    I am new to a BB device and want to buy the Curve this month. I really am looking forward to having web access while on the road w/ my phone(travel quite a bit). ??? is how fast is the speed of the internet applications. I guess I have nothing to compare it too since I have a POS LG phone now. Does moving between web pages seem fast/slow/just right???

    Also, if I dont need access to work e mail on my Curve do I still need the $29.99 data plan to get web access?

    You need a data plan for web access. The speed is adequate for it being on a phone.

    You need the data to get the web. But, I can tell you that it's worth it. 3G means uber fast. I had the Voyager for a month before I went to the Curve. It doesn't even compare when it comes to load speed. The Curve kicks!

    Yes the speed is okay, and yes you have to have the data plan for web access.

    cant wait, my NE2 comes due in a few days. Time to step into the Curve. The one thing I am a little worried about is just being intimidated by all these new acronyms and tech.(smart phones) that I dont know a whole lot about other than what I have read. Buts it different reading vs. using. I hope its easy

    In my opinion, you will notice a big difference between a standard phone and a smartphone. A good difference, I hope!
