BlackBerry Curve 9360
Advantages: Good web browser, convenient to have everything in the same place, love the keyboard
Disadvantages: Keeps crashing!
I'll start off by saying that this Blackberry had some very big shoes to fill. I adored my old Nokia, but eventually it got too battered and the screen broke, so I had to move on. Initially I was absolutely chuffed with this phone - the internet browser is easy to use and quite fast for a phone, the camera is decent, there is a wide range of apps available (my favourites are the Facebook app and Word To Go, a brilliant idea that allows you to edit documents on the phone) and it brings everything social into one place.
This last point is, I think, its best feature. I love having all of my emails, texts, Facebook messages and calls contained in one little, easy to use device, and don't even get me started on BBM (although I have found that it drains the battery somewhat).
However, I haven't found it to be all sunshine and happiness. I don't know if this is just my phone or a common problem but it keeps crashing at the worst moments. A little clock appears in the middle of the screen sometimes, like it's thinking, and the only way I can get rid of it is by removing the battery. It often goes for days without one of these little episodes, but they seem to come in fits. If I have a single freeze like that when I turn it on in the morning, then I know that the day is going to be full of them.
As I said, this might just be a fault with my phone, but it's really annoying!
Summary: It would be a brilliant phone if it stopped freezing.
