Ive had this for a year and its still like new. Everything works perfectly, as well as hardware and software wise, and I dropped a lot. Large enterprise phone - e-mail / browser / open office docs, etc., and also for personal use, good camera, good music, msn, etc. Fantastic battery life - lasts for days and days and does not take long to recover all . Even when you have the battery icon in the lower, it will take another 12 hours. It would be now without the delay.

I bought one to replace a RIM Blackberry Curve 8300 that I dropped (several times accidentally). :-( This version is sleeker and smaller. The icon and interface design are also more refined. And the resolution of the screen is much better.

I prefer the Curve to the Bold and iPhone. It is smaller and more compact to hold. (This may have to do with the fact I am a somewhat petite female)

I have tried typing on a friend's iPhone a few times, and I really like having a key board. When I was commuting to TO on the GO train, I used it to write a lot of email and type up quick concepts for marketing campaigns.
