"Not a very good phone"1.0 starson by homerman9
Pros: call quality, keyboard
Cons: phone tends to freeze, connector on charging port losing connection easily and frequently, battery life is variable/poor, phone gets really hot, trackball is not responsive, whenever you update the OS the phone resets itself to original state
Summary: I've had 2 of these phones and both of them have had the same problems. They were buggy phones right out of the box as the trackball was very unresponsive. These phones get hot enough to the point where I had to get a bluetooth earpiece because the phone was too hot on my face. Also for whatever reason, whenever you update the software on the phone everything goes back to the original state. By this I mean you either have to redownload applications or enter all of your information again to get them to work. Also the first time I updated the OS it erased everything on my phone completely. Contacts, calendar, service book, everything. It was as if the phone was still back at the assembly plant and they hadn't put anything on it but the OS. I couldn't even get onto the app store or internet or anything. Phones calls were about all I could do. The biggest annoyance with this phone is the charging port. Neither phone I've had has kept a good connection with any charger I have and it tends to lose connection even when you are not touching or moving the phone. I don't know how many times I've plugged it in at night and found it dead by morning because it stopped charging. Don't even think about trying to use the phone while it is plugged in as you will get the clock screen repeatedly. Also, when your phone does completely die from lack of charge, why does it take forever for Blackberries to turn on again and have radio functionality. If the phone is plugged in you should be able to do anything on it, but instead you have to wait. Booting up from a completely off phone takes forever also. From the time you press the on button, until the time you gain use of the phone is like 4-5 minutes. That is way too long. All in all this is a terrible phone, and I will be switching to Android as soon as I can.
