Summary: This was advertised as a no contract phone and I thought it would be a nice upgrade to my current prepaid Verizon flip phone. Verizon tells me that a contract is required for this phone and the cheapest one they offer for it is $75./month. A significant difference from the $15 I currently pay because I am not a frequent user. The phone was returned to Amazon without problems and they appear to have changed the description. It's too bad.
Summary: This phone was not new as stated. The seal on the box was opened. The battery charged only 50%, then gave me an error message about the battery. Not compatible with my Verizon plan, which was not stated. The shipping time was as promised and timely.
Summary: The seller said it was new in box, it was in box the box had been opened.The box says, this package contains, blackberry pearl flip 8230 smartphone, standard lithium battery, 3.5 stereo headset,blackberry travel charger, USB data cable, documentation kit(including user tools CD) VZAccess manager CD-ROM and Quick reference guide. Of those nine items listed I only got the phone, battery,wall charger,manager CD-Rom and the quick reference guide.
