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: 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...
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.
Excerpt: OK 1st if you get the service books for blackberry on the "crackberry" site you can get everything to work except the picture messaging; If your a teenage girl I'm sure you'll really miss this feature! But if you are a adult and have some sense and know how to do a google search for video tutorials they exist and they work! Also FYI NexTel and Sprint do work over each others towers that was a load of poo to say other wise.
