Verizon launching the Curve on May 9, Sprint's launch delayed?
Alltel may have been first to market it, but Verizon seems to be the next one out of the gate with the CDMA Curve. It is set to launch May 9th online and in the B2B and telesales channels, with full availability May 12. Look for retail to run you $439.99, or $319.99 with a $50 rebate on a two-year contract. Sprint appeared poised for April 16, then said, it would be out by the end of April, but with the device still listed as "Coming Soon" in their system, it looks like they'll be the last to get it out.

AT&T has had the Cuve out for months.

Nobody cares about at&t. That freaking corporate piranha. Horrible coverage, false advertising. Trying to create several monopolies. Who cares!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

yeah, ATT has had it for several months, but thats why the article says "Verizon looks to be next out of the gate with the CDMA Curve". The CDMA, is actually 3G, unlike the one for ATT, and it does video recording, has more internal memory and more.

No... really? I don't think anyone knew that. And Captian Obvious emerges! Did you notice the part where the article says "CDMA Curve"?

Kind of hilarious when you think about how VZW is the largest distributor of blackberry, and 60 percent of blackberry users with other carriers have curves. Just think what would happen may 9th, vzw might be late but rules t he blackberry world. Lmao!

edge works faster with receiving emails than 3g. If VZW cust wants hi-internet speeds for their LG interface phones/pda/smart, stay home on your computer to use your myspace.

*clears throat* EDGE stands for Enhanced Data rates for GSM Evolution. EDGE operates at 2.75G although the UTI defines it as being 3G. How is it possible that a slower network, wait not just a slower network but a slower technology works better? the biggest complaint about ATT's network in general is that its not a data network. If people want cool phones they go to ATT. if they want fast connecions, reliable email services and the best coverage they go to Verizon...Period its been proven year after year.

who lied to you? Edge is crap point blank. That is why everyone in the WORLD is moving to 3g and sprint is going to 4g lol. edge lol

20. VZWREP unregistered

as well as Verizon. Sprint and Verizon will be the only true 4G networks come a year from now. EDGE is an absolute joke.
