    I have a 700p that is giving me a lot of problems ( most of them are slow response and resets). I am with Verizon Wireless and they have the 680. Should I replace the 700p with a 680 or wait for the next update that will, one day, be available from Verizon?

    OK, I screwed that up. The 680 is not available from Verizon it is with AT&T. Still would it be worth changing companies for the 680?

    I switched from the 700p (VZE) to the 680 (AT&T) and have the following observations:

    -- the phone is MUCH more stable with less lag and fewer resets (provided you have the ATT ROM, which comes on the ATT logo phones and can be flashed onto the the Cingular logo phones)

    -- The service is good, but there are differences. The biggest is that GSM, which is a TDMA technology, causes minor interference with audio devices like computer speakers, baby monitors, car radios, etc. CDMA does not.

    -- I have found the service and coverage to be comparable. The data plans cost the same. The additional line is cheaper. ATT has rollover minutes.

    -- GSM roams internationally.

    That's all I got. Oh, one more thing. If you have a current contract with VZE, you should be prepared to pay a penalty for early termination. The good news is that ATT has the 680 for around $100 now.
