Default Blackberry Decision...

Please Login to Remove!

I'm looking at either getting the Blackberry Curve or the Blackberry 8800. Does anyone have any suggestions about which is the newer/better model? Lets hear some opinions and why you think each model is better--it will make my decision process much easier. I have narrowed my research down to these 2 phones, I just have to make the choice now. Thanks!

What are your needs? other than the stated differences above, and size, they basically have the same functionality.

i would recommend the 8310 with GPS, or the 8320 with WiFi, you decide which is more important to you.

But you can't get the 8310 on TMobile. You'd have to purchase elsewhere and unlock.

Like there aren't enough unlocked devices for sale in the buy sell trade section!

I like the 8800 but I also carry an 8100

I may be more confused than the OP!

Go for the 83xx sir!!

That will be my next BB after I get my girl one.

Buying the GF the curve first... techno-geek etiquette!
