BlackBerry Curve vs ATT Tilt

BlackBerry Curve vs ATT TiltAfter getting a 1-800 number for my freelance business (btw, I do web development, if you haven’t noticed), I decided to invest on my business’s mobility. I am looking to upgrade my basic AT&T Wireless phone to a better performing PDA/SmartPhone. Since, I can’t change my phone number yet, I have to stick with AT&T and select one of their phone upgrades.

After researching a little on the available upgrades, I finally short listed 2 phones: BlackBerry Curve 8310 and AT&T Tilt. This article is produced as a summary of my research report. This comparison has many sources, and most of it is through various communities.

  1. ya so

    I have the tilt phone. Personally I think it’s a lot better than the BlackBerry Curve. Who cares if it is bulky? I mean it’s still the best phone i have ever had. My brother has the BlackBerry Curve and he said he hates it and wants my phone.So I don’t know if my comment will help but i think you should go with the tilt.
