    I am sad. I had to do it. I took my pearl back and traded in for the curve. I loved my pearl but I just couldn't see the screen very well. I was afraid to do it because the pearl worked so well and had no flaws. I hope the curve is the same. Anyway, now I have to learn some basics again. sigh.

    I did the same thing. Though not for the screen size, it was those keys. They weren't working out for me. So I hurried and traded my Pearl in with one day to spare before I was stuck with it for 2 more years.

    Best decision EVER. I love my Curve. Have no regrets what so ever. Love it!! And it didn't take long to learn it either.

    When you get use to Curve, you will say: "Why did I ever have Pearl!"...

    The pearl is smaller, with the suretype keyboard, where the curve is a bit larger, and has a normaly qwerty keyboard on it.

    Actually, these photos and descriptions would provide a better idea:

    BlackBerry

    It shows the pearl and curve side by side.

    I have been a Suncom customer now for about 7 years here in South Carolina and when I purchased my BB Pearl the 8100 is the ONLY BB they offered. Naturally when upgrade time came I used my credits threw in some bucks and came out with my new Pearl BB. The suretype keyboard took me about two weeks and TONS of patience to learn. I figured I was stuck with it for two years I was not about to go back to a normal cell phone. LOL. Now I wish I had waited on Suncom to get the Curve instead. The good news is that Tmobile purchased Suncom and if I am patient for the next couple of months we all might get a new upgrade from Tmobile. Guess which model I want??

    I patiently waited on my work to rid me of my 7105. Couldn't take it any longer so I went on my own plan and got my Curve. Best move I ever made! Poor CDMA customers, no curve for you!

    Hi everyone. I have had my pearl 8100 for about 7 months and I just upgraded to a curve on tmobile. Mostly because of the keyboard. I am a fast typer but the 8100's keyboard slowed me down. I have my curve now and I dont know how I lived without it!!!!!!!! Its my baby!!!!

    So basically the pearl and the curve are the same? Except for the keyboard and size?

    Some of the menus and options are a bit more well done, as well. It's the small things that I noticed. But, yes, keyboard and 2MP camera are the only 'real' differences. Oops, forgot WiFi...don't use it, so I forget about it easily.
