Pros: Provided exactly what I needed - a good inexpensive unlocked GSM phone to use overseas with multiple SIM cards. Compared to the new smart phones the Blackberry 9000 is nothing special but it still can get the job done.
Cons: Older phone but I knew I wasn't going to get a new iphone for what I was looking to pay. This phone is still very functional at it's base level.
Summary: I must admit. Originally I tried another retailer but after TWO attempts I tried Targets site. Target is now my first choice. I ordered this Blackberry Bold 9000 and the product arrived quicker than I ever imagined, very FAST. The phone is unlocked and works with my current phone plan without having to change or renew my phone contract. The product was very well packaged no questions about it at all. The product worked like its supposed to.

It has a sleek design and the color screen is clear and easy to read. I would recommed the Bold to anyone that wants a PDA. The sound on it is really clear and the keys for texting are grat also.
Excerpt: Blackberry Bold is my third blackberry in 8 years. Loved each one but not as much as this one. I got the blackberry origninally for coprorate email and back up phone. This goes far beyond that. I wish that the internet interface for web surfing was much faster and better. I dont know if this is the ATT network or the Blackberry. If it is important to you then check it out at the store before you buy it.

Excerpt: The Blackberry Bold is a good phone. Easy access to email, the internet, and Microsoft Office viewers make the phon a must for business users and students, alike. However, I've found the phone to be highly vulnerable to accidental damage. The phone is easily damaged by even the most minute amounts of water. The volume control button is no longer functioning, a complaint I've found to be quite common among Bold users.
