Summary: do not purchase if you live in USA, this phone does not work in the civilized world.....for the life of me, I do not know why someone would sell a cellphone IN THE USA THAT DOES NOT WORK IN THE USA?
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.
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...
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.
Summary: I live in MX and bought 2, they are not unlocked and wont work on the telcel network save your cash , DONT BUY THIS PHONE, unless you are going to use it on the Verizon network in the states, I also tried the black berry fourm to unlock them with no luck , just spending 9 $ more each, a waste of time and cash.
Summary: I bougth this phone because I lived in the border and I nedd a mexican phone when I visited Mexico to keep in touch with my family.But, The word ( Unlocked ) it is not true. I tried with two chips from differents companys from Mexico and the phone did not recognize the chips.. Thats means that it is not UNlocked.. About the rest the phone it is as described with some minor scratches and marks.. No problem about that..
Summary: It is an old phone. It doesn't support most modern apps and even Sprint has a tough time programming it. It took us 2 hours at a Sprint store to get it activated. It is a basic functioning phone but definately not a joy to have.
