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.

Texting is horrible.

I had this phone 28 days and returned it on the 29th day in time for a refund. I am computer savy, I am cell phone savy and can always figure them out in a day. This one stumped me.
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.
