    What you will get with the BOLD that is not on the Curve is

    3G
    WiFi and GPS in one device
    Higher resolution screen
    1gb of internal memory
    Better processor

    Although it maybe a while though until TMO gets the BOLD so it's keep the Curve or wait at least 3 months for the BOLD to show up on TMO

    To get GPS on a TMO Curve, you need an external GPS puck, there is none built in. I think the processor speed is what you would notice the most. I would wait a while before the switch, let them work out the kinks in the phone and the 3G network

    As soon as the bold is released in the use you will be able to compare the two online when you log onto the blackberry website and your carrier site. I am holding off for the bold due to the fact that it is faster than the curve and the hardware is built to support the new os for smooth operation.

    Well I'm just gonna keep the curve until it craps out because there probably going to be another new one after the bold and by then I might need a new phone right now the curve works just fine for me, plus I don't feel shelling out the dough for the new bold. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I've been comparing the two for a while, chances are I'll just go for the Javelin once that's released. The Bold's size is turning me away and the wait as well.

    GPS means it will literally track you, and tell you where to go if you ask for directions. VZW has that as a locked feature. to the best of my knowledge, you must pay extra each month to actually enable the full GPS features on verizon devices.

    at the moment, the only way to find out where you are on a blackberry that does not have GPS is to use Google Maps, which triangulates your location via cell towers... and that's only within half a mile.

    GPS is a great feature. and Tmobile isnt a stickler about paying extra for stuff like that. but in the end, it all comes down to service in your area and where you travel.

    I'm in a tricky position as i only got my Curve yesterday and within the first 7 days i can cancel my contract so i don't know whether to stick with the Curve or switch and go Bold. I read somewhere that Orange will have the Bold on sale in a few days and i do fancy the 3G access. Hmmm...
