I've owned my Blackberry Curve 8530 for 2 months with service through Sprint, I'm 90% thrilled with this all in one phone. I previously was with Verizon on an LG Envy 2 and loved that. This blackberry was an upgrade for me and I'll highlight the pro's and con's that I've found with my personal experience.

Pro's- The touch pad/button is a HUGE upgrade from older "roller ball" models, it's sensitivity is adjustable and doesn't have the "lock up" issues it's earlier model had. It has a full 35 key QUERTY pad, which means you type as though you would on a regular computer keyboard. The keys are ergonomically positioned in a curve to help fit your fingers as you type. It has programmable shortcut keys on the side of the phone, set as default, the right hot key is the camera feature. The phone takes GOOD photos with the 2 Meg camera, DECENT video w/zoom features, and both have nicely built in easy to email, FaceBook and MMS (text)shortcuts. I use the memory card as I tend to keep alot of pictures and video for personal review. The phone comes with a load of useable apps already on your phone, including Sprint Nagivation, one of my favorites! This navigation program is very impressive with built in turn by turn directions, zoomable maps indicating your exact remote location, and points of interests. I cannot comment on the music features, I never use this. The games that come loaded on the phone are awesome, Brick Breaker, Texas Hold Em Up King 2, Sudoku, Klondike, and my personal favorite is Word Mole. The built in Blackberry Apps button is very handy, there are lots of add on's here for specific users including Ticketmaster, Worldmate Travel, WWF Earth Hour APp, Scoremobile for Sprint,Rock Star Theme w Guitar Riff Tone, Snaptu Moblica, Poynt (SUPER AWESOME!

I picked up the Blackberry Curve 8520 with my corporate discount and walked away with a nice phone at a very reasonable price. I have to say that I really enjoy the web browser on the new BB. You can zoom in & out with ease. I thought no browser could compare to the iPod Safari besides the Android G1, but after getting this device - I can safely say that this browser is also one of the best. Its right behind the safari and G1. Prior models were confined to small screens, thirty-five dollar internet only data plans, and no ability to zoom in or out. You were subjected to a small screen and reading small text till your eyes was squinting like grandmas.

Nice price for new smartphone users
Nice fashion colors that only the CURVE series has
3.5 MM headjack
Nice form factor
New OS (ONly 5.0 OS for SPrint and Verizon users)
Decent call quality (No issues yet)
Excellent new broswer
Mini SD up to 16GB (Wish it was 32GB)
Use your songs as ringers
Personal Email (Up to 10 accounts can be added)
BB Meesenger
BB App World
Full HTML Web Browser (Sometimes)
Excellent Multimedia Player (Accepts every format possible)
Crystal clear screen for playing videos
Includes 2 chargers (Wall Charger & USB charger)
Includes ear phones

For long time BB users, this device is really just a cosmetic upgrade with a new OS (Flashier Icons)
Micro USB (No more Mini USB)
No Flash on the camera
Only one theme
Feels like a plastic toy
No threaded text messaging
Poor screen resolution
Non RIMM Consumer Changes Mind!
No 3G (ONly 3G for Sprint and Verizon users)

Good entry level smartphones for new users who want to save without paying the high price. However, Verizon has pricey data and text messenging plans which are a requirement. Its hard to justify the plan prices for such an average entry level device.
