Good points:
The blackberry is well i suppose usedbto be the.great phonr for bbm and ease of.texting. Its easybto hold and text with no problems. And tmobile have been great. Also costs are low being all u van eat data which is ideal for me!
Bad points:
The markets changed.now and everyone is using samsungs otviphones.really asbthey are.better phones. On the blackberry there is lack of apps on blackberry world and the phone constantly times out on me with the little clock face in the middle.of the screen which is very frustrating! Andbi have realised i have no use for bbm as everyone else has changed phones and bbm was prob the biggest benefit!
