This is a very good phone for the non iPhone / Android business crowd.

Summary: The BlackBerry 8830 World Phone is a legacy device. The operating system cannot be updated to anything modern. It is no longer supported officially - though there are many ways to get assistance if you run into problems. If you are looking for an Android / iPhone alternative - Stop. Turn around and go somewhere else.
Summary: I bought this phone for my 12 yr old grandson. I wanted a phone without a camera and no internet. This phone was perfect! It has the capability to turn off the internet access. So if you are looking for a phone you can set parental controlls on - this is it. It's a terrific looking phone and you can set it to do just what you want. Compared to other non-camera phones, they do not compare. I looked at quite a few before I selected this on.
Summary: A freind asked to purchase this smartphone,he saw the price and wanted it ASAP and when he received it he was amazed how easily it worked with the wifi since where he works as a security guard he has wifi free there.
Excerpt: This phone has all of the functions that one would need, to get email, view documents, browse the web. This phone has more functions than I need, but works great for I do use it for ! Would highly recommend this phone !
Excerpt: Overall, I really do like my blackberry. When the time comes, I will definitely be upgrading to the newer model. My only complaint with this actual phone is the roller ball gets stuck a lot. I just have to fiddle with it and play with it and it will eventually fix itself. It's just a pain when you need to do something on your phone and the ball is sticking. I know this was a pretty big problem because the newer version don't use the balls anymore.
