    OMG i am freakin out! but kind of in a good way! I have only had my pearl for about 2 weeks now, and i think i am going to return it, and get a different phone! I am eligable for an upgrde on wednsday, and I didnt realize this until after I had recieved my phone. So I am going to pack it up today and return it soon!! OMG how will i go without it, even for a few days? I am sending back the 8100 pearl, and I love it so much. I am also very drawn to the curve, so im not sure what to get next. I love the keyboard on the pearl, but also I have never really had a problem getting used to keyboards, the day after I got my pear I was typing just fine on it, and I can from using a motorola rokr. What to do, Paerl 8120, or 8310 curve??? the curve looks tiny in pics, it is small right?

    The Curve is slightly larger than the Pearl, but not by much. I just recently switched from the 8100 to the 8310, and am soooo glad I did.

    You'll love either one, so I recommend checking them both out in the store.

    The Pearl is just under 2 inches wide, the Curve just under 2 and a half. So if size is your primary consideration stay with a Pearl, but from someone that has both the Curve is by no means bulky and the bigger screen is worth the extra size,

    I would call your local AT&T store and find out if you can return it there. Would make it much easier and quicker. Be sure to do a backup before you get rid of the 8100 - then restore the info to the new Curve. (hint)

    Goooooo with a Curve!!!! You won't regret it... (and I find that typing the Curve is so much EASIER!!) The only thing I wish my Curve had is that you can't change the color of the Trackball that would be fun.. but not a neccesity.. haha.

    I just called my AT&T store, and he said you're best bet is to do it online.
    Just send it back, get your refund, then do your upgrade online as well.

    ok... well thank you for asking! i cant not figure out how to delete all of my contacts out of my phone, or anythin else. do i HAVE to delete everything out of it before i return it, or can i just take out my sim card, and return it? I thoguht that it was their job to make the phone like new. But I have like callender entries in it that i dont know how to delete. Sorry so many questions, i just want to do everything perfectly.

    They should also be able to pull it up in their system if it was shipped to you by mail.

    Both phones are great. You can't go wrong with a berry.

    You don't have to clear out your phone, but if you WANT to for privacy purposes, go to options, security, general setting, push menu and choose wipe handheld.

    Good Luck!!!

    make sure you did this before returning the Pearl,
    especially with identity theft and everything.
