    Do you prefer Pearl to Curve?

    Advertisement



    Hi stackers. I asked curve owners about if they prefer the curve to the pearl and why, especially if they were pearl users who switched. I would like to know if there are pearl users who either tried or switched to the curve and then preferred the pearl and switched back or stayed with the pearl.

    haven't tried a curve yet, but i'll be visiting the local corporate t-mo store to check it out. i like how slim my pearl is... about as wide as a regular mobile phone.

    Cherry,
    I think you are right about the poll. I want to see if there are those who switched back to pearl from the curve since I am reluctant to change due to the size of the curve vs the pearl. I love the fact the pearl is the size of a phone and can fit in the pocket made inside many purses

    Well I guess I can post for both polls then. Bc I still have a pearl here at home ;-P

    After using curve for one month and then building a theme and testing on hubbys pearl I thought to myself *this thing is soooo tiny*!!

    When I switched from the 7100 to the pearl I thought compact was sooo cool but it is really small. And I love suretype - I'm lazy. I tried an 8800 too. The curve is still my fav for size and functionality.

    let us know what you decide and why it could make a great guide for those undecided between the two phones.

    I choose the pearl for it's small size. The curve is just a little to big for my tastes.

    as a girl, the curve fits fine in my pocket when i am up walking or moving about...but when i sit down, it has to come out - but my pants don't fit like a guys pants

    i did take the bb skin off to fit better in my pocket. with the bse on it, im not so worried. but if i do drop him, i'll regret taking the skin off

    i think the pearl users prefer a smaller phone, curve is a nice replacement for any of the other bb phones but cant replace the pearl when it comes to size

    Pearl: 4.20" x 2.00" x 0.57" (107 x 51 x 14 mm)

    Curve: 4.20" x 2.36" x 0.61" (107 x 60 x 15 mm)

    so...same from top to bottm; only .36" wider (which isn't that bad at all), and only .04" thicker (which is pretty much nothing)
