I bought one and I'm not satisfy with the weak battery power. For frequent usage, you have to charge it everyday - sort of trouble.
This is my second cell phone (moving on from a Samsung A436) and I must say, it's perfect for those of us who are not necessarily super smartphone literate. The Blackberry Pearl Flip does only what you want it to (except for my tendency to accidentally hit the voice command button when I'm texting), making it very simple for people who aren't used to phones that are capable of doing more than texting and voice. RIM has given the Smartphone revolution a friendly face with the 8220, and I think this phone is definetely great for the younger generation and the female consumer population. Very stylish, and although it was my second choice to the Curve, I definetely do not regret buying it. Suretype keyboard was definetely a down side but they don't call it a smartphone for no reason, this thing gets to know your vocabulary within a couple of days, making the Suretype tolerable (although I still sort of wish it was full QWERTY).
Pretty good phone, no wonder people call them Crackberries, this thing is freaking addictive. It's my second cell phone (after a Samsung A436) and I would definetely say this is one Smartphone that isn't intimidating at all. RIM did a good job with the Blackberries, they definetely give the Smartphone invasion a friendly face.
nice phone but what i hate about it is it lacks a front 3g camera and look at the 3.5 mm jack input its on the side of the phone just imagine when u plug in a 3.5 mm headset jack in to it and when u put the phone to ur pocket it will be annoying , specially when u put it to ur top pocket of ur shirt .
lilj, 17 Mar 2009my memory chip is not showing in phone what to doIn settings open options and go to MEMORY, click on memory, click on the menu key and scroll to format, it will give a prompt that tells you all media files will be lost, chose yes and follow the steps from there. I had the same problem and it worked for me hope that helps.
the blackberry pearl is amazing and debatebly the best black berry. the trackballl is amazing and the features that the screen on the flip can do is amazing and the phone is user friendly, yes it might be a bit difficult for first time blackberry owners but you'll catch on quickly, if u want the phone buy it, you'll have no regrets.
can you set up your e-mail to only except e-mail from certain e-mail addresses and block all other addresses?
lilj, 17 Mar 2009my memory chip is not showing in phone what to doIf you are on about your memory card, then you may need to format it first before use. Though, this would mean that all data currently on the card will be lost.
princess, 16 Mar 2009does the camera work even when phone is shut? as in can take self-shots from the front without... moreI believe you know to have the phone to take photos as when shut it disables most of the functions.
does the camera work even when phone is shut? as in can take self-shots from the front without flipping open the phone?
I just got this fone 2 days ago in Red and its so beautiful!!! I LOVE everything about it.. Its my first blackberry, and at first it seemed a bit complicated from my nokia and samsung, but a day into it and everything is easy to use!! the trackball, the design and features are the best!!
I am MORE than satisfied with this fone!
I LOVE this phone. It's my first Blackberry and I love the flip design. That's why I bought it. It works great. I wish the screen was bigger but I'll sacrifice this for the design. No problems with it after over 3 months of use. Not all software is compatible but lots is. Great for my needs. It's a keeper.
philm, 06 Nov 2008do b/b have graphic equaliser in them for mp3,,can video be viewed in landscapeEvery BlackBerry (phone OS) has a Presets equalizer. Like "pop" "jazz", "bass boost" etc...
Also, don't fret if some phones don't have GPS. An alternative that some of you would like to try is Google Maps. If there's no GPS, this software uses cellular tower pin-pointing.
Not as accurate as GPS, but hey, it still works though :)
Got this phone 2 weeks ago...
Nice design, love the front panel.
Pretty slow compare to BOLD, because of the small built-in memory.
Crashes a few times, experiences some errors that sometimes requires restart to the operating system.
Freezes a few times, especially when you got a call, short message, and instant message at the same time.
I still love the phone.
