Summary: Still use it,came in locked,had to get a code to unlock it.It loses service and I have to keep doing a battery pull each time to reset it.Still using it but I would still recommend it as a good product.
Summary: Great product. It was a bit difficult to setup to work as a gsm of another cell phone company. However, once it was set up it worked great and it was a reasonable price too. Especially for a blackberry, which usually goes for hundreds of dollars unlocked.
BlackBerry 8830 is a real work horse, low cost, power house smartphone.

Summary: The BlackBerry 8830 was easy to get up and running with one of my old 8330 batteries. This phone is straight forward, and functions with lots of great apps. Powerful with large memory for a older unit. Low cost smart phone, that works.
Good company to work with but these phones are locked

Summary: 1 out of 3 of the phones needed repair of the ball. It did not work. The company offered repair, refund or replacement. Thy were very concerned and we worked out a settlement. The phones are locked and I did not know this. So be prepared to pay extra to unlock these phones
