I just switched from the NEXTEL 7520 Blackberry to the Sprint 8703 Blackberry because I was having service and connection issues with NEXTEL. Dropped calls, no service,GPS never worked,etc. All occurred after hurricane Wilma which knocked out towers that were not replaced.

I am very happy so far with the 8703 and would recommend it.

To start, the screen and colors are amazing and not bleak and colorless like the 7520. Also the phone voice quality seems to be better and clearer. The keypad is a little smaller and takes getting used too, but not a big deal. I like the Red and Green separate phone connect options unlike using the trackwheel to make calls on the 7520, I used to hang up on calls in error all the time on the 7520. That problem is now gone.

Standard Battery life is far longer than the extended battery I had with the 7520. This phone is much smaller and lighter than the 7520. You almost don't need the clip, this phone fits in your back pocket. The vibrate function is pretty weak, so you may miss calls if you rely on it.

I wish there was a camera on this unit, It would make this the perfect phone. A live video feature would also be nice, but I can live w/o it for now.

The ringtones are 100 times better and louder - the 7520 was worthless and you could never hear it ring even on the loudest volume. Wallpapers are also good.

Speaker-phone is loud and people can actually hear me now.

The reason I switched is the GPS TeleNav feature. Its $10 a month ,but way worth it. It has real time Tom-Tom like 3D graphics, It shows lakes, canals, upcoming streets,etc. It very user friendly and seems to work all the time. With my line of work it gets me to locations fast without having to use a map at all. It also finds closet restaurants, and businesses, you have the option to call it or drive to it with 1 click of the track wheel.


I gave this phone a 4.0 because it had no camera. Add a camera and it will have a 5.0.
