    I should have my Blackberry Curve in 5 days and I couldn't be more excited. I love my iPhone and all but I need something that can handle email like a champion. Plus I can still use it as an iPod Touch...which isnt a bad deal.

    I decided on getting a curve. Got it used, but it allows me to not have to buy into a new 2 year contract versus something like the Bold...which is what I really wanted, but having no blackberry experience whatsoever I figure this is a good step before I bump my contract and my data package.

    I spoke with a rep at ATT and she said that since I was buying a phone without contract I can run my blackberry off of my iPhone 1st gen. data package ($20 data plus text messaging). Is that true or will I have to step up to the (Blackberry $30 data plus $20 for unlimited texting). She mentioned that if I didnt want enterprise email I should be good to just SIM swap. I don't need enterprise email...I just need to have it fetch emails from my 3 POP accounts for work.

    I'm already addicted and I don't even have my phone yet. Plus I have to wait till BeckyMae is accepting orders again to turn this curve into some sort of sparkly neon color (green or blue).

    I'm super pumped about this. I keep checking USPS to see if its been processed yet. I might get it earlier than expected its shipping from closer than I thought.

    We will see. I'm always open to trying new devices. The lack of mac connectivity is the only reason that I really put off trying a blackberry out. I had a treo before my iPhone. I heard there is a mac desktop manager right around the corner so I am holding my breath for that to push me even further into the blackberry addiction.

    Welcome to CB...I myself am just starting out on BB...and on Mac...

    PocketMac is wonderful, and syncs beautifully with bb and mac. I don't know any better...as I have not used the windows based sync programs...so for my needs, it is more than sufficient.
