The RIM BlackBerry Curve boasts a sexy and slim design with an improved full QWERTY keyboard. The smartphone also has a 2-megapixel camera, Bluetooth, and a media player. There's a new spell-checker for e-mail and memos, and audio technology that automatically adjusts call volume in noisy environments.
Unfortunately, the BlackBerry Curve doesn't have integrated Wi-Fi or 3G support. The device's camera still doesn't have video-recording capabilities, and call quality sounded a bit hollow.
Though it doesn't bring Wi-Fi or 3G support, the BlackBerry Curve offers a best-of-breed design and a well-rounded set of features to make it an attractive device for consumers and mobile professionals alike.

Blackberry Curve: A good phone for Rodgers
This phone was EXCELLENT. I got it about/eh 2 years ago? I loved it immediately. I had used the 8700C previously, and what a step up this was from that phone, let me tell you that. I was a little irked at the 8700 and that was nearly immediately.
I liked that this device was so slim. Coming from something with the scroll-wheel (something RIM used on devices that they produced before the trackball) was just awesome. I'd heard that the "pearl" was fragile, so I got a case.
Ok: Things I like:
I could use the phone over bluetooth IN MY CAR. I could play music thru the auxiliary port 3.5mm headset jack BTW (FINALLY!) I could also use this as a Bluetooth Modem for my laptop. I also liked the keyboard. The QWERTY keyboard was awesome for emailing, and it just felt good. I liked the camera, but since I was on an earlier SW version (and DIDN'T HEAR ABOUT THIS UNTIL NOW) did not have video. That was one of the downsides, but since it was mainly used for emailing and calling I didn't really care. I liked the music app too. I loaded an 2GB card full of my songs I listed to and played them thru the AUX port on my stereo on work commutes. It worked with a lot of online apps too.
I used it a lot, and can only really come up with a couple.
What I've found for the cons is the MUSIC player navigation. You cannot easily replay a song. You have to press the BLACKBERRY button, and scroll down to replay every time. Same goes for fast forwarding. Say I'd like to back out and go to a different album if I'm listening to just an artist and not all songs, I hit the back button, but what that does is takes me back to the MEDIA page, where I have to go back in and choose my artist again.
The next thing I didn't like is the mute key thing. I understand it is used for pausing the music (that's what it's there for) but it can also be used as a sleep button if you hold it in for 5 seconds) if you had music paused on your phone, and press the button to have the phone go to "sleep" the music get's reactivated again. This doesn't stop until you restart the phone (and hitting STOP on the music player didnt work either. I'd have to completely close out of the app to get out of the music.
I liked the brick game. As I understand it, the phone was geared for the professional user, as well as the personal. I used it for both. I played "BRICK BREAKER" endlessly, and nearly beat it.
I now use a Samsung Galaxy phone, but I think about this phone a lot, and it's still my backup one.
It's a good phone, so get one if you can. IT'S DURABLE TOO. Mine was wet once.
BEST PHONE EVER if you want a phone that does everything and this is where its at
QUAD BAND so it works worldwide!
Camera is fast and effecient

Has Many apps and games to dowload at BLACKBERRIESRUS.com
Great Phone over happy has lasted me about 3 years now and i have dropped it many times and its still going
thanks blackberry for making such a great product at the price i can afford!
customer friendly , great easy to use phone. technology is awesome, love the wide screen, colour is nice, this product is nice especially if you go on ,face book, and browse the internet.
Hands Down, one of the best Blackberrry's on the market. Really nice feel to it. Rubberized back with texture, chrome finish, and slick black front. Just feels solid in your hand. The trackball is the best on the market, slightly raised for easy use and perfect tracking. You can now upgrade the bios to 6.0 which really works well on this powerhouse. Visual voicemail is a nice feature, plus the thousands of apps you can download. GPS works spot on. Have mine set up with the sidekey to use google maps, which is the best. Blackberry maps is not useful at all. Comes preloaded with Office basic. Has wifi, excellent for Skype calls and travel. Oh, when I travel I swap out the sim card to the international one and it works perfectly. I also use tether, use my phone as a high speed modem. Actually, used my laptop in my car, hooked up to my phone, hooked up to a web cam and it worked pretty well. All in all I would say, with its super bright screen, beautiful color, and overal build, would rate this phone 10/10
The back of the phone does not stay on. I cannot get Pandora or other applications although both my service provider and the application provider say there should not be a problem.
