Please read the product description carefully for all unlocked cell phones.

Some unlocked cell phones sold by Newegg may have previously been locked to a specific carrier. A carrier-locked cell phone may often have carrier-specific applications and branding. Some of these applications cannot be unlocked and/or may not function with a different carrier. Also, applications requiring a data plan may result in data usage charges from the original carrier.

In addition, the cell phone box may arrive unsealed and the cell phone may appear previously handled. The unlocking procedure requires unsealing the box and manually handling the cell phone. In this case, the cell phone should not be considered “tampered with” or “defective”.

1 out of 5 eggsDo Not Buy

Pros: It is a good paperweight.

Cons: This is not a new phone - it is refurbished.

It is full of a previous customer's data.

It is locked to Verizon so I can not use it on T-mobile.

The customer support just takes you to a voicemail box - and no one returns your calls.

$180 down the drain - this reflects badly on NewEgg - I trusted their brand, and that was a mistake.


Other Thoughts: Do not buy.

3 out of 5 eggsThis is a Verizon branded phone...

Pros: Its a Blackberry

Cons: No where does it mention that this is a Verizon branded phone. The title says OEM which makes you think this is straight from RIM. Instead you get phone that has been unlocked by a third party. This phone was for someone else, so all I did was order it. I didn't do my usual research or else I would not have bought it. I am surprised that Newegg would be deceptive like this.

I cant find the Browser anywhere on this thing, even though it says that it is installed in the applications list. Anyone using the phone with Tmobile know how to set up email, restore the browser and use the navigation?

Pros: Blackberry Storm

Cons: The Blackberry site clearly states that the BlackBerry Storm 9530 does not have WiFi. Some vendors no longer care what they sell or claim.

1 out of 5 eggsblack berry junk refurbished

Pros: got the phone on time

Cons: phone box was open, phone had text messages and missed calls on it, phone also has issues not charging and unresponsive to my touch as menu button does not do what it used to do. now i got to return a phone, and be without a phone how long??? they must have not checked it before they shipped it or some one did not care.

Other Thoughts: if had i knew that the phone was refurbished i would not have bought it. but was listed in the new unlocked phones so i thought maybe new egg had it unlocked before i got it . i read up on the internet that it was a world phone so it is already unlocked .

2 out of 5 eggsBuyer Beware

Pros: Phone seems good, first touch screen phone so its taking getting use to. Using on the AT&T network. Seems to always have good signal. Call quality is good, gorgeous design.

Cons: NewEgg doesn't know what they sell. Phone was not unlocked. Spend hours initial trying to set it up. Finally looked to see if it was still locked or not and it certainly was. Had to spend another $20 to buy an unlock code. Contacted NewEgg about the aggrivation, said they would give me $20 off my next order. But who knows when my next order will be or if I will will even see that discount. My last 2 experiences with NewEgg have been horrific to say the least. They may have decent prices but not work the aggrivation.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat product but...

Pros: The phone is what you would expect from a blackberry

Cons: When I received this phone, I noticed the phone was still LOCKED!! After speaking to customer service, I was told that no refunds would be given and after checking their records, the phone is unlocked. So, I ended up having to purchase an unlock code. It was only $20 but the headache was not worth it.

Other Thoughts: This is my first issue with the company. Because this was a high dollar item, I was a bit dissappointed because of what I expected and what I received. All in all, I still love this site and will continue to do business here.

4 out of 5 eggsBlackBerry Storm

Pros: Pretty good and offers a decent means of staying in touch with people and other important info. It's very user friendly and fairly easy to setup.
When running on 2G networks, the internet and downloading of images isn't the best, but still good. The quality of pictures taken with the 3.2 MP camera are pretty good. Time taken to take a photo is a bit slow but it works.

Cons: Misspelling is an issue, but this is attributable to the keyboard's lack of space between the keys, however over time you will get used to it.

Other Thoughts: I have recommended this this phone to my friends. It is a cool device.
