Cathrynn, 28 Oct 2013Please please can someone tell me where I can purchase this lovely phone from? I am desperate... moreI've seen them for sale on ebay. These are CDMA phones and will not work on GSM band. So depending on where you live this phone may not work.

harveywaz, 31 Jan 2013Thank goodness my two year contract with Sprint and this Blackberry Style "Flip" pho... moreActually, its not that slow, perhaps your carrier does not support EVDO? Because I'm using it, and the call quality is comparable to iphone 4g
AnonD-167398, 21 Jul 2013i have brother which use this phone , when i saw him use that he always turn off when he didnt... moreNo, its not slow, well maybe a little slow but perhaps your brother need to change the trackpad? Disable sdcard compression to speed up? or basically clean the error report from Alt+LGLG
A good phone I will rate 4.5 out of 5.
I got this phone last month around US$100 new, without contract, no Docs to go though, even trial one.
Very good picture quality, downside is unable to upgrade to OS7 so Resource monitor is out of question, so just remember to bring a power bank wherever you go.
Good connection, even now I'm using the phone as modem to my PC
The keyboard is too flat for my liking and the phone is too bulky
Overall this is a very good phone for the price, which is why I will recommend this phone

Please let me know, if this work with Keerala (India) bsnl cdma connection?
Does this cool little phone work in Aus? Can you take them off the Sprint Network and put a proper/normal sim into them?
This is the second best phone I've ever owned. The main issue with it is the battery.
Occasionally the phone will overheat and basically commit suicide in record speed. I have to charge my phone several times daily if I've used it anywhere near frequently and never leave home without making sure it has been recently charged. It's actually flashing that it's about to die as it's sitting next to me right now, even though I charged it right before I went to bed 9 hours ago. I've only opened it twice since waking up, but because I received a text during the night, the battery has drained.
If this problem was fixed, I'd have nothing bad to say at all about this phone.
I love BlackBerry, personally. This was the first BB I've ever had. I loved the fact that it was a flip phone, cause with previous phones from other makers, I've always accidentally pressed other buttons while I was holding it or it was in my purse. So the fact that it's a flip phone really was the reason I originally got this phone. Here in America, it was originally $300, but I bought it off of ebay for $150 in 2011, I believe. I've had it for a year and a half, and came to love it. App World is easy to use and has quite a few free downloads. It's not a wide phone so anyone with smaller hands, it will probably fit perfectly in their hands. I have fatter fingers and I didn't have any problem typing on the keyboard...each key has slightly rounded edges, so even though they are close together, you're not pressing other buttons unless you're super heavy-handed. I have it through Boost Mobile, which is Sprints' Prepaid plan, and I've never once had a dropped call or any problems like that. The internet can lag sometimes, but it's great for quick look-ups if you're out and you need the phone number to a specific place or something like that. It does come with a GPS, and like previously stated, it can wear the battery down kind of quickly, so I would have a charger near by, just in case. However, when you go to close out the GPS, you have to make sure you click "EXIT", otherwise it will continue running in the background, using up more of your battery. It's a really sturdy phone. I've had it for almost 2 years now and I just now have to replace it because I accidentally fell on the charger when it was plugged in and caused the charging port to become loose, so that's my own fault. But if I can find another one within my price range, I'd definitely get another one, no question about it!
If I have this phone imported, Would it work in South Africa? I really like it!
