    Hi everyone. Giving the Blackberry the name CrackBerry can be completely justified in my opinion. I still don't have a BlackBerry but I am completely addicted to everything related to this product. I'm browsing the internet every day for pictures and information about things that I already know about the BB just so I can continue to feed my obsession about having my very own some day. But the good news is I'm officially getting one in March. I'm with MTS is Canada, and one of the reps told me the CDMA Curve is coming in March so I have a little problem. I'm obsessed with both the Curve and Pearl, I know people with both, but I can't decide. Can someone please convince me which one to go with.

    You really should weigh the pros and cons on your own. The Curve owners will try to convince you one way, and the Pearl owners another. Take a look around and see what features are most important to you - full keyboard, size etc.

    I find it funny to be an addict and not own the phone I would say go with the Curve bcuz of the keypad.

    Ya I was definitely thinking about the keyboard. So do they both pretty much have the same features? It seems like it to me. What's the deal with the GPS. My buddy just got the Pearl, which has GPS options, but we couldn't figure out how to use it. There was no icon or anything like that.

    Agreed!! for the same reason. I started with the Pearl and after 3 weeks I still didn't like suretype so I exchanged. Plus screen was too small.

    well, I do have both~started with the Pearl and I'd say the screen size and full keyboard is what made me switch over to the Curve.

    I've decided to keep my pearl for weekend trips and such because its a nice "put in your pocket and go" bb.

    Good luck on your decision, you really can't go wrong either way.

    I like my Curve because of the keyboard and its a nice size to hold when on a call.

    However, I wish the Curve trackball could be custom colorized like the Pearl's trackball can.

    Im also saying go with the curve, not just because I am a curve owner but the freedom of having a full size QWERT keyboard makes a world of difference as opposed to the pearls keypad. Also the curve feels like a small phone when you are holding it, either to write emails or talk on the phone. Yes the pearl is small and does the smae thing but there is something about it that I dont like, maybe its to small. I had a friends pearl for a while before I went out and bought the curve and I am glad that I got the curve over the pearl

    Hopefully the Curve comes in early March then because I don't think I can wait any longer for a BB. If it's not going to show up in March then I'm gonna go with a Pearl. Thanks.
