New Blackberry!

I know, I know...I just got my other phone in January. However, it never seemed to work right. I was having to do battery pulls on it about three times a week. The internet took forever to load and my trackball kept getting stuck. The guys at Telus tried to talk to me like an idiot and tell me to do what I had already tried doing. Telus said they could fix my phone for free since it was under warranty, but it would still be the exact same way really...since all they would do is put it back to factory settings. So I decided that I have outgrown my Blackberry Curve 8330 and it wasn't worth going phone free for a month while they tinkered around with it! I did not feel to bad saying goodbye to it because I had gotten it for free when I had renewed my contract.

So I upgraded to the Blackberry 3G (9300) and it is LOVE LOVE LOVE. It took me a little while to get used to the new trackpad, but it is perfection. It makes scrolling so much easier! It runs on the 3G network and is much faster. I recommend the 9300 over the 8530 in the current models, because it looks better and it is OS 6 compatible. Now to just wait until OS 6 is released! The keyboard is very similar to my 8330, which I'm happy about. It also offers Wi-Fi and more memory. I can still run my favorite theme on it (Reverie- search for it on crackberry!).

Does anyone else have this phone? If you still have an older phone and you're looking for an upgrade in the Curve series, I do recommend this phone. I'm very pleased with it and I haven't had to do a single battery pull. If there is one thing I miss from the 8330, it would be the camera flash. The 3G comes loaded with more games and applications, as well as threaded SMS messages. I know I don't talk about technology that often, but I'm a technology addict! Hope this helped any of you out that might be in the market for a new phone that won't break your wallet. If you have the older 8330 and you have more questions about how these two compare, just let me know. I'll try to help.

Now, I just have to find some cute cases! :)

I hope you all have a great weekend! Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian readers! I won't be updating on Monday due to the holiday, so I'll be back on Tuesday. ♥

That's a pretty phone, Wendy! I owned a blackberry curve a few years ago but I accidently washed it -- it was in my sweater and I forgot to take it out before I did the laundry! I was heartbroken, but upgraded to an iPhone... no regrets though! =)
