Not worth the money !

  • Excerpt: I purchased this phone prior to its release, based on the ads. I paid $500.00 for this device from Sprint. I loved the look, it is sleek and modern but that is where it ends. The phone doesn't have a camera and no sound. You have to purchase additional software in order to hear and see actual feed from websites. Based on the price and the reputation of RIM/Blackberry, I expected more especially being that this device debuted about the time as the I-Phone.

This phone was about as easy to use as a rocket ship

  • Excerpt: I hated this phone.  I had to get it for work and I went from an I-Phone, which I personally think is amazing, to this blackberry.  It was difficult to understand, especially because set up is so weird.  You have to put icons on the screen, but half of the things you need are missing, and you can't figure out which icon you need to be able to get them. And that is not even the half of it.  Texting is horrible.

Blackberry 8830 World Edition

  • Excerpt: The Blackberry 8830 World Edition was a phone that was provided to me by my employer. As a work issued phone it does the job as I am able to have full access to my work email box and am able to access the internet as well as our corporate intranet. This is not a phone I would purchase for personal use for reasons such as I'm not a fan of the keyboard, there is no camera built in, the phone itself is a bit large and the voice activated dialing button is located on the...

  • Summary: It is very very unfortunate that your product that I purchased from you did not meet up to the expectation upon which i purchased it from your company. You said the Blackberry is unlocked BUT it is LOCKED.A s it is now,I can not use it with Simple Network or other Networks because it is saying that the phone cannot accept any Network except Verison.

  • Summary: I bought this product to replace my Blackberry 8330. Pros: full keyboard, email, txt, basic web browsing, easy SD card access, clear headset speaker, Cons: no 3.5 headphone jack, low speakerphone, no side button for address book, big/square looking It's a decent phone for basic use, older options. I would recommend a newer model Blackberry.

  • Summary: I bought this blackberry expecting it to be easy to operate and easy to learn. The phone part for receiving calls and sending calls works fine. When I tried to set up the internet and access my email i learned that it was a corporate phone and had security restrictions. I since contacted Verizon and Also the black berry company and after 8 hours of being on the phone and several tries to clear the blocks i have learned it is still not working.

  • Summary: well if you are looking to travel to a different country make sure u get a blackberry world edition 8830 IR... the IR is the most important part.. i bought the 8830 to us in iraq while i was deployed and i bought it thinking it was going to work out here considering the name "World Edition" but it didn't work at all.. so its just a $90 paper weight in my room.. playing Brick Breaker.
