I wish I could help I have the same ? myself. The curve is to soon to tell. Give it a couple weeks still and read the reviews.
I want the pearl because they have it in pink..lol.Plus I did hear good stuff about it. Anyway if you have verizon you have 30 days to return it. You can always switch if you don't like it. 😎 Good Luck!
I've owned both on Sprint...and I'm sticking with the Pearl. I normally prefer a QWERTY keyboard, but I must say the call volume and clarrity is MUCH better on the Pearl. People sounded tinny on the Curve. The Curve does have better memory and is a bit faster. I do like the pocketability of the Pearl though. I don't mind SureType...it's pretty solid.
