    What's the main difference between a Bold and a Curve? i'm looking to upgrade from my iPhone 3g and i've narrowed it down to these 2 phones.


    obviously the new Bold is much pricier than the Curve.. am i really missing out on that much if i copped the latter? are there features Phone A has that PhoneB doesn't? Please let me know and i'll PM you with something kewl [​IMG]

    I would go with the bold (9700)

    but both phones are good IMO cant go wrong with any of the two

    i have the first BOLD and I think you should just get the BOLD 2.

    i don't need to go into specs, TRUST ME! A BOLD 2 is the way to go! [​IMG]

    im assuming youre on at&t...go for the bold 9700. i have the curve 8900 (refurb for $9.99) so i'm probably gonna use this phone until i get anotherupgrade on my at&t account. my curve 8900 is great with wifi, but when i'm out of a wifi zone, edge blows. go for the 3G 9700 plus you got thattrackpad

    The 8500 series SUCKS (that's the Curve you're talking about). It's basically an 8200 series with a trackpad and more updated OS. The Bold is thebest BlackBerry out. Everything about it is superior to the Curve from the RAM to the processor.

    blackberry phones are like bimmers, PAY ATTENTION TO DA NUMBERS

    anything under 9000 is unacceptable.

    only thing the 9700 got on the 9000 is the trackpad which isnt that great IMO.

    9700 also has a better camera, slightly higher resolution screen, and slightly better battery life.
