Serial BlackBerry User...My Favorite of All
I have had 5 other BlackBerry's from the 7230 to the BlackBerry Storm. I love the flip the most. The size and flip action are great because I like to carry the phone in my pocket. (No more butt-dialing) The Pearl track ball is superior to the BlackBerry touchscreen and the little black square, whatever that is, on the latest BlackBerry Curve (Which I have also used). I also like the fact that I don't have to do a soft reset 3 times a day (only once a week if that), like I had to do with the Storm. Even though the Flip is a discontinued phone, I really like using it the most of all the BlackBerry's I have had. Pros: Small Size, Clamshell design, track ball, far more reliable Cons: No GPS, low Megapixel camera, smaller screen, Not full qwerty keyboard (but easy to get used to, better software than the old BlackBerry Pearl) Read full review

RIM BlackBerry Pearl 8100
I bought this phone because my friend has one and loves it. So when my phone broke down in the middle of my contract I decided to get one off ebay. It's a great buy! The phone is the perfect size and weight. it's nice and light and fits in my pocket without being too bulky. I love the conversation style text messaging and the trackball navigation. it's much more responsive than the touch screen navigation on the new blackberrys if you ask me. Easy to use. Highly recommended!

a hip blackberry
The fact that this blackberry is a flip make it hip.Its easy to use, have most of the features others blackberry phones do (web browser, camera...). But it doesn't have that qwerty keyboard blackberry is known for so it might be a little difficult with this than other blackberry phones.

RIM BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8220-DO NOT BUY
For the age of smart phones, this one has only one positive side: it flips and positively ends the call hiding buttons on the inside of the shell; display is bright and crisp for numbers and letters. As it comes to the performance: dialing is a bear, it takes a loooong time to find your contact especially if you sync with outlook-it creates multiple entries, display does not show the person’s number until contact is chosen, Wi-Fi is restricted to blackberry paid service use (unlike HTC where you can browse internet on your home Wi-Fi without extra charges). My prior phone was HTC Dash and I feel blackberry 8220 is a huge step down for me in performance, speed of use, available features and overall usability. I would not recommend buying this devise.

Blackberry Pearl Flip 8220 (T-Mobile)
I have owned the Blackberry Pearl flip in the past and have always had some kind of reception problem or problems with the RIM wireless software. As a messaging phone, it is the greatest! But because of the poor, and rather tiny screen, web browsing is quite a pain. As far as smart phones go, I would not recommend people to pay for a data plan, for this phone, if the only thing you can do is send and receive email. Also connecting to wireless networks, then getting the browser to use that connection is a real pain. Blackberry needs to overhaul their RIM software and make a phone with a larger screen to make web browsing more enjoyable too. The pearl Flip makes O.K. phone calls, but makes for a very poor smart phone. At least for the money you need to invest for a data plan.
