Love the Curve 8530…better than the Tour!
I returned the Tour due to the trackball sticking, and exchanged it for the 8530. In a word it's great, so far!
The menus are better and upgraded from the tour.
The calendar is more use friendly than the Tour.
You can put the messages and your daily appointments on the main screen!
Typing, er keyboarding,seems easier and faster than the Tour.
And, of course best of all, no more trackball. The pad works flawlessly.
I would have give it a solid "5" rating if the micro SD card, and a case would have been included.
Happy with phone
I have had the phone for 1.5 months and very pleased.
Vibrate and great battery life.
If you let the phone drain the battery until it turns off and fully charge 1 or 2 times the battery life is great.
I get 3 to 4 days between recharging.
Hope this helps other 8530 owners.
Suits My Needs
Had the Curve 8330 and the Tour before the Curve 8530. I use it primarily as a phone and for E-mail. I have Verizon and would not use any other carrier.
Small and lightweight
Battery Life (Can get almost 2 full days)
Did I say TRACK PAD :o)
Key's a little small(I average 40-50 e-mails a day)
I am very satisfied with the 8530 but I will probably get the next one Verizon comes out with just because it's something new..not because I need it !
