Question Refurb 8800 or Curve?

Please Login to Remove!

Hey everyone! I am going to be upgrading my old RAZR to a BB next week (I HOPE!). I'm thinking about either the 8800 or Curve (through AT&T). I'm not a business user, but more into just email, music, and internet. Which BB do you suggest? Or ... do you suggest waiting it out for the BOLD? I'm really needing a subsidy from AT&T for the 2 yr contract, so I'm not sure if the BOLD will work. Any suggestions? Do BBs work well with music and surfing the web? Can you install Opera to them?

Thanks!

If you don't want a camera and will load the beta os 4.5, the 8830 is a more durable stylish phone. The Curve is less of a bussiness phone. The world edition is pointless unless you travel very often and it raises the price a lot.

If you want a small device go with the 8110. If you want a bigger screen and you type a lot get the 8310.

Had the 8830, now an 8330. Like them both, but the curv e gets the nod for smaller size, keys are spaced a bit for easier typing and definitely use the camera from time to time. I don't use it for music though, so can't answer that one.
