8100 is great phone and email device, the only downfall is the media aspect. There is lag when playing mp3s, a major lag when playing videos over 1 meg, interface of the media player could be better and the camera's flash is very poor. Like I said these are media features. But as a phone it works great. Good voice quality, good reception and decent battery life.
its good phone but when it comes to video it doesnt play avi format as it say that it does and show error even when i try diffrent format
I just went in store to have a look at the Pearl as I am very keen on getting it, but I couldn't find any Voice Memo options on it. Does anyone know if the Pearl has voice memo capability?
(As in make a voice note, save and retrieve later)
Just got my blackberry pearl and its ace, ive never had a phone that does alot but this does everything. Cant get bluetooth to work like but oh well, a dead stylish phone!!!!
I have read that on 8700 you cannot create a new email and attach a document. You can only send an attachment by forwarding an email with an attachment.
Does anyone know how this can be done on 8100 pearl? As in my work I would find the camera useful.
hi, can someone tell me about the calling quality. Can you hear the person's voice loud & clear or is it a weak point in this phone?
I have owned the Blackberry 7100, 7105, and numerous other phones. The 8100 Pearl is a dream come true. The features are state of the art. If your in the market for a phone this phone has Camera, Photo caller I.D., Mapping Softwear, MP3 player, Video Player, great Voice Dailing,internet and email.
A great buy for anyone.
on a scale of 1 to 10,how good is the blackberry? is it worth me gettin one?
For those of you who are having the problem where when you make a call or receive a text and the persons name isnt coming up heres a fix! press the Green (Call) button, press menu and go to your options, then smart dialing and go to country code and select +44 (if your in the uk obviously) and it'll fix the problem!!!
blackberry is a very high security, planning, email, instant messaging device that runs on EDGE / EGPRS
this device does not have wifi
you must use your service providers data network if available
does anyone know if this device can be SAFELY unlocked yet?
you will have to go into media n choose ringtones, music, video, or picture folder
then while inside you must press blackberry logo button
choose receive files from bluetooth
crackberries are very high security
u must do it that way in order to transfer files
u must also pair the crackberry with your other device first

Does any one know how to work the bluetooth on the pearl, im always getting errors and cant ever recieve any thing from any one...is there something im not seeing?
The Blackberry Pearl DOESNOT have wifi. The phone identifies network connection as "wireless" - this is confusing at first, as this is normally equated to wifi. Unfortunately in this case, the Pearl does not have wifi - it is a GPRS phone with EDGE to enable faster WAP/emailing. Excellent phone otherwise!
Can someone clarify, is there wifi on this phone? Feaftures listed does not include wifi
when i connect wifi how do i open up my internet browser to start browsing????
