Its a great phone, user friendly and has strong signal, one of the best phone i ever had, highly recommended, trust me i've had this phone for a long time and it never gave me any problems at all!!!
Great phone, meets my expectations, I have owned it for 18 months. CPU is a bit underpowered for the 4.6 OS, and the early versions of this OS were slow. The phone is fast enough for moderate use if you update to at least OS 188.8.131.528 and have reasonable expectations of the phone. Makes a great nav system when paired with a Bluetooth GPS and Garmin Mobile.
Pros: flip form factor, UMA calling over Wi-Fi, audio and video playback, wide variety of 3rd party apps available through App World, standard BB features.
Cons: underpowered CPU, early OS versions were slow.
Bottom line: buy it for the form factor and features, not for performance. Wait for the 95xx clamshell if you want a BB flip with snappy response.
hw is dis fone for $100(rs. 5000) ?
considering all the cons.
i am in love with it , but worried with restarting problem and lagging problem
This flip is a FLOP phone. The device cant run longer than 4 months. This is a circuit defect which is prevails in all the handset. The problems with this phone is that it goes on an indefinite reboot n boots only for a min longer. This cycle repeats till the battery is dried up. A strict No-No for a good looking short-lived smarty!
I enjoy the phone and love the ability to play Pandora in my car. However, I have problems with Pandora disconnecting especially while driving and trying to stay hands free when Pandora requires to click back a couple of times to retry and turn off again. I hope this can be fixed. Great sound through speakerphone and through headphones provided. I'm thinking about getting a NOKIA 5230 but it does not have Pandora or Slacker.
i really like this phone. i haven't seen this website before, i actually picked min up from gsmallover.com, but i think for my next phone i'll try this one out. i really like buying my phones online because then i don't have to pay full price or renew my contract. anways, this is a great phone, and these prices look really great. i only wish the phone had gps on it, but i guess i'll just have to invest in a garmin ;)
dee, 19 Apr 2010how can i fix an error, 545I can't remember exactly but I think that's a Java app error and you either have to delete the app you are tryin gto use or reload your back up file...
Or if it's a white screen with 3 symbols and an error code, then you need to reload the entire OS. Check crackberry.com for more details.
how the hack do I change my (sms) massege alert torns on the pearl flip 8220??? please help...
the sister of thid device is 8210 by Verizon but i think 8210 has no wifi but GPS
You need to activate the Bluetooth service, pair the BB with the other device, and after you paired it, before sending a file from the other device select from the file manager menu: "Receive file via bluetooth" then send the file(s) from the other device.
all i gotta say is when u charge the phone all night,the battery life shortens,try waiting until its actually dead to charge it. When mine would die,i charged the phone for an hour and a half and it lasted me 3 days. The phone life only lasts as long as the user treats it right..i had this phone since it came out and it recently just crapped out on me.
max, 26 Mar 2010Hey guys...its bluetooth not working for data transfer can any one tell me how can it works?ca... moreBluetooth chip fails just on 12 months. You will not be able to enable Bluetooth from handset. needs repair but basically cost of a new phone if out of warranty as it is one single PC board inside. Other software issues include clock not displaying date correctly on external screen in Digital Mode. Drops digits off date. Not a display problem but a software problem. Latest software is May 09 so no fix for it. Keypad locks randomly too. Another software problem. Cannot play video music unless flip is closed so useless as an in car music player unless playing MP3s then can close flip and music keeps playing.
