I Bought the 8220 flip but the provider is telling me the number i have from the same provider will not work on it for blacberry service.Everything else works though.the chip and phone are ok.Can a phone number make a diference ?
I guess everyone has an opinion. This phone is certainly not the most sophisticated out there. But for me, I love the flips(no locking or unlocking keypads), it's small (which I like) and I'm not a phone freak, yet this has everything I need and then some.
An Excellent phone!!!!!
Hohoho, that's verry funny that Blackberry made flip phone, Look like perfect PIECE OF CRAP. Good job BlackBerry Corp. keep it up.
It's like a child with a new toy, better yet a baby and a candy that is hard to seperate. Have you ever tried taking candy from a child? If so you will eventually have to return it.

2. get a bold and you would regret saying anything about the processor being sluggish.
3. if you want a qwerty keyboard what the h*** are you doing looking at a pearl?
4. the interface is one of the hottest ive seen in these class of phones
5. im pretty sure blackberries are smarter than any smartphone your thinking of
here is the thing i never was a fan of blackberry phones and this phone definitely dragged my thoughts of them to the 21st century.
no longer will i think of all blackberrys as utter crap.....now i will think of them as the biggest piece of expensive faeces in existence. BBs have always been way too over priced in comparison to their usefulness and this phone is no exception.
Speaking from a purely objective view point i don't think BBs should b regarded as smart phones,only more like a lil less dumb phone.
Enough banter about my hatred for all things BB
First issue if someone is running u down to kill u and this phone is off and u need to turn it on to call the police for help.....jus chuck it at ur attackers it will have alot more use then.
The phone takes forever to boot like it took me a gud 5 mins between restarts
The interface is ugly........not in comparison to normal phones but when u look at the class of phones this claims to be in u will understand my reasoning.
Processor is sluggish,ball thingy feels like something taken out of a roll on bottle,menus are plain and make me feel like i want to throw up........but most importantly the key board......who at BB thought it was a gud idea to throw 2 letters on each key? This is not innovative its just retarded..........when i ask for a qwerty keyboard it means i want my keys to spell qwerty individually. All in all though this is not really worth a buy not to me atleast but im sure u BB fanboys will flock to it no matter what
i dont understand this price group
is the mobile 310 eur or does each packed money symbol represents 310 eur
this is more or less a general statement... I amin the pusuit of looking for a phone that can facilitate me while at school eg internet etc...what would anyone prescribe??? email@example.com
