BlackBerry Flip 8220

 

The BlackBerry Pearl gets the Flip treatment. The Flip 8220 features dual colour displays. One for viewing previewing text messages, emails or checking out who's calling and an internal screen for the rest of its functions. Also featured is a QWERTY...

BlackBerry still hasn’t decided who its audience is. The Flip is too hip for executives, too chunky for street kids – but maybe just right for you, sir. Yes, you with the multiple email accounts, extensive media collection and trackball fixation....

All the Hardware but really Buggy software. Beware

 

At first I loved it without data plan but later added it. I was happy with it until apps got bigger and complex. This might I have constant memory problems with leaks and OS crashes that you have to backup your phone every week or you lose everything.

Flip design ; Large Keyboard (suretype) ; BlackBerry OS ; Number 1 is UMA (Wifi calling)

Small app memory ; Easy to crash OS (no fixes or support) ; Lags a lot when too many apps or web page

This is the worst phone our family has ever owned!

 

Buy a phone with a manufacturer that is prepared to fix or replace a defective product. Unfortunately, that's not Blackberry.

None as it never worked properly

From the day we got this phone, it has never worked properly. We sent it back twice and are still waiting for the "repairs". Blackberry doesn't stand behind it products, so if you need to by an unlocked phone, you're simply out of luck

Pretty Good - Worth my money

 

Its a good phone. It has stylish design with a powerful selection of apps. Many people look at one glitch in the phone and label it a failure, but I think it is reliable and stylish, with an innovative and easy to use OS.

It has an amazing design ; Good MP3 Player ; Easy to Text ; Good Battery Life

My phone freezes every now and then, but if you take the battery out and put in back in that resolves the problem ; Bluetooth came not working. I'm not sure if that's manufacturer or user issue

its not like the regular pearl

 

wast of money

i cant think of any

the battery goes dead quick and phone calls are not clear its nothing like the other pearl

Consumer review by:

Poor Reception for the first five months. Now none.

 

Find a different handset. We're not the first users or owners of the RIM BB 8220 to experience poor reception and sadly I doubt we'll be the last. If RIM continues to build products with quality attributes such as this it will be RIP for them.. (they...

Great Phone until we tried to make a call with it. If you're sitting or standing underneath a Cell Tower Great ! Otherwise, buy a different handset

Incredibly poor reception for five months then the receiver died

Consumer review by:

An endless source of frustration.

 

Picture this: You're 18 and you are driving home from college for the first time to go to work in your home town. You don't really know how to navigate the highways and you get lost. You reach for your phone and its SOSing. You can't stop on the...

Once you get used to it, the texting is great ; Lots of memory

It does this thing where for no reason at all, it goes into SOS mode where I can only call 911. It does it about 20 times a day for about 1 - 3 minutes at a time. Very very inconvenient

Flip...that's it"

 

I bought this because i like flip form factor... 

flip form, decent call clarity, reasonable speakerphone, standard blackberry mail client, excellent internal and external display, build quality

external display freezes on multi tasking, Needed hard reset in 6 months, bluetooth not working, scratch on the screen due to flip operation, suretype is not qwerty

Consumer review by:

"Good if it works, but good luck finding a working one."

 

I have gone through 9 of these phones and eac... 

Good design, I love the flip style phones, great keyboard (faster and more accurate then regular T9 phones), big screen although not big enough for web surfing in my opinion

Bluetooth stops working, Front screen freezes, Phone shuts off randomly requiring a battery pull to turn it back on
