I have a 8330 and my wife has a 8330m. I tried to install a program, basic flashlight program, from the BlackBerry App Store and the App Store did not recognize her phone as a valid phone for this app when it did so for my phone. My question is what are the differences in these phones? I thought it was just the new OS was added to the phone but it looks like there is something else.
Summary: Sprint has recently changed the hardware for all new BlackBerry 8330 Curve phones. This change was made to support Sprint's new standard of using the Mobile Equipment Identifier (MEID) instead of an Equipment Serial Number (ESN) for phone identification. As a result of the new hardware, the way customers receive incoming Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) messages will look different.
So, with what you posted the 8330m is different enough to be classified as a another model? I know that looking at the BlackBerry App World on my wife's phone is different. I think that this hardware upgrade limits the phone's potential. Not too pleased...
