Yesterday I got my hands on a new Curve 3G 9330 from Verizon (review to follow) and decided to fire it up and install OS 6. Through much trial and error I finally got OS 6.0.0.222 installed and running. Overall I can say it runs very smooth. All of the features are there and nothing is laggy or sluggish at all. As expected, OS 6 brings along some very cool features to the device like Social Feeds, Universal Search, updated calendar, multiple views and much more. Again we have to keep in mind that the Curve 3G is really an entry-level device for new users, so even though it may seem "cheap" or outdated to some, people who are new to BlackBerry and just need the basics can still get it all on the Curve 3G. Check out the video above, and stay tuned for the full review. In the meantime you can read Bla1ze's review of the Rogers Curve 3G here.

Where's the leaks for the GSM (non Torch) phones? Why are us GSM users the last to get the update?

It looks like a nice device but not for me. You seem a little down in the video. If you are, hope things get better!!

The form factor for thise with the keys sticking out looks fugly, they shpuld go back to the 8900 look....sexiest BB ever.

Yum, but I want a leak for the 9700!

That reads blogs and gets extremely mad that all these OS 6 are coming out and none for Bold 9700?.. the first device shown running OS 6 after the Torch... WTF?? RIM... I hope we don't have to wait for the release of the Bold 9780 first... if so... thats Bold-ish.

so whats left for memory after the install?

I'm interested in knowing what's left of the memory after loading OS6 as well.

Since the 9330 appears to be the only current CDMA BB that is M4/T4 HAC, I'll be getting it to replace my 8330.

Same specs so it shouldn't be hard to make a hybrid.

"May seem outdated to some"?!?
It has a better processor than the 9650...

frozenbee

I don't understand why everyone is so down on this device.Yes, I'm disappointed RIM didn't give the 9330 the 8900's camera features and screen but it's better than the Tour.

I am DYING for a leak for my 9300!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I got it SOLELY for the fact that I want the OS6 platform!!

new yorker kid

Damn, I wish I could download the BlackBerry 6 OS to my BlackBerry Curve 8530.

meaku15

is there one for 9000?? or it will never work?? Please let me know

markwmilligan

When is coming BB06 for Curve 8520 coming out?

I am not sure why you call this an entry level device. There seems to be very little this phone won't do. I can view videos, pictures, cruise the internet, play games, use GPS, create documents, read eBooks, etc. Oh yeah, I can even use it to make phone calls. I am not new to smart phones and I think this is a great one.

And it's lighter and smaller BY FAR than my old broken Storm.... Only thing I miss is the touch screen typing, although on the Storm it's off where it should be, alignment-wise.

Hello people,

Last week I bought a BB Phone 9330 on Mexico with Iusacell company, but this phone have a
OS5.0 (upgrade to 6.0), but on RIM website not appear this official version 6.0
for BB 9330.
The model BB 9300 have a OS6.0
My question is...there will be an update for this phone 9330 to 6.0..??

I waiting your response...

Regards....
