    Thanks for the tip. I'll give it a try and let you know!

    8707 clarification:

    The Blackberry 8707 (available from Vodafone and O2) is 3G, but only on the 2100 mHz band that is used in Europe and Asia. It does not access the US 3G networks.

    How is the sound quality for the music player? Also have you tried the reliability of stereo bluetooth?

    "To be honest, I can't really fault it after a week. It's much smaller and nicer to hold, has all the apps I need and fits into jeans pocket no problem. Plus the handy leather slip case means I can at least try and keep the screen scratch free."

    Well I've only had mine one day and I find the misic player great.

    Can't address the reliability of th stereo bluetooth as the sample size isn't adequate to address it but so far pairing with a motorola S9 headset went well and sounds great. No problem with outgoing callsN haven't used it for incoming yet.

    The only thing I've found that irks me with the Bluetooth is that the audio for the video doesn't seem to work with the S9. Don't know if it's me or the BB yet

    Cool thanks Rcbjr, was hoping the music player would be better which is a plus since i scene it can take up to a 4GB micro sd card. I'll look into the bluetooth issue and see if there is anything i can dig up from our bb rep.

    Re: My first week with the Curve

    I agree that the music player's pretty decent, although I'll stick my iPod for sounds and vidz (60Gb versus my 256Mb card!).

    One thing I have noticed in Week Two of my ownership which is hacking me off big time is the signal sensitivity. It's REALLY sensitive. I can use my old 8707v on GPRS here at home, no problem. Okay, it only shows three bars for signal strength, but it's only ever dropped out completely maybe twice in a year.

    I know the signal here is pretty good, because my wife gets great reception and signal strength with her normal mobile phone.

    The Curve seems to spend most of its time set to GSM when I'm at home and contrary to anything the manual says, most of the time that equals zero signal. No email, no SMS, no MMS and you can forget about making calls, too. Swapping the SIM card between handsets suggests this is just down to the characteristics of the Curve itself, because the 8707v still works fine in the same situation.

    I find this to be very, very sucky. I compose a message and it doesn't send. So I have to fire my laptop up and go through the process online instead. Not what I wanted the Curve for at all.

    Oh, the leather slip case may be a UK-only freebie, btw. Sorry, I don't know for sure, but it has proved really useful.
