Slim and affordable like its predecessor, the BlackBerry Curve 3G 9330 for Verizon Wireless is a great choice for those who need to be connected to work, friends and family while on the go. The easily pocketable Curve 3G features a comfortable full-QWERTY keyboard for fast, accurate typing, optical trackpad for fluid navigation, and dedicated media keys so you can easily access your tunes while on the go.



Balance your busy life at work and home with the BlackBerry Curve 3G (see larger image plus a schematic image of the controls).

Staying Connected

With BlackBerry's push e-mail technology, your e-mail will find you without having to initiate a connection. BlackBerry devices are designed to remain on and continuously connected to the wireless network, notifying you as new e-mail arrives. In addition to the text, you can also receive and view attachments in a wide range of popular file formats, including Microsoft Office, Corel WordPerfect, and Adobe PDF.

Browse the web with the integrated, full-featured browser, which quickly and efficiently displays HTML pages as well as enables you to set up RSS feeds to stay connected to up-to-the-minute news and blog posts. And keep up with your contacts using a variety of instant message (IM) networks, including the integrated Blackberry Messenger as well as downloadable clients for Google Talk, Yahoo! Messenger, and Lotus Sametime.

For corporate users, this BlackBerry device delivers all the enterprise e-mail and messaging capabilities you've come to expect. It's supported on the BlackBerry Internet Service, giving you access to up to 8 work or personal e-mail accounts (including most popular ISP e-mail accounts), as well as BlackBerry Enterprise Server, enabling advanced security and IT administration within IBM Lotus Domino, Microsoft Exchange and Novell GroupWise environments.

4.0 out of 5 stars A solid performer May 26, 2011
By RMS
The BlackBerry Curve 9330 is solid and reliable. It won't knock your socks off if you are expecting an actual "smartphone." This is a BlackBerry, after all, and meant more for messaging than web browsing. The web browser works fine, but the limited screen size takes its toll.

The 6.0 software upgrade - - long in coming - - is mostly welcome in that it makes everything prettier, but, as in the case of the Options function (the little thing that looks like a wrench) the plain, old vanilla version was easier to scan through. It lacks the familiar "About" category, for instance, making it a treasure hunt to find out just what model and version you have. But don't worry, you'll figure it out and the Help function actually helps.

Companies buy a lot of these because they are solid performers at a reasonable cost. And you won't be disappointed if you end up with one.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor battery life July 28, 2011
I've been a blackberry fan for years. Great experience with my curve 8330. I decided to go modern and it's been an awful experience to have purshased the Curve 3G. It's been a month since I bought it and have changed it 6 TIMES!!! Six different Curve 3g, and still the same problem. The first week and a half, flawless. All of a sudden the battery starts lasting only 4 to 5 hours with the phone NOT being used, and everything turned off (data, wi-fi, back light, etc.). Unfortunately, I'm stuck with a contract. What happended RIM?
