This is my first blackberry. I ordered this phone because I liked the fact that it was small and had a good design. I was also swayed by comments I had heard about how good Blackberries were. When I first got this phone out of the box however, I was disapointed by the overall feel of the unit.The upper screen section is well built & feels heavy whereas the lower section is much lighter & feels cheap and nasty. This gives the phone an imbalanced feel in your hand even with the battery installed. The features generally are well laid out & connecting the phone to my e-mail accounts was very easy. The truetype keyboard is also very easy & quick to get the hang of. This phone is not all good however! After about 2 days of use & after being left on standby overnight I went to pick up the phone only to find that it was RED HOT!. Since then the problem has not reoccured but the battery life has been seriously impaired (lasting less than 48hours on standby). There are also some other reliability issues like having to hard reset the phone(by removing the battery) at regular intervals due to the software locking up. I am aware that this may just be a fault with this particular phone but my confidence in it has taken a major hit (I need reliability over any other feature). I will be returning this one to my service provider and moving back to the always reliable motorola!.
ravi, 14 Nov 2008will this phone work in indiaYes it is a world phone and will work in India. Go to www.rogers.com/roaming for the roaming charges of using your phone in India unless you get it unlocked and use a SIM card from there but your number will not be the same that way.
stylish and goodlooking. exactly what I look for in a man. great communications device and the camera is wicked.
Theonick, 10 Nov 2008i'm sorry but you must be one of the stupidest person ever! now sit in a corner and reflect! haha stupidest isn't even a word what does that make u?
the phone is all around a good idea however the material used to construct the main body looks and feels cheap.
I am a blackberry user and i work for a business telecommunications company. I have held one of these phones and they have to be the most akward blackberrys available if your used to the old type youll find the keys to just be far to big to the point it feals like your useing your childs toy phone also the classic roller ball is tucked into the handset making it a pain in the *** to use! And if its the case you juat want small blackberry this phone is just ever so slightly smaller and to be honest thicker than the pearl! If you want one by all means get one but i'll be sticking with my pearl cant beat them!
Anonymous, 17 Nov 2008this does look as classy as the rest of the blackberries.this does not look as stylish as the rest of the blaxkberry models. This lokks like a toy.
too bad it doesn't have GPS, or i wouldn't loved this phone, cus it looks and sounds cool and i love how its unique by being a flip- smart cus im tired of the whole "Hey look, im carrying my laptop in my pocket" era.
