    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?

    Yes, the newer devices use a much improved OS and they all have
    faster processors.

    Everything AG said above is correct.

    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.

    Remember though that the new curve 8900 and the bold are not available on Verizon at this time however.

    That's true but I think the OP was speaking in general.

    Also depends on which OS vesion you have installed on your BB. Some of the features (such as HTML e-mail) are a part of the 4.5 OS.

    I'm using OS 4.5 and I may have EVDO disabled. I remember disabling it on my old Razr to preserve battery life and don't recall if I did it with my BB.

    Well dang, I was hoping the new Curve was available. I'll probably wait as I sure like it.

    On another topic (let me know if I should start a new thread)....

    My work has an Enterprise server, do I need to subscribe to the Entrprise plan to get my work e-mail ? When I try to add the e-mail address via BIS it doesn't ask me for a pin, nor will it configure.
