You do not need to sell your soul (buy an iphone)
Personally, I believe tactile interfaces are a waste of battery. I might succumb to their allure someday, but for now I prefer to keep my fingers of the screen and my charger tucked away for about a week at a time. That said.<br><br>I will skip the list of features, since you can find them anywhere and stick to some more nuanced impressions. Buy this product unlocked. I have used it with both a Cigular simcard and an Orange simcard. Absolutely no problems. There are some features like GPS and push email that will not work unless one subscribes to a data plan. As a student I don't produce that kind of income, so I do not use those services. One can use Pandora with the WiFi though. The Wifi support is great, but be aware that if your network requires some kind of application for access on your regular PC (like CleanAccess) then you will have to ask the network administrators to allow your phone to bypass the security when using the internet.<br><br>The battery life is completely dependent on usage. It will last about 2 days for some heavy duty usage. About 3 days for regular usage and about 4 days for light usage. Be advised that the yellow (low) and red (drained) battery notices last a long time, so don't fret the moment the indicator turns yellow.<br><br>I have the Blackberry synced with Outlook which is synced with Gmail Calendars. So the device is a great portable agenda. It can sync via Bluetooth or the data cable. I have issues sending files from my computer to the device, however I believe this is more of a personal problem with vista and my Bluetooth module (I own a Dell M1330, amazing machine, different story), however, I can stream music from the device to my computer via bluetooth. Call quality is excellent, user interface is easy to understand and everything has options to be tweaked.<br><br>Use the Desktop software provided with the device, it is useful and may be the best way to sync with Outlook or a couple of other supported applications. There are now fifty trillion applications for Blackberry, but most of the ones available have a purpose. It is also great to be able to increase memory with the Micro SD card reader. Unfortunately applications are saved to the on board memory, which is not trivial, but it is fixed.<br><br>Once again, buy this product unlocked. This model has a Simcard slot (some Blackberry's do not) meant for "business travel abroad", but once unlocked you can use it with any carrier in the US or Europe (I can attest to these two). I would buy it again. Ebay is your friend, as are unlocked products.Read full review

A Smartphone That Would Fit For Everyone
i bought the device (Blackberry Curve 8900) on june 2009 and was so excited, the first time i opened the box. love the way they designed the smartphone, it's beyond my expectation. it has a super clear 3.2 MP camera, wi-fi support, built-in gps, enhanced media player, video recording, blackberry maps, wireless email, organizer, browser, sms/mms. not to mention easy to use trackball, qwerty keyboard and friendly navigation menu. It is so light in weight and sleek which makes it easy to carry anywhere. overall, i'm very satisfied with it. why look for something else, if you could have it all on Blackberry Curve 8900.

Not an unlocked phone!!!!
What I dislike about this item is that it said that it was unlocked but I tried it on two different cell companies and it did not work. So I had to sell it and buy another phone. It looked exactly like the picture, But I wished that it would have worked. I bought it because my daughter wanted a BB.
