    i agree it doesnt feel 'cheap' at all and mine seems to be really strong and the battery life on mine is really good last me 2 day and half days it made out of the same material as the old curve the back on my old one was plastic too so it feels no different

    There were a couple of things that kind of took me by surprise when I first got mine but I did a search to find out the pros and cons. Any product out there will have people that it rocks for and others that don't like it.

    If you get the 9650, I hope it works out for ya.

    I am an experienced BB user and I don't find the Curve to be an entry level device.
    I had the Tour and had nothing but issues with the trackball and after 4 of them made the jump to the Curve 8530. I couldn't hold out for the Bold. I will probably end up with it though in March when I am able to upgrade. But I am impressed with the Curve. I like the 5.0 OS on the Curve MUCH better than the Tour's. I had to downgrade to the 4.7 on the Tour. I do not have any issues with the Curve at all. It suits me just fine. I highly recommend it.

    I also respect a person's opinion and no one should feel they can't post their opinion on this site. I didn't realize kwkid owned the rights to say what can and what can't be said on this site.

    I am new to BB, i picked up a BB 8530 on Sprint because of loss of job so that equaled loss of phone. No not lazy and worthless, hurt on job requiring back surgery. I had a LG Voyager through Verizmadic. And i loved it, probably the most reliable phone i have ever owned TILL NOW. I maybe be new but i am a savy tech GOD lol (not really). But i love it, i love the fact that their really isnt anything i cant do with it. But sadly now after messing with my wifes new bold, i am thinking of just shelling out for the 9650 2 months since i got my 8530 lol.
