    1st review

    I hate technology, computers, & cell phones, but this thing sure is useful, it goes everywhere with me and I use it all the time, it does everything. They don't make this model anymore, it was replaced by the 8800 series "Curve" model, with the 'Pearl" button. My 8700 was getting pretty worn & beat up, so I bought an 8800 when they went on specia-discount. But after using it for a few weeks, I found liked the old one (8700) better as it was bigger and easier to use & push the buttons with my big fat cop-fingers. So I switched back to the 8700 & I'll continue to use it untill it breaks.

    This phone has great functions but the size is a little big for law enforcement use.

    I have one by AT&T that is very similar to this one. Alot of functions, though it is a little on the big, it works great. Access to internet; which more then one email address can be attached. Blackberrys are the best for this type of technology, if that is what you are aiming. I actually think it would be great for LEOs. I talked a few who loves theirs.

    The customer service alone that at&t provides is wonderful, so the combination of great service provider and a top of the line phone....... I'll let you be the judge
