    Guess what everybody?!?!



    I'M GETTIN THE CURVE TODAY!!! woooooooooohoooooo I'm freakin stoked for this moment and I just wanted to share all of my joy with you. Gosh I'm so dang excited.



    I do have a few questions though. I did a full back up and I also backed up all my third party applications via Crucial_Xtreme's guide. The thing is, I'm going from a Verizon Pearl 8130 to a Verizon Curve 8330 and I have some model specific themes that are the Pearl's versions. So I backed up all the third party apps and it included the themes for my Pearl in there. Is it going to harm my Curve when I load all my third party apps (including the pearl themes) back onto my new Curve. I just want to make sure I do everything right, and if anybody out there has the patience and willingness to walk me through this process step-by-step, that would be greatly appeciated. Sorry, I'm just kind of OCD and a perfectionist! Any help at all would be fantastic



    Gosh I'm so stoked, I just love you all!!!!!!!!

    Yes sir, first, CONGRATS on the new device!! 2nd, you do not want to install the Peal themes onto the Curve. So, I'd delete the themes(hopefully you have the .zip) and re-backup the 3rd party apps. Let me know if you need any help. Just PM me, and we'll get it handled.

    Video recorder? On my Pearl I already had video recording capabilities. Is this not true for Verizon's OS for the Curve?

    I can give you a few pointers.

    1- The CURVE has a qwerty keyboard (that I'm sure you didn't know) so be prepared to tear it up with that bad*ss keyboard!!!

    2- The CURVE has a bigger, brighter, higher resolution screen so be prepared to get lost in that beauty!!!

    3- The CURVE has more onboard memory so be prepared to download apps at will and ENJOY them!!!


    4- The CURVE has a higher capacity battery AND it lasts longer!!!

    5- Welcome to the FREAKIN' club baby , yeah!!!!

    Ballin, CONGRATS!!!
    Now here's a tip- the enter key on the Curve!
    On the Pearl its last-bottom right. On the Curve, that same "enter" is a shift key. After you get Ur Curve, let us know how many times U hit the right shift.

    Congrats on the curve. You definitely made the right choice there. I have had my curve for over a month and have not looked back since I got it. Getting a BB was the best choice I could have made .
