Summary: I have owned a couple of Blackberrys now, including one I use for work, and I like the build quality, ease of accessing and phoning contacts, the way that texts and e-mails work, and being able to easily and quickly access web pages such as weather, news, sports and Facebook. My Curve gave up the ghost after being flung across a busy road (don't ask!
Blackberry Pearl 3G 9105: My Blackberry 9105, mixed feelings
7 January 2013
Summary: I have had my Blackberry 9105 for 15 months, it is my first and only Blackberry and I am afraid to say that it might be my last one. On a positive note, the phone looks impressive, it is quite sturdy and although I always meant to get a cover for it I have not bothered, it bounces around in my handbag and to be fair looks as good as new.
Summary: I used to be a Nokia devotee before their quality went off and have been looking for a successor brand. BlackBerry produce a high quality mobile and you should not be put off by the fact that it is favoured by business men & chavs. Although I am the wrong side of 50, I got my head round it quite quickly.
Summary: This is a brillant phone while it works. In my warrently period I had to have two replacements because of faulty keypads and the phone know longer excepting my Sim Card. I am now on the third phone (which I have been using for 8 months)and touch wood this one has been fantastic - not a single problem. It is very easy to use and it has been by far the best phone I have had for picking up a signal, even where i couldn't get a signal before I can with this phone.
Summary: I got my Pearl just over a year ago, and now I'm looking at an upgrade. I'm pretty sure I want a BlackBerry - a Torch, maybe, or a Bold - but they're both so BIG. Not only is the Pearl much slimmer - it'll easily fit in my jeans pocket - it does absolutely everything I need it to do: calendar, phone, text, BBM, Facebook, Twitter, web browsing, email, etc, etc.
Summary: This was my first Blackberry. I was attracted to the smallness and neatness of it. I wasn't disappointed. Setting the handset up for email was a piece of cake, even those inexperienced with these things can do it. Basically all that's needed is your email address and your password. If you don't have an email address you can or want to use, most service providers will provide you with a dedicated one to use on your Blackberry.
