Actually, it will be substantially faster.

"actually", the O/S will be faster on the Bold than the Curve 8330. However, it still only uses HSDPA, which even ATT claims is 400-700kbps on average, which is exactly the same as what Verizon claims on their website for 3G EVDO ...again 400-700kbps on average. Check both carrier's websites out for yourself. Besides that, i've used both carrier's data cards side by side, and haven't noticed a speed difference. Again, the only difference is that Verizon currently has more 3G coverage.

I wouldn't quite say that. T Mobile has had the "best" customer service something like 3 years in a row according to JD Power survey.
Customer service is only one aspect to consider when evaluating the best carrier for you. I was not referring to "best customer service" or else I would have used those words specifically. TMO's CS is excellent but no amount of excellent customer service will address a lack of coverage.

Coverage needs to be considered first. Factor in other items as they are relevant to you. As I said, there's no universally "best" carrier given those factors. No single carrier has perfect coverage in every location despite the ravings of the fanboys of the various carriers.

It does not mean the network is slower ... BIG difference. If you switch to the Bold, you will get a device a lot better than the curve, plus be on a data network that is faster than what Verizon can provide until they go 4G.
On top of that you'll be able to send email and browse the web while on a phone call at the same time.
