    Complaints?

    Advertisement



    Trying to talk my wife into getting a Pearl.

    She wants a 'smart phone' so she can access the web and all that good stuff but she has read some 'negative' reviews on the Pearl from Amazon.com and various websites. I'm telling her if she's getting a smartphone to NOT get a windows mobile device like the T-Mobile wing, which is what she 'wants' to get since she hasn't read good stuff about the pearl.

    I just want to hear (read) all the positive stuff about the pearl from you guys and any 'complaints' you have about it.

    Thanks :-)

    I had Pocket Pc's and was very disappointed with it. The BB is defenitely better

    Specifically the Pearl though. I know BB's are way better; just wondering if there is anything specific about the Pearl.

    Re: Complaints?

    umm its too reliable, shuretype is kinda faster then full qwerty for me, so i do end up spending much more on sms, too many free useful aplications to install, push mail is annoying, getting emails all the time instantly is just so terrible, its way to light and portable, too pretty, camera is only 1.2 MP but for some reason seems so much better. Well there is only one real complaint i have on it, the battery door isnt to stable and i just place a 50 c guitar pick under it to make it stay on perfectly, dont get me wron it doesent fall off left and right, just a little to easy to take off.
    EDIT: poket PC crash so much, why would anyone even think of getting something so bad, its like paying 500$ for an ipod shuffle instead of getting 80 GB ipod for same price, just makes so little scence.
    EDIT2: From waht i know most or all poket pc do not have OS upgrde, so if there is a bug, you live with it.

    Well, the only thing I'll have to complain ist that the Trackball died after six months of heavy use. Can't wait till TMO will replace the unit next week...

    But thats the only thing
