I think you need to look for the good in the 8800 and not the bad. The good is overwhelming compared to the bad.

My only complaint is if you do not use your 8800 for music, the 2gb memory card is useless. I love the 8800 and have got very used to the keyboard coming from the 8700. I wanted QWERTY and the 8800 provides it nicely. To me the 8800 has the best build quality I have seen except the old 75XX series.

For me the negative is everybody elses fingerprints on my clean 8800. As for the memory card, I use mine to store documents that I forward frequently.

Holy Cow -- I never knew that I could attach files from the compose menu. Thanks for the tip - this is a VERY helpful feature for me.

1. Speed dial does not work from messages screen.
2. Application compatibility for 8800 (not their fault, I know)
3. Multiple attachments for email. Only reason I mention this, our sales people want to stick their micro SD and sent out lo-res pictures. Who knows how long that would work before they broke it.
4. I want my wave theme back!

Many more new good features than lost old ones.

Thanks

I am a new BlackBerry user as well. I use a BB 8800 from Cingular. In general, it is the best smartphone device I have ever used. Especially in terms of Syncing up Contact, Calendar and E-mail with my Microsoft Exchange server based Outlook database.

The single major flaw I have identified is that BlackBerry devices are not able to correctly synchronize tasks items with Microsoft Outlook. This is a big problem for me.

You can read about this specific problem in detail at this thread:

http://www.blackberryforums.com/rim-software/67373-tasks-bug-8800-dates-transposed-one-day-into-past.html?posted=1#post470972

Otherwise, I have to say I love the BlackBerry 8800. Everything else it does, it does it so well that I think I can temporarily live with the tasks not syncing correctly.

Recurring tasks do not work. The reminder only goes off for the first occurrence, but never again for subsequent occurrences. This is a confirmed issue with Blackberries, and I am very disappointed to find that this has a been a problem for years according to some online research. The BB Tech Support guy (tech support was great by the way - they CALLED ME 3 times in one day. I think that is great!) told me that he has no idea if/when this problem may be fixed.

If your main focus is phone and email, the BBs are great. But I find that it leaves a bit to be desired in other areas -- just a little. However, Tasks is a huge disappointment.

On a positive note though, one really superior ability, of my 8100 anyway, is Bluetooth headset range. I thought it was normal for Bluetooth calls to drop if you got 10 feet or so away from your phone. With the BB, I can leave it on the desk and roam around without dropping the call. Very nice! I bet the 8800 is the same.

That sounds promising since my last smartphone forgot it was a cell phone and wouldn’t work. Sorry, still venting.

I can't speak for the two 3d party apps you mention, but I use several others on my 8800 with any problems at all-

PocketDay
WebMessenger
ToDoMatrix
Telenav
InfoSpaceFindIt!
VR+

My only real issue w/ Blackberry's is that Flash player is not implemented nor available to download which holds back many internet features.

Yea and you trust those geeks over our geeks?

Why don't you load Yahoo Messenger on your 8800 and give it a try out and see for yourself if it works?

If you set up a recurring appointment in your calender the reminder will work every day, every week day, whatever you need...at whatever time you specifiy. I have the same problem with the task program but the calender never fails me.

That's your homework to do by reading this and other forums covering the 8800.

Juvesun -- Please excuse my response, I did not read your first post that you were wanting to buy the 8800, only the later post about yahoo and the cnet review. No need to get snitty with me, just a suggestion to try it.

BTW, at your website, the proposed BB 8800 you are offering to sell does not have WiFi as you advertise.

Juice901, thanks for the tips. I have noticed that my calendar recurrences are working. However, Tasks and Calendar serve 2 very different functions for me. This really is not a workable solution for me. I know I may sound unreasonable, but it is a fact of how I must manage my time and productivity. More unreasonable than my expectations is the fact that RIM's products include features that flat out don't work.

I have been sending emails to bbsuggestions@<hidden> requesting that the functionality included with the Tasks application be patched so that it actually functions.

There is also a bug in the way that times in Tasks sync with Outlook: http://www.blackberryforums.com/rim-software/67373-tasks-bug-8800-dates-transposed-one-day-into-past.html

I implore that others send emails to RIM as well on this matter, in an effort to raise awareness that there are people who use Tasks and expect them to work. RIM does not believe that BB users are Task users. Their focus on messaging clearly has resulted in a fantastic messaging device. But if I had known from the start that core PDA type functionality was broken, I would have given more consideration to the MS products on the market.

(I really do like most everything else about my BB.)

I have two problems that really bother me.
I find anything having to do with accessing media like music and photos takes longer than expected. In fact the 8800 seems slower than my 8700.

When zooming photos they are pixelated. Only when you go to full zoom or past 80% of full zoom do the photos get fully rendered.

No album art for AAC files. This is a software issue not really a bug...

the major problem i have seen when i bought one and returned was Lag... and my coworker who has one that ive setup for him also complains of the lag... personally i dont like the keyboard but that not a bug, just poor design, if they stuck a 8300 keyboard it would have been a much better device

That's only a 4.1.x feature, and only if your BES/BIS supports it.

The trackball has become a favorite of mine, but it does need to be refined a bit. When viewing web pages in Mobile View, movement of the trackball is rather unpredictable. Sometimes it moves click by click down the page, other times it throws you all the way to the bottom. I find the Desktop View to give better control with the pointer, but you're stuck having the search around the entire page to view all content.

I do wish the trackball gave more tactile feedback. The audible click option helps, but it just doesn't give the same visceral feel of a trackwheel. Maybe I'm simply missing my 8700. Hmm ... wouldn't it be great if RIM would put BOTH a pearl and a wheel on the 9XXX? Probably not possible. But I can dream.

have you tried changing your settings in options for pics? there is 3 levels of quality for images when browsing the web. low medium high. high takes longer to load and obviously low quality would be faster.

here is how you navigate to check

open browser, browser options, general properties, and you will see the selection there to change what image quality level you want

I have Yahoo Messenger working on my 8800. If you're a Cingular customer, then you have to go through some gyrations to get it working, but it does work. On other carriers, it works out of the box. You can check out the software link from BlackBerry Discover BlackBerry (http://www.discoverblackberry.com) to see the download for Yahoo Messenger for Blackberry, but as I mention, Cingular will block this and you have to do some workaround. Search this site for instructions on how to do it...

Separating this post of two bugs that really irk me.

1. You cannot mute and unmute a call by pressing the mute button on the phone while the phone is in the holster. I used to be able to use my bluetooth headset, and holster the phone while in the car. Then, I could just mute and unmute by hitting the button on the phone, so that I don't have to mess with the fit of my bluetooth headset.

2. Is there no way to go to the home screen without confirmation while on a call?
