    I'm having trouble deciding on which model of Blackberry I should get. I'm going to use it mainly for texting and maybe to check my e-mail. I'm still in high school so I want something that's cool and has a camera. Also, I like the size of the Pearl but I like the full qwerty keyboard on the Curve. Is suretype as good as the full qwerty?

    Suretype is a breeze once you get used to it. The trick is to not look at the screen. My suggestion- play with both of them at the store and decide that way which one you like more. Using forums to make a decision like this is going to drive you nuts with the amount of Pearl> Curve> Pearl> Curve responses you'll get.

    curve curve curve! sure, the pearl is small, but the curve still basically fits in the palm of my hand.
    i, too, am in high school (well...i just graduated...but close enough!) and the curve was the right decision for me. i love the big screen. and, the look is more "blackberry", i think.

    I had the Pearl for about a month before switching out to the Curve. Curve has a better hand fit, more memory and a full keyboard. I'd suggest going to the store to play with each of them to see which one fits your needs the best.

    If I were on AT$T I'd go for the Curve as they're both $99 after rebates.

    I decided to get the Curve 8310 because it's only $80 at Radio Shack.

    I think the only way for me to use the Curve is to cut my nails; which I'm not to inclined to do. On the other hand, I do want the Red Curve whenever it comes to Sprint.... decisions decisions.

    Deciding on a model! Huh, I vote for the one with the most internal memory. With apps a running and memory leaks. The more the better. =8')

    I highly recommend the Curve, and I love mine... but for your situation, a Pearl may be logically better.

    SureType is a breeze to txt on, etc. You probably don't need the larger screen and more onboard memory.

    There is plenty of info on CB to help you make your decision. Welcome to the addiction!
