    Other than the camera, are there other features that the 8130 has over the 8830?

    I love this phone! I have been through the 8703 and went back to the Treo's... 700p, 755p and even the newest Palm Centro 690p. The only thing BB needs to do is add the "Roaming Only" feature in the network settings like all the other Sprint phones have!!!

    Why would you want roaming only? The plan is definitely $30 for BIS, $39.99 is a promo and the original plan is $50.

    Have a few questions I couldn't find answers for. Any help would be great. Why can't I text pics or video? How do you turn off the pop up words when you type?what's the best way to set up the browser?

    you can turn off the pop up words by switching from suretype to multitap (hit menu when in a text box)
    as for pics/video Sprint disabled that on their Smartphones.

    This type of tactic only works when your talking to customer care or the retention department , in a Sprint Corporate Retail store we are dictated by our computer systems on upgrade prices , If you add a new line however , they allow us to be leniant but as far as upgrades go , customer care or retention (aka Account Services) can lower the price

    That really works when you ask to speak to the retention CS manager. I was also able to lower my monthly billing too.
