      Good but not what expected from BB


      I got this phone when my iPhone crashed. I have never had a problem with it working on AT&T network. It was really easy to change from T-Mobile to AT&T. However, battery has started dying faster with time, I don't always receive all of a text message, MMS messages don't send even with a full signal. Apps take forever to load if they do at all! There are a few things I don't like but overall it has been a good phone for when I needed one.

      No, I would not recommend this to a friend

      Wasn't Unlocked


      I purchased the blackberry on-line from the unlocked portion of cell phones. When I received the phone and went to activate it through my carrier I found out that it was still linked to T-Mobile and was uable to use it. I really needed a new phone and was let down that I have to return it.

      Stay away from this phone.


      This phone has not worked from the first day I bought it. It keeps searching for the network and an SOS message is continually present on the screen. The only plus, the internet works great.

      No, I would not recommend this to a friend
