    Hi yall. So for about the last 2.5 years I've been using a curve 8310 and I think its really time to upgrade.. I love the phone but I can't deal with the sticky track ball and lag anymore.. A couple months ago my girlfriends 9000 had a software problem so she upgraded and I fixed her phone and I've been switching between the 9000 and 8310 since.

    So right now I'm torn between getting a curve 3g, waiting for the new touch bold(don't know if ill be able to wait), or making the leap to an android Inspire 4g (seriously considering it right now).
    I held off on my upgrade for months because I wanted to see what they'd announce at BB World and it was a HUGE disappointment when most of it was about the playbook... I love blackberry but they're taking way too long and its starting to get a bit frustrating.

    I know there's some new super phones coming out soon, should I just try to wait it?

    Pick up a phone on craigslist and save your upgrade for a newer release. The inspire will not get you through a day on a single charge and all bb right now are horrible. Or look at an atrix it is a great phone.

    Personally, I would wait for the Bold 9900. Depending on who your carrier is, you may be able to acquire it in just over a month. Also (I am not sure whether you are interested or not so please disregard this if the latter is true), the iPhone 5 will likely be released in September and may be worth a look. For me, upgrading just before a major hardware release would most definitely result in disappointment down the road, but to each their own...

    If you like Blackberry, I'd stick it out till the 9900 comes out. That phones looks great and I think it might be my first Blackberry.

    I'm am kind of in the same boat except mine is an 8330 on Sprint. I am currently waiting on the new Bold 9930. This phone will be similar to the 9000, but with a larger screen and it will have touchscreen ability. If you want to have the larger screen, your best bet will be to go with the up coming Torch 9810 on AT&T, it will be similar to the original Torch with better specs or go with the Torch 9850/9860 which will be an all-touch BB.

    Good advice and good article. I have thought about getting the atrix but I've heard too many people bash motoblur.. And I thought about getting an iphone 4 but I can't do that with the iphone 5 release so close...... I think the new curve or bold would be great but I'm getting impatient. Haha.. If they could just give some sort of expected release day or some other word it might make it easier.

    I'm torn between wanting the latest and greatest or just having a good, simple-er phone that does what I need. Haha... On my 9000 and 8310 I have a gps, music, and the browser works to get me the info I need (most of the time).. But then I get jealous when I see what others are doing on their smart phones.

    Yeah if you have been waiting all this time already, what is a couple more weeks or so? Should be out in August. (Hopefully)

    I have a line open and thought about getting one, but I have other priorities to take care of 1st.
