Summary: Having had a BlackBerry Bold 9700 in the past and been impressed with it, I thought the Pearl looked even better; offering the same quality but in a smaller more 'mobile'(instead of smart) phone like style.
Summary: Pleasantly designed phone. Light with a bright screen of high definition. For those who prefer traditional form factor and one hand keyboard. Bluetooth works, so is 3G. By far the most serious drawback of the device is a quality of reception. It is so unbelievably unreliable.
Summary: Bought this as an upgrade after reading review and hate Blackberry's QWERTY key board. For a start, data would not be transferred using Blue tooth from my Old SE W610i. Would not link up with Broadband router at home. Ok still being patient and give it a chance.
Summary: this product was very good when i first got in id rate it 5 stars! but i had trouble with the middle button so i had to send it back and get a replacment.. so today i got my replacement and the volume button is not working, and i am very unhappy with this product!
Summary: When I first got this phone I was thrilled, it was exactly what I wanted in a smart phone, however 4 months down the line key pad faults occured. Really really frustrating! texting became impossible, you press for an A and get a B, press for a B and get a C..
Summary: I bought this to replace a nokia 'basic' phone. I love blackberrys (I've used several curves) so was really keen on seeing what the pearl has to offer. oh. Phone has 3 MAJOR flaws. 1) If the signal is broken then it doesn't always find the signal again...
first the keyboard, then locked calls to china and then the screen

Summary: Well overall the phone is good software wise, I have had the original pearl before and loved it. However this one is lacking in quality of build. The first phone I got sent, half the keyboard was coming off.
