Excerpt: Decent phone like my subject says but its a little expensive for what it is.not many great apps like with the iphone. internet service is a little slow.easy to use but thats cause there isnt much to do.nice full keyboard but with my big fingers its a little hard to use.didnt drop service at all and there are a few games worth while on it.i'd say if you cant get an iphone for some reason it could be worth it to get a blackberry curve 8900.
Excerpt: I have checked into blackberrys, Unless you are working a job that requires one and pays for, it seems rather expensive. I looked blackberry before, really would have like one all the bells and whisles, but the monthly fees were high. If someone knows off the best deals on blackberry carriers please let me know Helen
Excerpt: I love this phone for checking email but have had lots of technical issues with it. Seems like something is always not working. First the internet, then email, now the camera, then the tracking ball. When it works, I love it.
Excerpt: Ive owned this phone for about 6 months and have had nothing but problems. It crashes constantly and freezes. It will also close all on its own even while youre in the middle of a conversation. No Adobe available for this phone.
Excerpt: I originally got this phone about a year ago and i was happy for the most party until recently. (verizon network) The phone started off really cool and fast but these days its just been a lemon. The phone runs really slow and freezes on me several times. i have to wait about 5mins for it to respond or I either have to pull out the battery and wait to restart the phone. (which typically takes about 5-10mins...) either way im wasting 5mins of my time when my phone freezes.
Excerpt: My wife and I didn't actually have to purchase our blackberry or pay for any type of service for it. She works at a software company and they gave her our blackberry for work purposes. This phone I would say is average at best. Yes is makes phone calls like every other cell phone and it can surf the internet like most other phones out there these days. Maybe it's just the network that we are on through my wife's work but surfing the internet on this phone is very slow.
Excerpt: About a year ago my work upgraded everyone to the Blackberry 8900 series. Naturally the 8900 had been an upgrade to the numerous previous version of Blackberries and this one certainly has a lot more features available. My previous model would not allow the downloading of the various applications so that feature was certainly new to me. My three biggest pet peeves with the phone is still the trackball. While relatively new the trackball operates flawlesslly. But as...
Excerpt: The Blackberry - RIM Curve 8900 Smartphone Cell Phone was my first venture into the world of smartphones. I was thrilled to be able to check my email 24/7 without having to turn on my computer and wait. I was also excited to check my Facebook account as often as I wish. However, the apps for Blackberry are few compared to the iPhone and Android market. Application availability aside, I can't believe that I needed to be a Blackberry expert to own this phone.
Excerpt: My brother had this one, got on his birthday. Not much impressive compared to its competition. Also it has not new features than we know of. RIMM did not put much of his R &D in designing this phone otherwise they would have come up with IPhone killer. Its 3.2 MP Camera and GPS Navigation is sluggish. camera does not have proper simple zooming facility. GPS is flacky does not give proper direction at all.
