Pros: It has "docking station" charging from the rear, supporting the commercial phone dock that is so critical.
Cons: It is extremely slow, often sitting for 10 seconds after hitting CANCEL. The hour glass is frequent and annoying. The touch pad is slow, and often selects THE NEXT selection from the one that I would like. The roller ball was far better in the 9000.
Summary: Buy this item from Amazon store, the phone works well, very well in this regard, but at checkout I chose also attach accessories to the phone, they said all packed together, these elements were: a set of 3 protective film the screen, a car charger game and finally a black rubber protective cover. These elements were unopcional of 25 dollars, I pay with my credit card, now the order came without those elements, whether lost or not what happened, but I cheated!
Summary: Okay I spent my well-earned gift card my boss blessed me with on this phone...I am disappointed because I purchased this item and just received the blackberry. Apparently this blackberry was not the Blackberry I was expecting as I thought I purchased one with "3MP Camera" and...the one I got does NOT have a CAMERA! I am not a happy person right now,I email OEM shop hoping this was an error..
Pros: I just got my Verizon Bold to replace my Palm Treo. It certainly has more complexity and options, and seems like a nice unit with many applications that could be helpful.
Cons: It was sold it to me with IT policy embedded which disabled synch. Though BB helped the same problem returned with address book only able to synch by "wireless," and "help" menu's solution does not work.
Cons: Everyone wants their phones to be slimmer, but the downside is the keyboards are now almost too small to be functional. I have small hands, but I have to use my fingernails to type on the Bold, the buttons are so small now.
