    Thanks all for your replies. I think at least for me it will come down to the size issue and also whether I want a BB phone with email and internet capabilities or a BB for email and internet that also doubles as a phone.

    I'm on tight budget. Ill stick uth my pearl. I love it. Coming from the previous dummy phones to the pearl is a godsend. I like the slim profile and suretype of my pearl. But for those with the resources and the opportunity to try out different phones do it. I enoy all the feedback and all the info you all provide.

    Re: do you prefer pearl to curve?

    For me, it's not so much that the Curve is that much bigger, but I like my phone in a horizontal belt holster. The Pearl is not much wider than my belt. The Curve would we wide enough (with the holster and all) that it would get in the way.

    However, I do prefer the larger screen on the Curve... wish I could have a bigger screen on the Pearl...
    As always, just my opinion...

    either phone is great b/c its a blackberry but I like the smallness of the pearl and the sure type is nice but if I was the type that liked typing on a full keyboard then i would say the curve.

    I have both, like the Curve a little better for navigation, typing. Got the Curve because the Pearl's keypad quit working. Anyone else have this problem?

    Re: do you prefer pearl to curve?

    I have had a chance to play with the Curve and it is really all preference of the keyboard...

    Yes, the bigger screen is nice but if size matters to you than you clearly know what you are sacrificing.

    The curve does have a spell checker built into the email interface which is awesome!!
    I currently use LexSpell on my Pearl so its basically the same, but just as you can add words to suretype you can add words to the Curve's spell checker plus it works on SMS.

    At least for now I am gonna keep the pearl... its the Pearl 2 that I really want in September!!!

    Re: do you prefer pearl to curve?

    I got the Pearl because of its size. I was tempted when the Curve came out to switch, but I really enjoy the size of this phone. I'm hooked on the SureType, and its great being able to carry it around in my pocket. I may upgrade to the Pearl 2 in September, but I don't know. I don't use the camera often enough to make a 2MP camera that big of a deal for me.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I'm keeping my Pearl. I have become attached to SureType since the 7100t and refuse to give it up. I will be waiting for the Pearl 2 or the 91xx.

    Re: do you prefer pearl to curve?

    Well I think I finally have to weigh in and vote and say that after seeing pros and cons on both the pearl vs the curve, I prefer the size of the pearl, and I think I like the smaller keyboard even with the occasional misspellings if you aren't watching the screen using SureType. I still can see the value in a larger screen with the curve, which I miss from my old palm, but I vote pearl.

    Re: do you prefer pearl to curve?

    I have them both. Though i love the big screen and qwerty keys of the curve, the pearl's os is faster ,smoother and less buggy. After a couple more OS upgrades, the curve should rock! till then pearls ma bb.

    The Pearl is just the easiest BB to carry around and can do 99% of what I need. I keep going back to it.
