    I was looking for imput to help me decide about an upgrade. Currently I'm using the Pearl 8130 and am starting to get bored you may say of all the problems I'm having or had with it. I was thinking about a Storm but I have herd that it has several bugs and whatnots. Any input would be greatly appreciated

    What's you're service provider. If you want to upgrade you may as well get the best that's out so it lasts you. Tmobile I say get the Javelin or 83xx series for the price. Verizon would be the Storm and AT&T would obviously be the bold. I'm only listing the 3 main providers in the states.

    I don't know what phones Bell Canada has to offer, but I assume they'd have a Curve. I don't see why a Curve wouldn't be a good upgrade option.

    What phones do they offer?

    why not just keep the pearl for a while and wait for the new phones to come out, that way you dont waste an upgrade.. the pearl is an extremely solid device maybe you can just upgrade the OS for now, so you can get the new phone feeling

    If your looking for a trip and some fun and NOSE (new os excitment, coined by another forums member) then definitely try out the Storm. it is a great and very able device, as long as you are comfortable doing leaked os updates. After updating and tweaking, these phones rock.

    Hey Jermoe- well i have a curve and very happy with it-and i agree with Ambz - it is a very solid device. But it all depends on what you prefer....and you dont have to upgrade at the moment. Take some time to think for sure about what you want with your next bb because you'll be with it for a while. Good luck with your choice!

    Well I will say that is some bad luck. Did they offer any other device besides the pearl?

    If I want to pay full price for any other phone I can get one. If I don't I'm stuck with the pearl
