For those that have this phone in America...


Apr 25, 2005, 12:20 PM
a few questions please:

a) i'm assuming the only way to use this phone in america is if i buy it "unlocked" (is there any other way to have it unlocked rather than buying it unlocked from ebay?). so i was wondering, which carriers will carry this phone? (i'm assuming cingular)

b) will this phone have instant messaging (AIM)?

c) are there any major differences from this phone and the s710a?

a)yep, this is a way to buy it other than ebay.. if that's what you're asking. this particular isn't being carried by a particular company but can be used for cingular and t-mobile (1900 mhz).

b)i'm not sure.... there is no dedicated button for AIM. i think that's on the s710a model.

c)the only major difference is s700i has a radio while s710a has EDGE but loses the radio function. also, the s700i is internation and mainly used outside of north america while s710a is dedicated for the americas (850 mhz)

So what you're saying is is that i'm better off buying the s710a instead? what is EDGE by the way. no AIM? hmmm... i use AIM a lot so this will be a huge dilema. Confused
