  1. RIM went 3g many months ago! They launched the 7130e which is EVDO capable with Verizon. Been using it for a month, nothing to complain.

  2. Would love to hear more about the E61. I’ve been thinking about picking one up on eBay for use here in the States to replace my Treo 650. How’s it working with your MacBook Pro?

  3. Vodafone’s major problem is that they have slow 3g uptake in Europe and lack of a killer application for 3g wireless, a problem shared in other areas.

  4. Om, Just used the e61 for 1 week as replacement for BB8700. Good grief. The GPRS pathway for packet data is always on for Blackberry C

  5. Sorry about the post error. I will continue. …always on for Blackberry connnect. When you have an incoming or outgoing call the Blackberry conncet packet data is placed on hold. At the end of the call it must intiate the GPRS pathway again. The problem is that quite frequently (50% of the time) it could not engage the BB conncet and I needed to reboot. Also settings on e61 are so layered, so deep, so fragmented that its hard to know where to go to change any settings. Lock and unlock on the device is also cumbersome and could be easier. On the plus side the phone is crystal clear and holds that signal. The browser is fun, new exciting to use. Good calendar as well. If you rely on Blackberry Internet Service and use the BB connect you may find it too unreliable for your messaging needs and resort back to the BB.
