So I'm a college student and it was just time for a new Cellphone and I wanted the BlackBerry Storm. I was going through with the deal on a particular site that had it lower priced than the original price. So I was filling out the contract and by the end decided, it may be cheaper to get another phone. (Well I didn't decide this, but it's not the point)
So instead I go and checkout the BlackBerry Curve 8330. I'm filling out the contract and I fail to realize during the process that it's basically around the same price as the BlackBerry Storm with all of the features that add up at the end. So I go ahead and get it.
After the fact I do the math and finally realize......"HEY! For the price I might as well have stuck with the BlackBerry Storm."
So now I'm just wondering, before I beat myself up too much if there is any reason to beat myself up. Is the BlackBerry Storm really that good or am I better off with the BlackBerry Curve or does it matter? I really wanted a new TouchScreen phone and I liked the look of the Blackberry Storm. Not to mention I'm finding out that the Curve is rather old right. Although I do like the Curve. So yeah.
Any input will be greatly appreciated. I just joined just to ask this so I hope it was worth it.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Thanks very much for the greeting and the information. Glad to see a fellow Curve owner who is enjoying it as well. I just got mine yesterday and I've been on it almost nonstop. It's my first phone of this type really. Having this phone just makes me wish I had more people to talk and text to. Give me more reason to be on it even more. Ha.
I'll be looking out for your friend's input and I'll check out that link.

Someone's living on the dangerous side. In the tub? Phew. I couldn't do it. But yeah, I'm now awaiting my Otterbox Protective Case. Until then, the leather case that came with my Curve will have to do.
And yeah, as I'm reading on about the Storm, I still wish I had gotten it, but I'm sure with the Curve, it'll be something easy to get over.............I hope.

If you just got the CURVE and you are havin second thoughts, you can go back and exchange it?
However, I think you will love the CURVE - and then next year if you want to switch over, The STORM will be better than ever!!

So, I got the Storm.
Has some really jiggy action problems on the keyboard and in other areas.
I found the Curve so much easier to operate in just minutes of playing with it at the store.
I just got back from Verizon where another guy was having the same problems. He had the Curve prior to the Storm and recommended the Curve over the Storm.
He pulled out from Verizon and went to AT&T for the new Bold.
I think you can chill and enjoy the Curve.
I am sleeping on it and may go back pay $35.00 restock and get the Curve. But maybe not. My 12 year old son is talking me into staying with the jiggy Storm.
I'd say stay with your Curve and move on!
