I probably won't watch much TV, I'm not sure what stations it gets, but if it gets a football game while I'm riding in the car somewhere, that would be the shiz... I wonder if it grabs local stations or if it's like sprint network stations or what... hmmm

I do like the instant messaging on the curve... hmm

Instinct has Live TV.


TV on a phone. :-b

I cannot for the life of me even phantom watching anything on a screen that size.


The battery life will only be in the range of 10 minutes for live TV. %-6

I'll be in the market for a new phone once my Verizon contract is up (I'm going to switch providers) and will probably get a Blackberry Curve or any other 3G phone that has solid Internet and can run apps. The next-generation iPhone and Samsung Instinct are surely on my watch list.

I have the simple Motorola Rockr and I love it because it eliminated my mp3 player. That's enough for me for now especially since we don't have any high-speed wireless networks here. :-/


And Ellen on the Go!!!! That's pimp man. :-D

Don't get the Motorola Q...they probably don't even make the stupid thing any more anyway. Battery life was horrible and not the best performance...can't wait till my contract is up at the end of this month...will be watching to see what everyone recommends!

from what I've read of user reviews The instincts battery is far superior to the Iphone and you get 2. They give you a spare battery in The package for the instinct. To tell the truth, I'm still 50/50 here. I know more people Who have Curves and Blackberry's have been around for so long that they have so many programs and hacks out there.

Don't you have to get a Blackberry (data) plan if you get a Blackberry? I've got ATT right now and I think they make you take a more expensive data plan with their Blackberries, so you should check to see if Sprint does something similar.
The cake is a lie.
