5 out of 5 eggsThe last of a dying breed

Pros: This is a great phone if you understand the needs it fills - texting, emailing, and making calls. I have my corporate and gmail accounts synched and it works perfectly. Typing is fast and easy with SureType (intelligent typing rather than multi-tap typing). I've limited my apps to Facebook (I'm not a big FB user), Twitter, ScoreMobile, and WeatherTrax. I've had this phone for over two years and refuse to upgrade. If you want a small and durable phone that slips in your pocket with a battery that will last over a day on a single charge...there's nothing better.

Cons: I would not recommend this phone for web browsing or heavy app usage. The camera is also pretty poor. The biggest downer for me is that the SureType is prone to certain mistakes and can be a pain to correct at times.

5 out of 5 eggsBlackBerry 8230

Pros: I love this phone. My old one was a little beat up, so I got this one as a replacement. I was very happy to find this phone because they no longer make it and it is hard to find.

Cons: We don't have Verizon in Canada, but I was able to swap out mother boards. Now I have a new phone with my old board. Which is nice because i didn't have to swap ESN numbers and all my old information was still on my old board.

1 out of 5 eggsdidn't workout

Pros: looks like it would be a nice phone

Cons: Sprint would not activate it. neither would Verizon really, by the previous review

Other Thoughts: wanted to use it on Sprint in place of a Palm phone that is acting up.
my fault, didn't do my research,just went by the blurb on newegg-"works on Sprint and Verizon"--lesson learned
i guess it could be cloned, but i didn't want to go that route

1 out of 5 eggsVerizon data issue

Pros: I'm trading up from a palm 755p and I love the roller ball the alternative keyboard. The phone looks and feel is great and has good voice reception, I'm getting the same number of bars as I do with my palm.

Cons: Everything was in the box except the car charger.
I'm unable to get any data. Verizon said the pin is a duplicate or assigned to another provider. They said because of the pin issue it'll not be allow to get data on their network.

Other Thoughts: Wondering if exchanging the phone will fix the problem?
