Purchased a curve a little over a year ago, and to be quite frank, its the worst phone EVER!!! It broke after only 5 months of having it, so they sent me a "new" one, guess what....this one is broke too... It is the only means of communication that I have, and now because it is saying I have no service, I cant even call to get it fixed. Verizon and the blackberry have been the WORST mistake I have ever made in my life!!!!!
