"I love my Blackberry Curve 9360 - Great choice!"

I decided to upgrade my Blackberry to this version the BlackBerry Curve 9360 and am very glad I did! I had a Blackberry Curve before, an older version.

In my opinion the BlackBerry Curve 9360 is alot quicker to use, especially using apps such as Facebook and Ebay. The phone itself is very slim and light, camera is great and also has a flash (my last phone didnt). Picture quality is high.

I did purchase a silicone type case for this phone, as it is so slimline it does seem more breakable than my last handset. This makes it easier to grip. Also you have to be careful when choosing a case for this BlackBerry as it is so slim, it can be swamped in some of the cases available. It doesn't seem as robust as my last phone possibly because it is thinner.

Features I like: Good choice of apps, such as facebook, ebay. Great for messaging other blackberry users for free (BBM), easy to set up multiple email accounts, Applications such as Memo Pad great place for typing notes, Task list, Calculator and lots of other things I haven't investigated fully!

The only thing, in my opinion that lets this smartphone down is the battery life. It doesn't seem to last very long. Whether it is because I am using it more than my last phone I don't know. That for me is the only disappointing thing.

Overall I would recommend this smartphone to anyone who wants a good looking phone. I got mine on contract and am really pleased with it.

    Welcome to ciao, a decent start here but it would have been more helpful to discuss the features of the phone and how it performs rather than devoting a paragraph to why you bought a case for it. Some more detail would be good. :)
