I really don't like this phone

Devon, Phone Arena
29 May 2010
  • Excerpt: I have this phone and I hate it. This phone sucks. My first one that I got had it turned on, and with in 2 hours it fried the hard drive in itself, then I got a new one, and now it will just shut off, when it wants to, my clock won't hold the correct time.
  • Pros: looks
  • Cons: shuts off when it wants, doesn't keep good time, will lose time, to many steps to get to something, slow internet

less than stellar device

knuckleballer34, Phone Scoop

  • Excerpt: This was a really disappointing device. I've had several Blackberries over the years, and when I recently switched to Verizon, I decided to give this a try. In the end, the only thing that satisfied me with the device was the price. Pros: 1. It's a great looking phone.

Not a worthwhile upgrade to the Verizon Pearl 8130

BLubak1, Phone Scoop
23 June 2009
  • Excerpt: Those on Verizon who already own the BlackBerry Pearl 8130 will not find the Pearl Flip 8230 a worthwhile upgrade unless you're desperately in need of a new device because of classic Pearl trackball problems or otherwise.

BB PEARL FLIP

DAGMAN, Phone Arena
14 May 2009
  • Excerpt: i like the keypad for ease of touch. difficulties finding menu items as this is my first bb. calculator very limited compared to samsung versions. took one back as it did not recognize media cards. bb website does not differentiate flip 8220/8230 unless you really dig even though they are different.
  • Pros: LARGER KEYPAD VS OTHER BB
  • Cons: FOR THE HYPE OF BB THE FEATURES OF MY NONSMART PHONES I LIKED BETTER AND WAS ABLE TO NAVIGATE AND USE THE ONES I WANTED WITH EASE.
