Summary: I lost a Blackberry and replaced it with an updated model. I did go the Verizon (before ordering it through Amazon) who sold me a touch screen phone along with a "free" tablet which was not the easiest phone to operate AND would not accept my returning the tablet without a $175 return fee.and charging me a $10+ monthly fee to have it sit in my office.
Summary: I had planned to use this phone as my iPhone 5 was on the fritz. Just needed a holdover until I got something more to my liking. I had remembered really liking the old Bold, so I bought this. It was a little more beat up I think, than the seller had let on. I know this is subjective, but there was painting and chips on the keys, the battery was a little corroded. The phone DID work however.
Excerpt: I have this phone for work and my firm pays for it which is nice. I had a much older version of the Blackberry until I got this new one a few months ago. WHen I was setting it up I was a little confused about all of the different setps I had to take in order to get everything lined up just so. I guess i am not as smart as my phone because there are days when I still don't get a lot of what is going on on my smart phone.
Excerpt: So I finally got around to buying my first ever smartphone just over a month ago and it was the BlackBerry Bold 9650 from Sprint, and unfortunately it fell so short of my expectations that I ended up sending it back to Sprint within my initial 30-day no risk trial period for a refund.First the good:The phone looks sharp, feels great in the hand, has excellent screen resolution and takes amazing photos and videos.
Cons: Build quality (specifically the optical track pad commonly being askew)., Call quality surprisingly disappointing compared to cheaper phones., Performance of GPS (location-based apps)., Browser., Fewer free apps to choose from in the marketplace.
Excerpt: Modelo muy manejable, es muy cómodo escribir mensajes con wifi y 3G, incorpora también el famoso sistema de correo de Blackberry, también tiene GPS, cámara, y además te puedes bajar apps aunque no tiene tantas como la App Store.
