    Does anyone know if Verizon plans on offering a Blackberry Curve that will work Globally?

    I've gotten conflicting information from VZ and haven't seen anything posted anywhere.

    Thanks

    None of the Curves they have are Global. The Bold and Storm 2 are global.

    Yes I am aware they don't have it now...the question is does anyone know if this is in the works?

    Highly doubt it since none of the Curve phones have been.

    +1 agreed with Supermario. There never has been a global Curve. I doubt there are any Curves in the works since they just released the 9330.

    Seeing how the Curve is an entry level/consumer model, I can't imagine it advancing to the status of a world phone, seeing how they want to sell their more expensive world phone models.

    I know people love to dump on the curve. I personally would pay MORE for the curve than the bold. It is 25% lighter and the keyboard is much better.

    ao227 - I guess this is why they make different models for different people. Persoanlly I like a little heft to my phone and I find the Bold keyboard to be far superior to the Curve, but again - just my opinion.

    As far as a world-capable curve. I would expect that once Verizon has their 4G LTE network rolled out the 4G curve will probably be a world phone since LTE uses SIM cards. I know it is probably just going to be for the data side but if they are putting a second radio in there anyway, maybe it will be usable on GSM networks. Maybe not.

    How is everyone dumping on the Curve? It's the entry-level model now. Bold is a higher end device. In my experience Curve took a huge hit from 83xx to 85xx: it's flimsy and cheap feeling. Hopefully that's not the case with 93xx, but I doubt it.

    I don't this that RIM would make a Curve world phone. It is an entry level phone, and they want to keep it cheap to buy. Plus most people that buy a Curve are not interested in global roaming. So no. The Storm 2 and
    Bold have that covers and there is no need for the Curve to be a world phone.
