i gave this to my dad and i bought a nokia n73 no video recording here camera is really bad
i have been using blackberry since last 2 years and i find it to be quite user frendly and the battery life is too good to be true its last so longggggggg and i am going to upgrade to the new one in next couple of weeks, and mind you optus plans are not bad atall, i would say the blackberry 79 cap is the best voice and data plan available in market.
Sorry AJM, what you have commented is absolutely wrong. I am a nokia fan. But after using the pearl I have started liking it. Its only how u accept change in ur life
Just got the Pearl and NOT happy with it as it not very user friendly. Save your money and buy a nokia and stay away from Optus.
Wondering if anyone has had a problem with the handset and mic not working on this phone. I purchased one recently and it does everything fine, but when i place and receive calls. I am wondering if its just software or if i just got a lemon, lemme know
Hi my company is thinking about getting a BES set up. We have been givn two Blackberry models by the phone company The Pearl and the 8700. The Guys from the phone company said that the Pearl is really fragile. Is this true? Which is the better phone ?
This sucks,media player and it's micro SD expansion sucks too.
Buy Sony Ericsson w810i instead (has awesome internet browser,email,wow digital camera w/flash,awesome radio tuner,easy navigation for mp3,watch video streaming,easy download MPEG4 videos...You won't be sorry! Cheap also under $350 check ebays ;)
I had a hard time finding it too, but you go to the menu, under 'profiles', then scroll to the bottom where it says 'advanced...', choose which profile you want to adjust, and then choose which notification you want to change from the list ('SMS text' for text messages, 'Phone' for any incoming calls, etc.)
Hope this helps!
How to clean the pearl on the 8100, i m having trouble with moving it to the right on the menu. Scrolling up, down and left is fine, scroling to the right is a problem. Any suggestions?
Very nice versitile little phone, email device, etc etc after a couple of weeks of using it a blackberry is now indispensable. Only comment is; key pad is a bit shiny(hard to see) and 'retro' for my liking, looking forward to the 8310 model.
I have a small business and am looking to buy a Blackberry Pearl so I can view emails when I am away from the office. The network providers I have looked at offer BlackBerry Internet Solution™ as an additional monthly cost.
Do I need this in order to view my emails?
Any advice/help you can give would be helpful
Just got one of these through work, I used to work for Vodafone and have used A LOT of phones in the last 3 years but this is the best phone I've ever had/used. It's the perfect balance of weight, design and function. Know it's not 3G but I don't miss that, and no wifi either but I got over that very quickly. With the ability to still run things like Google Talk and Google Maps along with all the other standard Blackberry stuff, it's great. Highly recommend it.
hi just got the blackberry what a great phone but can can any body help out with changing the text message notification sound and e-mail notification..thanks
I used to be a Nokia user & i thought i wld try the BB pearl phone;I loved its light weight, "pearl" usage, internet & email connectivity, "safe" box, locking system. However the major disadvantages which i take as something granted is as follows:
* No linkage between the SAME # if it is written with country code or without. ex. If u save a # such as 050 6541567 with the corresponding name "Henry" & u receive a call from Henry +971 50 6541567, the name "Henry would not appear" & vice versa. It is very irritating when the network u r on sends the telephones WITHOUT country code so then u have to save them WITHOUT the country codes so that the name "Henry" appears, & then u go roaming & u want to call "Henry"; hence u have to edit the number to put country code & then dial
* NO sign of "call waiting" when u call someone & this someone is busy on the phone with someone else
* Mixing between emails from different email boxes & sms messages in the messages box
* Mixing between received, sent & missed calls & thus limiting the total # of calls to 20
If anyone can help me with these 4 main problems, i think this will be the perfect phone
If not, i will have to change it with Nokia E61i
Thanks & Regards,
my frend won a blackberry and i think its super cool but there is one thing i am struggling with..we cant seem to find the vedio recording on it..can any one help?
