Default Blackberry Pearl died

Please Login to Remove!

The battery has worn out. Phone is 2 1/2 years old. Time for upgrade.

This has been a great phone, with all the features that work for me. I need to decide on a replacement. Any suggestions?

TIA

I looked at the newer bold and the tour, but also looked at the $$$

New battery for 8100 cost $75.00 Can. Upgrade to Pink Pearl flip 8220$9.95.
Loving the new flip phone. Nice keyboard. Love the wireless feature.

Hi Shirley,
Even if you do upgrade, it's still worth getting a battery to keep the other phone as a spare. I'm not sure where you got a price of $75, but seems hugely expensive.
On ebay, you can find them for about $10-15CDN
Take care,
Rob
