    Sometimes being patient with Sprint is easier said than done. They just don't keep up with the rest of the pack when it comes to staying current with the latest wireless gadgets. I know I am preaching to the choir.....

    I've already advised my Verizon corporate rep that I want one as soon as they are available.

    I have been looking forward to this device since back in Feb when I heard about it. I will be buying it on May 14th (or sooner if it comes in stock in the VZW warehouse before the release date).

    I like the new device...but I prefer my phones to be Black in color! One of the main reasons I got the 8703e! But I'll never know...might change my tune once I hold this new baby in my hands. I'll wait until Aug...that's when my upgrade discount is usable!

    Does anyone know why Verizon disables GPS?! They enable it on their cheap phones, but for a state of the art global Smartphone they shut it down. Is it me?

    I believe that the 8830 actually does have GPS, it's just not enabled yet, based on a conversation that I had with our Verizon and RIM reps yesterday. I don't have any info on when the GPS might be made available (and I also have no idea why it's not available today either.)
