    Upgrade from 8700C to ?

    Advertisement



    Looking to upgrade my ATT 8700c to another more "modern" BB...the 8700 is showing use, the track wheel is starting to act funny among other things.

    Not interested in the Storm (not really into touch screens), maybe a Curve or Bold? Any significant difference between the two? I was looking at either a 8310/8320 Curve or the 8900, or the Bold. I'm leaning towards the Bold for the added memory.

    Thoughts? I'll end up paying for it since I only have a little more than a year on this 8700c...

    if you're with sprint or Verizon get the tour. If you're with tmo or att then wait for the 9700. If you don't want to spend much and are with tmo then get the 8520. your last option should be an 83xx series curve

    Since you are with AT&T, if...

    a) you need an absolute solid device without heck ups and a work horse I would go with the Curve 8310/8320/8900 or 8800 - no camera or the Bold 9000 with 3G, camera, nice keyboard.

    b) you can afford bugs and can afford to upgrade your OS a few times for the next few months and want/need 3G then wait for 9700

    8310 has a lot of hickups imo. 8900 and bold are solid

    We have ATT.

    The wife's 8310 has never given any problem, that's the reason I was considering it. It has been far less troublesome than this 8700.

    I've read more negative reviews on the Bold than any of them (on the ATT site).

    Any links to the 9700?

    Gotta agree with Chokem. The 8900 is an extremely solid device, but since you're on AT&T, I'd go with the 9700. It's looking to be a really solid device and will have 3G and Wi-Fi, something us T-Mo customers have been craving.

    I had an 8700g for 4 or 5 years and begrudgingly went with the 8900. Best decision I could have made. I like the fit better than the 9700. Although the 9700 is a little better at media, the screen is fantastic on the 8900. I don't do a lot of browsing or media, so the 8900 is perfect for me. You'll love the trackball over the trackwheel for changing calendar days and times. Much faster.
