    Question Differences btwn AT&T 8100 & Sprint 8130?

    Advertisement



    Hello All,

    I am a AT&T 8100 user and love my phone so much that I convinced my boss & the owner to get the BB Pearl. The thing is that they have Sprint so they will be getting the 8130. They have already told me that they will be looking to me for advice and help with all things BB, so now I'm getting nervous

    Are there any significant differences between the 8100 and the 8130? I know it is CDMA and has GPS and a 2MP camera, but I'm more concerned with operating differences. Will all apps that run on my phone run on the 8130? Can I assume that what I do with my phone will work on their phones? I don't want to tell them something that turns out to be wrong! Please help!

    You should be fine. Just point them towards Pinstack if they have any trouble.

    There's a lot of improvements in the OS but it pretty much the same.

    yeah other than that they are very similar in how they function. You should be fine. If you get stuck you can run here and ask us ;-)

    Thanks! It's good to know there's nothing major to worry about. I have recommended a couple of apps and I suddenly wondered if they would work on the new OS! I'm sure I'll be running here from time to time anyway...

    Harry3334, I already tried switching them to AT&T, but they are in a business contract - too expensive to switch...

    The 8130 supposedly only has the white LED for the ball and not the other colors like the 8100 does. So it's kind of hard to change to what doesn't exist.

    The 8130 is an updated versiĂłn of 8100 with new things like built in GPS, 2 megapixels camera,video capture, high speeds EV-DO networks,Bluetooth 2.0., and memory card supports capacities up 4gb so actually is much better!!!!
