Summary: I turn on the phone and the OS never started after about 30 min (thats a lot even for bb), i installed a new soft ver. the phone started ok and then the screen started to blink after 5 min, i removed the baterry and tested in other 8900, the other phone went crazy, the battery was the main reason of failure, so i buy a new battery and now everything is perfect (i hope).
Summary: This is my first smartphone. It's ok. I like what it can do and the camera is pretty ok. My issue is with the trackball. Whenever you talk on the phone, the oils from your face get all over the trackball, which eventually make it stop working. Unlike some of the other Blackberries, you can't actually remove the trackball to clean it. The entire phone has to be taken apart and some wiring needs to be taken apart to get to the trackball.
Summary: After receiving the unlocked Blackberry I discovered that the Blackberry Messenger Services are not included. And AT&T was no help in getting then installed, they say I would have to buy one of their locked Blackberry to get the services included. The seller, J&R, did give me the phone number of RIM but they are on vacation for some days. J&R sugguested that I download the services, but didn't give me specify direccions on specifically how to do this.
Summary: I purchased mine from Costco in June $49.99 with contract. For about a month everything was great, then the the back shell of the phone started getting lose. Right now 11-08-09 is even worse. I always carry it in the BB pouch. Everything else is still working great even over out of the country. Integrity of the 8900 compared to 8330 is terrible. my wife have had hers for 2 years and it still feel solid.
