i530 or i730?

Just lost my i90c, which I liked a lot, except for the power connection, which was pathetic. I knew the first time I saw it that there was going to be trouble, and there was. But I digress.....

I'm using an i30sx, which I can't stand, temporarily. I'm trying to decide between the i730, and the i530. The additional features of the 730, and color, don't matter much to me. What REALLY matters is signal strength, dropped calls, etc.

Has anyone used both phones in their company or otherwise? Any comments?

Thanks

I was in the same boat as you. I couldn't decide between the two phones. I was coming from a Verizon LG vx4400 (color) and I switched to Nextel, I finally decided on the yellow i530, and I am very happy with my decision. The phone has lived up to its "military standard" reputation so far. I can brows news and send text messages, even without the color screen. I had no trouble sacrificing the color screen for the B&W LCD.
