Is this AIM compatible like how the sidekick is? also how much does unlimited data cost, b/c i saw on the verizonwireless website that it costs 59.99/month but that seems like a lot especially since when i had the sidekick for tmobile it was only 20/month for unlimited data

BlackBerry 7130e or BlackBerry 8703e ???

I am planning to go with the BlackBerry but not sure which one to get. Motorola Q isn’t good based on the review I read here. Anyone can recommend what to choose between BlackBerry 7130e and BlackBerry 8703e. Thank you.

Voice Quality Question

I've noticed while talking to people who use the traditional blackberry (7250) as a phone, that the device picks up a lot of background noise.

For those of you who use the 7130, can you comment on the voice quality of this device?

I appreciate your fedback as you all are BB owners and I am not as of yet.

Problems with Echo on 7130?

Researching an issue for my boss. He has a Blackberry 7130, a Motorola H70 Blue-tooth Headset, and a Motorola Premium Bluetooth Wireless in-car kit. His provider is Verizon. He has been having horrible problems with echo on calls (both incoming and outgoing) and has already returned both the 7130 and the H70 once to see if that would remedy the issue. The devices seemed to work well for a while, but the echo has reappeared. It's not consistent on every call, and it happens on both calls to/from cell phone and land line.

Have any of you had like issues? If yes, what did you do to resolve it? The in-car kit works great, he's had better luck with the second H70, and he appreciates the functionality of the Blackberry, but the echo is s...

Unit Not Turning Off and Hard Reset Frequency

I have my unit programmed to automatically shut down daily at 10pm and restart at 6am. Occasionally, it doesn't shut down completely, the green LED light continues to flash, and the battery is partially drained. Verizon advised me to reprogram {*228} unit once/week and to do hard reset bi-weekly. Does anyone else have this problem? I think Verizon doesn't want to admit there is a problem with my unit. Thanks.

BB internet

Is it possible to have a BB just as a phone, ie if you just wanted to use it as a pda, witch it also does verry well, but do not need internet or e-mail, if you bought it online or from a private party, not the local cell phone store, since they will not sell this device without a data plan, could it be conected as just a phone>

Losing voice data plan when activating enterprise (BES)

Has anyone had the situation come up where they activated their email account with a Blackberry Enterprise Server (BES), then lose your voice plan? I have been on the phone with Sprint (7130e phone) for over 3 hours today and no one can figure out what has happened. Strange that my phone worked perfectly for 2 weeks when I was using it for voice calls and SMS only, then I lose the ability to make or receive calls immediately after my company's IT dept. sets up the phone to receive my company emails. Emails come through fine now, but when I attempt to make a call the phone says I can only make emergency calls....and all incoming calls go straight to voice mail. Sprint's Blackberry support team has no clue so any insight I could get would be g...

Blue Tooth Issues

I just recently purchased the 7130e after many months of anticpation. I also purchased some acc. from the site of which one was the jabra 250v bluetooth headset. I recevied a lot of static on the line. Thinking it was a bad headset I strolled down to the local store and picked up a new one. Same issue. Tech support could only tell me how to reset the headset and any furhter tech support would need to be done through jabra. A call to them and they had no resolve. Thinking that the issue may be with the phone I purchased a Plantroncis headset. No static and good to go. So incase you are thinking Jabra 250v. I don't recommend with teh 7130e... they just don't work.
