Summary: yes the phone came within 5 business days but, when i open the package up i was expecting something like a "Phone and a charge" yet i only received a "Phone" NO CHARGER <<TF? and top of that the phone was dusty/a little dirty then it was things already on the phone memory (pictures of of white...
Summary: I bought this phone in October because I did not want to extend my AT&T contract with an upgrade. It is stylish looking and worked very well until three months later when it just quit. No warranty so I'm out of luck. Would not purchase this phone again.
Excerpt: This phone was great the first week, but can not handle heavy volumes of text and emails. I've replaced the "Jack" three times with my insurance and I only have one month left on my contract before I can replace it. I highly recommend "not" getting this phone.
Pros: Big Screen, Sleek Color, Easy typing/texting
Cons: Clunky and heavy, No accessories available, Phone locks up too much, Phone feezes up alot, Have to reset the phone to factory settings every two weeks, Slow internet speed, Lack of knowledge from AT&T techs when needed, No headphone jack, Lack of Caller ID pics and Ringtone ID, Windows Menu takes...
Excerpt: This phone was alright, being my first phone. But after about two months, it started taking a bit of time to load anything i wanted to open, forever to delete my messages, and the top back plate broke off, exposing the insides!
Excerpt: Have owned this phone for 14 months and have had it replaced by the manufacturer 2 times because the battery will not hold a charge. It's a nice phone when it works, but I've spent more time with it charging, having it checked at the phone store, and waiting around for the phones to get mailed back...
Excerpt: Looking for a new corporate phone to replace our aging fleet of phones, including my old school HTC 8525, I picked up the new Jack. The key pad appeared easier to use than the old Black Jack 2's that we have running around the office, but this proved not to be the case.
Pros: Call quality was nice. Ozzy likes it, so my kids thinks it's cool. Looks like a Blackberry, but you don't have to be a Crackberry to have one.
Cons: Windows Mobile Pro, where are you? Browser is just as bad as the other Black Jacks. Key board is a type-o waiting to happen.
Excerpt: If it's a smart phone, it better have great e-mail management and superior connectivity. On the AT&T network, it has neither. Not sure if that's unique to AT&T, but I was shocked to see this phone's high rating. Pros: Great display. Rarely drops calls. Cons: - Kludgey Web browser...
Excerpt: Not worth the effort it took to figure this phone out. It sucks. I have returned 3 and can now get something else. Thank God. I never had a pda before and everyone it talked to said it was messed up. I have never used the media net b/c it doesn't work.
Excerpt: I have had many smart-phones over the years...I have used and still occasionally use the OG Blackjack, however this BJII is the absolute worst I have had the displeasure of using. My OG Blackjack runs WM 6 and still blows this thing out of the water, and runs faster as well.
Excerpt: I've had this phone for 2 weeks, since having a BBerry for over 2 years. I had to upgrade, by BBerry broke, so I thought I'd expand my horizons. Here's what I found: On the BBerry, I had a single inbox.
