Default Decisions, decisions...

Please Login to Remove!

Got the Bold 9900 about 3 weeks ago and picked up a Curve 9360 yesterday... I have about 5 days left to decide which one to keep as my 30-day return period on the 9900 is fast approaching...

The problem is LOVE them both!

The deciding factor may be that the 9360 has UMA and the 9900 does not. Coverage at my home is spotty at best and I pretty much need UMA...

The 9900 has that awesome and larger touch screen but it's also bigger and heavier. The battery drains faster on it and while it does have a faster processor than the 9360, I am not seeing any difference at all between the 2... The 9360 is just as snappy and fast.. I am not a power user so others who are may notice the processor speed difference...

The 9360 is small, lightweight, and has UMA ( a big deal for me)

I love the 9900 and I love the 9360..

Tick-tock I must decide which to keep.. At this point I am 80% sure I will be keeping the Curve 9360 and returning the Bold 9900...

Keeping the Curve represents the smaller investment right now. If you decide later that you just cannot live without the Bold and you go out to buy one at retail, you won't be abandoning the same investment if you did it the other way around. Keep the Curve.

Thanks, Rambo.. I like them both and think that no matter what I decide a part of me will wish I had kept the other.

They are both awesome in their own way. They both have things I like and dislike. I do however think RIM hit a homerun with both of these devices..

UMA will probably rule my choice at this time.

Service at home (or lack thereof) will become a major factor in a very short time. No device is 100% perfect, but the Curve sounds like a slightly better fit for you at this time.

True! Another factor for me is that since I retired I peddle my bike like a madman. I go 30-50 miles a day and the 9900 barley fits in my seat pouch. I know this sounds like a lame dislike but the the Curve fits easily..

UMA is rumored for the 9900 in Nov but we all know how that goes...

Convenience is NOT a small thing. It's all about how you use your device.

Hey Lunkhead, can you post a picture of them both sidexside?

That would be kind of hard since I don't have a camera except for what's on the phones...

I am 99% sure I will be returning the Bold 9900 on Saturday... Maybe once UMA / wifi calling is available for it, I will pick it up again....

Those of you with 2 PIN's for me, the one I sent yesterday is the Curve I will be keeping....
