I love this phone and I made the right choice when I purchased it.
The Blackberry Curve is very elegant and a very attractive looking phone.
The keypad on the phone is set out just like a keyboard on a computer. I find this simple to use but some may find it hard. ( my dad got a Blackberry and sold it the next week because he just couldn't work it! ) The keys are also quite small so I think if you don't like little fiddly things, don't go for this.
The Blackberry also has a scroll button which you basically just move your finger around on and this will scroll up and down all of your applications and I find the scroll very useful for using the internet as it is just like a mouse.
The size of this phone is around an average palm hand size, the screen is a good size also.
I think this is a great phone for people who are very sociable, as you have easy access to social networking sites ( e.g: facebook, bebo ) and plus it comes with BBM ( Blackberry Messenger which is just like MSN for example. )
With this phone if you download Blackberry apps ( I think it charges you, not sure! ) you get a wide selection of pictures,games,sounds,videos to download onto the phone for free. Downloading doesn't take long, for me it is around 1 minute. Once they are downloaded onto the Blackberry it only takes a few seconds to load the application.
The camera and video on this COULD be better considering the rest of the phone, I wouldn't say it is the best for picture/video quality, but it is fine if you don't use your phone for taking a lot pictures.
To use calls and text on this phone is as simple as most phones, access to your contacts and messages will only take a second to get too, and the signal is great ( but I think this probably falls down to what network you are on. )
The battery life on this phone is also very decent, I usually charge mine for 2 hours and it will last 1 or 2 days.
The only downfall is some of the apps look quite boring (e.g: contact list, calender ect..) but I am sure if you downloaded a theme for your phone it would change ( haven't done that yet!! I should )
Overall I love this phone and I would recommend it.
