archive (close) the thread, its getting too long and hard to find info
Keep it going..I like having all the info on one thread.
I don't know about your hands, but I have figured out that as much as I like the 2125 I have to pass it up for the keyboard on the 8125. I spend too much time doing e-mail messages from my phone to have to try to hit the right key with the little number pad. It just won't work for me.Originally Posted by tripy
Oh, and I'm in my 30 day window. So here I sit watching people go nuts over every little thing in the two threads. I have two 8125's on order and they will get here when they do. Don't misunderstand, I REALLY want one, but won't go where some of the others here have. I'll let them do my leg work for me.
So I stance, let the 2125 go if you use the keyboard more than on the "occasional" use. Unless you have really small hands and love hitting a key more than once to find a letter.
sorry I cant resize here at work guys.
Also, it has an icon for "voice speed dial" and under the options it list you contacts
CONFIRMED voicedail of contacts via BT (used Motorola HS850)
The first time I clicked on the Cingular link (found on page 47 of this thread) the 8125 was there. But, now it is gone. Any ideas? Has Cingular pulled it off?
i agree but have come to appreciate the joys of t9 to sms and short reply emails. i wish i could get someone with a 8125 to comment on the "phonepad" feature and if it has a useful t9 function in non-landscape with the qwerty closedOriginally Posted by turtle2472
when can regular customers buy this?
Rumoris somewhere around the 20th.
How is the keyboard on the 8100/8125 for txt?Originally Posted by tripy
I hope the buttons allow you txt with ease, I have played with the live demos of the HPs, BBs and Treo's and I was rather disppointed with the keyboard layout and smallish buttons.
Have you tried using the WiFi on your demo model?
Can it connect to WPA/WEP or otherwise password protected networks?
I ordered the 8100 (yes, though B2B) since I have enough camera phones.
Thanks for the pics and your answers.
The pre-production model I had did not have this.Originally Posted by xeony2k

The 8125 phone is almost identical to the Sprint version, and I found the touchscreen to be very usable for dialing. I used to have a Treo 650 and dialed with the touchscreen all the time. It's pretty easy to get used to, but you lose the tactile feel of an actual button.
For dialing from it being mounted in a car or something like that you'll probably find that's it's actually easier to dial with the touchscreen than the regular phone keypad.
Hope that helps.
You will be pleasantly suprised with this aspect of the device. I have fat fingers and I thought it was a breeze. Buttons click when you press them, I am impressed.Originally Posted by i0wnj00
I did pick up 2 wiFi signals but didnt try to do anything further with it. I can only confirm that it works.Originally Posted by i0wnj00
Is it possible to use this one handed at all? Can your thumb reach all the buttons if you hold it the right way?
Does anyone with an IBM premier account know if the 50% discount applies only to new activations or can it also apply to no-contract purchases as well? I would love to be able to pick this phone up for $225.

The Premier site now shows the 8125 out of stock.
