Blackberry 8530

Going from an Android phone to Blackberry is like stepping into the dinosaur world. The technology just is not there for me. The phone is okay--but the system hasnt changed at all, and I feel like it is difficult to navigate the phone. The keys are very small and the screen is poor quality. I am just not a Blackberry fan. I think this phone may be okay for strictly business, but do not feel the phone is exciting or easy to use.

Just was the wrong Product to Buy.

No, I would not recommend this product.

Well the Product is in a good shape, eventought it is been used before. The problem now is that I cannot use it because it doesn't have a SIM slot, and thus can only be used in the U.S.A, so I might sell it again or just give it to some friend in the States.
I think this should emphasized whenever such a Product is been sold to someone out of the usage Area. This Blackberry Model only works with the CDSPA Network System.
Thanks.

Great replacement phone!

No, I would not recommend this product.

This is the perfect replacement phone, cost 20$ because its just cheap plastic in a horrible mobile OS. If you break your normal phone like an iphone this is the perfect phone to use until yours gets fixed. It does the job, sends text, recieves emails, and thats about it, because any other app if your planning on using them suck on the blackberry.

Blackberry Curve 8530

I brought the blackberry curve 8530 a few weeks ago. The listing said that the battery had recently been replaced but the phone doesn't have great battery life. The mouse pad button that is key to doing anything is pushed in and when u shake the phone it sounds like something is rattling. It does work but i'm afraid that it will not last because it was damaged. Also the phone has ALOT of wear and tear on it, if i would of know how used it was I wouldn't of bid on it. However it does seem to be working I just don't think it will last unfortunately. The listing left alot to be desired and shouldn't have been more detailed.

Subpar Blackberry.. not worth a data plan

Poor screen resolution.. good for a backup but not an everyday phone.. sorry Rim.. Blackberry is behind the times when it comes to technology. I remember my old 8330 being better than this.. Well I will be off to an iPhone one day..
