Outdated, not worth the $29 a month data plan that is required.
6 May 2011
Summary: A fine phone, but outdated. We activated this phone with verizon (yes it does require the $29 a month data plan) worked fine, but the web browser was very out of date. The facebook app wont work on this phone, the OS is too old, it isn't supported. I wouldn't recomend this phone.
Summary: I had to buy another Blackberry from eBay because this particular model completely shut down after about a week. Probably just a fluke, but Blackberry Tech and Sprint Tech people could do nothing but make it a paperweight.
Summary: This blackberry is the very old version. It doesn't have the roller or mouse button to scroll anywhere. It was a little hard to get use to. It is also kind of big. It wasn't terrible but I could have done without it. I bought the phone because I felt that cell phones are not made the way they use to but I will go back to the newer versions.
Summary: It's weird to get used to if you have already owned a higher model blackberry. I bought this as a backup phone. And it's hard to get used to. It is solid but slow. If you like slim phones, or want a camera phone please do not buy this model. Makes a good back up phone though!
Summary: You have to have sprint data package and phone is hard to use not my favorite phone. It was a good phone of its time but now i would go with something a little newer. Good looking Smart Phone just ease of use is poor and I'm not fan of Sprint and will do anything not to get back on their poor network.
Summary: The phone was not what I expected. First, it was listed as a touchscreen, which it is not. Beyond that, It will only randomly let me send a text message, even when in a good service area. The phone randomly shuts off and will not stay charged. Very unhappy!
Summary: I have bought two of these phones and the internet browsers did not work. The first time the Sprint technician could not believe he could not fix it and credited my account the $35 dollars that I paid even though I bought it off Ebay. It seemed to be an isolated problem so I purchased another and had the same problem. I guess you get what you pay for as they were both around forty bucks but they should still work.
Summary: phone is extremely confusing! there is no easy way to do anything except answer a call. I can't go on any websites that I need to, only certain ones?! this is my first blackberry and I'm glad I purchased one online instead of buying one from sprint and spending 3 times the money. I don't think I will be purchasing a new one.
