Love my BB Pearl Flip 8230!

Summary: I know -- this is an obsolete model and I had to exchange the first one because it wouldn't charge, but I bought a 2nd one once the replacement arrived and worked, and I'm happy except that hubby and his boss and my BFF all complain about the sound. That could be my voice as they complained on other phones, too -- I often have a scratchy voice. When we switched providers to Verizon, this was the only BB flip available, and I loved my old BB Pearl so got these on Amazon.
Summary: Ordered this blackberry for my husband who likes only flip phones (no accidental 'pocket dialing' for him!) It's a bit difficult lately to find flip style phones, so i was thrilled to have found this one. Good size, thin, beautiful clock and screen. (BTW, had to find it used because blackberry has discontinued this style).
Summary: After years of carrying a smartphone, I just wanted to go back to my flip phone days. The one thing stopping me was the convenience of a Google Voice app to handle dialing. Although this is technically a smartphone, it's a pretty aged one, and I use it on a prepaid carrier without access to blackberry services, so it's basically a dumb phone with Google Voice, which is exactly what I wanted.
Summary: This is not a bad phone for the money. This phone is already two years old, thought is was more recent. The product came new in the box, but no engraving pen - key chain )came with it. don't know if I would use it any way, nice thought though. The picture on Amazon shows a different screen then the one that is on the phone, new phone has a clock wrist watch looking when closed. The phone also requires that you get a DATA PLAN through Verizon wireless.
Summary: I've bought 2 phone about a month ago from this seller and i have to say its really not a bad phone i got it for my 2 sisters who lost their phone and needed new ones and they love it the Ups: It came in 1 week after i placed the order. It works just as good as another BB. You don't butt dial. The camera takes some really good pictures. the Downs: There is no wi-fi. the memory is not that much so you will need a SD card.
Summary: Good item but carrier forced to have data plan so got rid of the phone. I hate when you have to rwrite a review an you don't really want to, this a very lame feature of the web site. Please give option just for rating and that's it.
