Summary: The phone works "ok," for the most part. On more than one occasion, it's gone into "SOS" or "SMS" mode, and calls, voicemails, or texts, aren't received right away. It usually happens when I'm in a service "dead zone." As soon as I'm not in the "dead zone," I receive all the messages and texts that were missed. It's kind of annoying. Oh well.
Summary: I have been a BB user for at least 5 years and have often owned the latest models mostly for business use. I purchased this one as a personal BB. Unfortunately, automatically I could tell it was not of the same quality as the others. It was much lighter and just felt flimsier. It also took a while to figure out how to download BB messenger which came pre-loaded in my past BBs.
Excerpt: I bought this phone from t-mobile over 4 years ago and 2 years ago I stopped using it. Packed it away in a musty cellar, moved halfway across the country with it in a random box of junk, and then kept it in another even mustier cellar. Today, I thought I'd dig it out for giggles and see if it still worked.
