    My question is what are the differences between them? Other than the most obvious full qwerty on the curve. My girlfriend can get the pearl for free or the curve for $150. I guess the most important thing would be will she notice a difference other than the keyboard? Thanks for your input.

    I think the curve has more memory also. But it comes down to is the key board and size factor.

    I'd skip both and try for a 8520 and get it unlocked. Way more ram and way faster processor than the Curve...

    except you did not notice he is on verizon and needs a cdma device hence the xx30 series numbers.

    the curve does have more memory and is def worth it for apps. if i were you go to a local best buy they have much better deals than a vzw corporate store and they can do an upgrade right there.

    At bestbuy you can get a Storm or Curve 8330 for only $100 the tour i beleive is also $100 or 150 at best buy.

    or if she is up for 2 year discount go online to do it because on New Cell Phones, CPO Cell Phones, Prepaid Cell Phones, Cell Phone Plans - Verizon Wireless it is only $50 for a 8330 curve

    true my bad about the vzw but he's still looking for a cdma device. although the 8520 is pretty sweet i think it will be a few months before the 8530 is released.

    as an edit to my other post i misread vzw idk how lol but what region of canada are you in? because on the telsus website it shows you can get the curve for $30 bux lol
