I have a bb curve 8530, and your post is slanderous, if not full of outright lies. #1, my Curve started receiving calls immediately after activation, and was receiving emails within 30 mintues....#2, my curve always chooses the strongest access point - this has never been an issue.....#3 Here is where I have the biggest beef. You state that the phone reboots every time you plug it into the wall or laptop. This statement is out of leftfield and is totally false. I plug my phone into the wall and my computer every day, and it NEVER reboots. #4, You feel like you'll break it when you answer calls? What, are you a gorilla? Total BS.
i just got the blackberry curve 8530 and everything so far seems to be going well. however, im concerned with the battery life on the phone. does anyone know what the average battery life is on this phone and what i can do to make sure it lasts to its fullest potential if i plan on using bbm, texts, and occasional internet everyday? please give insight because i dont know if i should switch phones! i hope not to have too.
As on all other new BlackBerry devices launching now, the Curve 8530 comes loaded with the new OS 5.0 software. To be more specific, it comes loaded with 184.108.40.2065. Even though the newer OS was loaded, it still had BBM 4.7 pre-installed. This was an easy fix, as all I had to do was go to App World and download BBM 5.0, but I still wonder why it wasn't loaded in the first place since it was available at the time of launch.
I have the 8330 curve which is a little heavier then the 8530, The good thing about the 8530 it's lite weight, one only thing i think that should have been added to the 8530 curve is the flash just so that you can take pictures in very low light. All in all i like the 8530 Curve. It will be my next BB.
