Good: simple to use, decent camera
Bad: Alot of things. Keypad is fiddly, the phone is too simple and you will get bored of it after 2 weeks,
Comment: The phone is a blackberry- Says alot in itself. Very dated software and it is not a fun phone to have. I enjoyed it for about 2 weeks but a young person like myself would like to venture into more advanced technologies
Comment: like dis
Good: Alphanumeric keyboard. Tiny size - fits easily in a pocket. Good sound for music. Acceptable camera..
Bad: No FM radio
Comment: I'm not looking for a phone that will replicate my PC. I want to make calls, check my mails, and have music on the move. An acceptable emergency camera is a bonus but I'm not looking for a phone that replaces my "real" camera. I love it. An FM radio would make it perfect.
Good: small ,neat ,key board lay out quite good.good camera,screen easy to read good alarm system .
Bad: does not hold the signal strength as well as ,say a nokia 6500 slide or even a sony ericcson phone ,the uma goes on and off frequently,distortion and frequent call failures
Comment: i get the impression that they have not ironed all the "bugs " out of it ,i really wish that i had not bought the phone .
Good: good feature phone
Bad: for over 100 bloody pounds
Comment: most phones today are cool because they have a qwerty keyboard and/or
a touchscreen. the pearl has neither. at over 100 bloody pounds you expect a phone with either of the above
Bad: Bad build quality
Comment: The port for the charger receded into the body of the phone, and apparently that is standard manufacturer. You can buy the phone but charging it will prove to be a problem.
Best to avoid this mobile altogether.
Bad: the port for the charger receded into the body of the phone, and apparently it is not a manufacturers fault. You can buy the phone but beware of charging it!
Comment: Bad charging port! Beware!
Good: t9 alphanumeric keypad`
Bad: could have a bigger screen and even longer battery life
Comment: This is what nokia should be making.
Blackberry have seen the gap in the market for users who want a standard phone.
The reviewer needs to get over the thinking everyone wants a qwerty or touch screen phone. Many of us don't...!
I want a phone for making calls with a long battery life.
Not a mobile pocket pc.!!!!
Well done Blackberry.
