Excerpt: I have always heard great things about the blackberry phone. My boy friend had ne when they first came out and he had a lot of problems with the phone. They had to replace his phone before 6 months pass. The battery life was bad.
Excerpt: ok this was one of my first blackberry that i had, since the begining the cellphone fit good on the pocket, has a good screen not so big not so small, the bad thing about this smartphone is doesnt have wifi bad for RIM, but anyway the phone has a good camera resolution and its kind of slow but acceptable.
Trackball can make navigation annoying, though compact in size

Excerpt: This phone often drives me crazy. The trackball can be too sensitive or not sensitive enough. There is limited memory capacity available without buying an addional card. Pictures are so-so. I am ready for a new phone!
Excerpt: I'm a simple person with simple needs.. and I find my blackberry can't do the basics easily. My husband got me this phone as an upgrade from an old Nokia I had. Sure I was excited at first, but then was dissapointed when I found it couldn't do the basic things easily. All I wanted was to be able to check my email, check Facebook, text my friends and call. Well! The browser was way too slow and didn't display most of the content on many web pages.
Excerpt: I must say that this phone is terrible. There is a host of issues that I've encountered and I feel it is the worst phone I have EVER had. I'm on my 3rd blackberry pearl phone. The only reason I've had 3? Well, I bought the warranty. The phone sounds great on paper, but there are so many issues that I have had with it. One being the software problems. It always seems like the software is crapping out on itself.
Excerpt: I bought this on the recommendation of the T-Mobile salesperson; ignoring my wife's advice. Three days later the salesperson was telling me "to be patient" and that I would "get used to it". Since then, the BlackBerry Pearl 8120 Frost has only given me problems. There were long delays in doing simple things like making calls and texting. Going through the menus was a nightmare; they are like trying to find your way through Alice's Wonderland.
Pros: Has the features one would expect in an entry-level smartphone (they just don't work), The camera takes sharp, well-defined pictures
Cons: Blackberry customer service is non-responsive/non-existent, The device is incapable of doing basic operations without failure, The "Help" menu is not at all helpful
