Summary: The Blackberry Pearl 8130 is, by far, my favorite phone of all time. I wish that BB would make a comeback of this device. After owning several different types of cell phones, the Pearl was the coolest, slimmest, and surprisingly easiest to type on, all the time.
Summary: It's my third Blackberry Pearl and I didn't realize this one I got from an Amazon seller was NEW! I love the orange color and I feel SO lucky to get it. I noticed others were watching for sales of the item and it doesn't surprise me.
Summary: Overall, this is a pretty nice phone but there are some minor things that could be improved upon. Instead of babbling on about things that don't matter, I'll just provide a list of pros and cons.
Summary: I LOVE the fact that it has a camera... My previous blackberry was the world edition, which does not have a camera and I missed the camera badly... I kept it for a year and then decided it was time for me to upgrade my phone, so i went on ebay and bought this one...
Excerpt: I really love this phone! It's my second blackberry and I don't know how I ever lived without it :) .. I have two email accounts set up on it and in the morning it's so much quicker to check it on the phone than it is on the computer.
Excerpt: The phone would be mint if it didnt have a trackball on it!! As soon as the trackball goes on your phone: your phone is useless!!!I would not recommend any blackberry with a trackball on it!
Pros: Tons of APPS, Great sound quality LOUD, nice small buttons, sleek design
Cons: TRACKBALL, once the trackball goes your phone is USELESS, camera and video camera is not that good of quality, Quite slow on the internet, the battery goes both ways!! if your on the internet it runs out quick, but if your just txting people and or using it for calls it lasts awhile!!
Excerpt: I was leery of switching from Win Mo to a Blackberry but was soon won over by the sheer awesomeness of this phone. The keyboard takes a bit of getting used to but after the first day or two it comes with ease (I actually have a hard time using the QWERTY keyboard on my husbands Curve now).
Excerpt: As far as blackberries go this phone is on par with the curve or any other. Great size for sure, the best feature by far, a blackberry that doesnt feel like a boulder in your pocket. Yes the keypad takes a while to get used to, but once you do it really isnt bad.
