Written on: 02/08/2009

Ok, I've had the Blackberry Pearl 8100 for a while now and i think i've got a pretty good idea of what is good and what isn't. Personally i think the phone is really great when is comes to navigating, its really simple and easy to adapt for personal preference.
The keyboard, personally for me is great. Im used to full qwerty's on my phones and i soon adapted. Despite what people say, i think it's easy to move from full to the smaller one. You don't have to move your fingers as much so it saves… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/01/2009 by Fobyac25 (9 reviews written)

The Blackberry Pearl 8100 is compact and light for all it's features. Nice screen size All went well until it got damp one day. From then on itseemed to become unpredictable. Auto texting everyone in my address book over and over again. Phoning both random and phonebook numbers at it's own will. It wouldn't stay turned off - I had to remove the battery at night and in the cinema. The pearl ball broke within a week. Callers could not hear me at random. It used to hang with its egg timer for… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/05/2008 by RAClarke (2 reviews written)

Generally I like the blackberry pearl it does have a lot of good points, unfortunately you can always work, but I generally think the ball is a bad design, because it always breaks, this is my third blackberry in 6 months, they can with stand a beating to the exterior but the ball, like the old ball mouses for your PC, they seem to have the same design floor… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/12/2007 by blackberry mo (1 review written)

The blackberry pearl 8100 is my favorite device so far. I am a high user being a real estate agent and find this device very user friendly. You have to be very careful not to drop it and I strongly recommend carrying it in a leather case to protect it should it happen to fall as it is a very sensitive computerized device… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/06/2007 by foxview (71 reviews written)

The Blackberry Pearl 8100 is a very good phone. Emails were easy to set up and use. The two letters per key does take some getting used to but if you are into texting then this is a very good phone. The camera is also very good. The sound quality could do with boosting a little bit as I think it sounds a little tinny… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/05/2007 by Mustdriveslower (2 reviews written)

Horrid phone not thought through. The keyboard is fiddly as is the silly non qwerty set up. Bluetooth is absolute rubbish. RIM have got to sort it. This went back and the 8800 replaced it. Reception better and not one problem with Bluetooth. Bad phone, keep away!… Read Full Review

“I am probably going to return the Blackberry Pearl...”

Written on: 15/05/2007 by SpencerH (1 review written)

I am probably going to return the Blackberry Pearl during the fourteen day trial period simply based on the reception quality. I think phone manufacturers are forgetting that it is a phone first and are too busy working on the camera, MP3 or organizer feature. I really like the email and if I travelled more would place more importance on this function… Read Full Review
