    o my gosh....you guys have me so excited.....

    too bad i'm not getting mine for a few more weeks (just paid rent today)...i would have held off for this phone though

    in 2 weeks, it will be mine and my partner she will have the 8830....

    SWEETTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT
    Good choice on the rent...Last I checked it was a lot cooler to have a house with a POS phone than sleeping in a cardboard box w/ a blackberry...just my $.02

    Noob here looking for help..

    I am not currently eligible for the New Every 2 discount but only the annual discount. Do you have to be eligible for the new every 2 discount in order to be eligible for the $100 discount for the data plan?? In other words should i be paying...

    $319.99 - $50 MIR = $269.99 or
    $319.99 - $100 data plan discount - $50 MIR = $169.99

    Might be a deal breaker for me. Thanks in advance.
    If you are currently enrolled in the NE2 program but are only eligible for an ANNUAL UPGRADE (not the standard 20 months) then you would forefeit the NE2 credit ($50 or $100) as well as forefeiting the advanced device credit(adding the REQUIRED data pkg). Primary lines $39.99 and higher get $100 advanced device credit and secondary lines get $50. If you are doing the annual upgrade you only get the 2yr contract price. No addt'ls. You would be paying in your example $269.99.

    My Curve left from the warehouse in West Chester, PA.
    Uh Oh, mine had left but now mine is back in PA. Unexplained delivery exception. It is going in the wrong direction...heading back to the warehouse instead of going forward to me.

    btw, I am not "staying up all night to track my package"....I have a 5 month old baby

    Oh I knew this would happen. I just bought a silver 8830 last month thinking as usual Verizon would take forever to release the phone, and here it comes.

    Is there any way I could trade it in before a month has passed or get the phone without having to pay full retail price? I'm doubting it, but figure its worth asking.

    Ok, sorry for the double post, but I just realized that Verizon has the 30 day return policy. Now I don't know what to do...could I, theoretically, return the 8830 on the 9th (29 days after I got the 8830) and order the Curve offline?

    Even so, I'm really confused on what to do. I like the 8830 a lot, and I'm going to be studying abroad in England next summer, so I will probably need a world phone then, but I really want a cameraphone! I don't know what to do, but I hate the blue lighting on the silver 8830...maybe I should just switch to a red one?

    Can someone help me!? Thanks!

    well you can bring it back if its only 29 days but if your going to be in england then you might need a world phone and just change the keypad but i dont really know i never had a blackberry lol

    It depends on how long you will be abroad. If it is just for the summer, why not pick up a cheap GSM phone for using abroad. That way, you can use the Curve now and have it again when you return to the US. If you are going to be abroad for a longer time, then it may be best to keep the 8830 world phone.

    My husband had the world phone and it is a nice phone but imho, the curve is better. The curve has a better keypad , a camera for pics and video, MMS (8830 does not do MMS), louder ringtones, and a slimmer profile.

    Btw, if do return the 8830 make sure you within the 30 days. If you are even a day late, you may not be able to return the phone. Sometimes they can be real strict about that. btdt on a phone one time.

    And you did this today? Great! Where in the US are you exactly? Perhaps you're in an area that seems to be more prone to giving it out.

    I live in the Midwest and apparently they're easier to get around here, but as I'm not personally ordering mine, I won't know until later in the day if ordering is possible.

    Yes I did this at 10:15am today! (May 2) I live in Morris County, NJ.
    I may also note that the nicer you are to the reps (though some dumb as dirt) the nicer they are to you. Didn't have to argue for anything! Good Luck!

    Talked to my rep at Verizon Wireless store in Pittsburgh. Gave him the sku code and he was surprised that it came up. He placed my order and told me to expect it tomorrow by FedEx. Told him to call me if there are any problems. He told me my price would be $69.99 with all rebates and new every two. I have no idea how he got that rate (may be a B2B rate)--but that's my story and I'm sticking with it!

    Just called Verizon, the rep said the phone is not in the database yet and she cant sell me the phone yet. I asked her to run the SKU but would not because the phone is not active in the database yet.

    I tried at least!!!

    I am in the Wichita, Kansas area!!
