    if you're happy with the Curve I'd suggest the 8530<but if you just wanna get up to date and spent the same amount of money go for the 9700>> you can get a used one on craigslist as low as 125.00

    9700 won't work on vzw. The Bold 9650 is the CDMA (Verizon/Sprint) version of the 9700. The 9650 has double the memory of the 9700 though. That would be my choice if I were in your position.

    Having owned both the 8530 and 9650 I can say hands down the 9650

    I would definitely go for a 9650 - it's supposed to get OS 6.

    Get the Bold 9650. It's getting the new BB6.

    Theres pro's and cons to each of the 4 BB's on Verizon heres them:

    Curve 8530 (what I have)-Its not glitchy, has good battery life, but won't get BB6

    Tour (idk model #)- Small Track ball, glitchy, bad battery life (friend has)

    Storm 2-Touch screen, I don't recommend.

    Bold 9650-Same as the curve for the most part, with some feel/look differences.

    You're two main choices are the bold and curve, if money isn't tight then get the bold, b/c its more than 100 dollars more, however it will be getting OS6 which is a good advantage. If you're on a budget get the curve, ik from personal experience that its a great reliable phone with good battery life and little to no glitches.

    9650 is the way to go! Unless you want a touch screen, then you want a 9550, OR if you are willing to change carriers, BETTER option touch would be the brand new 9800 Torch (coming 8/12 to ATT).
