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.
Blackberry Pearl 8110 is a fun and multifunctional phone.

Excerpt: The Blackberrry Pearl 8110 was a little hard to figure out at first. However, it is a fun phone and has a lot of features. The phone is multifuntional but probably not the best phone for tech savoy people. The keys are a little small for texting and the trackball tends to get stuck often. I found that the phone does not ring very loud. Overall, I am content with the phone but will most likely upgrade soon.
Excerpt: 8110 BlackBerry Pearl Red is the best phone I have ever had. And here is why: Keyboard: Keyboard on this phone is very weird. It is complicated and it takes a while to get used to. All the symbols and letters are located in mixed places and it's hard to find them sometimes. I have been a Samsung user for quite a while and I should say it's very hard to type a simple text message on this phone.Menu:Phone Menu is weird too.
Excerpt: i am pretty surprised this phone got descent rating because my personal experience is not good at all. i did not use this phone but my husband did and he always always had problems with it. to begin with it would take forever for the phone to come on and the worst thing about this phone is that the track ball was horrible. it got stuck immediately. i have known so many people that used this phone and they all had problems with it except one person...
The Blackberry pearl is pretty nifty and just perfect!

Excerpt: I've been using the blackberry for about 8 months now and think its one of the most efficient phones I've ever had. Are you thinking along the lines of keeping organized for business purposes? Need an organizer, and a program to store those passwords you might just forget? What about a calendar that efficiently reminds you of upcoming events you have previously recorded? Well then! Blackberry pearl is the cell phone you should have!
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: A good phone but has its pros and cons great phone when it comes to downloading apps and internet browsing however it freezes up @ times for no reason. Bought the phone from tmobile and have a love and hate relationship with it love it whn it.
Blackberry Pearl 8110 - stylish and cool but not the perfect one
22 April 2010
Excerpt: I wanted Blackberry Pearl 8110 because it is light, slim, good-looking and a smart phone. I am satisfied with all of these characteristics of it but I have to admit that it is not as user-friendly as I imagined. To be more specific, I find its writing software very confusing and its keyboard very hard to use.
