T-Mo Curve Questions
 
So my contract has just expired with T-mo and im considering renewing it again for two more years and they offered me a decent deal on the same service but less $$. soo im wondering if i should get the curve or something else. I read that the OS upgrade later on in the year will eventually give the 8320 ability to record video and possibly send it as well. my question is if its a smart move to get a curve now or wait around for the "Expected" september release of the 9000 with the tmo 3g network roll out as well. should i just roll about without a contract till then or get this now?

I'd say personal preference will play the biggest part of the decision. The Curve is a nice device, however, if you are not one to upgrade to the newest and bestest (and it doesn't appear you are if you still have the 7105), i would say wait the 2+ months for TMo hottest offering to come.

i just havent been here in a while
noo that was my old T-mo BB back in 06 but i havent had one in the last year and i wanna get back to owning a BB. i really really want one not but i have no idea if i even want to wait anymore.

JSanders 06-22-2008 12:12 PM

In that case, I'd say go for the Curve now, the 8320 with WiFi is a great device.

And there is no evidence that T-Mobile will have the 9000 in September; no rumors on dates at all.

I would go with the 8320; I think it's a great BlackBerry.

Skip the two-year deal and renew for a year instead and get a Curve. You will pay a measly extra $50 for the Curve on a one-year deal -- $199 instead of $149 and it might be even less than $199 if you delay a month or so until the new iPhone comes out and causes ripples across the cell phone replacement market. Ten months into the new one-year deal when 3G is more firmly entrenched you can get a 3G phone with a maximum discount -- perhaps the 9000 -- and not pay a fortune for it like you will if you are first in line when it comes out. And your Curve will still have some value on Ebay. How's that for a plan? It's also what I'm going to do as my contract has also expired.

Why don't you stay month-to-month until a BB that you want comes out? That's what I did, I was month-to-month for a while and then back when the Pearl came out, I got it at the lower price when I signed up for another contract with TMO.

ID SAY GET THE NEW IPHONE AND HAcK THE CRAP OUT OF IT.sorry. i have the curve for t-mobile and its getting a bit boring :\ you can do more with the iphone if you hack it to its fullest :\

riiiite

NJBlackBerry i was over at the BOLD forum and a lot of people said september time for the Tmo BB9000 to come out. and the 3G to roll out. well thats what i captured from reading the different posts.

the TMO lady i talked to was gonna take 15 off my monthly bill soo id be getting the BB service for a measly 5 buck in comparison to my current bill. cause ill be getting a some nice savings if i renew the contract.

i mite do a one year deal and see what prices i can get.

but you gusy dont think the G3 and the bold will be rolling out in a few months.

Never post after drinking more than three beers.

NJBlackBerry 06-22-2008 02:31 PM

Well, I think you should wait (and not move a bit) until the T-Mobile 9000 comes out.

JSanders 06-22-2008 02:56 PM

But keep drinking the beer.

how??? can you send videos too??

rachamphetamine 06-22-2008 08:30 PM

I vote for just rolling along with no contract. As another poster said, you'll get a better price on the phone.

I'm not sure why that user can't be more helpful. Video recording will come with OS 4.5.

juliohaynie 06-22-2008 10:16 PM

My vote is to wait as well. I got the Pearl on T-Mobile and three months later the Curve came out. Paid $449 + tax & shipping. OUCH!!!

Updated to OS 4.5, and then there's a video camera in the phone, I haven't attempted to sent yet, but I would presume one could.
