My unhealthy Blackberry Addiction Review with images

AdvantagesProfessional, Fashionable, Sexy

Disadvantagescamera, price

"...Mariana, and I am a blackberry addict. Having put this out there, I feel I must explain myself. I have always been much of a phone enthusiast, but for high tech features and rather for their beauty. With the in mind, I have always fallen in love with the wrong types. I have written a short review on the not so delightful Prada LG model which was a beautiful headache. I have previously bought the likes of the Chocolate LG, the Razr, the V60i... and ..."

Blackberry is everything

AdvantagesMultitasking, GPS, large screen, Qwerty keyboard

DisadvantagesNot many, except keyboard locking and holster use.

"In a nutshell, Blackberry phones seemed to be on the expensive end of the market and many people who have them seemed to be pleased. So I decided to check it out. The first thing you notice is the complication and a different style of use. This takes time to get used to. The roller-ball is a cross between a pointer mouse and the stylus system on other PDAs. And yes if you previously own a Windows based PDA, you will probably be looking for a stylus ..." Read review

A lifestyle: Blackberry Curve 8300

AdvantagesBBM, Push e-mails, Beautiful interface, Easy customisation, Enhanced video media player, QWERTY keyboard

DisadvantagesGPRS internet connection, as opposed to 3G or Wi-Fi

"Not only is the Blackberry Curve 8300 smartphone from RIM both the smallest and lightest Blacberry smartphone, it is also one of the best designs RIM has produced. Although the phone is only slightly smaller than earlier models, it is far more compact and supposedly 20% lighter, which really makes a difference either in your bag or pocket, enabling it easier to carry it around with you throughout the day. The colour display is truly impressive, ..." Read review

Own one of these and there is no going back

Advantageshigh quality calls,internet/email access,looks great,easy to use

Disadvantagesexpencive,but there are some remarkable deals out there

"...its a piece of cake. Blackberry have a free 1 hour course online which quickly teaches you almost all the phones functions and is a must for new users. Internet access comes from the blackberry server and is quick and clear,setting up a blackberry email address takes just a moment. The real bonus is being able to access and send from your old existing email accounts, I linked my AOL account to the phone in seconds and now recieve all my emails on ..." Read review

A great Curvey number!

AdvantagesEmail push, landscape screen, tons of features, QWERTY keyboard + + +

DisadvantagesNone really, keys a bit small if you have large hands.

"...time. I enjoyed reviewing the the BlackBerry Curve 8300. It can best be described as a powerful, highly capable business and leisure device with user friendly functions and features. Serious enough for business use but fun enough for personal use. Specs are below: Screen High resolution 65k colour screen (320 x 240 Pixels). Imaging 2 Megapixel Camera with flash, video player and recorder. Messaging SMS (Text messaging), MMS (Multimedia ..." Read review

Blackberry Curve

Advantagesfantastic phone in general! all round.

Disadvantagestrackball can get stuff stuck in it. no video camera

"Lovely phone. I had a Blackberry Curve before moving onto the Blackberry Storm, you can see my review for Blackberry Storm in my reviews. I had this phoone for over a year I really loved it and the only reason I changed it was because like anyone I wanted the next best thing. The phone looks and feels great it truly feels like a Blackberry is is wide and smooth. The camera was reasonably good and at the time I think it was one of the best cameras, ..." Read review

Blackberry Curve 8900 - A girls best friend!

AdvantagesEasy to use, lots of features, quick internet browsing on the go,

Disadvantagesbattery life isn't that long

"I have recently got the Blackberry Curve 8900 and I love it. It's the best phone I've ever had. I have it on a contract with Orange and it costs me £35 per month for 600 minutes and unlimited texts (which is good as I'm a constant texter!) - I also opted to pay an extra £5 a month for internet access on my phone, which is a must-have with a blackberry to really use all it's features. I love the full QUERTY keypad, it makes texting so quick and easy, ..." Read review

Blackberry 8300 Curve

AdvantagesSlim design, good sound quality

DisadvantagesHands free kit not the best

"This is the second Blackberry device I own, and compared to the previous one it is more reliable and has some extra features such as Maps, a Camera, and a middle tracker rather than the side scroller. I compared this to the Pearl, and the QWERTY keyboard was much easier to use, and are not too sensitive. Also, there is now a new key which allows you to write in capital letters. The screen is very clear and detailed, and the sound quality, even ..." Read review

Blackberry Curve - 5/5

Advantageslightweight, customisable, multiple applications, camera, many more.

Disadvantagesconfusing and complicated at first

"The blackberry curve is a sleek and lightweight business device. The large screen, simple menu and qwerty keyboard make using the curve a delight. At first the curve takes a bit of time and patience to get used to, but after a few days you will be fully complacent with its workings. The curve is an excellent device which can be customised to the users needs. The curve comes packed with useful applications and even one very addictive game. The camera ..." Read review

BlackBerry Curve 8300

AdvantagesGreat al rounder, very easy to use and looks fantastic

DisadvantagesNo Video capture and poor internet service

"...any of its predecessors, the Blackberry curve 8300 is not just aimed at the business market. With more multimedia aspects such as a 2megapixel camera, media player and games it is a fantastic all rounder. All aspects of this phone have been dramtically improved. As well as the phone looking fantastic, it is incredibly easy to use as the re-designed qwerty keyboard is better then ever. The phones ergonomics are incredible and i am a big fan of the ..."

AdvantagesBlackBerry, trackball navigation system,

Disadvantagesrecharging takes a lot of time.

"Well Blackberry is a hardcore buisness phones. And the contendor. I have used Blackberry curve 8330 for a week as my friend bought it. BlackBerry is used to make sentinels. And this cellphone is the smallest, lightest full QWERTY BlackBerry handset. Some of us don't like complications so we still have to get used to it coz it has a lots of different features. It is something that can blend in.It comes loaded with an intuitive trackball navigation ..." Read review

Blackberry Curve 8300- Shockingly awful!

AdvantagesOrganizer

DisadvantagesPoor signal, Poor performance

"I've had my blackberry curve now for over a year and have come to dislike it quite a lot. Here are my reasons of why I think the Blackberry is a shockingly awful product considering it comes from a reputable company: 1. I live in North Wales and the signal is terrible. True, this is more a service provider problem, however, I asked multiple friends who have blackberries also, all on different networks, and the answer was the same. 2. The little ..." Read review

good smartphone

Advantagesyou can buy it

Disadvantagesnone

"Advantages: Blackberry chat, internet, emails Disadvantages: Slow, reboots When I first got my blackberry curve I loved it! I had never owned a smart phone before it has to be said. So I loved the ease of receiving emails and being able to surf the net as and when I needed it. However, I have found that it does freeze quite a lot, which seems to be a similar problem with my partners blackberry too. Also it seems to reboot itself frequently with no ..." Read review

Blackberry 8300 curve

Advantageslarge screen, good colours, good features, great reception, good standby time

Disadvantagesheavy, screen not completely sealed by dust, body work scratched easily

"This phone is one that I thought was a great idea for both business and pleasure. It has all of the makings of a great phone, rreception is good, and emails are a great idea to send and recieve. However it is quite heavy, and I keep getting an error message saying 'insert sim' I have already had a replacement and it has happened again. There are several ring tones to choose from, and the screen is nice and big. It is alot better with a colour screen, ..." Read review

Curve 8300 has solid performance for email but not much else

AdvantagesCompact size, tactile keyboard, email functionality

DisadvantagesBattery life, web functionality

"After using the Blackberry Curve for 2 months now, I have come to a few conclusions in my own opinion. Firstly, this phone excels in it's email platform. Where the iPhones still await the cloud support that allows them to delete emails from the handset that is then reflected on their computer email accounts, Blackberrys have this function. This makes for slick and easy emailing. The QWERTY tactile keyboard makes for easy typing in text messages, data ..." Read review
