I also upgraded from a Razr V3t to a curve and for me it was well worth it. It has been a long and i do mean long time since i have really been satisfied with a phone. Since you won't be using any of the internet features on it, i don't know how much use it would be to you. I can tell you that the voice quality and volume on it are great and so is the speakerphone. The speakerphone is as clear as when you are on the handset and everyone has commented that they could not tell when i was or was not on speaker. The screen on it is great as well, vivid colors and deep blacks.
