I have been an owner of the 8100 and the 8130 with tmobile and now have the bold with att and let me say I love this phone . I'm sad it doesn't have uma wi-fi like tmobile curve :( but oh well. The keys are really nice and the spearks our loud and good quality. What also sucks is that rim doesn't give us ebough room for applications that on boarf 1gig can't be used for apps :( hopefully rims fixes this

The bold is my first smartphone. I wantewd for mainly 2 reasons, big screen and full keyboard.

I didn't even know what 3G was when I bought it. Overall I like it. Does everything fast and efficient. Only thing I'm starting to not like is the size. Sometimes its a hassle bringing it with me.

Imo on the size. Its still really thin and lightweight it fits into my pants comfortably and I have tight jeans too because that's my style but the bold came with a really nice belt clip unlike other blackberry and I use it all the time and can't evem tell its clipped on to me

i bought the Bold yesterday, i try the Bold and the Curve at the dealer and talk to 3 rep who own and used both of them, and they prefer the Bold over the Curve primaly because the CPU size on the bold is 600mhz and the Curve is 300Mhz

lot's faster for browsing and listening to movies or doing differents chores

ohh that they don't tell me, but as i lived in a fair big city roughly 35K living souls we have a 3G network , so i can't tell

and for the difference the Bold use the 3G network and the Curve 8900 use the Edge network

i can't speak for the 8100. being an owner of the 8800(pearl), which is a great phone, at times the bold does get better signal than the 8800. the bold, for the moment, is the ultimate blackberry. 3g, wifi and gps. just awesome...

if your talking about the curve 8900 it isn't 300mhz it's 512mhz. I don't know which curve your refering to.
