Got this for my husband

I got this for my husband to replace his work phone - a Palm - when he retired. He picked it out for its size and feel, as well as its capabilities.

I got this for my husband to replace his work phone - a Palm - when he retired. He picked it out for its size and feel, as well as its capabilities. He loves it, but there are a couple of things I should mention: 1) It has no camera, which was a bonus with his work phone. 2) You can't access t-mobile web for $5.99 like you can with other t-mobile phones, which would be nice at this point. You have to pay $20 for real blackberry web access, which is more than we need at this time. I think that is true with all blackberries and carriers, but it knocks my review down to four stars. That said, he loves his phone. The texting is great, he says it never makes a mistake - it has a better vocabulary than my little VM phone. Whether he works / sails during his retirement, the capabilities of this phone will work for him. Less

Unreliable.

I have had this phone for less than 6 months. It periodically deletes my call logs and emails and resets itself. There are times when it is "processing" for up to five minutes.

I have had this phone for less than 6 months. It periodically deletes my call logs and emails and resets itself. There are times when it is "processing" for up to five minutes. When I called support I was told "this is a know error of that device!!!" It wasn't made known to me when I bought the phone! I was told that if there are too many messages, the device will automatically clear out. It gives no prompt. Also, it deletes text messages before I can read them! I get notification of a new message, but when I go to the inbox it is completely empty! This occurs when the phone is totally empty, not only with full memory. In addition, it has been downloading ALL my email, even one marked read, without notice or reason. I will check my phone only to see that there are 250+ new messages! The time it takes to clear these errors is not worth the effort. My sister has a treo, I'm trading in. Less

I have had this phone for almost a year and it has been great until quite recently. It started when I had to struggle to hear someones voice on the other side of the line because there voice was so low. Then it started DELETING all text messages and call logs (right after the call came in). Then it just started overloading, during normal operations you know like coming out of key lock, and selecting an item, RIDICULOUS. How can it get this overloaded, it was so overloaded that I couldnt even answer a call because it couldnt process it. This is the worst phone I've ever had, and I dont want to even deal with getting it fixed or getting a new one. Im just gonna get a new one and definetely not another blackberry for quite some time.

Horrible

It's too bad that I couldn't give this a zero. I bought my BlackBerry 7105t one year and nine days ago. My warrenty was for one year and it broke yesterday. Would they try to help me? Nope.

It's too bad that I couldn't give this a zero. I bought my BlackBerry 7105t one year and nine days ago. My warrenty was for one year and it broke yesterday. Would they try to help me? Nope. After trying to fix the phone (it didn't fall and break, it broke down in the middle of me writing an email) for over an hour with a tech, I was finally told that I was welcome to purchase a new phone. Well wasn't that nice of them, to let me buy another phone after the $400 phone I bought one year and nine days earlier broke. This wasn't the only issue I had with this phone either. As soon as I started using it I kept hearing my friends on the other line telling me that I was always breaking up. I eventually called customer care and they told me that the microphone on this model was sensitive and anyone with a deep voice was hard to hear unless the volume was turned down. So I turn down the volume on my phone so people could hear me. Well then I couldn't hear anyone talking to me. Luckily I was able to reach another genius in their customer care department who told me to change the volume when I wanted to talk and when I wanted to listen. I guess I should have bought the $4000 that wouldn't make me have to do that. Long story short....if I can stop one person from buying this phone them my work here is done. Less

I have suffered through the Blackberry 7105t since March 2006. This phone has a very limited memory and a tragic response to overload--it deletes all text message history and call logs! Thinking this may be a problem with my specific device prompted me to use the warrenty to replace it with another 7105t. The replacement phone has the same problem. Every person I've met with this phone has expressed the exact same difficulty with this phone. Do yourself a favor and try something else. Less

When I first started looking at this phone over a year ago I was nervous because I thought it would break easily with the big screen and small form. After reading many reviews I was satisfied it would be ok. You can only imagine my anger when it slid of my couch and bounced harmlessly on a wood floor or so I thought. Picking it up I noticed a crack running the length of the screen (top to bottom). I was stunned - how flimsy is that!! Fortunately it was only in the outer plastic cover and the LCD display itself was fine. I've been using it like this for a good year now and have not had any issues with the crack. Since then I've dropped the phone about fifty times (now you know why I was worried about it's construction in the first place - I'm hard on my electronics) and other than some minor scuff marks it's fine. The other day I was having a really really bad day and after hanging up in anger I proceeded to throw my phone at my dashboard. It promptly bounced off and hit my windshield and fell to the ground. I picked it up, by now a little calmer and quite worried I had destroyed my phone. To my relief their was absolutely no damage to my phone. My windshield however had a 6 inch star shaped crack in it!! Seems ever since that first disappointment with it's durability my phone has turned into a brick. I'll keep that in mind when I lock myself out of my car again rather than wait for 2 hours in below zero temps for the AAA guys to show up. Everything else is awesome. The email works really well as does all the other messaging (SMS, IM, etc.) Bluetooth is also really nice feature and the desktop sync software gives you piece of mind. Setting up the phone was a breeze as I just imported my outlook address book and voila no need to spend hours typing in your contacts. It also gives you a backup, which with the way I treat the phone I might need at any second. Now at least I know my data will be safe My big complaint is the whole suretype thing. It has some big issues with some common words. For example, "yet" and "try" use the same two keys so it never knows which one you want. Other combos are "see" and "are", or "for" "foe" "doe" or "got" "hot" or "five" "dive" "dice" You can see why this can get annoying. Also sometimes it comes up with really weird choices giving you gibberish instead of a word. It's also unforgiving about your spelling - for example if you type wory (instead of worry) it'll guess "wort" Makes guessing what someone wanted to say a little harder Granted it always gives you a choice, but when I'm typing I have to look at the keys not the screen. Plus even if you do look at the screen the progression can be something like this when typing "dinner" (i'll include the choices to give you an idea)by the time you've typed "dinne" your choices in order are: Dunne|dinne|funne|finne|dubbe|funbe|dinbe|finbe|funbr|dinbr As you can see the primary choice is not what you want to see, so looking at the screen will do you little good other than knowing your choice is still being considered - if "dinne" wasn't on the list you'd know you probably had a typo somewhere. These days I'm hoping T-Mobile will start carrying the 8800 blackberry, otherwise I may have to switch to cingular after all.... Less

I love this phone.

from Amazon
I have had no problems at all with this phone. It works fantastic in every way. I believe it is hard for people to hear if I press the phone to my face and talk without using my hands to hold the phone. Otherwise, reception has been great. I'm glad I bought it.

Along with all the good stuff in my job, there's a potential downside: I'm 'on' 24/7 in time zones all over the world. One of the reasons I can manage this is my BlackBerry 7105t (T-Mobile). But you gotta' manage it or it will manage you. The functions I use constantly are email, phone, contacts, calendar, and alarm clock. I get clear and reliable service on all five of those fronts, and fail-safe operation is essential to me (especially the alarm clock!). Contrary to what change-abhorrent colleagues might tell you, SureType is *not* difficult to get under your belt. For a minimum of time invested in how to type that way, you come away with a compact device that'll learn to recognize and correct the spelling of the words you use most. I've had a Parrot BlueTooth gizmo installed in the two cars I use frequently. As soon as I enter the car, the BlackBerry synchs up its address book with the Parrot and I can yak away in car-as-office mode. The downside: since this is an alarm clock for me, there is the tendency to wake up in the middle of the night, notice the little flashing light of the BlackBerry, and check the emails that have come in whilst I've slept (or tried to). This is the pathetic habit of sad little men and should be avoided by personal discipline rather than blamed on the BlackBerry as a failing of the technological possibilities it presents. I charge the BlackBerry three different ways: by a dedicated charge chord in my home office, by connecting it to my desktop at work, and by way of a cigarette-lighter connection in my cars. Earlier versions required a physical connection to synch up with desktop software. This one does it all wirelessly. If I'm working remote and my assistant back at the office adds an appointment or changes a telephone number, it all updates instantly on my Blackberry. The same happens back home if I make the update on the Blackberry itself. When I arrive at an international destination, the BlackBerry downloads a message from the local provider before the plane has taxied to a stop. With it, I can call home with little or no extra effort. I suppose I'll eventually look back on this BlackBerry as primitive technology. For now, it strikes me as cutting edge and accomplishes all the stuff I can imagine for it to conquer. Now if they could just make one that dispenses toothpaste at the end of those long gel-and-paste-free flights. Less
