For the price, the phone can't be beat, I sold my new high tech touch screen phone for this one, if all you need is texting, and phone, this is it, keypad feels great, phone feels solid and indestructable, stylish and has great reception. It may not be the best choice for people that need internet on their phone, but for texting the layout of the text messages is perfect, and for phone calls the speakerphone and speaker inside the phone are perfectly loud and clear. it's easy to type with the phone, and there are no typing pads to flip out. It charges USB with almost any device. If this phone had a memory card option to fill its space with music that would be nice too.
I bought this item as gift for my sister-in-law at a very affordable cost. She was incredibly amazed with its features which included: Java Enabled, MMS Enabled, Polyphonic Ringtones, Color Screen, Bluetooth Enabled, Calendar, Email Access, Internet Browser, MP3 Player, PDA-PC Sync, Text Messaging, QWERTY Keyboard, Push to Talk, Speakerphone, USB Interface. She just inserted her sim card and started making calls!!
She was also thrilled with the deep blue colour of the phone. I was very glad she loved it.
I would recommend this item to others.
This is an older model phone, not really user friendly. I still need to work on removing the security lock.
The battery life is good, the voice is clear and the price is reasonable. These are the conditions I am looking for a phone for overseas use when I travel. This serves my purpose.
If only I can remove the security lock so that I do not need to unlock the phone each and every time I use, that will be even better.
This is a Good BlackBerry Model with most functions, Phone e-mail, text messaging and instant messaging, And Web browsing, it does not have video/Camera,
I like the Qwerty Key board, which is great for typing, I have several cell phones in my household, and this is an excellent main unit and or back up.
When I need to traval light and fast an not take a laptop computer, BlackBerry is awesome. I can use one for phone calls, and a 2nd for email, messages etc..
My BlackBerry Curve will remain my main unit. If you want all the bells and whistles get a newer model.
Very nice phone. Solid, easy-to-use, durable and long lasting battery. It´s a blackberry, after all!! Mine is working in Portugal, very good reception, altough i don´t have any blackberry communication plan (so i cannot access to e-mail or bb network, etc.), i´m limited to phone calls, sms, mms, wap and other functions except the bb service and browser. It works fine on Opera browser, and java apps. Very good for notes, appointments, agenda etc. Nice syncrhonization with outlook. Very handy. I´m very pleased.
