    Who here has 2 different BB's on different networks?

    Advertisement



    And why?

    How do you manage it? How do you like it? Is it worth the extra $ or effort to have both?

    Say for instance 8310 on AT&T and 8320 on TMobile...is what I'm asking about.

    if you really want the curve with wifi from t-mobile than go ahead and get it. What purpose will it serve other than being a new toy, since you are able to use data from AT&T. Is it possible to wait until your contract is up. Hey, I shouldn't offer advise because I sold my curve with AT&T to get my curve with t-mobile. I am. Very happy I did because I am now able to use my phone at home with Hot Spots. However I got my curve free from Amazon and used the money from the sale to pay the ETF with AT&T. The choice is yours but do whatever will make you happy.

    I would just take the curve that's fits your needs and coverage area better.

    Why? What purpose does it serve? Do you need a specific line for personal and a specific line for business?

    If its just because you want both, well thats up to you.

    For me, GPS isn't a big deal. I have a handheld unit for that, so if I were purchasing one today it would be the WiFi version.

    As someone else already said, get the one that best suits your needs, and/or the carrier that gives you the best coverage in your area.

    Just make sure you have the coverage you need with both/either device. I know wher ei live, I get good ATT, no T-Mo, although the coverage maps say I should.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~first of all, who is your provider? If you have tmobile then I recommend the 8320 because of the uma (that's what its all about), but if you have AT&T might as well just go with the 8310.

    That's not very fair and objective. T-mobile might provide very good service is his/her area. Here they are actually not too bad. I had AT&T and people got "number not in service" when they tried to call me but I could receive their text message and call them back. Each carrier has their markets of quality and lack-there-of.

    I'm assuming that comment reflects your experience -- but it's far from universal.

    T-Mobile has top marks in customer satisfaction for several years running. I've been a customer since they were "Voicestream", for both business and personal accounts. Every time a contract comes up for renewal, we do the due diligence comparing T-Mobile versus Cingular/AT&T, Verizon and even the smaller carriers. We survey other users using the other carriers re: signal/RF, dropped calls, customer support, etc. In our area, T-Mobile is generally as good as or better than the competition. Once we have it boiled down to choices that would be equally "good", we compare price and features - and here, T-Mobile blows away the others.

    BTW: I'm in the Princeton, NJ area, and my typical usage area ranges from Washington, DC up through most of NJ and into NYC / Manhattan. Also had good experience taking the phone to the west coast as well.

    Right now, for example, one of my contracts provides:
    - 3 phones / lines
    - 1000 anytime minutes shared across the three lines
    - Unlimited nights and weekends for all three lines
    - Unlimited messages, of any type, for all 3 (actually for up to 5 lines if I choose)
    - Unlimited BB/Internet for one of the lines

    ...and this costs me about $120 a month total.

    Customer service is available - and very responsive - 24 x 7. The very few times I ever had an issue, after helping me resolve it quickly, Customer Care provided me with an extra block of free minutes as a "thank you" for having been inconvenienced and being "patient" while they sorted it out.

    I haven't had a "busy circuit" in the last several years, and can't remember the last time I had a dropped call. RF, Service, customer service, uptime, features and cost have all been excellent -- which is why I've stayed with T-Mobile for the past several renewals.

    ...and 3G is going to be happening over the next few months. They're testing now, and have already released their first 3G phone.

    2nd that idea.

    Head over to the accessories forum and you'll find some reviews and listings of different gps pucks. I listed one a while back for a mini one that fits right on your key chain.
