    Since I do not have the capability to listen to music or watch movies on my BB, that is what I would probably spend my time on if I got a Curve!

    For now, music only. I'll spare everyone listing my favorite 350 songs. I could see watching full length movies on flights if i had a bigger microSD card.

    As for games I use my curve to play Sudoku, I also use the media player to play my music... I really want that 4.3 OS upgrade so I can use the whole 8 Gigs on my media card.

    Entertainment use is rare for me. I might kill a bit of time with brickbreaker, but that's about it. When I start working out again, it will get some use for music.

    So far I just play BrickBreaker. Am having a memory issue with my BB so not a lot of space for more games. BrickBreaker keeps me well entertained.

    How do I not use it for entertainment? I don't own a PS2, PS3, Xbox, Wii, or any other gaming device, so Blackberry is the end-all be-all of gaming for me. I play Chess, Stratego, Brickbreaker, use it as my dictionary for Scrabble, I store my music on it, I make notes about new songs to download, I use it to maintain facebook and myspace, I read the news, I read sports, I check sports scores, I read magazine articles, I use Instant Messenger, I have the Espn icon right on my home screen, and I use it to read Wikipedia (hours of fun). That's not including how important BB is to making plans to go out, meeting up with people, and otherwise having a social life.

    Most of my BB time is spent on instant messaging programs such as nimbuzz while I'm at work.

    Very rarely to be honest. . .I'm too busy texting/emailing/messaging/surfing etc to be watching movies or playing games! I have a couple of games installed that I play sometimes when I'm. . .erm. . .otherwise indisposed and I occassionally listen to music if I'm travelling on the train or when I'm reading at night in bed but it's a small percentage of my daily use.

    I really like a game called BrainUp. It's a simple game, cheap and doesn't destroy your keyboard or trackball when you play. To describe the application, it is like the brain training game on Nintendo DS.

    reading my rss feeds... go Viigo!
