Sorry, this thread has been dead for a while, but I just wanted to get some input and share some ideas.
I upgraded from an MTS CDMA phone to a "4G" blackberry curve 9300 a couple weeks ago. It's my first BB, and I thought I would like the qwerty keyboard better than the touch screen of the iphone (which I couldn't afford anyway). I have an ipod touch, so I know what they are like, and I wanted something that was more phone
I considered going to another provider, except my contract hadn't expired, and I got impatient, so I just renewed it instead.
I'm just barely satisfied with this phone. It does the job, but it's quirky and cumbersome. I don't want to get into it, as this probably isn't in the right thread for that.
What I did want to talk about with regards to the network are reception and possible features in the future.
I've found the area that I live in to have weak to no signal, causing dropped calls and/or no service. So what I'd like to know is if this is because the new hspa network is in its infancy and not fully implemented or something. Or is it the handset? I loved my CDMA handset! I rarely had these issues.
With that being said, I see that another provider has a feature called Wifi calling (technical term is UMA, I think). I don't believe MTS offers this, but it would be a great feature. Anyone know if they might get it?
Mods, please feel free to move this if it's not the right thread.
