Summary: i had a blackberry before this one i started looking for another type phone because i wasnt happy with it but i came across this one got and wow i have changed my mind on how i felt about blackberry phones
Excerpt: I purchased my Blackberry Pearl in October. It is a great little phone and has many capabilities that I love (internet browsing, multiple email account setup, etc). One thing that I have had major problems with on this phone is that the screen keeps going completely white for hours at a time and I am not able to see the screen, but the phone is still on.
Is a great email, text messaging and navigation machine!

Excerpt: I love that I can set up to 11 emai accounts. I currently have my work, yahoo and hotmail email accounts set up as regular icons. Since blackberry works with the pust technology, you only have to set up your email once and then you will get notified every time you have a new email, just like the text messaging system. Also is good with web browsing and the keyboard allows me to type very fast. It's a very stable system, it hardly ever crashes or freezes up.
Excerpt: I have a Blackberry 8800 series and I just love it. Takes good pictures and the speaker phone is nice and loud. Battery life is pretty good also, unless you have the bluetooth on, when using the bluetooth the battery wears out fast.
Great for e-mail: ease of typing better than I-phone!

Excerpt: I carry three phones. An i-phone for personal use, a blackberry for work e-mail and a flip phone to talk on. I thing the blackberry is perfect for work e-mail but I don't like to use it as a phone. If I could I would have the phone turned off as such I don't even know the phone number so I can't speak to how the features work. But for e-mail I love the QWERTY keyboard and find it far easier to use for typing messages than my I-phone.
Excerpt: The phone is great for people on the go. The email capability is wonderful. The mixture seems right. A strong signal is available in areas where I had problems with my old cell phone. My only beef with the product is the key size. For a guy with short finger nails, I have to spend time typing the messages.
Excerpt: I really do like the Blackberry. However I have the version that does not have a camera phone. My cell phone provider does not offer a camera on their Blackberry products. Other than that I really love the phone. Very upscale and sleek. Reviewer is an employee or otherwise affiliated with the brand.
