Wouldn't buy it again.

  • Summary: The phone is compact but even for a young person, the keys are too compact. Sound quality is very poor as well. We used it for a couple of days then put it in storage.

  • Summary: It did not show in picture that this phone is an at&t. The pictures should match the real item on it.

  • Summary: The phone itself is good, but it came without PIN. Contacted the dealer, but he not solved and so my low rating, but it would be an excellent phone, which is practical and simple

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!

hate it

  • 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.

Don't buy this phone

  • 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.

Bane of my tech life- BlackBerry Pearl 8120 Frost

Christopher, Phone Arena
11 April 2010
  • 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
