Blackberry Curve 9300
Advantages: Easy to set up and easy to use for technical and non-technical people
Disadvantages: Buttons are a little small for big hands
I bought this as a Christmas present for the wife as her sisters and her mum all have BlackBerry's and she wanted to BBM them etc. I wanted to get her a phone that would still work and look good in a year or so as she only changes her phone every 2-3 years!! (Unlike me).
I bought this BlackBerry on a 24 month contract with Orange and I do not regret this purchase at all.
Having played with it myself getting it all set up for the missus I have found the phone to be user friendly and after the installation process and adjusting the tones etc I quickly picked up how the phone works and so did the wife. One drawback to this phone is that the keys are quite small so anyone with big thumbs will make plenty of mistakes in emails/texts but they might get used to it.
The device has a very long standby time and there are many apps to download (free and paid) to your phone to customise it.
It is a nice light feeling phone and has plenty of features including email, calendar, reminders, games and music.
Overall it is a great phone and completely changed my view on BlackBerry's (it wasn't good before) and would be a phone I would use personally if it was not for the small buttons.
My reviews are based on personal experience and as such will generally only include technical data as if explained to a non technical person. My reviews contain my personal thoughts and experiences with the items I am reviewing and aim to give a view of how something works (or doesn't) in everyday use rather than a list of features. I hope this helps.
A list of technical features can be found on the nav bar next to reviews.
Summary: An excellent smartphone
