Does anyone ever get pain in the arms (either elbows, forarms, or wrists) from doing curls? Is this caused by bad technique?

This can be caused by bad technique but can also be caused by over exersizing. Your wrists get worked in almost every weight lifting exersize regardless of what your trying to isolate. By using straps to help your grip in exersises such as rows, chins, deadlifts, hammer curls, ect. you will take strain off your wrists and it will help. If the problem still persists try lighter weights and perhaps a break from curls. you can work your biceps in compound exersizes such as chins.

i'd say bad technique.
I'm 15 and work out 4 days a week, in which i do 6 sets on my biceps (3 on outer, and 3 on inner). And in my all around general workout, i have no pain the next day. I'd recommend getting a curled bar if you don't already have one, and do inclined curls instead, the bar i'm talking looks somewhat like this:

the thing's a godsend for me, i've been gaining more muscle, and the curve in the bar takes a lot of pressure off your wrists and arms in general.

its not really bad technique for the most part. the reason is probley as easy as you have too much weight on the bar, and your little muscles in you arm are not as strong yet. so do less weight and higher reps and slowly move up the weight that should work.

I use to have the same pain on my arms when i did curls...someone pointed out i was doing it wrong and to keep my elbow in a fixed position beside my body. Ever since i have not had the pain.

Hi, I'm 17 and I work out atleast 4 to 5 times a week depends on my free time. and I've been getting pain in my wrists and my forarms when I'm doing curls. I'm think I may be over exersizing. I do about 10reps 10 times, with a 15 second brake period in between each set of reps a day with any where from 70 to 80lbs. Am I over doing it?
