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.
Summary: !!HATE IT!!! Totally not worth the money! I have only had it for a few weeks and it has pieces of it breaking off, I have never droped it or been rough with it. It also will not let me send pictures.
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...
Summary: I've had my Black Jack II for a couple months now. I like that the letters are perfectly spaced so I don't push five keys at once. I also like that it's big, the screens big and the phones big...impossible to lose.
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.
