"My two cents for what it is worth"4.5 starson by Brad_Man
Pros: Easy to master
Cons: Minor if any
Summary: This is a great phone.
Being a novice Blackberry user I had the initial growing pains. I could not figure out the symbols. Push the alt key and you get the symbol above the letter. Duh! How do you get the apps you want on the home page? Move them on the application menu to where you would like tham. How do I set the convenience key? Go to the keyboard/set-up > advance options. How do I set-up an e-mail account yada..yada. Typical problems. It took me forever to figure out how to send a text message. Go to address book click contact and send SMS. Duh. Anyways this should tell you all they have good doco between Blackberry and/or Verizon. It was a matter of reading the manual and applying what was illustrated. I highly recommend reading the materials. So many features. The Verizon web site demo was very helpful to figure our solutions and the common activities.
I have the phone paired with Motorola wireless headphones. Great for music as well.
A negative I would state is the location of the SD card. It is behind the battery. I suppose if you buy a large enough SD card you don't need to worry about swapping this out. It is a pain though. The available e-mobile web pages are lacking. Not the IE experience you are used to surfing from a desktop cable modem.
Battery life seems very good.
I added email accounts in a matter of minutes. Corporate email was a sinch.
The resolution is fabulous. No matter the conditions sunny, evening, at night, dim room. Any situation. I should note here that I a lasik person from 5 years ago, and the small print is becoming difficult for me to read in dim lighting. No problems here.
A couple quirks things that should be corrected by RIM. Where is the delete all option for the message box? You seem to go into many menu options for what I perceive as simple tasks. Where is the DEL key in other words on the keyboard? This option would save a ton of navigating menus.
Overall best phone I have ever used. Not only fun to tinker with but very useful!
I recommend highly.
