easy to use phone, very affordable.
The RIM BlackBerry Curve 3G 9330 comes with BlackBerry OS 5 but RIM and Verizon have promised that it will be upgradable to BlackBerry OS 6. The new OS promises quite a number of improvements like a revamped home screen, universal search, easier access to messaging, a new Webkit browser, and more.
The Curve 3G 9330 has the usual phone features like voice dialing, conference calling, speed dialing, a speakerphone, vibrate mode, and of course text and multimedia messaging. Instant-messaging options include BlackBerry Messenger, AIM, ICQ, Yahoo, and Windows Live. Continuing the RIM legacy of strong e-mail features, the Curve 3G 9330 can sync with your company's BlackBerry Enterprise server in addition to other e-mail systems like Microsoft Exchange, IBM Lotus Domino, and your own POP3 or IMAP accounts.
Other features include GPS/A-GPS with VZ Navigator support, EV-DO Rev., Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g), and stereo Bluetooth. You can use the GPS with other location-based apps and for geotagging photos. Mobile professionals will appreciate the calendar, a memo pad, document viewers for Microsoft Office, Corel WordPerfect, PDF documents, and more. The phone has 512MB of flash memory, and there's also a MicroSD card slot that can accept up to 16GB cards.
MY FIRST BLACKBERRY~
a friend of mine purchased this phone and I had to have one~
thanks to back up assistant I had it ready to go in about 30 minutes~
DOES NOT COME WITH MEDIA CARD~ YOU HAVE TO BUY ONE BEFORE THE VIDEO WORKS ON THIS PHONE~ I GOT MINE ON EBAY FOR $9.95 INCLUDING SHIPPING~
what it does....IT DOES VERY well~ phones are excellent~
take an excellent photo~A ZOOM FEATURE AT THE TOUCH OF THE SCROLL ~ GREAT~
keep up on up to 10 email accounts CAN BE ADDED so you can keep in touch.
button scroll is easy to use.
do not like the color? ah~ ebay has plenty of reasonable priced hard rubber snap on covers for it~
I just added my first bluebooth ear set for it~ the SET up was easy.
on line support via blackberry.com is first rate~ saves reading that boring hard to see little crappy instuction book that come with it.
an application feature including for everyone and everything they want.
can update FACEBOOK and other social networks at the touch of a button~
only two things I can say about it that are minor negative items.
Battery life is short so recharge daily. but then it has so many features I should say I helped drain it~ LOL
symbols button is hard to use~ minor but I will mention that.
first rate and I am 100% thrilled with my first blackberry~ with my new RED snap on case~ I purchased on ebay~
I GIVE THIS BLACKBERRY 5 STARS FOR A FIRST TIME BUYER /USER~ FOR A GREAT PHONE AT REASONABLE PRICE~ AND EXCELLENT EASE OF USE~
I switched from a Samsung Moment (don't EVER buy one of those) and the ease of use, size, features and battery life were well worth it. I prefer hard buttons over the touch screen, so it was a good switch. The battery life is excellent, and the software is easy to navigate. The only con I have is the texting, because of the smaller buttons. But ease should come with practice.
Purchased two of these from two wonderful sellers on eBay about a year ago. The current price is literally unbeatable! As an individual who gets easily distracted by the hundreds of apps on iOS and Android devices, I can only work efficiently on my 9330. The keyboard shortcuts are amazing, you can access all your important apps with one key press from home screen. The phone syncs seamlessly with Microsoft Outlook. All my notes, calendar events, and contacts are easily accessible from both PC and phone. No need to send them to remote servers and then try to pull them through wireless sync afterwards. The phone is light and compact, very easy to carry around. I prefer Curve over Bold because I have smaller hands.
Verizon's unlimited prepaid plan costs less than $50 with free BIS. It goes with the phone perfectly. Page Plus is a better choice if you don't need BIS functionality. Their prepaid plans are as low as $12.99 a month.
Bottom line, if you are budget-conscious, or if you simply want a productivity beast of a phone that would help you focus on your work, this would be a great choice!
Great phone, easy interface. The product isn't exactly durable, but it does serves it's purpose. Many features of the phone, including BBM, Sprint Navigation and SprintTV really add to the overall value of the phone. The keypad is simple and easy to use.
i bought this phone because to keep in touch with my family and friends.
i hate the fact that when i'm trying to download music at times it wont let me.
i cant compare it, because it's the best!!!!!!!!!!!!
I just recently upgraded my phone from the Blackberry curve 8330 to the curve 9330.
The pros: The price was very reasonable as compared to the 8330. The 9330 is a much lighter & thinner phone, better navigation through apps with the touch trackpad, the touch trackpad performs better than the trackball (trackball would stick sometimes while using it) & faster speed while using the web browser. I like how the apps can be organized in different catagories (favorites, media & downloads). I've only listed a few since I'm still finding out new things about the phone.
Con: the only bad thing that I found is the battery life. Obviously, you can't spend the entire day surfing the web & using the GPS, as it will drain the battery completely. To save on battery life, close out all websites and the GPS app.
Overall I like the phone. I hope this review will help someone who's deciding to get the 9330. Good luck!
I bought this product because of the characteristics, and what I really like most of this product is the applications I could download, however there's a thing I don't like very much and it's the battery life time, one has to use an aplication so as have a longer period of time using the battery. This product is FANTASTIC I would it rocomend for someone who wants to keep in touch with friends and family all the time thanks to all features this smartphone has. In little words this mobile phone is as good as an andorid or iphone.
Blackberry OS 6 is everything I've ever wanted in a smartphone. The phone handles texts, email, and calls with ease. Battery life is good and phone itself can be customized to your every want and need.
This is a wonderful phone specially for a office work. It keeps you updated at all times, you can link social networks to you phone. Small and easy to carry, great volume on music player.
