The things that I didn't like was the phone had the previous owners contacts and porn on it and couldn't get on the web it was a nice phone for the price though it arrived in good time
I didn't get any information on it, in order to activate it you need the serial code which is given to you after flash including the new phone number both of witch I did not receive.
I bought beacause the price was a temptation. Unfortunately, I canot use it in the Virgin Islands where I live, so I had to return it without using it.
This is a decent phone for an older model. I bought it for my husband, who likes having a hardware keyboard, but he didn't want a Blackberry. I put all my music on it, and it's great for that. The speaker is fairly loud, with decent sound quality. It does have the infamous Blackberry startup speed, although it takes roughly 3 minutes, which is better than it could be. The camera seems to be pretty good, but since I'm not using it as a phone, I can't say how good that is. I would assume the sound quality is good as a phone as well.
Thought it could be used in the Caribbean. It can't so it's money down the drain. Not sure in the description if it said that it does not take any sim.
