Switching to 6800 from 6900
 
Hi, I have the 6900 but am not happy with it due to lack of keyboard and the 6800 has this plus the wifi. I understand the 6800 has less ram, does this really impact it that much? The 6800 is looking better than my 6900 especiall since i dont have data plan and want to be able to use the wifi.

I would say it limits the phone a lot. If I have several programs open it slows down considerably, not to mention the "low memory" messages. It all depends on your intended usage. You can go custom with the rom and get a little more. Nuerom I've heard has 33mb at boot, and dcd 3.3.4 I have 27 at boot. So again, it depends on how you're gonna use it.

If you're familiar with the phone and Windows Mobile, you'll develop a "patience" for it. If you're impatient, just want the damn thing to work, don't care about bells, whistles, and then some, then don't bother. The 6800 is an amazing phone when modified. Get it. I'd sell you mine, but I'm not ready to upgrade to the 6850 yet. ;)

Ok, thanks for the input. I have decided to get the 6800 and just ordered it and got free overnight, it should be here tomorrow. I cant wait to try it out! Quick question, does it have enough memory to play music and browse the internet at the same time?

I actually want to go the other way. I want the Touch. I like more RAM, smaller phone, flush screen, etc...

PDAPhoneJunkie, here I will take my personal view and disagree with you. I love my 6800 but a 6900 would be useless to me. Sure I would love more RAM but the loss of a KB is a killer for me. Plus no WiFI is another deal breaker. I didnt have a data plan for a long time and used WiFI all the time. Now that I have a data plan I use it as much as I used to use WiFi and either one is equally a backup to the other. In other words, you couldnt give me a 69 over a 68. Just my opinion though.

The 6800 is garbage, I can't wait to get rid of it.

Wow. That statement just shows your adolescence and technological inexperience. Because of that, I checked to see what else you wrote in your other posts (since you don't have that much), all your posts are negative and complaintive. Get a flip phone. Someone of your intellectual capacity won't have anything to worry about.

I am using a Sprint TouchPro activated on my Verizon account.

That being said, I still own two highly modified xv6800's & I LOVE the damn things.

Would I like more memory in them?? Sure I would, but one is running nueROM3 & with the POS camera disabled it will run for days without giving any out of memory errors.

As much as I like the TouchPro, I do miss a lot of stuff from the Titan (I really really miss all the dedicated hardware buttons a lot)

Dude, don't take this guy seriously. Read all his other posts. He doesn't know what he's talking about. Lets not make another thread about how good/bad this phone is. After all, this is the most discussed phone on this forum! :)

Couldn't have said it better myself. It reminds me of when I had all my various Treos & the people who bought the phone knowing NOTHING about Palm OS & absolutely REFUSED to learn anything about it. They'd clog the forums with "I H8 MY PHOEN!!!11!" posts because they couldn't wrap their tiny minds around the fact that it took more than one button press to make a call. Personally I think everyone who wants to buy a smartphone should have to fill out an application beforehand to determine if they're too stupid to operate one. If they fail the test, the most they will be allowed to buy is an iPhone :P

I had Treos for 4 years. LOVED them. Still do, but my Mogul is the balls. This is seriously the coolest, most capable device I've ever owned. I thought my 755p was robust- the 6800 blows it out of the water. Anyone who says this device is a POS is just... well I don't wanna be rude so I'll shutup.

Yeah, I don't rely on WiFi. I don't need a physical keyboard either. In fact, I hate the keyboard feel on the 6800 and almost never use it. I like my 6700 keyboard better. As of now I am considering either getting a Sprint Touch Pro or a Native Verizon Vogue. I am liking it more and more... I like the small feel and flush screen. I am a big strong manly guy so it will barley be in the middle of my palm. Lol :mrgreen:

i have gone from the 6800 to 6900 and back to the 6800.

the reception is much better on the 6800 than the 6900, thefore, less drop calls and faster internet connection. wifi is also now a must for me since i feed the mogul internet into my router for all other devices to access the internet. battery is much better than the 6900 too. also there is a 60 percent chance that you will get a 6900 with a poor quality low viewing angel screen. the 6900 does look A LOT better than the mogul.

nueROM3 is amazing. Try that first before giving up on the phone.
