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.
Summary: I got the phone in the mail one day early! That was nice, The phone looked brand new in the box. I only had the phone for 20 minutes and the phone froze on me 5 times!!!! This is still happening!!! Also there are people that I block on my phone and it will not allow me to do that on this phone! Other than that the phone is fine!
Excerpt: I got my first Blackberry in April 2008; I'm on the third one already. It gets hung up on the Internet and is very frustrating to use. On the other hand, I love the convenience of having email and being able to use the calendar. So, it's not all bad!
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.
Summary: Still using this phone and it is still fully operational. I only use it now to make and receive calls. In the earlies it use to freeze for some strange reason and the battery would run down. Now it takes 2 days before it dies. It takes long to boot up whenever the battery is pulled like with all other blackberry.
Summary: Recived on time and in NEW condition. My issues are that it doesn't have BB ap world nor 3G nor wifi; and you can't have a whole picture as your background it only changes the bottom half of the wall paper. Also the bluetooth doesn't work at all it will connect to other devices but you can't send or recive pictures or songs. I think for $100 there shouldn't have been this many issues.
Excerpt: Its not very pretty. or fancy. its basic, but i's got the full keyboard and Its good for texting. I dont use any of the add ons either, but its got internet and gps and all that good stuff. I wish I would have got it in red though.
