    I am getting a new Verizon Wireless phone and cant decide between the Voyager Titanium or the Blackberry Curve 8330.

    The voyager has many unworked out issues and is not nearly as functional as a blackberry. Blackberry also has a huge user base, lots of home brew apps, and a stable operating system that has evolved over the past few years. Its tried and true.

    I have a Blackberry Pearl, and it's nice but be forewarned that Blackberry and Mac (at least w/ Tiger) aren't too compatible.

    You need to either use the pocketsync software that blackberry makes available free for mac users, which is a pretty basic program, or pay around $40 for a higher end program. The pocketsync is basic, and kind of spotty. Verizon also doesn't really do support beyond reading off RIM's website if you call in for troubleshooting. You can still sync addresses/numbers etc, but I've just been disappointed with it.

    I think the touchscreen blackberry is supposed to be hitting at Verizon soon (they have the exclusive for awhile I think I heard)
