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: 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 So, now this handset is no longer valid on any carrier.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.
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...
Excerpt: First let me start by saying Nextel is a horrible network if you're not a construction worker lol. I'll basically explain my experiences with this device via pros and cons. PROS: -Nice size, feels good in your hand (unless you put a case on it) -Display is by far better than any other nextel device -Internet on this device is significantly faster than any other nextel device I've used -Camera is decent -Multitask feature; I didn't think it would have it since it was...
Summary: This is a very good blackberry, but it has its limitations when you use it for boost mobile. Its not very user-friendly, but you get used to it. Battery life is a +. On normal operation it lasts all day.camera, chirp and sound quality are excellent. Probably the best thing about blackberrys are the third-party apps that can be installed.
