    Do any of you stackers switch back and forth between blackberry devices? Like between a Pearl and a Curve on a regular basis? I currently use the curve and am dying to try out the pearl just for the heck of it and possibly just switch back and forth as I feel. Not looking to replace one with the other. Other than the switching of Pin # everytime, is there any reasons or disadvantages to doing this? I am with AT&T so its just a switch of sim card for me.. Thanx..

    I would keep the curve as well. The keyboard must be a pain switching back and forth.

    Oh no. I am NOT replacing 1 with the other. I was originally asking if anyone else goes back and forth between the 2 devices. Maybe like Curve during the week.. Pearl on weekends.. Believe me, I don't think I can handle heavy email & text usage on the pearl.

    If I had an extra BB i would go back and forth on them. Im just waiting to see what the new bb will be like with a touch screen. The article i read in wall street journal says there is already a few prototypes out in the field being used for testing of the device. But if i had an extra bb i would switch back and forth, depending on my plans.

    I'm a diehard Pearl user, but if I had a Curve I'd probably pick one or the other to use. I'm so used to SureType now that I fumble around with MultiTap phones as badly as I used to fumble with SureType when I was learning it. So I doubt I would enjoy flipping back and forth between that and a QWERTY setup.

    I'm upgrade eligible in April. By then, who knows what'll be out there. I may be willing to try out the touchscreen BB if its out by then.

    See that's what I am wondering. I am due for upgrades on 2 or 3 lines. And I am very tempted to even just pick up a refurb pearl for 29.99. I was told it will be hard going back and forth from suretype to full keyboard.

    I'm phone only, so switching is a lot easier for me than most. I like using my 7290 at work and my 8700 at other times, because at work it gets beat up a little and theft is a little more likely. If one of my berrys is stolen or scratched up, I'd rather it be the 7290. Like I said, I'm GSM and phone-only, so all I have to do is swap the SIM

    Re: Just Wondering

    yup, its just going to prompt you to change Pin# xxxxx to Pin#xxxxx. you click yes, then just send service books.

    and you know what, now that i remember, you sold be able to do that right from the phone. just open the browser and go to set up internet email in your book marks. ugh now that i think about it, maybe that wont work...i always just do it from my PC

    sorry if i dont make sense....been shopping all day so that caused me to go to the bar for a few
