Summary: Not so great on looks.. rather clumsy design. Many features missing and one needs a prepaid account. However, it functions ok. Rather highly priced and if its not the Blackberry label you are looking for, I am sure you could buy a more satisfactory phone Media player with audio and video playback in...
Summary: Great phone with so many options clearly marked by icons. Love the bluetooth capability and really clear resolution of pics, even at 2.0 MP and one click access button on side. Its sleek and thin and shiney.
Excerpt: Well, its been along time since I had this phone. The phone takes good 2.0 megapixel pictures. The camer a settings are sparse. Web browsing isnt the best, but it gets the job done. The SureType QWERTY keybaord might not be for everyone. It took me 3 days to get the hang of it.
Excerpt: I have owned the Blackberry Pearl for almost a year. I've found that there are very few problems unless I caused them myself, ie: water damage, dropping the phone, etc. I was told from the very beginning that you had to baby the track ball-- so I did.
Excerpt: When I originally got this phone, I suffered with feelings of phone-inadequacy, since the Pearl is by far the smallest in the Blackberry lineup. After countless nights wondering whether I'd inadvertently purchased a girl-phone, I saw several guys on "The Unit" carrying this phone...problem solved.
Excerpt: this phone is the best when you first get it!! but then after a week and a half, it slows down. my phone started freezing, and at one point in time, it wouldnt show me my pictures or songs on my phone, from my memory card but the pictures and songs came up when i plugged it into my computer!!
Pros: -great features, -great design, -receive messages fast, -music player is crystal clear! (i love music), -camera is good for a phone, -trackball speed is adjustable
Cons: -no trackball, no usage, -microphone picks up loud noise, even when there is no loud noise, -echo often, thats all i can think of
Excerpt: I would def. recommend this phone to the people who are intrested in buying it. It's a small phone, but it has SO many fun features-I can't stop playing with it! It does tend to freeze up here and there . . & it can be a little slow too, but you just be patient w. it.
Excerpt: This was the first smartphone that I jumped to. It was a huge upgrade from a previous phone that I owned. Over all, this phone has a lot of great options. Pro's: - Screen quality is great. - Keyboard is easy to use, once you get a hang of it. - Phone's OS is easy to operate.
Excerpt: I've had my phone for 9 mos now. I had problems with the track ball sticking, the battery not holding a good charge, phone calls being erased from time to time; but I took it in and had it replaced and have not had any problems with the replacement phone and I've had it for 5 mos.
Pros: Small size, Great features - everything the big blackberry's have, Easy to navigate through
Cons: Keys are small, Call logs are erased from time to time - don't know what causes it, Doesn't wirelessly sync with Outlook
