Hey everyone, I currently have a 7105t and my 2 yr plan just finished, so I finally can get a new phone! I want to stick with a blackberry, but there were a few things about the 7105t I did not like:

-Could not connect to other phones or computer via bluetooth (I would have liked this since others that could connect to the computer were able to upload MP3's and use them as ringtones)
-Could not use T-Mobile's browser to even download ringtones and games
-Was part of T-Mobiles "blackberry" department so there were always complications...
-Occasional lag
-Not the reception (I've had deafening cracks and pops during calls)

Other than that, I loved the blackberry. So now, I'm looking at the Curve and I'm hoping it will be able do what my 7105t couldn't do. I see it has wifi and all the usual goodies.

So my question is, does the Curve have any of the similar issues my 7105t had as listed above? Also, what is everyone's experience with the browser? Can it take accommodate java or flash (so I can use youtube, etc).

Sorry for all the questions! Thank you in advanced!

Tony

I had the 7100t at one time, before getting the 8700g. My big issue was not being able to see anything on the display at all when outdoors in daylight.

To you questions:

* I'm not a big user of bluetooth, except a gps puck. But see if Main Page - BlackBerryFAQ helps you. Otherwise, I'll defer to others.

* I don't use use the tzones browser at all, except sometimes to look at my account. The blackberry browser (or opera mini) is the way to go. Do you have a blackberry data plan?

* "Was part of T-mobiles "blackberry" department . . ." -- I don't understand.

* I never had reception issues. That could be peculiar to tmobile in your location and not the 7105t. Or could be something with your individual handset.

* There is still no flash support in the blackberry browser. Of course we are all waiting to see what comes with the next generation blackberry.

On balance, my belief is you will be more than satisfied with the Curve. It will be a big change for the better.
