    I am able to upgrade my Curve 8330 to what ever i want right now. I am looking at this Curve 2(8530) and so far i am liking it.

    What are some good things and bad things about the new phone.

    I see that some say it has a really short battery life. How short are we talking here?

    The battery life isn't as bad as led to believe, unless you leave apps running, wifi and bluetooth on when it isn't needed and being used, I can unplug my phone @ 0600 and still have 80% battery by 1800.

    Well that is good to hear... I hardly ever keep apps open if not using them on the phone. Dont use much bluetooth and when i do i am in the car and i always plug the phone in while driving anyways.

    That is good to hear... I am going to check out Verizon sometime this week and see what kind of deal i can get on it. I know they are around $49 but i am thinking i can get it cheaper.

    I have played with a few of em (we have them in our bes environment), Im more a fan of the trackball. It could be I have to get use to it but I used one for a week and although its a great device, I would rather a trackball over a pad
