Asher, 21 Jan 2009Can it be used as a modem???yes it can b used as a Modem. Install the software that came with the phone.
This is an awesome awesome Smart Phone. Way to Go RIM! Blows away my 8320!
i want to purchase the blackberry... can any one tell which is the best interms of battery n its features....
waiting for positive replies...
Wow, just got mine from Rogers it's amazing!
Very good features, wifi and gps, awesome camera.
By the way, the camera button has two steps, one to autofocus, then push down further to take the picture, great feature!
Also, the screen is AMAZING! Same resolution as the blackberry storm (but 480 x 360 instead of 360 x 480) so it is same resolution but smaller screen so it looks SO CLEAR and crisp.
Love the keyboard and the size, it's perfect. Definitely get this over the bold if you are debating.
Anonymous, 20 Jan 2009The Bold has a faster processor than the 8900. The speakers sounds a lot better than the 8900.... morebest berry yet . the bold is awesome to but too big for the pocket.this phone is sleek and thin
For those who are having battery issue, I think software version 126.96.36.199 have fixed the problem. I was having battery issue with .96 but upgraded it to .114 and fixed the problem and I guess among other things :)
the bb curve is a great phone if no how to use it properly, the battery is good but if u keep the gps fuction switched on it does drain the batt its the same if you use 3g on the bold or laeave your bluetooth switched on! the curve is designed for the commercial market thats y it has smooth sleek design. it is still as reliable as the bold and the curve b4 it! another great cevice from blackberry
unknown poster 88, 18 Jan 2009i now have the bold and the curve and the curve does the same as a bold just better and faster... moreThe Bold has a faster processor than the 8900. The speakers sounds a lot better than the 8900. And where are you getting faster speeds on Edge over 3G? 3G is much faster than Edge. Don't get confused over using WiFi.
To all you guys having battery-life problems, you might want to try disengaging the GPS function when not in use. Not saying I know for sure (I have an old 8320) but Google Maps (for instance) will kill your battery in less than a few hours if you don't turn off the My Location function as it is always trying to find cell towers even when your not using it. I also learned that it sucks to talk on the phone in a wifi location because if your phone is in wifi mode instead of Edge mode the phone calls keep dropping... even in my bedroom.
im undecided about buying the curve or the bold. the only thing at the that seperates them at the moment is that the curve doesnt support 3G. what are internet browsing speeds like? can anyone help me out!
Still not happy with battery on 2nd handset!!! Believe that BB have downgraded build on this model , trying to attract any user with its better looks. I am almost certainly going to return this handset & revert to a normal curve or try the Bold. Astonished by the reports from some on here about it having good battery life!!!
Anonymous, 17 Jan 2009Please answer: Is the software on the 8900 the same as that which is on the bold??Assuming all the software same as bold.
since we know that to get the curve 8900 we have to pay more. I mean curve is more expensive compare to bold.
Just bought one. Absolutely amazing. Nothing wrong with battery. Bought from Handtec in the UK.
i now have the bold and the curve and the curve does the same as a bold just better and faster.this screen is sharper than the bold, the curve is 480x360 and the bold is 480x320 . the EDGE on this phone beats my bold using 3G to every website. personally this is the best phone on the market and will be for a very long time. the choice is clear.(curve 8900)

bold has only one advantage over it 3G..
other than that this one can beat bold in any aspect at any time
