Summary: I HAD THIS PHONE THE BLACKBERRY 8830 IN RED, AND BECAUSE I LOVED IT SO MUCH, I PURCHASED ANOTHER AS A GIFT FOR SOMEONE WHO LIVES IN ANOTHER COUNTRY. THE PHONE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE "UNLOCKED" AND IT WAS NOT! THE BATTERY INCLUDED WITH THE PHONE LOOKED AS THOUGH IT HAD GOTTEN WET BECAUSE IT WAS SLIGHTLY SWOLLEN. NOT TO MENTION THERE WERE NO CORDS TO CHARGE THE PHONE AS PICTURED IN THE PHOTOS POSTED ONLINE. THEY HAVE TRIED TO HAVE IT UNLOCKED AND HAVE BEEN UNSUCCESSFUL.
Summary: i ordered two phones from them the two phone came broken i sent them back i don't feel i should have to pay them to restock broken goods but they charge me anyway and only gave me back half of my money because the value of the broken phones that they sent me went down.i would not advise anyone to buy from them they are rude and don't have good people skills.i'm so sorry i spent my money on they useless stuff.
the whole experience sucked,and I would never by from again EVER!!!!!

Summary: I hated it....we bought the phone and found out,we could not do a dang thing with the phone,tried to unlock it,tried to get help from the company that carries the phone,and they said that this phone came with a $750 bill,and that if I wanted to pay that,that they would be more than happy to help me out with unlocking it...what? I just got the phone,it is not my bill? they said basically to bad,I bought the phone,so therefore I bought the bill too...
Advertised as unlocked, but locked to versizon and can not be unlocked

Summary: Amazon lists this phone with the unlocked phone. It is in fact locked. I contacted the seller who told to buy the unlock code and then maybe I'll be able to unlock. I bought the unlock code, but was unable to enter it. This phone will not work with ATT.
Summary: THIS PHONE WILL NOT WORK IN THE U.S. WITH GSM CARRIERS. I THOUGHT I COULD PULL SOME MAGIC AND MAKE IT WORK, BUT I WAS SADLY MISTAKEN. ALSO, THIS PHONE CAN'T BE TRULY UNLOCKED. IS DOES NOT HAVE STAND ALONE SOFTWARE FROM BLACKBERRY.
