It also has a 3.2-megapixel camera with flash and video capture, Bluetooth, GPS, Wi-Fi, 3.5 mm stereo headphone jack, FM radio and a 1450 mAh battery. Straight Talk BlackBerry comes with 512MB of RAM, 513 MB of internal memory and microSD card slot for up to 32GB of additional storage.
The phone comes with a support for BlackBerry Internet Service (BIS) that provides access to apps as BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) and BlackBerry App World. It is compatible with Straight Talk’s $45 unlimited monthly plan and $60 unlimited international monthly plan.
The same handset is available at Boost Mobile for $79.99. However, right now, users can get two BlackBerry Curve 9310s for $119 when entering promotional code SHAREBBM. The offer is available only on Boost Mobile’s website for a limited time. The phone can be paired with BlackBerry Monthly ($60 per month), Messenger ($45 per month) and Daily ($3 per day) Unlimited plans. Shrinking plan lowers monthly plans for $5 every six months (total $15 per month after 18 on-time payments).
Boost Mobile uses Sprint’s network while Straight Talk BlackBerry Curve is on Verizon’s larger and more reliable network.
