I have owned this phone now for approx 6mo. I decided to buy it for the camera/video capability it has. Having a new granddaughter. I wanted to have a camera handy all the time w/out having to pull out My camera out of my purse. When I first got it, I said to them.."Well, I guess this will have to do a lot of reading to learn to use this phone!". The salesperson said to me, "No, actually it doesn't come w/a book. You can come in & take free classes every Saturday morning @9a.m." I thought.. "Are you serious?? 9a.m. on a Saturday to learn to USE MY PHONE???!!" Well, I just took it home & began "playing" with it. I have yet to take a class. And, I will have to say..this phone is VERY user friendly. Even though I have discovered it is like a "little computer" in your hand, I have yet to do anything to it to "mess it up". I've taken some GREAT pictures with it, videos, etc. It has setting on it like a camera. It's pictures come out good enough to print and share. I took a picture in the dark of the full moon & the skyline in my backyard (which is VERY dark) and, you could see the line of the trees with the glow of the moon behind it. If you are into "Facebook", it will take you right in there & it works just as if you were at home on your pc. It looks a little different since you aren't on a full pc screen. But, you can take a pic, click share, it will pull up another screen and give you approx 15 ways to share it. Whether it be facebook, email, txt msg, & many more. Within 5sec, your picture is live on facebook. I like this since it also has a satellite on it that you can click on in the facebook & it will pull up EVERY wi-fi near you. Most places have them. And, you can share where you took the picture at & just as in facebook it gives you room for a comment. Another GREAT feature on this phone is the FREE GPS that comes w/the unlimited internet/web access. It is SO accurate. It is comparable to one that you would pay $100's of dollars for to mount on your dash. If you make a wrong turn, it will zone in on your car & re-route you back to where you are going. Once you reach your destination & have slowed down your vehicle, a REAL picture of your location shows on your screen. So, no guessing. The picture of the house, business, etc is right there for you to see. Amazing!! No more need for "Map-quest" :) Also, while you are in any of these programs, calls can still come in, if you want to answer you can, hang up & the program picks up right where you left off before you got the call. It holds a good charge & charges quickly. The only thing that is a negative to this phone (and it's not a big-deal) is keeping the screen clean since you are always holding it to your face. But, if I'd buy some screen covers, THAT would be solved!:) The bluetook capability is great & works quite a ways away from the phone. The speed of the downloads & the internet is the same as the wireless pc that I use at home. No waiting, VERY fast! utube & you also can share anything from the internet & utube at a touch. Hit share, up pops a window, hit share & up pops your address book. My sister also has Verizon & she gets my shares within seconds of me sending. Another great feature..Free Pandora music, great sound w/equilizer. If I had it to do over, I'd buy it again. Thank you Motorola for once again creating a GREAT cell! And, VERIZON.. I wouldn't change a thing. I've been nothing but happy w/them. And, I have had other providers. I love my DroidX!!
When I received my package I was pretty excited, this was my 2nd blackberry and didn't disappoint me. The box came with everything the seller advertised at the action (3 batteries, USB cable, charger with around the world adapters, unlocked condition) and a leather glove to use as a holster.
At first, it was very weird having to push the screen feeling a little click, but now it feels pretty natural. Texting on this phone is easier than other smartphones with touch screen. Media files are very well supported, and the browser works great. I loved the way how RIM decided to use the standard jacks for headphones, now I won't have to look for an adapter to use my phone as an MP3 player in my car. I disliked and loathed the very short demos of games that were downloadable once I installed the phone to my computer with the software that came in the box. Also, I wish I didn't need to wipe all data from the phone to stop receiving E-mails meant to be for the previous owner. Actually, the only real problem that the phone had was that I had to reconfigure the connection so I could use my SIM card on it (but hey, Verizon didn't block my phone so it really was unlocked). But let's get back to the good stuff. I love the wide variety of themes and apps that are downloadable for this thing. I recently downloaded a few and it was great using the WiFi to directly download OTA and installing without having to connect to the PC once more. I also tried the already installed app for viewing doc, ppt and xls files and I felt pretty cool with this stylish viewer. This phone is still lacking and alarm for the clock to wake up, but it can be arranged with the auto-on followed with a reminder at the desired our. Speaking of reminders, I loved how I can choose the frequency of reminders to be certain days of the week, something that was lacking on my 8100, had to put 5 different reminders on the calendar (one for each day of the week I needed to wake up early) and then set them to be weekly, so my congratulations for thinking to RIM about that. Something that improved was resolution of the camera, but unfortunately, nor did the quality of image. When looking at my photos from the 9550, they don;t seem too much different than the 8100, but it doesn't bother me too much. Video works pretty neat, really liked that camera. But I think the thing that I loved the most was the holster, comes with a sort of magnet that the phone can detect when it is put on and then it locks screen and turns of the lights. The phone can be configured to answer as soon as it's out of holster and that is awesome.
I really loved this phone, it really is a nice investment and is a great improvement. Fast to load (compared to the 8100), wide variety of file support for media, smart touchscreen, texting's better than ever with truetype and lots of virtual keybords to choose from in case you're not into qwerty very much, fast navigation within phone menus and internet, fast on/off response from wifi and bluetooth, wide variety of apps and themes, stylish design, etc make enough to call this what the 9500 should have been at first: the best RIM BlackBerry ever, even better than the Torch
The blackberry 9550 is by self a good phone but I have had constant trouble when it comes to downloading using blackberry desk top manager, I have nothing good to say about intelisync sometime it will screw up your contacts other times it the calender and as of yet there is no work around this problem. My storm 9530 will upload and down load with no issues so I am sure its not my outlook 2010 or my operating system (vista) I have looked at crack berry forums and others are having the same difficulties. As a cell phone its wonderful and full of features for media, pictures & videos and its great they came with a 16GB card for extra storage of documents pdf files excel files ect. The storm 2 is awesome as a cell phone great quality in the audio, it links up with blue tooth devises with little effort, hands free is load and clear. The touch screen is a little difficult to get used to. Its not very user friendly and unless you plan on paying for the data plan forget emails even with WIFI it wont let you set up a pop3 account. I find I have to hit some buttons multiple times to get it to enter functions that are close to the edge of the screen, I certainly wouldn't buy this model new although then blackberry would have been responsible for these problems, they are still updating its software for more features and improvements its too bad they didn't release a OS upgrade to ver # 6 that looked like it would have really made the phone much easier to use. I would recommend a HTC before another blackberry.
I have Cricket for my cellular provider and have used a few mobile phones so I believe I can make an educated Overall Rating.
I replaced an HTC 6800 because its browser really sucked. Granted since it was like 3 years old and since I flashed the phone I do not know if I could have updated the software. It could not link to the Sprint Network.!!!
Now to pick this phone apart calling Balls and Strikes:
Con: The Microsoft Word on it sucks beyond belief in my opinion. You can cut, copy, and paste with both but the Droid makes it all or nothing. The HTC 6800 could select a single word, sentence, or paragraphs. Being an analytical thinker I loved that on the 6800.
Awesome #1: It is very easy to use and has tons of gadgets. The 6800 was easy to use and had some but nothing like this.
Awesome #2: I love the Google Mapquest that is uses. It gives verbal driving directions so no need to look phone while driving. Set the locations, turn down the radio, and forget it. Now if you make a wrong rurn or want to use a different highway it will redirect you. Think using back roads to bypass traffic. The HTC 6800 did not.
Awesome #3: It has a way better Camera and Video Camera because it even gives you the option to use a wide screen in the picture settings.
Awesome #4: It has 7 separate desktops you can use and get to by sliding your finger left or right and on any one of them. The center one is your home desktop you see all the time or when booting up the phone like a pc. I use the pc analogy because it is one without a cd-rom.
Awesome #5: Another awesome thing sliding you fingers apart on the screen almost always enlarges every page or picture you want to. Only once in like 3 months it did not zoom the page.
Awesome #6: It let me download a New Update for the Mapquest Application. Think an update it like Windows does for its software & safety. Roads get changed & added all the time.
Awesome #7: If you have a wireless router at home you will understand this. The phone has one built in. On your second desktop to the right of your home desktop page it has your on an off switch. P.s. Do not get pist when it sucks your battery dead like a vampire does a body. If you leave it on when you do not need it, it is your own fault.
I hope these Pros and Cons can help you out a little.
