i've had this phone since the beginging of the month and at first i really liked it, but now i've realized that when you're talking on the phone even with volume all the way up it is still quiet and it freezes alot! especially if you are a fast texter like me, it freezes in the middle of everything! i think i'mgoing to get a new phone tonight!

First I had the blackberry tour which I had for 4days and was ready to throw it off a cliff since it kept freezing up and barely kept a battery charge, so then then traded it in for the new curve which was just as bad if not worse!!! theres times i would try going on the internet and it would say internal server error cannot complete task along with several things (like the gps that doesnt work!!! TAKE MY ADVICE DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY OR THE HASSLE OF TRYING ANY BLACKBERRY!!! THERE JUNK!! i'm goin back to my old faithful razor which hasnt given me any problems the past 2 years i've had it!

I have only had this phone 2 weeks and am not impressed. I'd rather go back to my old Blackberry Curve. The batterly life goes way to quickly, my application (blackberry button) doesnt work and am un able to view chats in Blackberry Messenger. I will be switching back to the old blackberry due to all the issues with this new device.

Okay, here's the hoedown throwdown. I realy didn't like the other BlackBerry's. Um...including the Pearl and the older Curve. But if you didn't like those get THIS! This is an amazing with no scrollerball! YAY! Scrollerbar's suck! So this phone is amazing! Definetly get it, I had it for about 3 months and no problems. Truly an amazing phone!

I got this yesterday and so far so good. I was a die-hard palm Treo fan but it was a dinosaur and had lived a good life. This phone has the ability to convert me. The track pad it great and my main interest - scheduling seems pretty slick. Making the switch from windows based to this format looks like it is do-able - even for a baby boomer like me.
