Summary: The blackberry 9550 is by self a good phone but I have had constant trouble when it comes to downloading using blackberry desk top manager, I have nothing good to say about intelisync sometime it will screw up your contacts other times it the calender and as of yet there is no work around this problem.
Summary: It is suposed to be unlock but I can't access my voicemail nor my email thru the Wi-Fi. It ask for a BlackBerry passcode which I do not have and is always asking for activation with Verizon. Many times calls will not go thru nor received. The only benefit is the battery which last longer than my other phone.
Excerpt: "I was given this phone when starting my last job and had it been a personal purchase, i probably would have returned it. It wasn't the worst phone- it had key functionality like excellent push email, app store, business functions and the design of the phone was nice. However, for me, there were some major flaws. The touchscreen 'push down' was a great idea; however, mine often froze and didn't work correctly which was rather annoying. The emails ...
Pros: Email functionality is by far its best quality - great features !
Cons: Battery life, predictive text, push down touch screen were all in need of improvement
Excerpt: "I received my Blackberry Storm2 about 10 months ago and in my experience have had nothing but problems with it, mainly the touch screen stops functioning properly. I like the handset when it is full working order, it is easy to use, great for business use and has a wide range of handy and fun apps but I never seem to get to use it properly as it is always away for repair. Within the 10 months I have had to send the handset back 9 times, 5 of those ...
Pros: Good for a business environment, good choice of apps
Excerpt: "...not the best introduction to Blackberry so maybe my opinion is tainted? The latest issue I have found with my storm 2 is the camera doesnt work for weeks on end and then randomly starts working again. Everytime I find it to be working, I feel privileged to be able to take a photo! Not outstanding. This review I titled 'smackberry' because of the amount of times I have fixed little issues by smacking it against my desk! When I trod on it and broke ...
Summary: I have owned a Storm 2 since January 2010 and at first I was impressed with the handset. This is the first Blackberry I have had and was very excited to see what it had to offer. Sadly, after owning it now for around abotu 20 months, I won't be getting another Blackberry when my contract is up for renewal.
Summary: I renewed my contract last year and wanted a blackberry for some strange reason i chose this phone. Good points: Looks good, its not a touch screen (which i was happy about as they can be annoying) the screen is actually a button and works quicte well. Its pretty easy to use and get the hang of, memory pretty good, have alot of music installed and pictures, apps are not as good as iphone but you get alot of choice.
Summary: I have had this phone since around Easter time and have been far from impressed by its performance. I am on my second replacement as it has broken twice since I got it. When the phone works correctly it is a brilliant phone. It's quick and easy to use with its simple touch screen interface. The icons are big enough to be clicked using your finger, and using the on screen touch keyboard is easier than I had thought it would be.
Summary: A good looking, if excessively weighty handset. My main complaints are the irritatingly illogical, fiddly unintuitive software which makes even the most basic tasks such as editing your contacts lists or text editing of SMS and email messages a frustrating nightmare. The downloadable user manual, all 320 pages of it, is totally unhelpfull, badly assembled, the menu option quoted often dont exist on the handset for my 5.0 software version even though the manual is version...
