    just letting everyone know...

    Advertisement



    [Im Ronnie, aka Bonelafide. I'm not new to the forums, but probably not that well known. Ive been here since 07-03-07... where at the time i had an 8100.
    My dad got deployed to Afghanistan and wanted to take the pearl with him and got me a Pantech Duo. so I've had the Duo since December and wanted to go back to a pearl.

    I Really wanted the 8120, attempted to buy one from here but that didnt go so well (I ended up getting scammed by Bond47, along with another member here)
    ]

    Earlier today my mom called ATT for a problem with her bill and some how she ended up buying an 8110 for me! so im pretty happy to finally be able to get another Pearl!

    I got my 8110 in today. its nice feels great from 8100 i use to have. ima mess with it. but im glad i finally got me another pearl!

    yah. it kills. and like i get scammed but then my mom manages to get brand new pearls from ATT, ha. so now im in the process of getting my money back with paypal.
    beckymae and me both got scammed same day and all.

    but i figure that theres no difference or preference from the 8110 and 8120?

    i know one i noticed is colors... i love the 8120 blue one. didnt really want the 8110 cuz the titantium isnt really my color. and i dont like red like that.

    Yep, as far as I know that's the only difference... Wifi or gps. Personally, I would rather have gps. Browsing is not any better/faster over wifi compared with EDGE because of the device being the limiting factor. I find myself in many more situations where I would find it useful to have gps than wifi.

    I love the GPS on my 8310. So much, that I bought an 8310 and had it unlocked to be used on T-mobile. Wifi is nice, but GPS has saved my a** a few times.

    Other than the GPS difference, they do require different firmwares and aren't always released at the same time. Not sure which ones usually first, but I have noticed a difference. Also if you don't like the color you can try to find housings on the net of a color you like.

    oh, yah i knew about changing the housing. But im afraid of messing up the bb in the process or avoiding any type of warranty i may have. ha. I might just get me another Decalgirl skin that i had on my previous 8100. All black or something like that.

    and i've been looking at the GPS stuff, and it does seem cool and neat.

    Turned out ATT opend up a whole new contract under my moms name instead of my dads named; therefore making us pay for 6 lines instead of just the 3 we needed.

    The only way we could cancel the old contract was paying 175 per line.
    and
    the only way we could cancel the new one was to send back the 3 BBs!!

    we managed to cancel the new contract and keep one of the BBs and my mom gave it to me, but the sales rep recommended the LG vu since i didnt have BIS and i tried it out for a week and now im going to go back tomorrow and get the Pearl again and HOPEFULLY manage to get the internet for it.
