My Blackberry History I've had a few Blackberry handsets now and having got used to each one for either 12 or 18 months, the enormous improvements in the handsets have impressed me every time. My most recent upgrade has been to the Curve 8900, which is, without a doubt, the best Blackberry that...

Blackberry Curve 8900 Introduction Way back in 1973, mobile phones were only just being invented, and very basic they were too, not to mention uncannily large. Who would have thought that nearly forty years later, modern day mobile phones are at the forefront of the technology world. With every...

I've owned my Blackberry curve for around 5-months and before I go into any depth with this review, I'd like to announce its had no problems since purchase. So despite what many people say about these phones, here’s one persons positive opinion of their reliability. Do bare in mind though, that I...

blackberry messenger service, highly popular

pretty much everything else!

I got my phone contract with 02 in summer of 2009 and continued to use it on PAYG just for the infamous blackberry service until about feb this year when it finally went kaput. When I first purchased this phone, it was during the growth of blackberry's popularity. There are a lot of pros and cons...

First of all, let me say I have never owned a blackberry or a smartphone before (although I do like to play on my brother's nokia e71) so I cannot compare it to other blackberries and smartphones, but as a new user only. key features: * Camera (3.2 MP) * Wi-Fi® Support * Built-in GPS * Enhanced...

Fiddly keypad and touchpad, no touch-screen.

There are plenty of pluses to the Blackberry Curve, but for the fatter-fingered amongst us, it can be a bit of an ordeal trying to find them. As clever and handy as it probably is having a whole keyboard tucked in beneath the screen, composing a message or e-mail tends to be a chore. My thumb...

History The blackberry curve was the first phone that i had on a contract, which i bought in January 2009. Before that i owned a Sony Ericsson w850i, so for anybody that knows phones you will know the massive degree of difference between the phones. But at the time i figured 'hey, it does...

Great for phone for business and personal use.

The trackball breaks a little too easily

I used to hate mobile phones. I didn't get my first until I turned 26 in 2001 and that was under sufferance. Over time they've gone from something I've detested to tolerated to now can't live without. This love of mobile telephony has grown since the company I work for invested in BlackBerries...

Makes you lazy, short battery life.

Im a bit behind the times, what with the Blackberry storm, the Iphone 3g and all the other new phones out at the moment, but i recently got my hands on a Blackberry Curve, for free via vodafone. I have a to say, i love it. I was worried it might be a bit poncy or "business man"-like, but it isn't...

Blackberry Curve 8900 I'd never been the type to want a Blackberry before. In fact, whenever I thought of 'blackberry' I thought of a big, bulky phone that'd practically require a full workman force to carry it. Ok, so my thoughts were a little exaggarated, but essiantally - wasn't it a...

During the last ten years I've owned Nokia, Motorola and HTC handsets. However, when I got my hands on a brand new Blackberry Curve 8900 everything became so incredibly easy. When I assessed the merits of the Blackberrys I narrowed my choice down to the Curve but had to choose between the keypad...

I've recently obtained the Blackberry Curve 8900 after using a Blackberry Pearl for around 2 years. The first thing I noticed about this phone was its very sleek and appealing look, making it the most attractive Blackberry RIM has produced thus far. Its chrome edging, full QWERTY keyboard and 2...

I can honestly say that I feel as if this small black and silver phone is the perfect replacement for all my scruffy notepads, my miniature diary and my laptop all in one. Contrary to popular belief I don't think this is a device for a middle-aged-business-type-man. Instead I feel it is the...

the battery doesn't last long

I have had the BlackBerry Curve 8900 for just over one year now and if this ever breaks down on me then I will just buy it again! Or one very similar to it. I am currently using it on Orange Pay As You Go which I have found to be very good and very reliable with Blackberry internet for just £5 a...
