Default Currently w/8310... next upgrade?

Please Login to Remove!

I have had the Curve 8310 for about 18 months (at least). This was my first BB phone and have really enjoyed it.

I use it most for text, email, GPS (golf apps), and internet browsing.

Things that I would like to have that I don't...

- better/larger display
- wifi

I do not like touch screens. Trackball works fine for me.

What are some more recommendations for my next BB upgrade? I'm on AT&T here in the U.S. (have to remain with AT&T due to wife's need of the Ip4).

1) what's the future of the Curve?
2) is the Bold the better route?
3) are there upcoming releases to hold out for?
4) is OS6 going to impact me for my needs (listed above)?

I'm not in a rush but just want to make a good decision. Again, very pleased with the 8310 just would like an improved device. Thoughts?

9700 if you don't like touch screens. At least for now. Who knows what will be around the corner when you are really ready to do the deed.

1. Check the Rumors section for more info.
2. Only you can make that decision.
3. See 1 above.
4. Probably not.

Thx Dd.

I browsed through the rumors originally but will continue to monitor it.

Hoping some 8310 users who have moved on to upgrades/other models will weigh in.

Thx again!!

I understand your view on touchscreens but I hope you at least try the Torch in a store environment.

I tried one (Samsung) before I got the BB 8310. It just seemed like I was constantly cleaning the screen.

Maybe I'll give it a look in the store before I make any final decisions.

Thx for the input!
