Got my back up phone for my Smart plan HTC Sen XE,my new BB9220 last Wednesday from Globe San Lazaro at UNLIPLAN P599 and P99 BBM plus P2,400 cash out,hope they activate my sim today:-)
very nice phone. im a new bb user, but this seems to be a user friendly to me. but this phone must have a flash to beat the 8520. so far so good, its a good basic phone for blackberry. very elegant slim phone for qwerty. you will like it. 9300 and 8520 is bulky.
i will apply for a plan and i will get this phone for free/ weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!
No much improvement from 8520, as it runs EDGE not 3G like 9300. 8520 & 8520 are pretty much slow esp wen running multi app cocurrently.
Even tho RIM wanted to push anada low-end phone targeting students & low class income earners. 9300 was on the right track with RAM & OS improvement to 7.1 (to include radio) 9310/20 was gonna be the cash cow on low class income earners.
jtzll, 19 Jun 2012if you like multitasking then why do you use the bb? because it's one of the slowest phones I ... moreAnd by the way, do you really use all of the 64 apps in a daily basis? specially to your work?
just curious :)

I like the way blackberry do multitasking, by pressing and holding the BB menu for a couple of seconds and switch to other apps that's it.
Since I am a heave email and texter I usually charge my BB 3x a day but its not a problem to me since I have a spare battery just incase I have to work outside the office.
Iphone is a good communication device too, but it's just me, seems that iphone is not for me.

I had an 8520 which I upgraded to 9300 and they both froze a lot so I got an Iphone and what do you know, no more freezing even when I have all and I mean All my apps running in the background, and that's about 64 of them so yeah. bb sucks when it comes to multitusking
kennyelfuego, 17 Jun 2012does dis BB suport multitasking(can u do 3-4things at same time) just like nokia symbian phone?Yes,
My friends 9220 can do BBM, receiving and sending emails, plays music, send sms, FB and YM, other apps is still running on background just a matter of switching apps to replay or post.
Currently I use 8520 and will renew my plan from Globe with the 9320 model. Multitasking is one of the features I love on Blackberry.
BB 9220 is just awesome. It doesn't have all those gig zag features of high end but really helps and satisfies minimum business requirements.i am using both samsung s3 and 9220 and i prefer for my daily mail and business the BB.. Hats off to the designer.
Bought it 2days back..awesome one...huvin grt time..

Probably Best phn in this price range...

danica, 17 Jun 2012i think its just a fair price..considering its a blackberry..:)I agree
Kazekage, 17 Jun 2012ive got both =) n8 and 9220 good partnership ;)I have the combination of Nokia C7 and BB 9220. Considering the wide range of features it provides I think 9220 is a good option for the first time BB buyers at this price range(10.5K)
best for the college-teenagers n for the officials too with smart price n affordable price n the spotlight is the radio in a BB phone which is coooooooooooooool!
BlackBerry 9220 having Echo problem;
I have bought this phone from Ezone, Mumbai and after 2 days I've noticed the Problem like whenever I'm on call i hear my own voice I reported this to the Ezone store from where I have bought the handset he asked me to go to the BB service center and report this to them and if this is the handset issue they will give you a DOA letter and then they will replace the handset, after 3 days i have got my DOA letter and again went to Ezone from where I've bought the handset and surprisingly on all the handset we were getting the same Issue we opened 3 handset brand new from the box.
BB 9220 has Echo problem on all the handset which was made in Romania
