Does pandora work well on BlackBerry 9330

The exact name of the phone I'm thinking of buying is "BlackBerry Curve 3G 9330 Social Messaging Ready smartphone". My provider is VerizonWireless. I will be using their network not wifi.

    well, with any phone, it will only be as good as your carrier.
    So the question is whether your Verizon carrier will seamlessly stream...

    True, I guess my two questions are is 3g up to it or not? I've heard VzW navigator lags unlike a regular GPS. Missing an exit and doing a u-turn is doable but I'll go nuts if Pandora pauses every 5 minutes for 30 seconds. I'd rather not even go down the path of getting a phone with a data plan if Pandora doesn't work.

    The equipment could be a factor too. The model I'm looking at is $50. Other BB's that look the same are $200+. I assume the high dollar models have more under the hood. Is this extra horse power critical for music to stream without interruption?

    Pandora works fine over 3G for me on my Android phone. DroidX. .The extra hardware under the hood will come into play if your phone is doing many tasks at once, but with just Pandora running, then most any recent BB should work fine.

    I personally have stopped using Pandora mostly though in favor of Google Music on Android.
