It works...

  • Summary: The only problem I've experienced with the phone is when the battery is running extremely low and needs to be charged the phone will disconnect from the "radio" (mobile carrier). Even after the battery charges you have to go online to figure out how to fix the problem. Until you reconnect to the "radio" you can't call any of your contacts or send text messages.

Blackberry 8530 - has some Gremlins...

  • Excerpt: I've had my Blackberry 8530 for about a year. I like the design, it has alot of applications. The biggest thing I wasn't happy about over my old phone was that it doesn't hold a charge as long even staying of the web didn't help the battery last longer. I can usually get a day to a day and a half of life without charging it and without internet use. But I suspect that it's that way for many smart phones.

So Far So Good Except Battery Life Is Awful

J In Orlando "Movie Buff", Amazon
22 January 2012
  • Summary: The Blackberry Feature is pretty good and I can't say enough about the Boost Mobile Service. I find Boost Mobile to be very competitive with the other carriers that charges you an arm and a leg just for the same service that I get for much lower cost with Boost Mobile. As for the phone itself it is great my only complaint is that the battery life is awful and the battery cover is very loose. Other than that I have to say that I am very satisfied.

It is ok

LLoyd Graham, Amazon

  • Summary: I like the phone, but can not get the apps to download. It took a lot to get through to boost customer service, but once I did tech support worked really hard to get the issue resolved. I think I was on the phone for close to an hour with them trying but just could not resolve the issue. So....good phone as long as you dont need to download any additional apps, otherwise, pick another phone.
