Summary: If you are looking for a smart phone then don't get this phone, this phone does not work as a smart phone. I tried to use the wifi, it will open the window then it will prompt that you have to have a wifi connection. This is only ok to use for calling or for texting. It seems this is manufacturers unlocked because the international sim card i have works fine, i hope it will also work fine during my trip.
Summary: I have no problems with the phone because it's working fine for a used phone. The phone that i received is more scratched that they actually led on. I think its money well spent all i need is a full housing and i am good to go.
Excerpt: Just a so-so phone. They have great apps for this phone, but my main gripe is that the battery is awful at holding a charge! It goes dead in one day of moderate use. But I suppose that's a small price to pay for such a state-of-the-art phone.
The Blackberry Curve 8320 is useful, but not efficient.

Excerpt: I was super excited when I got the blackberry. Finally I could sync everything together, my computer, music, my life! Well, it did do all that but it's too slow! Since day 1 I have been having trouble with the speed of opening applications, shutting down a call. I don't know maybe I got a lemon or something, but it does freeze a lot too. I've heard the new Blackberry's are masterful, so maybe it was this series... but my experience wasn't' the best.
Excerpt: Let's face it, BBMing is a branding for BlackBerry and the Curve helped make it an artform. But the keyboard is challenging especially for those with longer finger nails. and for those with challenged eyesight, it can be very difficult to read the keys. If you are not "physically challenged" as described above, you won't be disappointed.
Excerpt: 1st of all let me say- i do not like touchscreen phones, and this one isnt. so it had to be perfect for me right? wrong. these roller ball of these things is just not compatible with a womans lotiony- makeupy- kids and food, perfumey, clenaing supplies, we just encounter too many things, that get stuck in this ball. i will say htis tho. if your husband is as handy as mine, hell pop that little ball out for ya, and clean it with a little alcohol and a q-tip!
Serves it purpose as a smartphone but slow due to lack of 3G

Excerpt: The curve 8320 is an average smartphone at best. It's technology is outdated eventhough it came out when 3G was availble. The menus are not user friendly to navigate and the apps are a joke compared to the competition. The phone cannot handle calls and data at the same time. Due to this interoperability, calls are dropped frequently.
Excerpt: The Blackberry Curve 8320 is a typical RIM Blackberry cell phone. Though it has 3G and WiFi connections, it's limited app store (unlike the iPhone and its App Store) makes it only a adequate device in my opinion. Though it has a full keyboard, the keys are very small which leads to many typing errors. Additionally, there is no predictive typing, which means having to type ever single character unless you use auto-text entries. Surfing the web is absolutely a horror.
Excerpt: My dad owns this phone and I have used it numerous time, first of all I know blackberry's thing is to have that ball in the center of it but I really don't like the way it looks or feels. Its hard to navigate and freezes up often, the phone itself is very slow to respond even the ball let alone buttons. It looks alright, and like I said about the ball in the middle I don't like it but if it had to be there it looks good where it is.
Excerpt: The Blackberry Curve 8320 was my first smart-phone, which I paid $60. I think it was a good first smart-phone because it provided me with the basic calendar, organizational, and email functionality that I needed. My favorite feature of the blackberry curve was the keyboard. I also liked how easy it was to interface with Microsoft Office products, which I used on a daily basis. However, the blackberry curve didn't offer much else.
