Summary: Looking for a flip phone that others said worked well I bought this one. I liked it at first. Now in February after buying it in November it has suddenly started strangely quickly using up all power and crashing when I use it to make a call. It will keep power as long as I do not use it!
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.
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...
Excerpt: This phone had great potential. Had they done more consumer testing before putting this phone on the market, it might have been a good phone! Pros: -sleek design -nice camera -bedside mode on flip (so screen isn't too bright to sleep) -loud ringer Cons: -slow, slow, slow!
