    Hey guys,

    I am going to be getting my BB in about a week. Pretty excited about it. However, I am trying to decide between the curve 2 (8530) or the bold (9650).

    They both seem similar to me, but maybe someone here can give me their opinion on which I should go with.

    Thanks in advance.

    9650

    Will definitely get BlackBerry 6, and be able to run it efficiently.
    Better screen resolution
    Better camera, with flash

    Definitely go with the bold! You will regret that you didn't once you become familiar with blackberry and realize the Bold is a better option.

    I own both of these phones. If you want your phone to be on a battery charger all day long like the moto droids, get the 9650. If you want a phone that just works.. Period.. Go with 8530

    Bold! You are going to want more memory and being able to get OS 6 on your phone when it comes out for more phones than the Torch. I only wish the phone was available when I got my 8530.
