New to Blackberry, can't decide!
Am new to blackberry, have posted in the newbies thread, but not many go in there so decided to post in here
I'm hoping to get my first BB tomorrow maybe, I can't decide which phone would be best for me, between the the 9320 curve and the 9360 curve. The reason I'm dithering really is I'm going from a touch screen samsung, I have sight problems and was wondering which was the better screen? and the best overall phone?
Any help greatly appreiciated

The 9360 has almost double the res of the 9320
Screen info for the 9360 is 360x480 or around 245 ppi while the 9320 is 240x320 and around 165 ppi, and both have the exact same screen size (2.4") Screen is better on the 9360. Battery life and talk/standby is better on the 9320. They both have fm radio and typing is almost the same across the board. The screen size is the same, but with the 9360 taking it in resolution. The 9360 is also a touch smaller (overall size) 9320 has a bigger capacity battery though (1450 mAH) as opposed to the 9360 which is smaller at 1000 mAH.

I would suggest going for a bigger screen like Torch. But then again, if you can wait for another 43 days, then the L-series will launch and it's a full touchscreen phone, much like the Samsung you're accustomed to. The bonus is that it will run BB10, which is the latest and best OS out there to date.

It's me again, am itching to get on the BlackBerry bandwagon, can't wait for BB10, but am wondering if its worth my while to buy a refurb 8900 curve to get me started. One of my family has this phone and its a great little phone.
Or am I better waiting it out for BB10? which i think is going to be too expensive for me at first?

RIM has said it will be releasing a lower end (read lower price) BB10 device later in 2013. So you don't need to buy the more expensive first model in the early part of the year. I think your idea of buying the refurbished phone now and then the lower cost BB10 phone later is a good one, especially if you feel this choice will suit your needs.

Thank you for replying, everybody's so friendly round here
Yeah, I thought this was a good idea as that way I can be using the refurb one and be waiting for BB10 lower budget device and reading up on how well BB10 is going, can't wait for that, hope it does well for them. Also, with the 8900, I'm not sure if I can use BB App World on it or not? I know it has an internet browser similar to the samsung tocco light I'm using at the moment.

It's the start of a New Year tomorrow. Fresh year = fresh belief that RIM will do as they say. It's a completely different executive and once the platform is launched manufacturing new devices is easier. Hopefully good execution will turn cynicism to belief but hey, we'll know better in a month or so.

I really like this phone, and I got it for a decent price, $150.00. It retailed just a year ago for $500. Now is the best time to buy any top OS7 phones with BB10 about to be released.

The 9360 curve is a great phone though, and i believe it is the only smart phone that has a real radio, if you like listening to the radio that is.
i got the 9810 to get used to touchscreen as i aim to get the London when it comes out.
But try going to a shop and playing about with each model. shops often have working display units out
