Is it easier to send/receive txt messages on the 8200 than on the 8100?

I have had the Sanyo 5300 and the 8100. Text messaging is a ROYAL pain in the butt becuase you would have to connect to the internet in order to send and receive text messages.

MOST of the time the server would be down or the network would be down or it would just take forever to log on.

Has it gotten any easier? From the looks of the phone and online demo it SEEMS that you don't have to sign on to the internet any more and can simply go into the messages inbox and read the messages.

Any info is appreciated

When you hit the messaging button on the nav key, it brings up 5 options: Send Mail, Picture Mail, Text Msg, Go to Email, and Voicemail.

-Send Mail is super quick messaging.
-Picture mail goes to either an inbox or your pictures / camera mode.
-Text Msg goes to your phone's message box (Inbox, Sent, Outbox, Drafts)
-Go to Email goes to PCS Email online, completely different set of emails.
-Voicemail, self explanitory.

I don't use the PCS Mail at all and I can't figure out why anyone would. If the two are linked, I haven't figured out how.

I've had the phone for almost a week. I'm going to Sprint to figure out how mulitple users on one bill work and passwords and this online mail thing. I'll report back with any details.
