    Thinking about upgrading my phone

    Advertisement



    Hi all.
    I currently have a Verizon 7250 and I was thinking its time to upgrade. What phone would you suggest I get? I'm not too fond of the trackwheel design like the pearl. I'm looking for a full QWERTY keyboard. Something much like the 8703e. I'm just not sure if I want to get that one since I haven't looked into it that much. I just want to know if it'll be worth it.

    Also, are there any phones that support mp3 ringtones properly? I keep reading places that its a pain to upload them to your phone via email/browser downloading.

    Thanks again.

    I have heard the same thing about the 8700 series. I do know from sales experience all the new things they have done lately are on phones designed with a "pearl" trackball except for this mysterious 9000 series I keep hearing about but have seen nothing on. For what its worth I love my pearl more than ANY other phones I have ever had-the curve has all of its style with a full "qwerty". Good luck!

    Heard the same thing about ringtone support? or something else?

    Also what would you recommend? If I were to get the pearl-type phone is there one you would say is the "better one"?
    Thanks.

    It really all depends on what features are most important to you...
    camera or not, size, keyboard style etc. I also have the pearl and have NO complaints, I LOVE my phone. But I know some prefer full keyboard over suretype..

    Good luck in your quest

    That's another problem. Verizon Wireless doesn't have/(support?) most of those Blackberrys. I can only pick from a small list.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~If you want a newer phone that still uses the old trackwheel and can play mp3 ringtones, then look to the 8703e. I had one and loved it, except for the fact it didn't have the media player capabilities and microsd card slot, thus I upgraded to the 8830. But yeah the 8703e/7130e are the last of the trackwheel bb's if I'm not mistaken.
