Anyone know phones really well (blackberry)?
« on: 11:10 AM - 08/12/11 »
I need to get a new cell phone for my existing sprint plan. Unfortunately I bought a windows 6.1 smart phone and it's been an absolute nightmare.

It's the HTC snap. I LOVE the size/layout of it but the software is an abortion and I can't deal with it anymore.  I noticed blackberry (8350 in particular) because they are very similar in size but i'm so scared to get into another operations horror story so I'm wondering if anyone has any insight with it.   Also if you know of a phone similar to what i'm looking for with a good operation system, please let me know.

I use my phone for scheduling, calling and texting. I don't surf the web on it or network so I don't need a big screen blah blah blah.


google image, not my hand, lolz.

So THAT'S what he's been up to while thousands of children die of famine and disease in Africa on a daily basis.

Blackberry is great for the things you are looking for in my experience. The keyboards on them are excellent. I have owned the 8350 and 9650 on Sprint and I much prefer the 9650. The keyboard is better, the phone is more responsive, and the resolution of the screen is better for messaging and pretty much anything you will do with the phone.

Thanks Stetab, exactly what I was looking for.

windows mobile 6 in 2011?  Not surprising that you hated it.  I had the same sprint phone for about 4 years (just got rid of it 1.5 months ago), and it ran windows mobile 6.  I just got used to the limitations, and used it for basic phone stuff.

Now I have an android phone (galaxy S 4g), and it's like a whole new world, lol.  But from what I understand, BB's are very good at the stuff you want.  I believe there are a couple of new models being released right now too, so make sure you do a bit of research and get a newer one!
