BlackBerry 8700C Review

Posted on: July 5th, 2006 by Anonymous

The good: Great for receiving emails wherever you areWell-designed calendarFunctional holsterThe bad: More cell-to-cell dropped callsSummary: This is a great device for professionals on the go that need access to email when away from the office. The filtering capability easily limits the type of email you wish to receive. Calendar, contacts and tasks compatible and syncs well with Outlook. I miss my Razr from a size point of view, but the added functionality of the Blackberry more than makes up for this.

Could it be I'm falling in love..??

Posted on: March 25th, 2006 by Rick P

The good: Stylish looking, light, great email push, can be used as a modem.The bad: Trying to figure out how to use Yahoo messenger..Summary: OK, OK, maybe I'm not falling in love, but I really do like my 8700c. I actually purchased the Cingular 8125 about 3 weeks ago. I heard all the hoopala and wanted to join in. The phone I "really" wanted was the Nokia 9300. But it has been pushed back, month after month. So I guess Nokia lost a customer. Now, as for the Blackberry 8700c, it has been all that I have really wanted. I was a bit unsure about the keys and their size, as I have large fingers. But to my plesant surprise, there was no problem. Just something you have to get used to. Oh, and as of a week ago, Cingular re-wrote the program for the Cingular Communication Manager. I think the new version is 5.2.1. Anyway, now you can use the 8700c as a modem. Simply go to the Cingular Web site (I would advise calling a data tech to walk you through the set up), download the latest version, and tada.., you're connected. As a matter of fact, I'm using it as a modem as I write this review. All in all, I think you'll be happy with the Blackberry 8700c. It's actually my first Blackberry, and like the other reviewer stated, I will probably only purchase Blackberrys from now on. For what it's worth, I actually gave up the 8125. :-)
