Bad: scroll always breaks
Comment: I absolutely hate this phone
Good: Well it was user friendly
Bad: Its completly broken in one year even though I looked after it
Comment: I believe the phone is made of inferior components.
Battery life has gone down from 6hours to 2hours in a year. Now if I take a video or even a picture it bombs out and turns off.
The track ball has stopped working...so I got messages on the phone that I can't read, can't make phone calls. There is no back up navigation keys so I can't do anything with it.
I thought about trying to get it fix it because I bought this phone cash thinking that If I looked after it...It would last. I paid R2400 which is about $300USD.
But I'm thinking that this phone can never be fixed...Its processors are probably aging and will draw more power and the phone will continue to bomb.
When these phones are advertised, surly we need to given better information. Like how does it perform in one year from purchase. What kind of problem will it pick up. How long does the battery last...I see it says battery life Good? 6hours is not good that's incorrect advertising.
2hour battery life is so bad I might as well be walking around with a back up battery that's the size of a brick
Good: everone has, one would be a better phone than my samsong tocko light
Bad: bad feedback , expensive for me,breaks
Comment: i want one cause it looks really good im getting one by looking at this feed back im not shore if i want one now :/
Good: BlackBerry messenger facebook twitter 3g
Bad: memory slow freezes
Comment: so far I have had to send three of these phones of to repair with it freezing trackpad not working and charging problems also the battery life is rubbish would not reccomend this phone at all.
Good: Social Networking, Media, BBM
Bad: Everything else (Camera, Internet, SPEED, Internal memory
Comment: I've had this phone since last august. Now, before anyone wants to buy it, take this into account. This phone is uber slow. When I turn it on, it's slow, when I'm talking to my mates on BBM, it's slow, the camera is ridiculous, no flash, the internet's slow at the best of times... The memory is stupid. I have 3 apps. Facebook, Twitter and Whatsapp, because if I download anymore, it freezes and is slower than anything I've ever seen before. Even with all my media on my SD card, the phone is still really slow. And I'm a really fast person, I can't stand it. So don't get this phone, get one of the torches or bolds, just not this or the 8520 curve.
Good: Blackberry messenger, Facebook and 3g.
Bad: Very water soluble and bad build quality.
Comment: So far in less than a year i've had 3 curves because they all broke either beause the keypad or trakpad breaks or moisture got in.
Good: music buttons,notification indicator, qwerty keyboard
Bad: trackpad, battery life, lack of apps, alarm,
Comment: bad phone. sent it off to repair 3 times in 3 months... only had the phone for technically 2weeks. the trackpad is really bad, if it gets wet, it becomes faulty, if your hands are oily, it becomes faulty, if you drop it accidently, it becomes fault.
Battery life sucks too, only lasts a day! (i use internet quite a lot and texting)
would not recommend.
Good: its an easy set up, you dont really need to use the instructions. the icons are big and its easy to use. also, blackberry messenger is good!
Bad: after a few hours it can become quite slow. you have to take the battery out and put it back in, this takes a few minutes to load. occasionally, the camera has broke(again, take the battery out!) the battery runs out very quickly! also, my phone charger has broke -_-
Comment: its a really good phone, but can sometimes be a bit slow, and takes a long time to re-load. the camera isnt very good quality but is decent enough. its easy to use, but the battery drains fast. for people who want a good, fast, quality phone, i wouldnt recommed this to them.
Good: the thing that is good about it is its got a ball whitch is like a mouse and its got good features and if u are calling someone and u say where is that person it will teel u
Bad: there is nothing bad about it
Comment: its a good phone ive just got in so if u want to get a blackberry curve theg 9300
