Blackberry is not all it's Cracked up to be

Posted on: December 7th, 2008 by David Lane

The good: Long battery lifeThe bad: Little awkward to hold. No real support. Media files are almost impossible to download. Bluetooth transfers from other media are impossible. Summary: If you like to add your own ringtones, forget it.If you like the ability to transfer your own music to your cell phone, but expect to find it or even consider listening to it, forget it. It is possible to store your music on your phone, but unless you are hooked up to a computer, listening to the device is impossible. I find the Blackberry 8800 a complete and total waste of time and money for people who enjoy personalizing their phones. It is absolutely impossible to make this phone personal. I have been absolutely frustrated by the lack of support or the difficulty of the desktop software. Even the forums are impossible to get answers from.

Best BB ever!

Posted on: March 29th, 2007 by Brad S

The good: Roller-wheel is amazing, size (so thin!), battery life.The bad: No camera.Summary: Interface is more customizable, but better laid out then in the past. If you have used a BB before it might take some time to find what you are looking for and how to use the buttons, but once you do you will love the interface. The roller wheel is a dream, I have used multiple smartphones and blackberry's and this is by far the best. I charge the thing once a week. No delay when trying to navigate through the device. Very customizable. And the media feature is a great addition.
