Summary: I got this for by boyfriend as a gift. He already had a T-Mobile sim card from a flip phone, but hated texting on it. First, his address did not open up in the Blackberry. Then we tried to open wi-fi and there is none on this phone unless you pay by the minute to T-mobile. Since this phone was advertised as a unlocked phone, and the person purchasing it would be using an already existing sim card, THAT GPS THAT NEEDS WI-FI WOULD NOT BE LISTED AS A FEATURE.
Excerpt: I only use it for making calls and texting. Blackberry has its own technology and in Uruguay connection is more expensive and does not have free calls to certain family members or reduced rates with friends. In Uruguay other phones permit these applications. I made a mistake buying Blackberry, although I recognize the phone is great for addresses, agenda, and texting.
Pros: Attractive Design, Brilliant Display, QWERTY Keypad, Was Bought For Us In Urug
Cons: Connection Is More Expens, Since Bberry Packet Is Mo
Summary: This unit looked like the real deal - and who knows, maybe it was. But it had trackball problems within 3 months - nothing like my first "genuine" unit where those issues didn't arise until 3+ years. Other than that, it was fine.
