    I had the curve for about 3 years! Loved it at first, but had tons of trouble with it until the end!

    @ Vance I know exactly where you're coming from. I had a blackberry flip (dont even remember which one at this point). But like Clay said I loved it at first until it started freezing up and turning itself off. I know upgrading is costly but it maybe worth it to get rid of the headache. But you may want to see about doing what I ALWAYS end up having to do (cause I can go through a phone in a years time). Request a credit line (or increase) if you already have one and just turn in the old phone for a credit (depending on phone) and charge the new one to your credit. But bare in mind the full amount plus your new statement balance will be due on the next months statement. Just a thought.

    My Blackberry started doing that, too. It was a great phone at first but then it fell apart. My son still has a Blackberry, and the phone itself is fine, but RIM keeps having outages and I am waiting for his contract to be finished so I can get rid of it. Since RIM is so unstable right now, I would not invest in another Blackberry. Besides, there isn't much bang for the buck with Blackberries. Outside of it being practically teenager proof, I don't see much point in having one.

    I had similiar issues but am a huge Blackberry Fan.  The last three were nothing but headaches, felt cheap, and could not access the Internet.  I got tired of going into the store after the phone had crashed and them not being able to fix the issues so I finially upgraded to an iPhone.  Battery life is not great but overall trouble free.

    I would love a Blackberry Curve, had one, was awesome!  Far better than  this junk I bought.  I'm using a Galaxy S Showcase.  The Zombie in the office said that if you load any apps on it, it'll bog it down, cause it to re-boot, and make the blue-tooth fail to work.  Sure enough, I told the phone to restore factory settings, wiped out everything and it works great for phone-calls only.  Keyboard sucks as is for text messaging, 25% of the time you can send or receive pictures.  But at least you can place phone calls.  Can't wait for my 2-year contract to be up so I can go to sprint, or back to AT&T.  According to their service tech (eh, if you call it that), the only phone capable of running apps in the store is the iPhone 5, which I hate more than anything else on the universe.  She insisted that the Blackberry curve couldn't run the apps I was allready running on my Blackberry curve, when I had it.  I'm thinking of buying a blackberry curve on e-bay and putting my sim card in it, then cancelling my useless insurance with c-spire.  Sprint had a deal where they'd pay you upto $300 for your old phone, but likely won't cover the cost to break the contract right now.  Cspire really needs to change the name on the top of their store to iPhone Only.  Something I loved about AT&T.  They didn't force their beliefs on you.  It was your decision what phone was right for you.
