aquariu, 17 Apr 2010can anybody advice if we can pair dis device with any other brand wen it comes 2 bluetooth?I had a Nokia N75 with bluetooth. When I upgraded to blackberry curve, I asked if I could use the bluetooth for the Nokia on the blackberry, and the salesman said, "No." When I got home, I decided to try, and the blackberry detected it and connected right away. It works. I think that as long as it is the same cellular service (AT&T, Sprint, etc), it will work, because they have certain channels. I believe it will even work across service providers, but don't know that for sure.

I've seen unofficial versions but I don't know if they would be bug-free.
Hope you can give me some advice. Thanks!
jamie, 15 Apr 2010some of my friends said that it is not advisable to drain BB battery. Based from their experie... moreyes,dude..charging our battery should be done when the battery icon turns red..meaning it only has 5% left..then u should charge it..if u think that u r going out somewhere,charge it when the battery turns yellow/orange meaning it left 10-20% also can..i always used to charge my device when the icon turns red only..normally it will take about 3.5-4 hours to regain full charges(100%)..ive made a testing b4,the gemini's backup battery is superb dude..when the device turns red(5%),it still can hold until 5 hours more..no kidding bro!..during that time still i can make/receives a few call (which is not more than 1 minute)..smses, n also take a few pic..damn superb bro..
gemini, 16 Apr 2010Hi m2wt. I also chose between this Curve and the Samsung model you mentioned. In the end I ... moreyes gemini,u r damn right my fren..what u have told that fella is good explanation..
m2wt, 15 Apr 2010hi i've not used a bb b4 and my interest now is to get a qwerty keypad phone. so i'm deciding... moreHi m2wt. I also chose between this Curve and the Samsung model you mentioned.
In the end I chose to get the Curve because it's more user friendly and BB OS is really a class of its own.
I used to be a Nokia user but after getting this phone, I think I will stay with the brand.
The camera is dismal though and that's the only gripe I have about this phone.
But the social networking integration is the best. Also having access to emails is a lifesaver.
Just be sure to apply for a BIS plan so you can get your BB's worth. Otherwise it'll be just a normal mid range phone that can call and text.
This phone is an average bb but it is actually quite good and the ratings are on point.
Jp, another solution to your problem can be is to transfer everything to your other phones memory card and just put that SD-memory card into your phone. A hassle but a solution none the less hahaha....
Hi JY. I can pair with other devices, but as soon as that person tries to send me something, the message on their phone say something like "Other user's handset nog compatible" It doesn't even give you the chance to send something... This is really confusing... LOL
