"Great product. I love my Blackberry"4.5 starson by halfrantz
Pros: User friendly. Everything works. A must for the business user. Surprisingly good battery life.
Cons: After one month, the screen is showing some nicks. I carry the phone in my pocket which may account for the wear. I have ordered screen protectors and will give them a try.
Summary: I have had my blackberry Curve 8530 for about a month now. Since I am a business user, I was not interested in the multimedia features and apps that are touted so heavily by I-Phone and Droid. In fact I tried a Droid and found it downright annoying. Unlike the Droid, everything on the Blackberry is intuitive. I had no difficulty setting up my email accounts. My Gmail calendar syncs perfectly to the Blackberry. Some users have complained about battery life. Perhaps because I don't spend my life on the phone or the web, I have found that the battery lasts a couple of days, about the same as my prior dumb-phone. So I would recommend this product to anyone who wants a business tool, not a toy.
