BlackBerry for Boost?

I'm thinking about getting this, but was wondering if anyone has it on Boost? I know that Boost if notorious for gutting the phones to being so simple that they might not be worth the buy like the Clutch i465.

Is buying memory necessary?

I just got this phone and I didn't get a memory card at the time. I'm wondering if people find it's a necessity with this phone? The rep at the Verizon store said that it can help your phone run faster by having extra memory. What exactly can be moved from the phone onto the memory card?

I charged my Curve 8330 last night - to 100%....this morning , at about 7:30AM, I noticed it had only 55% battery life.....then , at about 9:30 AM , I am on a voice call when all of a sudden the call seems to drop, but, the phone looks as if it powered off, got an hourglass.....then, the battery meter was in the red.....I am charging my phone as we speak.

My Blackberry is roughly 6 months old - has anyone experienced a problem like this ??

Definition of "disabled"

I've always wondered...when a feature like WIFI or something like that is disabled does that mean the capability is present in the phone but it's been made inoperable or does it mean the phone does not have that component installed at all?

Verizon no longer selling 8330???

I've read in several places, and seen on the Verizon site, that they are no longer selling the 8330. Shocked Does that mean those of us with the 8330 won't be able to get OS upgrades from Verizon? Do they just stop all support for the phone? Just a little concerned as I love my 8330, and don't want to have to change any time soon. Some of the newer software is compatible with the 5.0 OS, so I was just wondering.

Need a little help

Just could use some assistance with moving the pictures in my media folder. Once I went in to the photos, and created a new folder where I want to move some photos, and select the picture and click MOVE, I'm not sure what to do from there, they don't seem to go where I want them to go! Any help is appreciated, you can laugh if you want, as I can assure you I already feel pretty dumb... lol

Also, trying to apply a message tone to BBM?

Thanks in advance!

Ringtone help? Keep disappearing --

I have a bunch of ringtones on my memory card and I just put it into the Curve from my LG phone.

I go to set a ringtone for a particular person and the ringtone title shows up but there is a 0.00 next to it. SO, I waited and tried again after 10 minutes and then all of the songs were there where they showed the amount of memory that they are taking up.
I set a particular person s ringtone and then went back to it....they're gone again!!!

Any ideas?
