I have the phone for about 2 months now and it's works great! i love the phone. can't put it down im always online!
It's really difficult to criticize this phone, having previously owned a sony ericsson P901 touchscreen phone, the 8100 has all the features of the smart phone, but very much easier to use, looks great, over 8 hours of talktime, battery charging from USB, etc, etc, etc! Where's the catch? Well it doesn't support infra red, there's that irritating pause between mp3 tracks and you'll always miss the moment when taking pictures - there's a lag. But hey, It's a phone, what more can you ask for. I'd give it a 8 for helping me organise my personal and business life to a 100% and you can tell that they asked the regular Joe what they'd want in a phone.
I am having the worst luck with this phone. I love it (when it works)but I have had the phone for just over 3 months now and am having to replace it...AGAIN, my 3rd phone in 3 months!! I had a software issue within the first 30 days and now my phone will not turn on, or respond at all. I am frustrated that this has not been more reliable... anyone else having problems??
I am definately no gadget man, I have been dragged into the 21st Centuary.
I was dreading getting started but it was so easy and user friendly even I could do it.
Its brilliant because when you want to do something new the process makes sense.
I do not have any reason to say this apart from the fact that I would like to help other people like myself in making an easy move. This is IT.
my pearl is having a problem recognizing the in coming call number if the number is not exactly as mentioned in the address book.ie,if the number in the address book includes the country code it will not recognize it and vise versa which is realy anoying.normally all cell phones uses the last 6 digits for comparing phone numbers in recognizing the incoming calls.
need urgently a solution for this problem cause i cannot identify the incoming calls.
thanks in advance.
hey i have a problem with this phone, specifically the camera. The camera works fine, like you can see what you're taking, but when you took the picture already, it shows a green-ish picture? all of the pictures turn out to be like that.
I need Tech. Support my blackberry Pearl is not working properly I am not hearing the phone ring when making out going calls and incoming is not ringing either. Once the home screen changed and the colours got lighter can anyone advise me on how to correct this problem?
How can you receive files with bluetooth in this phone because I cant do that. Can someone answer?
well i am on my third blackberry pearl first my screen went out on me and the second turned off and wouldn`t turn back on ,now my company is saying if something happend to this one i have to send it back to blackberry..... i am not happy yet will keep you posted!
can i add the application blackboard to my blackberry and if so how could i do so ??
I was hoping someone could help me with a problem I have with my 8100. It seems most of the calls I receive have a delay and people either cannot hear me or something, has anyone got any idea how to fix this frustrating problem.
blackberry pearl looks very slick and also the design has a great feel to it.
overal the battery life isnt too bad, im actually always out of my office most times so its the right phone for emails, i find the keypads are very easy to use, and the suretype is just great. and the tracking ball is very easy to move around!.
they could of made it slightly better with louder sound quality and also call quality on blackberry isnt that great.
you can change fonts and also themes . very good phone . i would actually rate it 7/10 .
i just got the pearl, but i cant figure out how to access the media on my micro sd memory card, its photos from my old phone (samsung) and mp3 ringtones. can anyone help>? thanks
Can any one tell me that, if i wish to use this divice in a EDGE/GPRS network like nokia phones like wap/internet settings as other phone and browse
Hi there, I run a small Security business and I just signed up today for the $79 Blackberry Pearl 8100. I have read all the comments and I look forward to letting you guys know how it works.
All I want to do is be able to recieve emails and send emails. While I am not at the office I am told by Optus that the phone will recieve emails as well as the computer. So I can either delete fron the phone which will also remove from the computer if I wish.
Optus gave me a blackberry direct number and told me that when i recieve the phone I can ring that number and they will sort me out.
Well I will do that and let you know how I get on. Again all I want to do is be able to access emails from my Vehicle and down the track use excel on it sometimes.
