I have used Android, IOS and Symbian OSes in the past 5years just to check on what would be the most simple yet powerful phone I can use till I found this. RIM makes tools not toys. This is the phone that you should buy if you're the type of guy who likes to keep in touch with your friends either via basic phone calls or text or social networking or emails. Just learn how to set the right settings and the battery will last for almost two days.
I just purchased the Blackberry Curve 9320 in black yesterday. Amazing phone for the price. If you are a gaming person then be warned this is not the phone for you. If you are a facebook/twitter/BBM person then this is a steal. Also excellent for first time smartphone users. This is a decent business phone but for a more serious one get the Bold 9900 or if you like gaming and business in one then the Torch 9310 might be good for you, might not.
The battery life is long and by far the longest on a curve. (6h+)
The screen resolution is not very good but not so much as terrible.
The keyboard, as usual, is excellent. I just really like real QWERTY keys and how Blackberry ones make you feel you are really pushing the keys down. Clicky.
The Appstore definitely needs improvement. There is like 0 game apps for the curve.
My Overall Rating: 4/5
Thank you for reading my short review.
anyone have the model please don't do upgrade your software to the latest version because you will lose Audio Boost option and sound . this's my advaice
Am i the only one in South Africa having problems with completion of downloads of music or videos? This phone since i bot it it has not completed any of my downloads, and ive researched and some says it might be the 7.1 OS running on the phone, do some of you guys have the same problem when downloading?

Can anybody tell me that can I use standard gprs and mms packages on blackberry without activating bb services? Like Nokia, Samsung or any other.. Or is it necessary to active bb services for sending or receiving mms or using gprs?
Good answers will be appreciated.
Superb phone in this price range. Suberb 3g, fast 2g. Download video also fast. Battery? Superb battery. Last more than 1 day with 3g mode, always listening to music, always surfing internet. Just turn on the power save mode in this phone and choose always and there it is. Superb battery. Really
Using it since last 15 days.. Really poor battery guys.. otherwise it could have become an Wow!! phone
iam an poor husband, my salary is just Rp 1.500.000 a month or about $150 a month.
last night me n my wife go to handphone shop, n see this nice looking BB
i already have BB Gemini, but my wife doesn't have.

since then i just cry on my heart, that i cant fulfill my wife wants.
maybe God will help me.
thanks for your time for reading this.
This is a great phone ! camera really good for 3.2 mega pixel . its fast and does not lag . battery life is good to. i would defiantly recommend this phone .
i thought this phone will be the best it seem as if my expectations had neva been met. no matter its OS 7.1 this phone ain't different from BB 8520. BB lacks innovation.
I recently got this phone as a contract, i should say the battry is very poor as i charge it twice a day and hardly use it during peak hours and also everytime when I download mp3 music they always fail to download, is there anyway I can increase the download speed on this phone? as when i had my 9300 curve it did not fail constantly, even the bbm message and whatsapp takes time to be delivered or be sent to me especially during off peak hours which I dnt knw if its the phone or the service provider.
