Default difference between models

Please Login to Remove!

I am trying to figure out the differences in models of the curves.

I know that each carrier has different models, but what is the difference? Mostly I want to know because I was looking into downloading EQO and have every other model curve except the 8330. They also have most Blackberry models as well.

Is there anyway that I'll be able to install EQO onto my curve?

The best way to compare models is to go to a Verizon store and check them out -- hold them in your hand. Besides that, you can compare models on the Verizon Wireless website, and on the BlackBerry website. This page last the features of each model listed.

BlackBerry - PDA - BlackBerry Handheld Devices at BlackBerry.com

If you want to compare all the Curve models, you can do it here:
BlackBerry - BlackBerry Curve

Thanks for the quick response. I guess what I really wanted to know was about EQO and the curves. Why the 8310 & 8320 were listed as compatable but not the 8330.

As I look around, I'm seeing that Verizon isn't listed on any of the sites that have messangers (ICQ, MSN, AOL). Maybe the real question should be about Verizon capability for the other messanger services.

JiveTalk works on Verizon and is very popular on this forum. Or now it's called BeeJive IM since the latest upgrade. I use it -- works great on my device. I also noticed on the Verizon homepage on my device, there is a link for Mobile IM. It uses SMS instead of data. BeeJive uses data. If you do a lot of IMing, you'd need an unlimited SMS plan. I think IM + also works on Verizon, but it's more expensive than JiveTalk. There is info about both programs in the Aftermarket Software section here and both have free trials.

The thing with BeeJive IM (JiveTalk), at least when I bought it, is that they offer 2 licensing structures. They offer a Device license (good for one phone only) and a User License (which is transferrable).

Get the User License. What's $30? When you upgrade your phone, you'll be glad you got the User License.

That being said, out of all the IM Clients I've tried, BeeJive IM is the one I always come back to.
