Excerpt: The blackberry curve 8530 is a great smartphone for those who are new to the scene! It has wifi capabiltiies,mp3 player, a 2.0 mega pixel camera, video recorder, blackberry apps, maps, email, instant messaging and blackberry messenger and much much much more. Now lets get to the specifics! Voice quality is great you have a clear background and you can adjust in options if you want a treble boost or bass boost for the call quality.
Excerpt: I'm sold on the Blackberry 8530 smart phone. I have had other smart phones before, like the Palm, but I found it to be clunky and offer more features than I needed. I wanted a smart phone to help me with scheduling and get me on the internet. I wish the scheduling calendar gave you options to throw some color in to distinguish certain items that are scheduled. The contacts feature lets you add SO much information. It's wonderful.
Excerpt: I hate my blackberry curve! It takes forever to load when turning on. My husband and I have the same phone and it constantly freezes up on us when we try to access one of the apps we have. The phone also has a mind of its own where it changes ring tones and alarm tones on its own! NOt to mention that after a year, my battery has completely died and am getting a hard time about replacing it from my cell phone carrier.
