I dont like to text on it and i dont like everytime i turn around its telling me a i have a new message i thinking maybe getting another phone its just not for me
Excerpt: i used to have this phone for a year, and it sucked. we had t mobile service. we ended up returning the phone a total of 7 times before i switched to a diff. brand. the scroll button fell out, yje wi fi didnt work the battery life is horriable and it turns off randomly.
Excerpt: Pros: quad-band global phone if you travel a lot. High resolution screen. Cons: keys are unpredictably laggy. Software is not user friendly. You have to press half a dozen times to get the timer/alarm set. Screen freezes during cold winter time. Battery only lasts for one day after a little over 1-year very light use. I have to carry the charger everywhere I go. This is my first blackberry and also the last one.
This phone stinks - I should have kept my Pearl 8110
9 September 2012
Excerpt: Less than a year ago, I bought the Pearl Flip to replace my Pearl 8110 (bar). I loved the Pearl but I had the habit of always but-dialing because I like to keep my phone in my jeans pocket, so I thought that the flip would solve my problem. I have not been happy with this phone since I bought it. The phone itself is cheaply made - especially the back part you take off to get to the battery.
Excerpt: The Blackberry Pearl 8220 Flip phone does not live up to the hype. I was looking for a phone that could keep track of my schedule, e-mail, and calendar and would sync with my MacBook. I was interested in a touch screen phone. I described my requirements to the customer service representative who told me that the touch screen was not consistent and that I should try this phone. She assured me that it had all the capeabilities I was looking for. Boy was she wrong.
Summary: So much for buying a new product from The OEM Store. The phone stopped charging after two weeks of normal use. The OEM Store responce: I am so sorry to hear you have had a problem with your order. Unfortunately our return policy is only for 7 days from the receipt of your package and our records do show your item is no longer covered under the return period. Regretfully, we are not able to further assist you with this matter.
