    Is it worth switching from a VZW 8130 to a VZW 8703e? Just thinking in terms of a bigger screen & full keyboard at a cheaper price. (cheaper then a curve - or does the Curve totally out do the 8703e?)

    The 8330 outclasses the 8703e in so many ways.

    8703e - No camera, can't use memory card, 64mb vs 96mb of
    memory, trackwheel instead of trackball, no multimedia function, etc...

    I would personally not take that far a step backwards and you
    can get the 8330 at good prices now.

    Would you say the 8703e is better then the 8130?

    Also, I've noticed the highest OS upgrade for VZW 8703e is V4.2. Is that really the latest or is there a V4.5??

    Even the 8130, with it's free memory issues, is better than the 8703. You can use a memory card to store pix,ringtones, etc on it, up to 16GB. You can upgrade the 8130's OS to 4.5.x.xx pretty easily (I do it all the time), and each update seems to manage memory a little bit better.

    As AG said, you can get the Curve for cheap now, especially with the Tour just out. I agree the 8703 would be a big downgrade.
