Ok, the biggest problem with these new phones is that they don’t come with the accessories you really need (something I’m sure the iPhone will do right). So what do you need with the curve, check the “8300 forum”:http://www.blackberryforums.com/general-8300-series-discussion/ for great information:

* 4GB MicroSD card. The manual says they can only handle 2GB, but “blackberryforums.com”:http://www.blackberryforums.com/general-8700-series-discussion/81414-4g-sd-card-bb-curve.html. It is a little sad that Blackberry won’t include $25 SanDisk 2GB card (“pricegrabber”:http://computers.pricegrabber.com/flash-memory/m/27995152/sort_type=bottomline or get it with an “SD Adapter”:http://www.pricegrabber.com/user_sales_getprod.php?masterid=29159619&lot_id=6454421

Things are a little more confusing with bluetooth headsets. The Curve now supports stereo bluetooth and “bberry.com”:http://bberry.com seems like a pretty good dedicated shop for blackberry accessories like “Stereo”:http://www.bberry.com/content/accessories/9-115.htm

“Legitreviews.com”:http://www.legitreviews.com/article/323/1/ looks at the really rather bulky Motorola HT820

Most folks seem to like the Motorola S9 for stereo bluetooth or get the “Jawbone”:http://jawbone.com if you want noise cancelling that really works but is mono only but actually looks really cool too and has a handstrap so you won’t lose it like I have three Plantronic 645s. I still have my small but very ugly Jabra JX10. It uses a cool technology where there is a sensor that detects when you are speaking according to the “founder”:http://www.blackberryforums.com/bluetooth-connection/58911-checkout-jawbone-bt-its-awesome.html. Best hint is to go to Radio Shack and buy $8 Jabra eargels and stick them on the end for a better fit and also louder sound.
