Ok, I was under the mis-impression that the Curve and the Bold were the same except the Curve was the non-business model for people that weren't traveling over seas. That they were just alike in every other way. I hate to admit it. I didn't know there were different levels off BBs. Thought they were all just BBs. But then my experience was 3 Curves didn't work, the Bold did from the start. So for the future, how do you know which are entry level, mid or Best? I mean is it just the price that's the tip off, or is it something you just sort of get to know after you've been a BB fan for awhile. I really did read the descriptions on Sprint, I knew the Style had a better camera, yet the Bold cost more. I'm urging hubby to get a BB when he upgrades and I'm suppose to suggest (by reading forums and seeing what owners say about the models) a model for him. I know now I don't want to suggest an entry level BB.
