Blackberry Curve 9300
Advantages: stylish light weight with good features
Disadvantages: short battery life, kept freezing
I was due a new phone as my old one was slowly dying on me, after looking on the internet at various different mobiles I came across the BlackBerry Curve 9300 in White.
I read up on the phone and decided this was the one I wanted.
I ordered it from Car Phone Warehouse for £169 and was very happy and excited to receive my new phone.
As soon as I got my new BlackBerry Curve I put it straight on charge as I have been told the longer you leave your battery to charge the first time the better. (I don't actually know if this is true but I always do it).
For the first couple of days I adored my new phone, it did everything I wanted, however within 3 or 4 days my camera stopped working and I wasn't able to take pictures. I rang my network (Orange) and told them what was happening and they advised me to simply take the battery out and put it back in again. I tried this and hey presto it worked again.
For the next few months it was working fine until it started to freeze all the time.
Also the track pad created a mind of its own after about 4 months of owning it. Every time I wanted to scroll down my stubborn phone decided to scroll up instead.
Two of my good friends have also had the same phone and experienced the same troubles I had.
I really loved this Blackberry It looked very stylish and if I hadn't of had these problems all the time I would have kept it longer as the actual Blackberry Services are brilliant and great value for money.
The phone itself is very light weight and has an excellent look to it.
The battery was shocking though, I charged my phone every day and if I used the internet, listened to music or took photos it would eat my battery and be nearly dying by the time I got home.
It has a good memory space as I was able to store a lot of songs, pictures and videos on it but also pointless as previously stated about the battery power.
I also love the QWERTY keyboard and found it very easy and fast to txt or e-mail.
Over all if this phone didn't let its self-down with silly faults it would be perfect but as it did it wasn't the one for me.
Summary: an nice phone to look at with great features if it didnt keep freezing
