    my Verizon 8530 is dead. I need a new phone this week. Which should I pick?
    BBerry 9360 on Verizon new
    switch to AT&T and get a BBerry Torch 9810 refurb

    Seems like the Torch is a better device, but is a refurb so only has 90 day warranty. is the torch a lot better?

    I am using this with BES work email and personal stuff too.

    Also.. any major differences between AT&T and Verizon other than coverage and the fact that one is GSM and the other is CDMA?

    Any opinions?

    Get something off eBay, refurbed or something that doesn't lock you into a new 2 year agreement.

    Something essentially to hold you over until the Z10 is released

    Yeah.. unfortunately I don't have that option. It is a corporate thing. So I have to get something directly from either AT&T or Verizon.

    Also, I probably won't be able to get a z10 or x10 until they are reduced in price to being free, which won't happen for a long time.

    In a previous post of yours, you said your company provides you with phones... Why not take a Curve from them?

    Yeah.. that is true.. so the options from my company are:
    Curve 9360 from Verizon (I'm on Verizon now)
    or switch to AT&T
    Torch 9810 on AT&T (refurb)

    If it were me, I'd take the Curve as it's new and you'll get the support moving forward.

    The 9900, 9850, and the 9810 have the best specs. I would go with the 9810 for better connectivity.

    I would go with the 9370. Just be careful about battery life. The fact that its a Curve and a world phone should work in your benefit.

    I may be biased, but I'd go with the 9810. It's a pretty good phone that, if I didn't so badly want to upgrade to BlackBerry 10, could probably last me a pretty long while. In fact, it's going to become my mother's phone once I get my Z10.
