Good Solid Phone That Does The Basics
I bought this phone for my daughter to use for a few months so she could decide if she really wants to put money into getting a BlackBerry. I figured since she was in college, she may not like it. Actually, this phone helped her make up her mind, that she really does like BlackBerry. While the phone was "older" it still had plenty of life left in it. The keyboard and screen work great. She quickly found her way around and loves having access to more than just text messages. What surprised me about this phone - my daughter liked the more "business" way they organized her life. She felt like her friends "apps" were more for "fun" rather than getting organized. She wanted a phone that would help her get herself better organized and felt like this phone operated more like she "needed." There are some odd ways that Verizon and BlackBerry handle longer text messages. We will have to find out if Verizon and BlackBerry have fixed those issues with the new BlackBerry phones. Even after she switches over we are going to keep this phone handy for when my wife travels abroad. Surprisingly this has been a nice phone. Read full review

I have always wanted the Blackberry World Phone, The major downfall to this phone is I cant recieve Pic. messages from anybody without having to go to the VZPIX website, for a smartphone its not very smart. With having a new baby, alot of the daily pics my wife sends me it's a real hassle to have to go onto the internet to recieve a pic of my little girl. If I had to choose between this phone or a Blackberry curve or any other smartphone that accepts pic messages.. it would definately be the other phone. The other downfall is..I have my email linked to it and everypiece of mail I get including junkmail allerts me. So if you dont mind getting disturbed at night with email updates and junkmail this is the phone for you. I know there has to be a way to turn off those notifications but MY phone did not come with instructions,and this is my first blackberry. Read full review

Quick temporary fix
I purchased this phone when my other BlackBerry died. My contact was 3 weeks away from renewal and the phone company wouldn't budge and let me get a new phone a few weeks early without a major penalty, so I this phone was a great option because it allowed me to keep using my blackberry services and it shipped/arrived quickly. The only thing I didnt like was that there was a significant delay when typing and sending messages...sometimes i'd type a letter or word and it wouldnt appear on the screen for about 10-15seconds. Annoying, but it was better than going without a phone.

4 stars from 5
This phone prices was very reasonable with the services that we'll got by this phone. Does'nt satisfied with the Dual Band GSM Band but when i use the CDMA band i got more than i expected. This phone also can be used as a modem for your PC's as i do now when write this review. Keypad was good, but unfortunattely they has no camera. But overall i was satisfied with this phone.

The Business Professional's Cell Phone
The Blackberry 8830 has proven to be reliable, capable phone. My main concerns when considering a cell phone were the speed and ease at which e-mail could be sent and received, the clarity of conversation, battery life, and web browsing ability. All of the above is handled by the 8830 with ease. There is no camera, so don't expect to be able to take snap shots of nights on the town, or anything else. I wasn't looking for a camera in a phone when I went with the 8830, so the lack of one didn't matter. I'd like to have one, but wouldn't give up any degree of performance in regard to the main purposes for which a cell phone is used; all of which involve communication and not photo taking. There is an external storage card. I use that to store large documents, or other e-mail attachments. The desktop program allows you to load applications, music, or photos on to the device. However, finding comparable listening equipment was a challenge. The jack on the phone is smaller than the standard size for headphones or headsets. I think it's either 1.5mm, or 2.5mm, and standard is something like either 2.5mm or 3.5mm. Whatever the size is on the phone, it is too small to fit standard headphones, earpieces. You can find earpieces with microphones that are made with the smaller size jack, but they're harder to find, and generally not of the same quality. Adapters are available, but I've tried them without success. All together, I find that the phone has proven itself to be in the upper end in terms of function and durability. The phone has suffered many a minor impact, etc., and continues to work without issue. A risk with this phone is that it uses the trackball to navigate. The risk being that if the trackball becomes pushed too far back into the body of the phone, or debris become entangled within it, it can cease to operate. However, it's important to know that you can simply buy replacement trackballs for less than $10.00. If you take your phone to a dealer, they are likely to tell you it's broken and that you need a new one. Try to wash the existing trackball with a cloth and rubbing alcohol first. You may find that fixes the problem right there. If not, consider replacing the trackball. stewartandstewartlaw.com Read full review
