"This is as good as smartphones get!"4.5 starson by wmdaily
Pros: Screen, keyboard, call quality, email, Wi-Fi, @Home
Cons: Cost for existing customers
Summary: I have used a Pearl since January and really like it a lot, but the Curve is at another level. The main reason I switched was to have a full keyboard for email and text messaging and I am not disappointed. This keyboard is great! In addition, the screen is much larger and brighter than the Pearl.
The call quality is excellent - probably better than the Pearl. I use a Samsung WEP200 that paired up and sounds great with the Curve.
I installed T-Mobile @Home router last month and tried it with the Nokia phone. That phone was a disaster. However, @Home works perfectly with the Curve. It switches seamlessly while entering or leaving the @Home network.
I have tried a number of smart phones over the years (TREO, etc.) but this one is by far the best. It is very expensive unless you are starting a new service. And speaking of service, I was with Sprint for about 8 years. Even though T-Mobile may not have as good a network as Sprint, Cingular or Verizon their customer service is exemplary.
BlackBerry and T-Mobile hit a grand slam with this product!
