I'm currently using a Curve 8330 with Verizon. Do the newer Curves or Bold operate items such as (or especially) the browser faster? It seems that mine has a speed similiar to dial up. In addition do they (the newer ones) display htmlmessage and Java in the browsers?
Also consider that EV-DO shouldn't be working at a "dial up" speed as you stated. I think you should see what the coverage for EV-DO is like in your area if you consider switching to another VZW phone. You might experience the same thing as far as internet browsing goes.
