Default Possibly Looking to Replace my Curve 8320

Please Login to Remove!

Are there any BlackBerry phone that has a similar, if not exact, keyboard "feel" and also uses a slim pouch w/ a magnet? The only reason why I have kept this phone for so long is because I really like the keyboard and the pouch and I don't know any other Blackberry like it. Only reason I want to replace is for a faster processor. Thanks!

There are many models available right now, most of which have slim profiles and leather pouches like you describe. Look around the BlackBerry website for more information.

I've always thought the 9900/9930 was the best BlackBerry ever. Bigger than your Curve, but slim and with a spectacular keyboard. In between your Curve and the large format 99xx is the 9700. Also a great model but with a keyboard more like your current device. Both are considerable steps up from the 8320.

9900

9700

Best bet is to go to a T-Mobile store and see if the keyboards are acceptable to you. Everybody has different tastes and the keyboard is a very subjective call.

I tried browsing the BlackBerry website but it doesn't really help. Thanks for your reply!

I definitely agree that I should be in T-Mobile stores since what I'm asking for is very subjective but you definitely gave me a head start on what model to start with. Thanks rambo47!!
