    Is the Verizon version of the Curve 3G compatible?
    The picture on the website looks like no, but I heard someone say that it was.
    Thanks.

    The VZW Curve is an Ev-DO device. Whether that's 3G or not is probably another discussion, but I think it is 3G.

    There seems to be some issue over semantics, but the Curve is a Verizon 3G device.

    on the back of the verizon curve, on the bottom, underneath the battery door release, it says Qualcomm 3G CDMA.

    3rd generation wireless network. Newer and faster. See Wikipedia

    Technically yes...

    but compare the Curve 3G to a 3G Bold when it is released... there will be a big difference, IMO

    Exactly, the question is whether to wait (always the question with tech of course)?

    Wait for what? If the Bold comes to VZW, it will have the same data speeds as the Curve--Ev-DO. I assume all BBs will be rev 0 for a while.

    Why are you so sure of that? It was recently released news that Alltel has finished their transition to RevA for all of their network. As you know Verizon bought them and they themselves also are RevA for their air cards now. I also don't understand why Verizon indicates that the current MSM7500 chipset Blackberries are not RevA capable when an XV6800/6900 has the same chipset and is working very well with a RevA flash. I think you'll see Sprint push out RevA firmware for their BBs first with Verizon to follow. I guess we'll see.
