Pros: Bright, hi-res screen. Great battery. Handy custom buttons (on mine, one is flashlight, one is camera). Lightweight. Small. Great telephone. Hand speed dial keyboard. Good build quality (had mine for 4 years). Good camera. Good music player. Handy speakerphone, mute, sleep buttons. Fantastic for the business person. BES service not cheap but super good.
Cons: Web browsing isn't great (use an older version of Opera, not the new one meant for non-trackball). Hard to sync with Google Calendar. Not a lot of apps.
Excerpt: The keypad fits perfectly for my fingers so typing with it is fine, in fact I’m writing this review using my Blackberry Curve 8900 Javelin now. And I must say that this phone has a quite remarkable strength as I’ve dropped it a couple of times and once my daughter accidentaly threw it till the battery came off, yet it is still in a pristine condition, no problem whatsoever.
Excerpt: amazing phone..used it for a really long with with absolutely no complications what so ever.. feels right in the hand.. easy to use.. worth the price..This is probably the best "narrow" full QWERTY keyboard you are going to ever find on a samrtphone..loaded with fun features and very easy to use.
Excerpt: I love this phone. It has a full QWERTY keyboard. I get both my personal and work email right at my finger tips. There are tons of free apps that let me check movie times, get directions, my horoscopes, facebook, myspace, twitter, I can price check items at other stores, and so much more. I have had this phone for a year now and am yet to have a single problem with it. Occassionally the trackball sticks but a drop of alcohol on it always clears it right up.
Excerpt: i like this blackberry curve because its very convient to use. it has very good call quality and it also has a great high resolution screen. i like that i can connect to the internet so fast and easily and be able to send e-mails so quick. i like that the apps are verye asy to access and its great if someone is looking for a good pda to use. i would recommend this phone to family and friends.
Excerpt: I've had this blackberry for over a year now and it's great. I'm not a very business person, i mostly use this phone to keep in touch with friends and family and its great. I can check my emails on the go and i can keep in touch by using the multiple chatting services on this device. I especially love blackberry messenger. The software, the media interface, and the camera all work great. For 3.2 megapixel camera, the quality is superb.
Excerpt: I LOVE this phone! I have never had a smart phone until now. This phone is sleek, small, stylish, and incredibly useful. The 3G network that the phone used is obviously not as fast as a DSL connection per se, but it is still quick enough to work well for me.
Excerpt: This phone is amazing. I used to own a blackberry pearl when that model first came out, and I was not too impressed, honestly. So, I was very hesitant and skeptical about getting this phone despite my friends' recommendations to do so. Also, I did not have to get the data/internet package with the pearl, but it's mandatory when you purchase this phone...
