On a seperate note, said youtube review complained that the bolds browser and was wondering your thoughts on this as the reason i'm geting rid of my n95 is because the browser is rubbish.
Anyway, any help/advice would be greatly appreciated.
Had the Bold since December after a year with the 2nd gen curve. It's better but I don't feel it is all what it was hyped up to be (as suggested in my avatar). 3G is still like a 56k modem (I was told it was like slow cable) so although the web browsing is faster than EDGE, it's still painfully slow, not worth it considering I have a laptop and I am on the net at work all day. Still glitchy and you can't have extra apps open or you have to pull the battery in order to reset it. Could be because of all teh apps I have on it (which I never use) Also with WIFI on, it sucks the battery dry before the day is over. I do like the big screen and I can type a little more accurately on this keyboard.
So unless you REALLY need to browse the web on your handheld, get the Bold. But if you have lots of internet access throughout the day and evening, save your money and get the Curve. IT's still good for email, messaging and SMS.
