Summary: I bought this Blackberry 9220 Curve Smarsphone and shipped it overseas to my son as a gift. He said its a good phone, but wished it had a flash camera. I therefore, recomend this Blackberry Curve to anyone who is looking for a good inexpensive Smartphone without a flash camera.
Excerpt: This device is for you if your lifeline depends on email, social apps and chats. But not good for browsing and gaming. The BB Apps world offers limited choices (which is understandable considering its not APPLE or GOOGLE PLAY STORE) and based on my usage, it is very difficult to download APPS...
Pros: very good OS 7.1, Intricate FB and Twitter integration on its OS
Cons: EDGE means slow internet connection. No 3G., Mediocre camera and video., Apps difficult to download., Mediocre battery life., Slow GPS tracking.
Summary: The handset is very handy and I am sure people who wants to move away from Touch phone experience and go for basic phone features at a very affordable price will find it very attractive. But I did not find the camera so great. Otherwise on other fronts I am very happy with overall features.
