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.
Summary: Well i got it in three days which was good but it was listed as new and when i went to activate the phone the company charged me a 10 dollar reactivation fee,i mean it was only 10 dollars but it said it was a new phone should have specified that it was used not new.
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.
Awesome product! Just make sure to check everything before you buy
