    Hey Guys,

    I've had a Curve 8330 from Telus for about a year now. They have given me a great deal on a new Berry (Basically Free), as I have quite a few services with them.

    I need some suggestions on which one to choose.

    I need a durable phone, as I work in Retail but also in shipping/receiving. No Touch-Screens (No Torch ) as I would kill it like most of my co-workers with the iPhone (two of them have killed/scratched the phone working in the same environment).

    I am thinking Bold right now, or the Curve 3G. I will also purchase Telus's $7 replacement warranty.


    OS 6.0 Capability is a plus, as well as HSPA Network.. No more Telus CDMA for me.

    Both of those phones are pretty durable. I think what it would come down to is size. Do you prefer the smaller Pearl, or the bigger bold?

    I prefer Smaller, but I do want a full keyboard for sure

    Basically any Blackberry in an Otter case would be indestructible. I would vote for the bold.

    Yea, just get the 9700 on telus, with an otter case. It basically encases it in a block of plastic and foam, like Telus' MiKE phones.

    +2, but I use the Commuter. I've taken it on missions and in the field and haven't had issues yet. Can't go wrong with the Defender.

    It sounds like the 9700 would work good for you with a nice case like above said.
