I'm with Verizon and would prefer a blackberry because of the QWERTY keypad. I just want to be able to get emails, check facebook, listen to talk radio and take photos. Will the Bold do all of that? How about the Curve?

They're sold phones but they're old, don't pay more than free for them.

Motorola Droid 4 has a nice big keyboard.
Either that or wait 2 or 3 months for the BB Q10.
No way I'd suggest anyone get those old BB's.

I agree with Peregrine. BB has no comparison with iPhones and other modern smart phones. I remained struck with BB for a long time but finally got rid of it. Now I have Motrolla Droid 4. It is a great substitute for Black Berry.

Gotta agree that the BB Bold and Curve are ancient technology now and not a good choice for many. I wouldn't pay any money for one. They do work in a pinch, but are very dated. The older BB devices will NOT have access to the LTE data networks. The new BB 10 has a virtual keyboard like iPhones and most Android devices.

Motorola Droid 4 is displays that a dual-core, 4G LTE Android slider phone with a QWERTY keyboard is likely. With very quick data races and a large typing experience, the teleteletelephone also serves up pleasing call quality over Verizon's network.

The BlackBerry Z10 (touchscreen), which launched in the U.S. 2 weeks ago, is the most advanced phone in the market now due to its new OS. The BB10 operating system is fast, fluid and intuitive. The phone is a tool and not a toy like Apple and Android. Apple and Android's operating systems are buggy and easy targets for hacking. 45% of global BlackBerry Z10 users have switched from Apple and Android and this will rise as the new phones gain traction. In addition, the BlackBerry Q10 with QWERTY keyboard (w/ the new BB10 O.S.) launches in April in the U.S. Four additional BlackBerry mid-level phones are scheduled to debut this year. This is good for us consumers as we have another choice instead of the duopoly of iOS/Android and Windows phones. Competition is always welcomed. BlackBerry is back!

-Cheers!

Gotta agree with that!

When he grows up, he will realize the ridiculous comment he made.
