Summary: Love Blackberry and Blackberry phones. This handset was great. But, this was their Nextel phone - which has since been 'Sunsetted' by Sprint. So, now this handset is no longer valid on any carrier.
Summary: I wanted a smartphone for Nextel iDen network and this fits the bill. It is an obsolete phone and wasn't going to pay full retail price to Nextel so a refurbished is a good compromise for an obsolete network as I am forced to use it.
Excerpt: I've had the phone for a couple of months now, and I LOVE it! Aside from the crappy stereo ear buds it comes with, the battery capacity is great, the keyboard is a huge improvement, the fact that its Bluetooth compatible is fantastic! There isn't a feature that I don't use on a regular basis! I LOVE my Blackberry Curve! The ONLY downside is the quality of the finishes of the keys and the fact that no protective case is/was available for it.
Excerpt: I have now had this phone for 5 months. I really like it. I changed from a Motorola Clutch to this phone and couldn't be happier at my decision. The battery seems to have a pretty long life for being a smart phone. I love having the ability to get notifications with new emails and to use facebook. I have had a few problems with getting the notifications for facebook, but after I reinstalled the app it was fine. My trackball occassionally sticks too.
Summary: It works for what I need it for, most of the time. In construction, it is necessary to dress it with an Otterbox. If I forget to perform a soft reset at least 3 times a week, I will get the "clock of death", which is not good, considering I NEED communication at all times on the job site. It may freeze for up to 10 minutes, which is not practical in dangerous situations. Alternatively, I can perform a hard reset, but that is an ordeal in itself.
Pros: smartphone, qwerty keyboard, blackberry, solid, great work phone, email, PTT
Summary: It is good price for something not easy to find. If you go to Nextel and buy a new one. They charge you with a two year contract for $99.00 plus taxes monthly...it will be more than $2400.00 and more if you have to buy the blackberry for $129.00 Only thing is it come without box only the blackberry and it charger... but anyway Will you use the carton box for talking and testing? You could compare...
Summary: I bought this phone as an upgrade from the Blackberry 7520 (OS 4.1). It is indeed a huge upgrade in most ways fathomable, so I'll start with the drawbacks of the 8350i (OS 5.0) versus the 7520. While the 7520 rarely hung up, and when it did so it was because I was actively using 3 or 4 applications, the 8350i gets hung up regularly if you multitask.
Summary: This is a good looking phone. Fairly attractive and very user friendly compared to some of the older models of blackberry. The internet is not horribly slow keeping in mind Nextel does not have a 3or4g network. There are a lot of free aps to choose from that people would use on a normal basis.
Summary: well cause my english is too poor, I'll write in spanish. sorry about this. Anteriormente ya habia comprado una blackberry 8350 i, me gusto el diseño, la compatibilidad para internet, las aplicaciones java, es un telefono de mucho mundo, escogi este modelo pro la funcion de PPT (push to talk) ya que tengo un plan de radio internacional con boost mobile, ademas de habar mucho por radio con otros boost y nextel, uso mucho el telefono, oigo muscia con su reproductor mp3 y...
