Summary: 1) The battery that came with the phone was not an original Blackberry battery. 2) The said battery is not charging with the charger provided. 3) Speaking of the charger, it has rust spots on it as if though it was exposed to some sort of weathering. This phone was intended as a gift for Christmas. For the reasons listed above I was unable to give it as a gift. I am disappointed with this product.
Summary: At the time being, these phones average $40. Raise they have a $15 data charge in order to use it, but it's functions are out dated. Pay a little more for a better BlackBerry. Save your self the stress.
Summary: Please don't buy any product from AMAZON.. "THEY ARE CHEATERS". I bought this phone in AUG'2010 and the phone stopped working after 45 days.. black screen and red ligth flashing when I plug in the power. I called amazon customer service and they told me to contact Blackberry. I called Blackberry and the technical support said, since this product was sold by 3rd Party (Amazon) in this case, they cannot assist with any technical support. I'm lost.
Summary: This item was sold to me without a manual, and worst of all it is not working, I bought it as a present for a friend, you can imagine what I feel when it returned to me with the complain that it it not working and they have charged it for days and it does not stay up.
