    Hi,
    I'm hoping today to buy a blackberry but am stuck between the blackberry curve 8310 and the blackberry storm 9500. I have found some good deals on these on ebay. My current phone has a qwerty keyboard which i love but I have an ipod touch so am sort of used to using a touch screen keyboard every now and then.
    Any suggestions/recommendations or anything else?
    Thanks

    Ive owned both and both are good devices. If you feel comfortable with a virtual keyboard then go Storm, I just couldnt get used to it, I like the physical keyboard.

    8310 has terrible app memory, and the storm is now pretty solid with its latest software... i would say storm

    I agree, the 8310 technology is nearly 4 years old. And possibly will NOT support a OS 5.0 due to memory limitations.

    +1 for the Storm. The BB 83xx is becoming rather old.. (still a great phone).. I just fear that os updates and whatnot will begin to trail off

    I'd rather get the curve if I was u the storm 1 click screen completely sucks and the device just isn't that great

    Yeah I agree that'd might be best to look into the Tour. I had a 8310 and it was a really nice stable phone, but you can't have too many apps on it cuz of the memory..
