    currently have verizon and am aware of all the limitations they put on their phones, disabling certain features to make you subscribe to their services. it seems as though any of the devices would be sufficient to start out with but i don't want to be overwhelmed with features, so which one? i am eligible for an upgrade at the end of the month so is it the 8703 or the pearl 2? any and all help is appreciated.

    Before buying one, you have to decide, do you like suretype (Pearl), or QWERTY (Curve)?

    Answering that alone, will send you in the right direction...

    thats the thing. i've never had this type of device. i've been to the store to see how they feel but you can only be there so long before they think you're a weirdo. i'll more than likely go with which one initially has a better deal on it or at least close when the pearl 2 is out.thanks for all of your help.

    Remember you do have 30 days to return/exchange the device if you are not happy with it!!

    a "qwerty" keyboard is a standard keyboard...one key...one letter...

    If you are using Verizon, I would also consider the 8310. It doesn't have a camera, but it's a very nice phone with a full QWERTY keyboard, GPS, and a lot of other nice features. Sorry if this makes your decision even tougher.

    Hey deggyfresh,

    I also love SureType although I hated it when I first got it. However, after about 1 week, I found that I could type very, very fast on it.

    The Pearl 2, as you know, has SureType, but also has so many great, new features. Having said that, why don't you 'go for it.'
