    I've had my 8130 about a month now and love it...but as I use email for work more than anticipated, I'm thinking of switching to the 8830 for both a full qwerty and a bigger screen. Thoughts? I'm outside the 30-day verizon window. If I do it, I'm thinking of ebay-ing both ways, as my 8130 is in pristine condition. Is there a better option? Can I haggle my way in the store? Is the switch just not worth it?

    I too have a company supplied phone and I was offered the chance of picking the model that I wanted. My colleague chose the Pearl and I went with the 8830. He regrets his decision now and I'm in excellent shape with the bigger screen and the full Qwerty keyboard.

    I'd go for the 8830 too! Keyboard & bigger screen are def a plus! Then again, think about whether or not the camera is a huge necessity for you..

    Good luck!

    If a camera is not an issue, then the 8830 will work just fine

    I know a couple of people with pearls. They love them but I can't stand not having a qwerty keyboard. If you do swap you won't regret it.
