This has to be the worst example of a smart phone. My company switched from the iphone to this and it is nothing but problems. I never know if it's going to work. About 1/2 of the time it doesn't. I don't think they could make it any slower if they tried. I'm on my second blackberry in less than a month. Incredibly unreliable.

The Blackberry phones are designed for sending and receiving Emails, Chats and all the possible internet stuff
Now listen to this carefully
This phone is compatible with CDMA and GSM Network
If you are using this phone with the CDMA network one will need to insert a data card into the USIM slot to access the internet
(the data card needs to ne inserted in the same slot where you would need to insert the USIM for a GSM card if you want to use the GSM services)
if you are using the CDMA network and have inserted a GSM usim one will not be able to use the internet while on CDMA

If the phone is on CDMA you will need to insert a Data card in the sim slot so that one can get the internet access on the CDMA Network
IF at all you are using the CDMA network and if you have inserted a GSM USIM in the phone one will not be able to use the internet while on CDMA Network

I think meny of my friends would be using the 8830 with the Blackberry OS 4.2 i am using this handset with the Blackberry Os 4.5 and it works good
I am not happy with the performance of the phone with either of the OS. I have used the phone on Vodafone and Airtel I have similar issues with the phone on both the network in India
issues with Vodaphone network: Was never able to browse on the phone the phone use to connect for some time to the internet maximum for 5 to 10 min and then the phone would disconnect
Mails are never delivered on time
Issues on Airtel Network: The network supports 30kb/s
but the maximum spped that i was able to use on the phone was 3Kb/s only once and all the other time the speed was 1 to 2Kb/s
Mails are never on time
the phone looses the packet data very frequently this is noticed with both the networks
hence have to reset the host routing table all the time before using the internet
Love Pratik.........

I recently bought it and using it in Airtel GSM Network, India Network. It is really great for Corporate users. I find that the productivity level goes up.I use the phone more and receive good number of emails. The battery is lasting for 2 days.

Question....

Can somebody let me know how this works on GSM & CDMA ... has anyone been able to work this on two networks?

I wanted to know coz I would like to roam outside Canada/US and I don't want to be bringing a phone that will end up not working.
