    Also would it be possible for me to transfer text messages?

    Take the memory card out, and back it up on your computer. Then put the card in the Curve, and format it. Then just move over what needs to be moved.

    Pictures taken with the camera will be in the dcim folder along with recorded videos. Your contacts should be synced up with your Google account. If not two things you can do:

    1.) Ask Verizon to transfer them
    2.) Backup assistant (if the DROID even supports it)

    There should be Google based apps that will sync your accounts though.

    You most likely won't be able to transfer text messages.

    As someone who liked blackberries before (last one I had was bold), what in the heck convinced you to try that over a newer droid/iphone?

    I can't upgrade till March 23rd, and my ex is finally giving me the blackberry back i gave him and i figured i'd use it till i upgrade..My droid right now is slowly dieing the power button doesn't work nd the volume down button doesn't work.And besides that i've been looking at the Droid Pro and Blackberry i've looked at various Droid Pro VS Blackberry and the more i looked at the blackberry's site, forums and videos the more i got attached? to it l0l so i figured i'm getting it back from my ex and i wouldn't have to pay for it

    You can try, but the OS may want you to format it. You should probably format the card anyways as there's going to be a lot of android stuff on it that is useless to BB. So might as well start fresh. If you want to you can go through the memory card and just back up what you want. Plus, I don't know how BB's set up its folder structure. They may put pictures in a different folder, and what not.

    I believe you would download google sync from the app place. Though, I'm not 100 on this. TBH I have zero experience with BB, and my only interaction with it is from my girlfriends BB. Honestly though, I would be really surprised if BB weren't able to do this natively. In my experience with iOS and WebOS they were able to add mail, contact, and calendar sync for google accounts from the add account section.

    Should be someplace in the options. Most likely under memory or storage.
