    I just got rid of my 9330 a few days ago.
    My first one was a 8530, but my mother had a Pearl for Sprint when it first came out years ago & then a Curve 8330 so i was really no stranger to them haha.

    It seems like everyone had a Curve 83xx. That phone was a beast. I don't think there was ever a phone built as tough as the Curve 83xx, nor will there be a phone as tough as that phone.

    I dropped that thing half a million times and it still worked years later after I gave it to a younger cousin.

    Picture taken with my 9930... All power on except for the 8700. The more recent ones, 9630, 9650, & 9670 all got traded in for buyback money.

    I started with the CUrve 8330, but I do have an old 8830 or older kicking around somewhere that I acquired.

    I can't even remember where my 8330 went, I think I sold it.

    I dropped my curve and it cracked the housing all the crap, it still worked flawlessly, I switched to another 8330 shortly before I upgraded just because the phone was free and the cracked housing was annoying, lol

    Here's my old Curve 8310. It's on the 5th trackball/ring combo and desperately in need of a 6th ring. I think the Scotch tape strips give it a touch of the nerdy, hardcore user vibe. The chipped icons off the back & menu buttons just add to it. It powers on and works as long as you don't have to scroll . Since then I have had a Torch 9800 and my present 9810.

    My 8310, never mind its looks it still functions perfectly once the trackball is inserted.

    A selection, from left to right - R900,7290,8700,8800,8320,8900,9780. There's a box under my desk with no fewer than 20 of those R900s but I don't have a single charger to test whether any of them actually work or not...

    I agree, I had/have an 8330 and it is a tank. I will also say that my 9930 seems darn near as tough though. I've dropped it a few times on some very hard surfaces and never an issue.

    Been with BlackBerry for 10+ years now and will be until they pry it out of my hands. Started with the 8100 followed by the 8330(solid as a rock) then the 8900 came into the picture followed by the 9000(another solid device),then we moved to the 8530 and a 9300 for a while until the 9700 which I truely loved until it was stolen. Right now I am using the 9310 as a fill in until BB10 launches. #blackberrybychoice #blackberryforever

    I'm cleaning my office getting ready to move and I was digging through my "tech box" (box full of gadgets and chords). I found an old faithful. This started my love for BlackBerry.

    Do you have any old BlackBerries in your "tech box"?

    Unfortunately I sold my older berry's to get the upgrades so all I have left is my trusty 8900 which I keep for nostalgic reasons,lol! My first Blackberry was a Tmo gold 8320, I absolutely was hooked after that, I sold it when I went switched to Sprint and ended up with a burgandy red 8330, man those were the days spending a day during the week cleaning your trackball so it would scroll better! Here is my list of berry's since 2007 through the various changes with providers Tmo,Sprint,ATT and finally Verizon: 8320-8330-8820-8900-9000-9630-9650-9700-9800-9900 and 9930.

    I have to agree with you, the 83xx series could handle anything! I once dropped my 8320 on the train station floor running to my train. It flew apart but everything kept ticking once I put the battery back in!

    I started out with the pearl 8130 cdma, then bought the 9700 outright on Telus, then switched to windmobile for the 9900 and have been hooked since the pearl. Yeah, I didn't have funds at all for older blackberry smartphones but had the chance to toy with them all back in the day.

    my 8320, 8820, 8900, 9000 and 9700!

    This doesn't include my Pearl 8100 that my friend lost, or my black and white 9780s.

    I now use a 9810 and a 9900 and my PlayBook.


    After I left my Sidekick 2, I went BlackBerry and won't be switching to anything else as long as RIM exists!
