This is the most amazing phone I have had yet--and yes, I have had several of them over the years. This phones capabilites are neither TOO MUCH nor TOO LITTLE. This is the dream phone for basic, down to earth cell phone users.
Wow I'm really really angry. I bought this phone under the *impression* that it would work like 'normal' phone but no, the blackberry needs to have fancy always connected features that require me to pay an additional ZAR69.00 on top of the 200 I'm already paying for the contract. This is such a waste of money. Why can't I just have an option to connect when necessary and avoid all the fancy blackberry 'special features' that have turned me away from this phone.
can some one pls help me, theres a white arrow on the top right hand side of my 8100 were the battery is. i cant make any calls or send sms's and its locked my keypads. HELP PLS
I have had my blackberry pearl for about 8 hours now and I am so damn agrevated with it that I am about to throw it out a window. None of my contacts seem to show up even though I have clearly saved them to my sim card from my old phone and I also cannot seem to get the bluetooth to work at all. I need some serious help with this phone and I have to say that the qwerty keyboard is a pain in the butt. The lady from cnet says you either love it or hat it and have to say that so far I hate it with a passion. I'm a little angry with this phone right now as if you couldn't tell. Someone please help me. My email is email@example.com
I dont like blackberry so much.
I need a camera phone witch like 3.2MP
thats why i dont like blackberry they dont have camera.
i used to have this phone....works great...i saw the update online so i decided to update to the new software.....after i update it my trackball dosent work anymore.......so they replace it...after how many months the call button dosnt work at all and sometimes it goes to phone book and dial the number automatically...so blackberry decide if they can change the phone to t-mobile dash.....and now im happy....so phone is slick design but the feature is bad....ringtone is not loud miss alot of phone calls...also it dosnt have a video.....my n70 and n73 is much better than this even though is thicker
the fact that you can message other blackberry users is pretty cool. i have my cousin from the states on my messenger, and speak to him for no extra cost, and i live in spain.
only disadvantage, no video recorder. but the new 8120 pearl has that. but the design is not as nice as the 8100.
i got this phone for free with my service and i have to say that it is the best phone i have ever had.
i have spent a lot of money on expensive high end phones and totally regret it.
i just bought a 2gb sd card, and have downloaded movies, music etc.
i receive all my office work on the phone. i am able to spend less time in my office now.
btw, for ppl that say that u aren't able to use bluetooth to transfer pics and music, you are totally wrong.
go to media in the menu. select music, pictures, video etc. (whatever you want to receive) and then press the menu button. it then says receive via bluetooth.
ou can do so mch with this phone. i think that once you go blackberry, you won't be able to go back to another phone brand. everyone should have one.
i want to know if you can record Video? i orderd a blackberry pearl but want to know if and how you can record Video..thank
i have a couple of questions first one is sometimes it wont let me dial instead it spells words instead of numbers 2. is when your text messageing is there prewritten phrases all my old phones did an this one is much better than them so i figured this one would have them too Like im on my way home i will meet you for lunch im on my way to work things you would say more than once so let me know cause i really enjoy texting but since it dont have a full keyboard would be easier thanks i do love my phone just want to use it more thanks Lisa
seriously find nothing wrong with this phone all people in here are bitching about is the camera and ringtones weel it has been well stated that this is a BUSSINESS PHONE not every day trend setter phone BUSSINESS people dont really ccare about the camera if u want a camera phone of music player get a iphone or something else but dont get a blackberry knowing that its a BUSSINESS PHONE and bitch about it sure it has the features to do those things but thats not its main purpose maybe some of you should do better research on a phone instead of getting whats flashy and has the biggest price on it
