    Just switched from iPhone to the Curve

    Advertisement



    Everything is awesome so far. I like the Blackberry better than the iPhone in every aspect but the web browser. I have to admit that safari was pretty dang cool. Now that the iphone is on ebay its time to move on.

    So far so good with the berry...have it syncd with outlook and my e-mail and such.

    One question...i have the holster and anytime i recieve a text/mms/email with the phone in the holster, then take it out of the holster it will automatically pull it up on the screen. Is there anyway to disable that? I'd rather it just alert me, then me be able to look at it at my own convenience. I sell AT&T phones at my work...and when demo'ing the phone i dont want to have to make sure innapropriate things are not on display each time i hand my phone to a could be customer.

    thanks!

    Wait at least 10 seconds before you pull the BB out of the holster and then it won't auto load the text/e-mail message. Other than that I don't believe there is a way as the BB is designed that way.

    i think under general options, if you change from make messages level 1 to something else they don't auto open. This how it worked on my old bblackberry 5810. just open messages, press the menu button and goto general options and it is near the bottom of this list in the general options menu. let me know if this works. i just got back in to the blackberry arena with the curve so i am rediscovering everything.

    cool thanks guys.

    Even more enticing about the blackberry was the price. $31.86 after tax for a refurb curve compared to $300+ for my 4gig iphone.

    Have you tried the Opera mini browser? It's not quite mobileSafari, but it's pretty damn good.

    I can't believe you switched from the I-Phone to the Curve! People at work think I'm crazy for loving Blackberry more than I-Phone's, so it's good to hear I'm not the only crazy one.

    I tell those I work with it's like putting Macs against PCs. Chevys against Fords. Alternative Rock against Emo.....

    It doesn't matter what your opinion is, one's better than the other!!!

    PCs! Fords! Alternative! Blackberry's!!!

    Anyways, enough preaching. Welcome to the stacks bigsho. Make yourself at home

My buddy unlocked my 8gb iphone and apple won't take it back so I sold iit and got lil profit of it.. Oh the night I just got my iphone I didn't like it I called tmo and ordered curve. I got it thursday and I'm soooooo lovin it!
