Web Experience...Storm vs Curve

[ Edited ]

I'm leaning toward the Storm for the larger screen since my primary reason for this phone is mobile web and email.  Other than screen size, how would you rate the web experience on one vs the other?  Does the curve have mandatory data like the Storm?  I've seen a few issues mentioned with the Storm and there seems to be a lot of them on the used market.

 

I should also mention that since I'm no where near my upgrade date with Verizon and can't afford $600 for a phone, I'll be buying on the used market.  I'm not sure if I can add insurance on a phone not purchased through Verizon.  If I have issues and can't get support from Verizon, that could be a problem.

 

Thanks

Re: Web Experience...Storm vs Curve

I would advise using one first if you can.

 

The internet is great with the larger screen. There are also addtional third party browsers, like the Bolt browser and Opera Mini which work quite well for browsing also.

 

The Curve and the Storm will both need the BlackBerry Data Plan for your best experience... and required functions of the device.

Read this information in the link below for buying a used BlackBerry (any model) off eBay or anywhere, even from a friend. Ask the right questions first.
