Blackberry 8300 Curve

Anyone else have this phone??

I bought this phone this past Friday, and it was either that or the HTC phone, but I heard nothing but bad reviews on the HTC slim version.

Anyways, the blackberry is a nice phone with excellent graphics, the 2.0 megapixel camera, etc....but I hate having to go through 4 or more steps just to get to a text message. With most phones, you receive a text message and as soon as you flip it open theres a note that says "1 new message" and the word view under it. With this phone, you have to go to the envelope, open that, then go to the message and open that. Not that its a HUGE deal, but compare to other phones, this phone is time consuming with the text messages and other areas.

Dunno, most people I know pretty much live in the email/message section. Also, if I'm not there and get an SMS - it'll have a popup that I select "View" or something and it takes me right to the new message.

My '03 Sold.

I have two pearls and a 8300 Blackberry curve. With them all, we have the theme set to "BB Dimension Today" and it gives previews of all msgs. I just scroll to it and click the trackball. easy.
