Default How does it fit?

Please Login to Remove!

I'm seriously considering of getting a curve but I really need to know how it fits and looks in the front pocket of your jeans. I'm coming from the sk3, which is pretty much a big, fat, ugly brick in your pocket. I don't want that to be the case if I get the Curve. Does it really buldge? Sorry for posting such a stupid question . It's really important to me though. Thank You

Are you male or female? How tight are your jeans?

Depending on the fit and size you can go from seeing how much change someone is carrying to hiding a brick in your pocket!

Fortunately enought I wore jeans today, so:

As a guy wearing lucky brand bootcut 181 jeans that fit properly it is almost unnoticable. Someone looking for it would be able to spot it when I was walking but standing still it is slim enough to disapear.

Someone like my girlfriend or one of those cool hipster guys who favors a tighter fit might not be so lucky though!

I moved from the Pearl to the Curve yesterday, and I don't use a holster, just place it into my left pant pocket and it's fine.

It's a little thicker than the Pearl, but not that much wider. Since it weighs less than the 8800, I'm good with it in my pocket.

I knew the case for the Curve wouldn't be out for a while, so how this phone fit in my pants pocket was important...

Fits great.

If size is an issue, I would recommend the pearl for you, but let me tell you, I had the pearl for 3 days waiting for my curve to come in and the full QWERTY keyboard is a Godsend! Realistically though, since you are coming from a sidekick, anything is going to seem small, so you will probably appreciate the full keyboard, I know I do

i came from a 700p and the curve feels like it weighs half as much and looks to be like 25% more thin. i kept my 700 in my pocket all the time and when i put the curve in my pocket i cant really tell if its there or not. the phone is very flat and not bulgy at all. it makes me nervous cause i cant feel it in my pants. <----- feel free to quote that

its a great phone, get it!

it fits fine in jean pockets though id recommend a case to avoid scratching up the screen.

i just got the OEM leather case with belt clip and it's perfect
