.
