great phone, best keyboard layout in my opinion with two letters on each key, good for people with large fingers. no butt dialing because its flip, only one fatal flaw is that almost all 8220's start to have sim card errors after about a year and application errors, two of my friends have the same phone and both started to bugg out after about a year. mine just got the fatal app error 805 or whatever and now all my notes and texts and saved stuff are all toast, luckily blackberry's have a very good backup program (blackberry desktop)
Anonymous, 29 Dec 2010some one wants to sell me one shud i buy itok listen up...if you use the bluetooth with your car...it will stop working...I had mine for 3 yrs and everything stopped working by itself...the key pad stinks and is not good @ navigating around the menu's. the only good thing is its small!

I still struggle with the keyboard--a "modified' qwerty that's hard to use. Biggest problem is that it regularly locks up. I added the QuickPull app, which presumably restarts the phone and kills the lock-ups, but it hasn't. I thought it was the perfect phone for me. Not so.
Anonymous, 17 Oct 2010l l had nothing but problems with this phone blackberry should have done a recall on this piea... moreThis is my second flip...I had to request a replacement twice...Everytime I tried to make a call it was either call failed or emergency calls only.I was a dam fool and bought another one 7 days ago, and it's the same problem...I know they know that the phone should have been recalled.
mia, 13 Dec 2010where i can found the appworld in this phone?i think , you must download , the app at blackberyy
KRishna, 10 Dec 2010Does this phone have 3G capability?Nope. This phone does not have 3G function.
This was the worst investment i have ever made. Within the 1st 2 month of owning this phone the blue-tooth decided not to work anymore then more recently the phone took it upon itself to erase all my files from my memory card. To add to those the soft key buttons on the right and left side of the phone responds when they want and some of the keys on the keypad only respond sometime when i apply extreme pressure.
This is my first blackberry and although it was my first and worst experience with the brand i think the brand is a very unique and convenient and at present i am looking for a replacement with the bb brand; does anyone have any suggestions.
O to sum it all up don't buy this phone.
