ok since someone asked on the pros n cons of this phone..herez what I think..
BB 8320 is a great combination of biz n social needs with WiFi, camera etc (you know it all).
where it lacks is 3G, GPS and yes one of the most important things to me is software that allows me to make free VOPI calls using WiFi which you can do on a Nokia e61 or Motorola coz they use Symbian and Windows Mobile OS and there are multiple softwares available which work for them but I havnt seen one for BB devices.
Does anyone have a problem on BlueTooth, and why it doesn't pair w/ another device.
Always said Terminated after 2 seconds.
I find it odd this phone, although less looked at then its 88 series counterpart (8820) has more votes and they're negative to boot. Not too long ago, I checked the stats for the 8320 and they were all gearing towards 6-6.1 and they are all beneath the 6 mark. Explanations? All I see within the comments is the lack of 3G, where the 88 series has a lack of camera phone (seriously?).
Granted, some things in PDA phones nowadays must be standard (16M colors, MS Office and/or Mac equivalent compatibility) but it seems to me BB came a long way. I hated BBs before, when they had this rolodex thingy on the side. I stood by Palm for a while. The trackball is really a step up for someone making the transition from touch screen to none. I personnally think the 8320 should get somewhat better grades than that, unless you can tell me what would make it more efficient, as a work tool. Deduct it points for not being able to be hotswapped, to not have SDRAM or a processor to make it fast on its feet when your browsing, but lets not forget the ergonomics: its small and lightweight and fits pretty well inside the palm of one's hand.
Please let me know if I'm missing some other stuff this BBs lacking cause I'm seriously considering getting a new PDA and this one seems to top my list. What else could I get that would be better, honestly? Which must have a camera phone (I'm in design), wi-fi capability, that is lighter and smaller than the treo 650...I mean if the ergonomics werent a key factor, I'd go for a communicator and just call it a day!
I own a Blackberry Curve 8320 from T-Mobile and my sister has an 8310 from ATT and the difference is that the ATT 8310 has GPS with Telenav capabilities, but no Wi-fi while the 8320 has Wi-fi and no GPS. Personally I rather have the Telenav GPS over Wi-fi cause I travel more on foot and in a car more than I sit in a Wi-fi T-mobile spot.
i dont think this model is going to be launched in india since the 8310 has come out recently only. Looks delicious. Anyone know of it's availability in india?
hi there, I wonder which version of Blackberry could send email with attachment? Thank you
I am wondering if there is any software which allows me to make free VOIP calls using BB 8320 WiFi feature.
I have seen many such softwares avaialable on the net (ex Fring: www.fring.com) which support this feature for Symbian/Windows Mobile OS but so far I havnt seen one for BB devices which have WiFi
best business phone ever. hope blackberry releases one with video con & 3+ mega pixel camera for photographers on the go
I haven't used either, but from the specs, the only real difference is the form of the blackberry, and the 8320 has a camera(the 8820 doesn't). The difference between 8310 and 8320...the 8320 has WIFI...which pretty much makes the 8310 unnecessary. And yeah i think the ratings are too low. I doubt most people that voted actually have used it. Just because it doesn't have 3G, it doesnt make it a horrible phone.
i demand immediate response,, why is the rating for the 8320 at 6.1 and the less feature blackberries are at 7 and 8 ratings,, someone respond now
I'm just wondering if anyone could tell me which of the two are better?? The Blackberry 8820, or the 8320?? I've been looking at getting a blackberry and am going to get one with wifi, but after reading the specs, still don't know which one to go with. Any thoughts?
Got this fone since the first day it came out and like some other people said, the wifi has me sold on the phone. I work at a college and even in basements, i get full signal because the whole place has wifi. I just put skype on my phone and it is working great. So now i got a cheap plan through t-mobile then use wifi to make international calls at $29 for the whole year. If u really want to make alot of calls and have ur email on the go, this blackberry seals the deal big time and it is so small. my only problem is the placement of the memory card but i never remove mine so it is all good.
what is the difference between this and the curve 8310? I can't see any.
Can I use the phone alone for the WiFi but have no network/service on it? Like, if I was to cancel my contract with T-Mobile, can I still use the phone for the WiFi to go online?
As a Blackberry, it's got the best keyboard of all of them. I really like the UMA when I've got WiFi coverage, what was a surprise is that when my 8320 detected a T-Mobile WiFi Hot Spot in a lounge, it just picked it up and I was able to "tether" my computer to it and had WiFi access, even though I didn't subscribe to the T-Mobile HotSpot and just used my data plan on my mobile.
