I have had the BB-8800 from T-Mobile USA for about two weeks. T-Mobile tech. support has been great. I admit the software was not as easy to understand as Palm...but all-in-all it very nice.
It handles e-mail, sms, and mms perfect. That was what I needed and it's a 10 in that regard.
Bluetooth headset was easy!
I have a Macintosh, and it's fully campatible using the BB for mac software.
Phone is load and clear.
No issues so far.
Wish, however, it had a camera. I do miss that. But, if I had to exchange the texting functions for a camera...I'd keep it the way it is.
Had it 19 days thru Cingular and it don't work and they caint fix it.
Ditching it today with tears in my eyes. Poor RIM, I hope it aint Cingular screwing you over.
Thanks Ben, i set this for 10 digits. after this in side pakistan number start displaying NAMES. But it does not suits for out side pakistan numbers. If increase it to 15 digits. In this case it start to dsiplay out side pakistan number NAMES. and discountinue in side pakistan number NAMES.

For anyone with phonebook issues, press the call button (green) then press options and go to smart dialling. Choose your countries county code and then phone numbers will be displayed. We had that issue in the uk, a tiny fault that is easily rectified!!!
i bought it 3 days before. its ball is good but hard to press. old 8700 wheel was good to handel. It is slow than 8700, one strange fualt is. phone book names not display. number displayed when sms or call arrive. mobilink pakistan says it is phone soft ware problem because mobilink is selling this in pakistan his self in monople way. they said fualt removing request has sent to canada to phone supply company. i am not satisfied from this phone. price they is high too mobilink is selling at 475$. and used phones has zero market value. please give comments.
my 8800 is completely flat, so is an even width and depth all the way. The buttons are recessed a little, but then stick out so you can feel them fine.
All in all, pretty cool, the maps work well (unless your in New Zealand when they just don't work!) and it's a quick device. The centre wheel is much better than the old side trackwheel.
And best of all, I got it through work! Obviously to get the most you really do need a BES server, linked to Exchange / Lotus Notes and everything will synch over the air, very cool in that respect! Then with Idokorro or similar you can do remote admin etc, so well worth it.
It's a bit wide but slimmer than the old 8700g and much nicer than the 7210 / 7290's.
Can anyone with a BB 8800 answer my question? At the bottom of your handset, does it appear that the front part is sticking out longer than the back cover? Does anyone see that??
Has anyone used this is a tethered modem at all? How fast is the EDGE connection. Would it be good/fast enough to use it instead of a broadband connection? Thanks
black berry handset is good for other mobil
u creat 10 e-mail configur and push technologi :- real-time resive mail this is
I have BB8800 and its awesome.Especially while travelling its give so much of ease. Got rid of opening laptop for checking some small important mails!! Wish it could have few more seperate options of vibration + ringtone for sms,emails, phones to differentiate them.
i happen to think that this bb is the best yet for buisness use and am happy to say that i have one.
Hey just got the 88hundo for 250$canadian good choice? I definatly thought so.
you guys dont seem to understand... BBs are targeted towards businesses... not regular average joe... the BB is for the exec person and managers therefore, most if not all companys dont allow cameras for copyright and forgery(sp?) reasons... get over yourselfs and accept that the BB if for the business person not someone that wants it all in a phone.
the BB has the most stable OS out there. i have owned both symbian and windows os phones/pdas and all they do is crash, freeze or something... i now have a BB and have never once had to restart or pull the battery because of a freeze or restart...
like i said if you want a phone with a mp3 player or/and camera go elsewhere, these PDAs/phones are for the businesses! get used to it...
I need a phone with good email capabilities and am looking looking at the BB 8800 or SE P990i which are the best high end choices currently available in Jamaica. If it can be confirmed that putting the blackberry connect software on the S/Ericsson P990i makes the GPRS email more reilable and functional, then I would rather that phone over the BB 8800. Does the P990i have voice activated dialing (VAD) comparable to the 8800?...Lastly if the BB curve 8300 becomes available here in Jamaica within a month, would it be a better option to the P990i. The two major GSM providers offer blackberry GPRS email service.
Our whole company uses blackberries and I work for Rogers wireless myself. There is abseloutly nothing special about this device. it's waaay slower than 8700 and alot bigger. the keyboard on 8700 is still alot more friendlier and faster to type vs. 8800. the GPS does work but very very slow and laggy. beside the voicecommand option and some multimedia options which are useless I wouldn't recommand anyone to move from 8700 to this device. sadly i'm using it myself but it's really big waste of money to upgrade. Blackberry did a horrible job on this product.
Lots of people are complaining that there is no camera; who cares! The only thing that i wish it had was wifi but still no big deal. The phone is excellent, no real complaints here.
Had the 8700 - got the 8800 as an upgrade. Maps for the UK are excellent - I live in the middle of nowhere and the detail at street levels still fantastic. I pay £10 a month on o2 for the unlimited data, unlimited blackberry and unlimited yahoo and once the satellites for gps are found it gets the maps in seconds (usually)
