    Well I was in a contract with AT&T and unable to upgrade so I called and managed to get my cancellation fee waived with the promise that I was going to be signing back up once they did so. I never thought it would work but it did. So now I am looking for a new phone as my previous phone was a Razr, that I got after selling my Iphone 2G on ioffer.com for $269 not bad considering I paid $300 a year ago and it was a refurb. So as a past 8700 user I really enjoyed my time as a blackberry user and wish to return but have no idea which model would be best. Listed below are the models I am looking at.

    1. BlackBerry Curve 8310 Titanium $49.87 w/ 2 year contract (Sams Club Deal)
    2. BlackBerry 8820 $199.87 (Sams Club Deal)

    I am thinking the Curve considering it is only $49.87 can't really beat it!

    The Curve is a great device. I don't think you'll be disappointed either way.

    are you a business user? the 8800 series is more popular with business users. the curves are more popular with social users, although either device is versatile.

    The Curve is great and if you order it off of Amazon you get it for free and you get a rebate in the mail check it out.

    I have had both. The curve is cool, but I love my 8820! The wi-fi if super-fast, and to my knowledge you can use it when bis is down, but I'm not 100% sure. The keyboard is also much easier to type on as well and is also better than the curve for one- handed typing. But what I like the most is the look of it. Have you seen it??? Also, it feels a lot more solid than my curve as well. If you use a phone camera a lot than the 8820 is not for you. I almost didn't get it because of that, but at $65, I couldn't turn that down. Best money I have ever spent! I'm not a businessman, so I can't offer a business view on them. But you should try both yourself.

    The 8820 was alluring to me, but I am purely a social user (a teenage girl, in fact!) and I really didn't need something as sophisticated as the 8820. So, the curve suited me just fine.

    Do you want a camera? That can make your decision for you right there, because the 88xx series does not have cameras. I would go with the Curve. I have a Pearl but I've never heard anyone say too much bad about the Curve. I would have bought it but they didn't have it for Sprint when I bought my BB and I love SureType.

    Well I tested out the Curve at Sams at they are the ones that had it for 49.87, but I just couldn't deal with the fact that it was on EDGE! So after much consideration I went to the Verizon store and it was $149 however after my state employee discount it was only $100 and it is the Curve (3G CDMA) not to mention I get another 20% off of my data plan and 15% off my monthly contract so I can't complain. It is good to be back!

    Congrats on the new Curve

    Well yes I broke my promise but, I never said I promise, so to be honest I said I was looking at setting up a new account. They were the ones that were generous enough to allow me to make a choice
