Summary: The phone I received (BB 8120) appears to be a jail-broken AT&T unit: it has the AT&T logo. It came without any desktop software and a very--very!--rudimentary set of instructions. On the other hand, It was new, booted up in English and worked out of the box with my T-mobile SIM card. . The device software version is v126.96.36.199; There is an update on the AT&T web site (v188.8.131.526) which I did not bother with.
Summary: I was planning to go oversee and I needed to have a blackberry that was not locked so that I could send bb messages to my family and save cost of communication. This phone served the purpose well. However, the product manual was incomplete and I had a hard time figuring out how to use some functions on the phone. Great phone though. Overall, a great shopping experience.

Excerpt: I really like my BlackBerry. I have had the Pearl for 3 years and im thinking about getting the Curve or the Bold. I like being able to send BBM and pics. It freezes up sometimes but that is my only complaint. I wish my carrier had the Torch!
Excerpt: I got my phone 3 months ago and thought it would be hard to use. I called customer service and they helped me alot. I also just experimented with differnt functions and learned alot. I don't knoew how I lived with out. I run a small home based business and now I can answer emails very quickly. I also have the web at my fingertips and can get all my answers alot faster.
Excerpt: When it comes to deciding which cell phone to purchase, it's easy to become overwhelmed with all of the choices out there. When I went to purchase my new phone, my top three choices were the Blackberry Pearl, the Google Phone and the iPhone. I decided that the Blackberry Pearl was all I really needed. I like the small, compact form of the phone.
Excerpt: I always wanted a Blackberry. I have one now and I have to say that there are many features that I don't use. I am a busy person but unless you have a use for staying connected with business I would say that this phone is overhyped. It has a very poor quality construction. It is made of very cheap plastic that gets scratched if you just look at it. It is lightweight, I'll give it that.
