Nice entry level device, the new Boost Mobile BlackBerry Curve 9310 is the best option for people to just make phone calls, and exchange messages via email/text/IM. when it comes to the bread and butter of communication, no one does it better than blackberry. tried android and iphone, and boy is it cumbersome to message on those things.
As of the release of the BlackBerry Curve 9310, Boost will now be allowing their customers to activate a Blackberry on the $45 Unlimited Talk and Text plan with the ADDED bonus of BBM. This is for those that want the superior Blackberry keyboard but do not need data. For those of us that need that data functionality, the $60 Unlimited Talk, Text, and Data is still available.
