    Best thing to do is go into the store and test out both. Some prefer touch screen and others prefer a full keyboard. I have the curve 8330 and I love it!!!

    Welcome to CB!

    Never fear asking a question, our addicts are always willing to help

    Storm v. Curve

    Well, imho, I would pick the curve. According to industry experts that I've personally spoken to, who have hands on experience with both phones, there would only be 3 advantages to the storm, and a (large number) of disadvantages to the storm, when compared to the curve. Now, I am partial to the curve, since it's my primary device, but I am simply communicating what I've been told about the storm.

    I'm sure that opinions will vary on this topic. But that is my .02

    Either way is really is a win/win. They are both blackberrys!

    Enjoy the addiction™

    well here is my problem.......

    I like the Screen And the Full Html Browsing on The Storm...

    But The Curve Does not Offer That....

    The storm also can hold 16 gigs The curve MAx's out at 8....

    Thats Really My only Issue at the moment with the curve....

    If it Helps...

    I use mine For Email...

    But I am a Graphic Designer And a Sound Engineer So I need a Good Clear Screen and a Decent Music Player to hear some of my clients work....

    So try out each for 30 days. They should let you do that.

    I had a Curve and graduated to a Storm with few regrets. Just as with any new thing there is a learning curve with the device. I use mine primarily to read messages with short responses so the touch screen is good for me. To be perfectly honest if I had to send a lot of emails I would probably grab a bb bold. He screen is awesome and it has a physical keyboard which is great for speed. All things being equal, the storm is a good device it just depends upon what your needs are and what compromises you are willing to make.

    I love my Storm and the now phone issues seem to get better every day. Heard a rumor that some time in January, Verizon will up date the OS again. Both seem like good phones. But the Storm just called out to me.

    I feel the need for the physical keyboard. Love my curve. You would be happy with either. Maybe both???

    I checked out both in the local VZW store and decided on the Curve.
