Blackberry Curve 8320
Advantages: Everything, BBM, Internet, Facebook, Email, KEYBOARD
Disadvantages: None that I can see!
I was never a PDA person. But when I lost my phone a friend gave me thier old work phone and as it was free I took it. NOW I AM NEVER WITHOUT IT!
The Blackberry Curve was given to me when it had only been used for 2 months before. With the Blackberry Data Plan added on this phone really comes into its own. The built in E-mail features are great for important Uni and personal e0-mails as different accounts can be set up and managed. The ease and simplicity of replying to an e-mail on the curve makes my laptop a little obsolete. Their is never a chance to forget to reply if you can do it on the go!
Being a Social Network Junkie the Facebook application from Blackberry is amazing. Notifying me on screen when an update comes through I am always in the loop and connected to my friends. Even those without BBM can use Facebook to have a conversation on the go. Them on the laptop me on the Blackberry.
Onto Blackberry Messenger. This is a little addictive. When someone is on and chatting i often find myself BBm-ing for ages and even my friends in the states can be easily reached and spoken to with BBM.
What I didn't expect was the handiness of the built in powerpoint and word. This makes editing and adding to assignments and essays easy when on buses and trains between Uni and home. Deadlines look less threatening when you can edit the essay on route to Uni without a large laptop.
This covers the fancy and bonuses of the phone. As a phone the Blackberry Curve really shines too. It functions as a phone making and receiving calls but text messages are all in the same thread meaning you can look over the whole conversation as you reply, meaning you never look stupid for re-asking or missing a question!
Overall LOVE THIS PHONE and now comes and goes everywhere with me!
Summary: Became a part of my life!
