    I deciced to take the plunge and change my Javelin for a Bold.Its been 4 days so far and i have to say im very pleased.The only thing i miss at the moment is the size.The 8900 was a bit more cool looking where the bold is more business,but i'm loving the slightly larger screen and having 3g on the move is great for surfing.As for the other differences......well there isnt really,i still enjoy wifi and a decent camara,all my apps work fine and the key board is so much easier to use.All in all i think its a more solid phone and so far so good

    You're lying... The camera stinks... and the size in my hand is much more noticeable between my curve 8900 and my 9000. I prefer my bolds keyboard and screen, but the 8900's memory, camera and size. but I love my leather back (on the bold!).

    Regardless, welcome and the bold is the best phone out there!

    Hate the 8900 keyboard. Bold is by far the best I've used.

    I like the keyboard on the Bold better than the 8900 as well. And the speakers on the Bold kicks buttocks!

    i wished they kept the javelin as the real name for the curve instead of as an internal codename. It seems so intuitive and lively.The bold on the other hand is perfect. i have had no size compliants like many people do. I have great digital camera so a camera on my bold makes no difference to me. texting on this dynamic keyboard is fantastic. the curve 8900 and the bold 9000 are two opposites in the blackberry spectrum. they are directed towards two different people. The curve 8900 is more consumer oriented. The bold is the executive blackberry.

    No argument regarding the Bolds camera. It does stink.

    i also just switched from a 8900 to a bold a few days ago and i am loving the bold, the size isn't a issue to me and feels as the build is a lot better than the 8900. mine doesn't have the loose battery door problem like i've read
