Well I've been on the sprint forums and on the phone with their reps and it sounds like they won't be getting stock for the Curves anytime soon due to the backlog orders of the Instinct that just came out. I currently have a Pearl but was wondering if it was worth getting the 8830 instead (not 8330) since the curve is MIA for who knows how long. I guess I was just looking forward to the full keyboard. Will I be downgrading in features if I go to the 8830??
