    I have a blackberry curve 9360 and im thinking about upgrading to the 9900. For those who have used both, do you think its worth upgrading considering the price difference?

    I don't know about the 9900, as I upgraded to the 9810 with the auto focus camera that the 9900 does not have. but the 9900 has a better keyboard.. trade-offs.. The OS7 is a vast improvement from the OS6.. runs smoother and faster. So any OS7 would be good.

    This will suffice me till the BB10's are out and a slider phone is available, as that's my next phone.

    Well thats the thing... the 9360 is a os 7 device, and it has even better specs than the 9780, so i really cant decide if its worth upgrading to the 9900.

    What are your wants in the phone.. if you already have a 9360 on os7.

    All I can suggest is to go try a 9900 if you can. The 9900 will be a little quicker, has a browser that rocks, and of course there's the touch screen that, once you use a bit you'll wonder how you lived without it. It's got larger keys, but shaped a bit differently than the Curve's chicklet keys. That also means the phone itself is a good bit bigger than the 9360, which some people mind, some people don't. We also don't know when a BB10 with a full keyboard is coming, so there's also that to think about if you prefer a full QWERTY phone. It all depends on how satisfied you are with the 9360 and whether or not you want something different with a little more zip.

    If Canadian carriers offer a free 14 day cooling off period like the UK, go get one and try it out.

    If you do I bet you wont take / send it back though.

    If you can then do it. It's BlackBerry's flagship phone. It's the top keyboard phone.

    It's also bigger. It has NFC tags

    I personally think that upgrading to a touch screen is worth it, there are so many time saving things that the touch screen on a 9900 or 9810 does for you that makes every day things faster. And I do not even type on the touch screen as I much prefer a physical keyboard for that. But I would not trade my 9810 with a large touch screen and slider keyboard for any phone.

    At work I have to use a Curve 3G, and I'm constantly trying to push on the screen now to do stuff :-/
