Blackberry Bold Black 3G Unlocked GSM Smart Phone with Wi-Fi & GPS (9700)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

1 out of 5 eggs Overpaid and regretting 08/18/2010

This review is from: Blackberry Bold Black 3G Unlocked GSM Smart Phone with Wi-Fi & GPS (9700)

Pros: With all refurb products, you need good luck, this is a great smart phone, but if I knew. I would have just spent an extra $80 and get a new one elsewhere. Remember no refunds for this refurb product at Newegg, so potential buyers you have been warned.

Cons: Found out the "K" key wasn't working, I had to pay for shipping to get fixed with warranty company in US then when they sent it back to Canada. I was charged an additional $50 in brokerage fees. Overall, it cost me more to buy a refurb then to buy a new one.

Other Thoughts: I bought this on Newegg Canada and the repair company is in the US. Even though RIM (a Waterloo based Canadian Company) makes the Blackberry. How ridiculous is that?

Samsung Star Black/Gold Unlocked GSM Touch Screen Phone with 3.2MP Camera/ 10 Hours Talk Time/ Bluetooth (S5230)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: - unique (not alot of people have this model in Canada)
- Fairly new design (released sometime in July '09 )
- very easy to startup and use
- compact
- light weight
- unlocked
- touch screen - I tried to type with my big stubby fingers and it is really accurate (calibration done)
- games are java based.
- bluetooth
- mp3 player
- 3.2 Megpixel camera
- and others (see specs)

Cons: - hard to attach stylus
- stylus is hard to open
- hard to find a silicon case for it.
- No Wifi- but wife won't really use it anyways
- the back panel for the battery and sim card was pretty tough to open the first time and for my stubby fingers (my baby finger was as thick as the phone)

Other Thoughts: - This phone is a simple and sleek, yet it functionality is of great value considering the price.
- I read other reviews that people in another language, but, my wife's came in English
-Would NOT Reccommend this if you are: a high tech / tech savy person (Programming in Java on your phone), require WiFi all the time and be able and willing to setup the WiFi up all the time, or do alot of texting.

- I would recommend this phone if you are not willing to pay too much for a UNLOCKED touchscreen phone, looking for great value for specific features, convenience, being unique, travel abroad where SIM cards are used, and great styling...

Finally, If you have BIG FINGERS with no fingernails.. You may want to re-consider.
