    Not really digging 7100i

    Advertisement



    I have had this a little over a year now and I am not digging that it doesn't allow you to have certain ringtones and the text messaging has not been working right. Can anyone tell me what is the better bb to get? I saw on Nextel's website a Sprint Rumor by LG. It looks like a cool phone does anyone have this that can give me a review on it?

    Thanks guys I always know I can come here the best advice and help

    My wife has her 7100i and I had the 7100i for a number of years.... Keep in mind that 7100i is GPS capable and can play .wav file (provided you update your operating system).

    I would highly recommend the 8830 if you are a 7100i user since that would indicate that you are a BB business user.... If not, then a Pearl if you are SureType master.

    Re: Not really digging 7100i

    What is the latest operating system for the 7100i and how do I find which one I have. I have been looking under the options and then applications. Sorry if I sound clueless but I am still trying to figure out all the ins and outs of the BB

    Sprint Is launching the Pearl 2 on Nov 23rd. I will be dumping my 7100i and heading to the sprint side of the house as there is no estimate or guess on when the next Blackberry with PTT will be released.

    As for version of your OS you can find it under:
    Tools/ About.
    The current version available for download from Nextel (Sprint) is 4.1.0.376

    You can download it here:
    http://nextelonline.nextel.com/en/su...upgrades.shtml

    Blackberry Handheld Software v4.1.0.525 (Multilanguage)

    Package Version: 4.1.0.525
    Consisting of:
    • Applications: 4.1.0.376
    • Software Platform: 2.1.0.46
    • File name: 7100iEFS_PBr4.1.0_rel525_PL2.1.0.46_A4.1.0.376_Nex tel.exe
    • File size: 39.45MB
    Hope this helps...

    In case you didnt do this, you can go to blackberry.com, join the Users Lounge and download the update OS from there. Good Luck!

    If you are a die hard PTT user then you are limited to a new OS for the 7100i. If you don't use it as much, I say go for the Pearl 2 or the 8830. I have friends who switched from Nextel to Sprint and now use the 8830. With all the advantages of the newer BB's, they don't miss PTT much anymore. Plus you can still use the phone or a text. Just as simple and effective imo

    Well if it were me I wouldn't care about having the PTT feature. but my hubby just dies if he doesn't have it. but I think I will sweet talk him into me getting either the pearl 2 or the 8830.

    Thanks guys

    Yeah I agree.... See my review of the 8830 Just search by my username within Pinstack...

    Like I said, I gave my wife my 7100i and went with a 8830. Next year she will have a Pearl or 8830.

    The 8000 BB series kicks serious butt !
