The faulty USB port makes it hard to charge at times
13 December 2012
Summary: First off, I want to say that I got this phone to simply text and make phone calls. I do NOT go on the internet, take photos, or anything else. I just needed a very basic phone for communication only. Anyway, the keyboard on this phone is excellent! I used to have an LG Xenon, which had a full keyboard. Because it had a full keyboard, I texted extremely slowly. As soon as I got this Blackberry Pearl, however, I was able to text very quickly.
Summary: Has a good camera, with flash zoom, etc, etc, be carefull with the use of memory because sometimes is like death. but if you know how ontain free space, works so good. In that cases go to options, secutity options, clean memory, and obtain a little more to work. you need buy a memory card and configure the phone to save photos there. If with these options no work, you need to put out the battery lasting 5 second out, and put the battery again, works good. So good luck!
Summary: I had problems with this item. It was supposed to be unlocked but it was blocked. I contacted the seller, and they tried to help me to solve it. After a couple of weeks, I got the phone unblock, and the seller sent me a complimentary because of the inconveniences. For sure the phone should be unlocked without requiring extra work, but was remarkable their interest for customer's satisfaction.
Excerpt: I have been a cellular phone user for more than 16 years and I can honestly say this is the most frustrating data device that I have ever used. Dont get me wrong the phone end of the unit is tops...good sound...good signal...and decient ringer, however the keyboard is a lesson in frustration. What were they thinking when they designed this phone? It seems the keys were designed for someone with long fingernails.
Not Blackberrys best, it's really nothing special ...

Excerpt: This is the first Blackberry phone that i owned and since having a more recent one i can really see the difference and this model is really not as good as the newer Blackberrys. I got this phone in pink as it looked absolutely stunning in the pictures, but it is nowhere near as pink as it looks in the adverts for the phone. So that was its first let down, secondly for such an expensive phone i expected it to be really clever and have loads of different applications.
Pros: It has nothing that really stands out to be honest
Cons: Not worth the money it's a pretty standard phone
Excerpt: This was the very first blackberry which I have owned, and I was eager to start using it when I got it from the shop on a 2 year contract. The phone looks very sleek and modern and feels nice in your hands. When I first turned it on I was quickly trying out all of the different options which the phone offered. The video/camera is not the best quality, and is mostly out of focus. It took ages to get used to all of the different settings and options.
Pros: Wi - fi, wide range of options, looks good, feels good
Excerpt: I use this phone for work, so it was not my choice to have it - it's the model I was given when I started. I was delighted to get a Blackberry, but I have to say my first reaction was surprise - I didn't know they came in small sizes! I don't use the phone as much as my personal Samsung, it's just that it's company policy for everyone to have one. I use it primarily for email, calls and internet browsing on the go.
Pros: Easy to use email and text mailboxes, maps, internet browser
Excerpt: I have had the blackberry pearl since march and i have to say it is the best thing i have bought. You can add all your email addresses onto the phone and when ever you receive an email it goes to your phone as well as your pc. The phone has a step by step to do this and is very easy to follow. Text messaging is easy to do and you can surf the net practically any where as long as you have a signal.
Pros: email,messaging on the go anytime
Cons: sometimes switches off if button caught in pocket
Excerpt: The Blackberry Pearl 8110 is a great, affordable alternative for those who want more than just a mobile telephone. It does everything that a normal mobile telephone does; sms (text), make/recieve calls, has an excellent camera/video and has a great music player. However, it also has the many gagets designed to help you run your life more smoothly. For example, the e-mail service is fantastic and one can store a link to various e-mail inboxes directly on one's desktop.
Pros: Easy to use, Fantastic e - mail, Looks great, Excellent value for money
Cons: The mobile occasionally freezes, however for no longer than a second
