okay, that post didn't work out as well as i had hoped. needless to say i am angrier than before. Mad

RIM seriously needs to come out with a blackberry with 3G.... in the next month so i can go out and upgrade to it

Wait til Q1 for them to announce a 3G BB.

What is the big deal about 3G. I'm sure life is just fine right now without 3G on the Blackberry Eh?

3g would be nice but its not that important. my 8800 is just as fast as any other 3g phone

I've had Cingular before and there Edge technology is really slow compared to Verizon EVDO technology. However, I use an old Motorola E815 and have used the device as a modem to my laptop of the past year or two. This is before they installed the firmware and you can use the device as a modem and tether for free. Well not free b/c it cost you minutes but you catch my drift. You don't even need to get V-Cast. Anyway, b/c the device has an internal antenna it works @ speeds of 250-290 Kbps whereas the E815 works from 350 Kbps up to the highest I've seen @ 500 Kbps. The speeds made me go back to Verizon and I've never looked back.

So how long have you been working for Verizon?

Real estate developer. What can I say I need my information quick Smile .

Verizon is expensive and they don't cut you any breaks but they are the best serviced I used. I'd like to go w/ an unblocked GSM phone but my experience w/ Verizon service has been much better than AT&T. I've never had T-Mobile b/c they don't have 3G phones and I know they drop a lot of calls b/c many of my friends use the phone since they had a contract w/ the City of Philadelphia.

you do realize that EVDO is CDMA version of at&t 3g. its a wireless broadband network.edge is 2g. what i want you to do davey is take an at&t edge device and put it up speed for speed against verizons 1xRTT and you will see the difference in the 2g technologies. especially if you go against a blackberry which can run faster than most 3g devices before you modify its ssettings. then i want you to take your EVDO and match it with a 3g device, lets say the at&t 8525. tell me which is faster. 8525 must be in 3g coverage area. Very Happy

Maybe all of you GSM boys should consider Sprint or Verizon. Laughing

maybe sprint or verizon should release this phone!

maybe EV-DO should catch up to 3G, it's been my experience that the EDGE where I live is faster than the "3G" Sprint in my area.
