    Okay ~ I will tell you!

    I got my new Blackberry Curve! It was actually in my mail box for 5 days because I thought it was coming UPS, not regular mail. So when I called about it they said:

    "Marie, it was delivered on the 13th at 11AM."

    oops.:(

    I love it! It is $60 a month unlimited everything! And the first month is free. AND you can keep your same number ~ which I have not figured out how to do that just yet....

    Congrats! My company provides is with BlackBerries and I have had the Curve for quite a while now. While it is an extremely capable "smart" phone, its a real bitch to use on those high humidity days when you have slightly arthritic fingers!

    Congrats! New toys ARE fun! Especially tech gadgets!

    I got my two new toys last week. My husband read my mind and for my birthday bought two iPad accessories I secretly wanted but couldn't justify getting. I never told him I wanted them, nor the brands, but he got the ones I wanted: the Freedom Pro bluetooth folding keyboard and a Boxwave stylus.

    Well, if you tell us how you tether to the curve it becomes an iPad sub forum...






    (The only curve I got is beer induced and around my midsection:p)

    You so funny, Ivan. You always make me laugh and right now I am a total bitch.:mad:

    My BB is making me angry.:(. The volume is too low and I have it on 10. When it rings it is not loud enough! And choice of rings are nil as is the wall paper!

    I am so close to returning it.

    Ditto. See if it's defective hardware. My husband had a Curve 8900, I just asked him about his ringer volume and he said it was fine (not quiet). But my sister-in-laws' BB had good ringer volume, then all of a sudden it became very faint (I don't think it was a Curve though). So it might be a bad BB.

    Good idea, guys! I was going to do this today to see if they can transfer all my contacts from my old phone.

    Shitums. I hope so! I will ask about the volume. Hell, I should make a list!:D

    Check your sound profiles, not just your volume rocker. You can switch it to Loud. Should help. I love Blackberrys. I have the Sprint Bold 9650, still no wifi hotspot for tether but I can tether my laptop. Also, you can download any ringer you want, so you have tons of choices!
    Here's a funny I use the iphone ringtone on my BB!

    I have been there for an hour! I joined this morning. Talk about a big site with lots of members!

    I have tons of ringtones and wall papers. Does anyone know what the diff is between themes and wallpapers?
