  • Summary: Phone was bought to be used out of the country on business trips. It was supposed to be unlocked. It was not. Had to take to store and pay to unlock. Very disappointing.

  • Summary: The phone was advertised as unlocked; unfortunately it was not. Incredibly, ATT wanted verification proof from the previous owner to unlock the phone yet the phone was brand new from the factory. The IME code ATT (overseas customer rep) eventually provided to the Wal-Mart associate did not unlock the phone. At that point ATT said there was nothing more they could do. I then returned the phone.

Worst Phone I've ever had

KendraEllsworth, Viewpoints

  • Excerpt: Things that have gone wrong with this phone. Over all I would never tell anyone to get this phone, I got it since my husband had one. His broke so he got a "normal" phone. I'm really glad I don't have to use it for work since just checking my personal e-mail is a pain in the butt it only notifies me of new messages every once in a while. Don't buy this phone.

BlackBerry Curve 8900

C.Salmoni, Rate it all!

  • Summary: We purchased the phone and plan through T-Mobile, within the time period of the activiation fee waiver (special offer through Amazon). Therefore, I was surprised to see a $70 fee for activation from T-Mobile on my first bill. Called T-Mobile, and they said to call Amazon. We called Amazon, and guess what, yeah, the service rep told us it was T-Mobile's problem. Got on a three way call.

BlackBerry Curve 8900

  • Summary: Do not buy your cell phone through Amazon. It is not worth the wasted time and aggravation. Two years ago I purchased a T-Mobile Blackberry through Amazon. Everything went smoothly and I am still using that phone. Since my 2-year contract is up this month I decided to purchase the 8900. I placed an order and almost immediately received an e-mail stating that T-Mobile had declined my purchase.

"5 replacements, hardware and software problems."

djoseph74, CNET
14 September 2009
  • Pros: It has a decent keyboard.
  • Cons: I am on my 5th replacement in 5 months. The last one came dead. This phone doesn't last. T-Mobile doesn't care either, they'll continue to send you replacement after replacement.
