I am visually impaired and the size 14 font is wonderful! Also like full qwerty keyboard that is clear to read. Navigation is great.Internet is great. Best is the font size - have not found another mobile that has such big font

Setting up email was difficult and I still cant get hotmail to work with it. Also Blackberry site is very poor indeed. I get virtually blank pages off the web so had to get help to set up mobileemail. no other email works with it so far. Also, it was...
