I work in a VZW store, and I can tell you I see a lot more 325i's back with problems. Of course, there were a lot more sold than the a870, so you'll have that. I would honestly go with 325i, BT capable, and once the S/W updates are done to the phone, battery life, reception, and clarity are awesome. But you're gonna want to make sure that it has the current S/W in the phone. Same with the a870. Plus the 325i takes a beating too. I've seen them come back looking like they were used as hockey pucks or something and still worked pretty good.
