Summary: Despite being refered to as unblocked, my network provider cant access internet on this verizon phone. Kindly find a way to work around that cos many people assume an unblocked phone can be used without limitations in accesibility.
Summary: The phones are great. But the battery life is poor whether in use or not in use(less than 60 hours to be precise). In addition the phones were locked and had to get activated before they could start working.
Excerpt: I purchased the Blackberry Tour phone a few months ago and I would recommend this phone to other people. Overrall, the phone operates well. I can access the Internet, use my Sprint navigation, take pictures or record a video in a flash. It handles well and provides me with clear calling and no dropped calls. The only problem that I do have is the tiny keyboard and the limited battery life.
Excerpt: I was very excited when I got my blackberry, but when I started to use it, I was disappointing. I wanted the blackberry because of it's internet and e-mail. the e-mail part is good but the internet is slow and the screen is to small.
Excerpt: When I first purchased my Blackberry Tour, excited was an understatement since this was not only my first Blackberry, but also my first smartphone! The LG flip phone I had before was on its last leg and it was time for me to enter the world of BB! Well, the world of Blackberry isn't as sweet as I thought it was going to be.
Excerpt: I got my first smartphone, the Blackberry Tour, from work a few months ago. I had never had or even used a smartphone before and so was a bit overwhelmed at first, but will say that the Blackberry help desk customer service rep was extremely helpful and patient in teaching me the basics. This is my impression of the Blackberry: it is great for checking emails and text messages, but as a cell phone, it leaves much to be desired.
Excerpt: It's a smart phone. But it's not a toy. This should only be for people that want to get business done on the go. If you want to be able to read emails and be able to respond to them when you are mobilized and not at your desk, this is great. However, if you are looking for some fancy toy to amuse you, this is not it. It's multimedia capability is lacking. It shouldn't be your primary tool to watch videos and listen to movies. Oh also, the web browsing is horrendous.
Summary: This is my second Blackberry 9630 purchased from Amazon within the past 60 days. The first one ordered from a vendor in California, used less than one month. Customer service & phone was outstanding. Phone was like new. I accidentally spilled cola on it causing me to lose my sim card & the phone. Needless to say, I was sick!! Ordered another one from another vendor. It was an "open box" product. The phone kept rebooting itself, now its dead.
Summary: First of all no one in Verizon and AT&T store believed that it will work. The phone has logo Verizon, but also has a SIM-card slot. After I asked the AT&T employee to try to put SIM-card into the phone, later start working. However it didn't have any data, so there is no Internet.
