I will never buy a blackberry ever again

Posted on: October 22nd, 2010 by anna yopp

The good: music player works nicely, track ball is smoothThe bad: blackberry customer service is awful, scratches easy, breaks easy, freezes easy, phone volume is not good, t9 word choice is strange (it doesnt adapt to how you type), no way to change message ringtone, sometimes changes phone ringer on its own and the time, battery life sucks, i have never had this phone last close to a whole year.Summary: I bought this phone about a year and 6 months ago and it is the worst phone ive ever had. Ive had to replace it twice already which took me about a week o do because the blackberry ppl wouldn't just replace the thing. i was even willing to pay any fees and they still tried to avoid it. i once spent about over 6 hours on the phone tryin to get them to realize that the programming on it was screwed up and they were trying to tell me i dropped it. which i never did they didnt even have the phone so how would they know. it tends to do things on its own with out you doing anything, its constantly freezing and dying and i can never hear anyone when im on it. the battery dies fast so charge often and thats with out bluetooth on. for me set up was easy and fast to get used to but after you set it up it will randomly change things you did on its own. recently i cant even send or receive anything from messages to calls. its just there to hold numbers

BlackBerry Flip 8220

Posted on: October 8th, 2008 by Egan Fo

The good: Much easier to type vs. the previous Pearl models and light years faster than a touch screen. The web navigation is improved as well vs. the other Pearl models. Not likely you'll accidentally call anyone or answer unsolicited calls. I'm overall very happy in my first week of usage.The bad: I wish I could delete incoming emails without opening the phone. I had some issues getting the Enterprise Activation working properly, but I think that was more of an issue with my company's IT staff. Summary: I previously had an 8100 and I had fond feelings for the little phone. I was hesitant about the switch, but have to say I'm really liking it. The improved software makes instant messaging simple.
