Good: i no longer own it and it makes lovely colours in a fire
Bad: nothing anymore
Comment: goooodbye blackberry
Good: efficient email access ang qwerty keyboard
Bad: everything else!
Comment: This is the 3rd Blackberry i have owned. It gives as much trouble as my previous one(curve 9300)
It jams up all the time, restarts itself, cant decide what the battery level is(full one moment, empty the next and vise versa)
Before i got the 9300 , i had a Bold 9000 , besides the faulty trackball, it was nice and reliable, very few issues.
My experience with the 9300 and 9320 has been one of constant frustration. 99% of people i know who have a Blackberry feel the same way i do.
as soon as my cell phone contract ends,im moving to a better brand.
Goodbye Blackberry, and hello Samsung Galaxy( ill quite happily swop a qwerty keyboard for reliability)
Good: Alright, good design and good bbm
Bad: Creaky backplate, never has signal, no good apps, bad camera, will not last a year turns it self off all the time
Comment: Never has signal and blackberry say there is nothing wrong with it and turns it self off all the time do not buy it because its not worth the waste of time sent it to blackberry 3 times now and they have done nothing!
Good: Cheap - good for email
Bad: Almost everything
Comment: I have had this phone for 6 months and it has died. It has not be abused in any way - no 3rd party apps, in fact no apps other than factory installed. I have tried everything to kick some life into this handset and nothing. While on charger, just get black screen, red light comes on for 20 seconds and then goes out again - will not switch on.
This in the second blackberry I have owned and exactly the same thing happened with my blackberry torch after about 11 months of ownership. No more blackberrys for me.
Good: Camera is usable, fairly durable, good for social networking, looks quite good (I have it in white) And the keyboard is good.
Bad: Freezes a lot, screen is small, not great for browsing the internet.
Comment: I have the Curve 9320 in white, and it does look good, it came with a memory card and I have 60 songs and 400 photos, and it's about half full. I like the BBM dedicated button and the LED light is cute:D I would recommend it for a first time BB buyer, but it does need to be looked after or it won't last. Mine freezes fairly often, but other than that I have no problem with it. As said in the review, the back does come off fairly easily, and whenever the battery is removed the whole system reboots, which can be irritating/
Good: Ease of use. Long battery life, Camera comes with a flash unlike any other blackberry curve phones!
Bad: 3.2 camera, creeky back, buttons arre quite loud. ( not that loud but you can hear the licky noise )
Comment: Very good smartphone inndeed, trustable, good battery life, great for bbm and social feeds/emails, but app store, Camera and screen resolution could be a bit better....... :) nut all in one brilliant phone!
Good: For the money ( £99.00 delivered from o2 ) everything is simply great !
Bad: For what they cost now then nothing at all .
Comment: Hi all ! Ever wondered which phone to go for without spending a small fortune and ending up with something that is the size of a brick or that`s as much use as a canoe with a a handbrake? Well try this Blackberry Curve 9320 because for simple texting ,a great fast email system , good YES good battery life 1450mah battery which for a phone this size is very good indeed ( approx 2 days depending on use maybe more ) good loud speaker ( faces out through the bottom of the phone and not the back ) notification led for emails,text etc ,custom ring / notification tones for each contact,email,text etc , avarage/good camera 3.2meg with flash , fits great in the pocket and is simply a good all round phone to use without needing a flippin degree in science on how to use it lol !We`ve gone through so many mobile phones testing etc etc but the curve 9320 is one of the best value for money phones to date ( just £99.00 on o2 P.A.Y.G. sim and that price is just £99.00 only so no vat , no delivery charge and no top up sim to buy either !o2 website ) Hope this review has been helpfull and thanks for reading it from all @ MaxsoundCarAudio Uk

Good: it's cheap
Bad: pretty much everything
Comment: I've stuck with Nokias most of my life as they have lasted for an eternity and I've found them extremely reliable. I could produce to you at least 3 handsets from my desk draw which have still been fully functioning when it has been time for me to upgrade.
For my last upgrade, against my better judgement I went with the Blackberry 9320 in an attempt to jump on the whole smartphone bandwagon. I was promised it would be an easy transition from my old 6303 classic due to it being and 'entry level device'. I was looking forward to using the organiser/calender features as I was starting a new job and didn't want to cart my chunky filofax everywhere with me.
The first few weeks I got really into the swing of using it, but after around a fortnight it started having problems. The apps seemed to take forever to load, and the phone book and calender would frequently freeze and subsequently cause the phone to crash. This was a nightmare in particular due to the horrendous amount of time it would then take to switch the phone back on.
After another fortnight the phone began playing up everytime I plugged it into charge using the USB cable provided. Thinking it was something wrong with the cable and not the phone, I bought a mains charger, but the phone would still not charge properly. When you plugged it in, it would beginning charging only for a few seconds before ceasing. Eventually it wouldn't charge at all. After googling the problem I found this wasn't an uncommon issue, and the fault appeared to be in fact with the charger port itself on the device.
My service provider sent it to be repaired, but they were unable to fix it and provided me with a new one, (here, I have to say, Blackberry Protect did come in handy as it had backed up all my contacts/messages/calender and I could just download it onto the new phone.) However, after a matter of weeks I began having exactly the same problems with the new phone. A completely different unit to the original phone and this would not charge either.
On top of this, the camera is awful quality, the screen is poor resolution and their are limited apps available in the 'App World'. There is also a limited amount you can do to personalise the homescreen.
I have since had the phone replaced with a Lumia by my contract provider due to all the problems, which is far, FAR better.
For the love of pete, don't get this shoddy, shoddy phone.
Good: If I didn't want a keyboard would I read this review ???????????
Comment: These reviews are so stupid it makes me laugh.
A review of a qwerty phone should be compared to another qwerty phone.
I we wanted touch screen battery eating phones we'd read reviews on them ?
