This phone has to be updated with os 7.1 otherwise it will not run smoothly.....i have updated and its smooth and am in love with it.....
This phone is excellent. I am in love with this phone. However, there is one thing that is annoying me a lot. The stupid Blackberry internet plans. The normal 2g & 3g internet plans donot work on this. The Blackberry plans are a waste of money for minimal internet users like me.

I have been having so many problems with regards to battery life of my BB 9380 Curve. The phone randomly just switches off and always restarts/ reboots. I tried removing my SIM card and replacing the battery but it takes forever and this is not normal for this to happen more than three times a day. The phone is just over a year old so could the battery have deteriorated?
bgy, 23 May 2013and how about the battery? on mine last for 2 days in normal use....Mine is giving me problems,can't even use usb and it just frees when am in a phone call,got battry problems,no space nd I've been using it for5 months now
Is the curve 9380 still avaible here in SA?coz all the stores in Cape town says its an old phone,I don't understand coz its not even 2years sins it came out.
From a little over a year of usage, I can solidly confirm that this phone is absolutely terrible. Repeated restarts and freezes, terrible resource management and battery life. This phone only works properly when you don't use it. Any kind of usage causes over-heating and restart, especially with simultaneous use of BBM and WhatsApp. I urge anyone reading this to NOT get this phone.
masterBEERTJIE, 22 May 2013to all those people out there, wondering if they should buy this phone,,, YES definately!! ive... moreDear MasterBEERTJIE
I am glad you haven't had any issues with your phone. My BB 9380 has given me nothing but problems, and I've only had it for 8 months now.
THe keylock button is broken, the pick-up button is cracking, I have to take out the battery at least 5 times a day to get my messages, the battery lasts all of 30 min and then goes flat, it's internet connection is pathetic and the phone lags badly. (Please note - I am not a rough user. The screen is unscratched, even though you can't get a cover for this phone anywhere.) Calls drop for no reason and some calls just don't come through.
However, this is not what bugs me the most. The worst thing is the phone's total lack of sensitive reaction protocol. For instance - the bloody phone keeps putting itself on hold, while I am mid sentence. When it doesn't do that, it beeps and beeps like I have Tourette's Syndrome - all this while I am on the phone with my clients (it comes across as very unprofessional). And nothing you do can stop it. NOTHING!
I can assure you - if none of your customers have returned their Curve 9380's, it is only because the phones have driven them insane and they are not able to return it, or they have thrown it against a wall in pieces.
THIS IS A CRAP PHONE!!!
