bold 9700 or bold 9780
Hey so I'm kinda new here and I've been trying to get an extra phone as a back up to my bold 9900. I'm stuck between the bold 9700 and 9780. I'm working for my dad in construction a few days a week and I don't want to ruin my 9900 so I thought of getting a back up for those days I work with my dad. But I don't know which would be better. I have att so if I were to get a 9780 I would need to get one compatible with the network so I can use 3G since I tend to do a bit of browsing and send emails for my dad while I'm working with. So if yall can help me out on which one to get it would great. Thanks.

9780 has double the application storage of a 9700, both are solid devices with sturdy construction. If you're looking for a cheaper phone use the 9700, although you can sometimes find the 9780 for cheap.Device(s):
Curve 9300> Bold 9700> Z10>Samsung Galaxy Note 2

I'd get 9780, as 256 ram is very low for installed apps, and not to mention 9700 is very old now, still a solid phone, but as mentioned, 9780 is an upgrade in more ram, slightly better camera, and a minor cosmetic changed (no chrome below and around the edges, just all pure black and stylish.)
If I had to choose, I'd choose 9780 BUT as I just said, both are solid devices for being a phone that works as a phone, and the battery lasts couple days - both models have a good reputation for lasting very long - assuming you're not watching videos or listening to a lot of audio/music.First Berry:

With 9700, you can get an upgrade to OS 6, which makes browsing substantially better than what came before. It also adds universal search. The issue is that OS 6 basically sucks out all of the available space on the 9700 leaving you with little room for any apps. So 9780 probably a better choice.------------------------------------
Sometimes I wonder if the Styx song, "Too Much Time On My Hands" was a secret foretelling of the tendency to armchair CEO in discussion forums?
"Now, I'm a jet fuel genius I can solve the world's problems without even trying
I have dozens of friends and the fun never ends
That is, as long as I'm buying
Is it any wonder I'm not the president ...?"
