    Considering the Curve

    Advertisement



    So I have been really considering upgrading from the 8100 to the Curve. I have always liked the 8100 due to its size. However I have came across a problem with the 8100.

    Copy from thread in the 8100 section:
    So as I view web pages, I can normally see 3 to 4 web pages, then when I request the next page, my browser goes to requesting and just keeps requesting. When this occurs the tx/rx arrows no longer show. This happens on all sites I visit. Also when this occures I no longer receive e-mails.

    The only way I have found to fix it is to do a softreset, however this tends to be a pain in the arse after 5 to 6 of them a day.

    I have tried erasing history/cache etc. with no luck.

    Sidenote:

    BIS (T-mo)
    8100 w/ current os (.107)
    This happens with both browsers (BB and Opera)

    So I was wondering is this a T-mo issue or a BB issue? And is there any tricks or quick fixes?
    It seems others are having the same problem with the 8100 and it does not seem to be carrier issue.

    I was just wondering has any 1 had this problem with the Curve? If no this may be just what I needed to push me over the edge to upgrading to the Curve.

    Ya it seems to be hit and miss.

    Congrats man! Hope it comes fast for ya!

    As for my experience with browsing on my curve, I've experienced a few times where the browser sits at "requesting". Fortunately, this doesn't happen often and is resolved by retrying to load the page (reclicking the link).

    Ya mine is at home (Seattle) and I am currently on California, but I will be home tomorrow.

    I currently have a 2gig Kingston that I use in my Pearl, for now I will be using it, in my Curve. It is a little slow when first pulling up media, however it works ok for my needs.

    No GPS on the 8320 Curve. It does have Wifi.

    I would recommend it.
