I LOVE it ! I'd like a higer spec phone but as pay as u go this was a bargin, big up on the 8520,except for the camera ( but I'm a photographer so no phone will please me !) 9300 or an iphone was a tough choice but not having to run a contract won for the BB, and I've tried my mates iPhone, I ve got hearing probs and tinnitus and the BB music player is better by far IMHO.

I've had this phone for 6 months now. It is nice looking, solid, and a great unified messaging device. I set up three e-mail accounts, Facebook and Twitter and got instant notifications when something was going on on any of them. Typing is a pleasure thanks to the legendary Blackberry keyboard. However, I speak English and French and I haven't figured out yet how to type using French characters (accents). Keep that in mind if you use more than one language. The picture quality is crappy. It doesn't bother me, I rarely use the camera. I don't understand why someone would want to take pictures with their phone anyway, unless you catch your best friend's girlfriend making out with some other guy. The feature I'm most unhappy about is browsing. For 1 in 5 webpages I get the message "Insufficient Memory. Page is too large to load." and then the browser closes. It's ridiculous. The exact same page loads without problems on Opera Mini. I don't understand how RIM would miss something like that. The loading times are not great at all. I mostly use my phone to browse, so that for me is a reason to switch. I'm sure that someone who doesn't need to use the camera and browser will be more than satisfied. Oh, one more thing... No one sane person should sign a 3-year contract for this phone. I got it for $250 from Kodoo, no contract, unlocked it for $10 and it's been working like a charm. If you want jailtime with a provider, do it for one of the latest and greatest (like the upcoming Samsung Nexus Prime).
Flash player needs an upgrade" I can't watch videos from youtube , the maps feature doesn't work at all(maybe that's cause I'm in bombay) and besides the server crashing and not being able to use the phone other than its original(obsolete)purpose its pretty decent for about 260$ in india
Is there any cons or prob with this phone?? i know it's an entry level phone and i know that it doesn't have many features but can you give me a feedback with some problems with it? I'm planning to have a contract with our local provider and i'm thinking of getting this phone. is it also true that it has problems with the optical trackpad???
This phone is da biggest trash ever!! after like 2 months da trackpad starts acting up and aint sensitive no more and its very difficult to change!... Big Mistake
Hey I recently (on the 8/10/2011) got this phone but the battery life is terrible, I have no apps on except bbm,no wifi/bluetooth and I have only 3G on. I have battery saving apps and don't use it a lot (a few bbms, check fb twice). It will last about 3 hours, however when I switch off the 3G the battery power improves. Is there something wrong or is this normal? Coz I know some people that reckon their bb last at least one day and that's with apps running in the background as well as 3G
Blackberry curve 3g 9300 is realy nice phone to handel, it is realy better then,bold, and specialy strom, i love this mobile g8.

this phone is good. only thing it lacks is camera flash & the buttons given on top to change music is a bit hard to press.
I purchased this phone recently.I love it,my only hangup is the downloading space for apps is rather small.
-ari&teamsmokers, 24 May 2011I had alredy upgrade my curve 3g to os6 and it was terrible, my bb ran slowly, and it was make... morehow do you downgrade back to blackberry os 5?
I have tried so far and had no luck.
Even tried going to Carphone Warehouse who wanted £15 to downgrade it and the one guy tried and it did not work.
The phone now has a t mobile menu which pops up when you turn the phone on rather than just going to the wallpaper screen by itself which you have to cancel on each startup.
All help greatfully received.
