Summary: Purchased it because my dad's phone stopped working and we needed another smart phone for him. It arrived fast and in good condition with a charger. Works great. No problems adding it to my network.
This is a very good phone for the non iPhone / Android business crowd.

Summary: The BlackBerry 8830 World Phone is a legacy device. The operating system cannot be updated to anything modern. It is no longer supported officially - though there are many ways to get assistance if you run into problems. If you are looking for an Android / iPhone alternative - Stop.
