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.
Summary: This product meets all of its claims except reliability. The battery charge does not sustain for the advertised period, thus affecting reliability. Further, the charge indicator is inacurate and goes from 1/2 indication to zero (off) without warning.
"Does not get all BB functionality verizon offers"
14 May 2010
Pros: Compact - workhorse
Cons: Skype?s app is restricted only to certain blackberries. "Sorry-not available for your phone - Switch to one of Verizon's best selling Blackberry 3G smartphones" It?s frustrating they are telling me to upgrade to a smartphone when I already have one.
Excerpt: Its just an all around great phone. I have had all sorts of smartphones and this one yeah its lightweight but it always pulls through for me. I never have to reset it. The suretype is really accurate. And for a flip phone still retains a good new age look.
Pros: Great screen, Suretype, 3.5 mm headphone jack, micro sd, micro usb, good processing speed, its a blackberry.
Cons: BB browser still slow but who uses it when there is opera mini, feels a little cheap
