    Verizon out of I760's sending me touch Pro

    My i760 refurb that verzion sent me a couple of weeks ago is already crapping out. I called for another and they told me they are completely out of the i760s and will have to send me a new Touch Pro as replacement. I was kind of excited at first as I like new gadgets, but the more I think about it, I really like my i760.

    I would like feedback, would it be worth it to just sell my Touch Pro and buy a used i760? Or is the touch pro better? I don't know if I can get used to a device with no buttons. I'm just a huge fan of one-hand cell phone use. Constantly using two hands to do simple tasks sound somewhat daunting to me right now.

    The nice thing about the TP is how much you can mod it. Go look around the TP forum and you will see what I mean. Worldwide geek support I am on i760 replacement #4 and so far its OK, but i'll make the jump to the TP till some of the new phones come out (Omnia Pro look promising).

    I still miss all the involved things I could do one-handed on my Sammy with AEButton+, but the TP is a significantly better phone in several respects, especially GPS and VGA. For more details, you may be interested in this thread:

    Do you have to pay for a data plan now?

    Fortunately I do not have to be on the dataplan since I was "grandfathered" in. I have a sweet 5mb package that I use strictly for email. It's sweet and I never go over. Well, sometimes I do if I start using google maps, but over all. 5mb is plenty for emailing.

    So far the phone is ok, I really miss my buttons that I had programmed with a/e button plus. I'm researching how to flash the rom and put 6.5 on it. That part is neat as I love dinking around with that stuff.

    Yea most Verizon reps are in shock when they see it. It was a promotion that lasted like a month from a few years ago that was attached to my HTC 6600-Buy a smart phone and get 5mb/month free for life. The only problem is that I've been stuck on America's choice for an awful long time. It still go back to do the math and debate if it's worth and it still is.
