Blackberry 8220

Howard Ellis, Amazon

  • Summary: I could never get the WiFi to work without telling you have to get a data plan. T Mobile couldn't fix it either. Needed update which I could not supply. No fault of the supplier.

The camera on this Blackberry 8220 SUCKS

  • Excerpt: I was given this phone as a gift, so I hate to complain. But the pictures taken with this phone looks like pictures taken with the cheapest phone out there. The pictures that are sent to my RIM Blackberry look clear but the ones I take are so fuzzy. I had the phone for a while before I tried the camera so I missed out on the 14 day return policy.

The Blackberry Pearl is a waste of money.

  • Excerpt: The Blackberry Pearl flip phone was one of the worst investments I have ever made.  I love the aspects of all the blackberry phones, such as blackberry messenger, however this version was cheap and not worth the money!  My phone froze constantly, taking FOREVER to reboot itself to working order, AFTER I had to take the battery out just to get it back to the home screen.

Mmmmm....not so much!

  • Excerpt: I've had my Blackberry 8220 Pearl Flip for almost two years now and I really have had a lot of problems with it. It looked really good and stylish in the store and I wanted a flip so I wouldn't have to worry about it while in my purse (like dialing someone because the buttons got pushed accidentally) However, it was such a bear to figure out after using a Motorola Razr phone that was so easy to use! The keyboard is crazy wierd and texting can be a challenge!

The blackberry flip is not a very good device.

Shikimaru17, Viewpoints

  • Excerpt: At first glance, it may look quite good. It looks nice, it's flippable, it has an external screen for quick viewing of things, and it's by blackberry. Well, I enjoyed the device for quite a while, but it was my second phone, keep that it mind. The blackberry flip may seem like a step back, but it's more of a neutral step, as it's for people who like blackberry products but don't like that it is like a one part rectangle.

The Blackberry RIM Pearl 8220 is not worth the money!

  • Excerpt: If I had the money to get a new phone--I wouldn't hesitate! Why?1. It didn't take long for the face of the phone to stop working. I don't see a thing if I don't flip the cover!2. The icons are confusing and sometime disappear for apparently no reason. My husband and I have the same exact phone, and our icons suddenly become different.3. The battery life is not what I need. I feel like I am always having to charge the phone.4.

  • Excerpt: The Blackberry Pearl seemed promisin.  It had a lot of features, and it was a flip, which I like.  Turned out to be fairly dissipointing. I didn't mind the ball, but that's about it!  Don't get this phone!

The blackberry pearl is mediocre at best

Thomason0912, Viewpoints

  • Excerpt: This is the 2nd Blackberry Pearl I've had and I'm really not that impressed.  First I'll talk about what I do like.  I like the size of it because it fits in my pocket easily.  I also like the flip because I can talk into something, which I like.  Also when its in my pocket or purse, the buttons don't get pressed like on my other blackberry (which would dial 911 even when locked).  I like the clock on the front, but it doesn't stay on because it wears down the battery.

"Least favorite phone I have ever owned. Buyer beware!"

Ms_Monroe, CNET

  • Pros: The overall phone size, no pocket dialing, the clock on the screen is kind of neat.
  • Cons: Poor quality camera, small screen, texting is difficult, phone locks up & you have to take out the battery to restart it, not user friendly, delayed messages.

"Not near as good as other Blackberry phones"

srj9, CNET
17 August 2010
  • Pros: The phone is a Blackberry so it still has all the good things about a Blackberry much in a much simpler form, the buttons are larger so it's easier to type things.
  • Cons: The phone isn't made very well. I have always been a Pearl user and I wouldn't of traded my previous Pearls for anything but this phone just feels like its going to break in half they're very lightweight but aren't made near as well in my opinon.
