    revision A. From my understanding, revision B ( or whatever they will call it ) can be utilized with a firmware update when it's implemented in the network.

    You have two ears, two eyes, and one mouth;
    therefore, listen and observe twice as often as you speak.

T-Mobile being the exception to that allowing for unlimited calling through the wifi functionality. Just wondering really (anyhoo).

    This phone is going to be what I have been waiting for. At least until the next CDMA BlackBerry becomes available. But that silver color is tired. I'll definitely have to wait to see what other color will come, hopefully black! That would be the slickest looking bb ever!

    ALL phones that have internet capabilities require a data plan. WIFI enables WIFI voice.
    Color---it's nothing but a hue of the rainbow...why do people place such importance in it?

    Well, dont know about everyone else, but the internet speeds I get right now on my 8830 are terrible, worse than dial up. I sure hope whatever this evdo stuff is (You can tell i know my stuff! ) I hope its faster than what i got. And yes, the camera is what ive been waiting for as an 8830 user...

    I've tried the 8130 just b/c I needed the camera for work & loved it; but, typing on the smaller keyboard just didn't get it for me; that's why I went back to the 8830. This new device is the total package for me, just wish that someone could get the GPS option to work!!!

    Well, I called my Verizon Rep and asked if there was a release date for the device. She pretty much did not know what I was talking about...she was even a 8130 owner and she did not hear about it. (Maybe she should have become a PinStacker...BooYa!) She thanked ME for the info that THEY had posted on their own web site, stating she knew nothing about the release or VZ offering the Curve soon. I feel real confident w/ my provider right now.(....NOT!!!!) I called them originally to disconnect my VZ Nav that I tried out for 1 whole week! It was slow...always trying to connect, and the voice nav did not work.(Yes, this was the updated version.)I think I will stick w/Google maps. I told the rep, that when they release the GPS on our phones, I will re-add their service. I told her that this was my silent protest against their disabling of the GPS for their "beloved customers." Anyone heard a VZW release date for the new Curve? T-Mo, Sprint, etc, have released theirs....

    It would be nice if we could get a BB on VZW that was worldwide AND had a camera. This sux that I have to trade off one for the other. And what is with the ugly silver case? What can't VZW give us a sweet black case like Sprints Curve?
