BlackBerry Style (steel gray, Sprint)

 

The BlackBerry Style marks RIM's second-ever handset to ship with BlackBerry OS 6 (the first was the BlackBerry Torch), and it's also the first BlackBerry to have both a clamshell design and a full QWERTY keyboard. RIM has experimented with a flip...

The RIM BlackBerry Style combines a clamshell form factor and a full QWERTY keyboard. It ships with BlackBerry OS 6, which has an improved user interface, a new WebKit browser, and a better multimedia experience. Call quality was impressive

The Style's square design may be a bit bulky for some users, and the keyboard is a touch too flat for our tastes

Despite a few quirks, the RIM BlackBerry Style's practical design and advanced feature set make it a great smartphone for BlackBerry newbies and veterans alike.

Needless to say, I am heading to the Sprint Store in a few short minutes to see if they will take this mess back and have my old Blackberry Tour reactivated. I only jumped online to see if others were having the same issues I'm having, and I see that...

It's a pretty good phone

 

In all, I think the phone is great and it will serve me a good 2 years. :)

The camera on this thing is just amazing ; The keyboard is really nice if you are used to blackberry keyboards ; It has a great battery life ; It has many great cases to chose from on Amazon

It can be a little laggy sometimes ; Scratches easily, so I suggest keeping the protective covers on it when you get it

HATE THIS PHONE.

 

I wouldn't recommend this phone for anyone!! Crap! I can't wait to get my HTC EVO :D

The good part about it, is that it is a flip phone so you wont butt dial. It also takes good pics

The BAD = it is a slow as a turtle phone, it takes a minute for it to open apps and has a delay when typing text messages. The internet is also slow as crap!! When I answer the phone i have to give it a minute to catch up bc it has a delay in ending the r

"this phone has many problems"

 

i wouldn't recomend this phone to anyone a know. i have never had a blackberry before and i don't think that i will ever choose to get another again afer this terrible experiance with this one.

the pros would be the easy internet access as well as a few good apps and a good camera and video

the cons would have to be the overheating of the battery, it doesn't hold a charge very well, doesn't send photos very well,don't get good service from many areas,doesn't like to charge, i normally have to reset my phone a few times a day. and the speaker
