Lightbulb What is the difference between an 8100, 8120, and 8130?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all,

I am in the market for a new blackberry, but I'm on a budget. My blackberry pearl 8100 was accidentally dropped in a puddle of water, and I am looking to replace it. So as I was ebaying I saw there are 3 versions of the Pearl including ; the 8100, 8120, and 8130.

What are the differences? And which would you recommend?


Thank you so much for the help

I would agree. Really wish someone would fix them. Just before they quit working, I did find an interesting article while SEARCHING the FAQ.

Buying a BlackBerry off eBay - BlackBerryFAQ

Yep. that is a good one. Should be renamed "Buying a used BB" as the info really applies to buying a used BB from anyplace or from anyone.

Thanks everyone for the answers

I'm checking the links and researching. Some ebay auctions state the BB as "new"...well I'll just have to do some more investigating.

Check our FAQ for an article on "Buying a used BB from eBay". Some very valuable information there that could save you some grief later on. Buying a used BB isn't as simple as buying a used phone. Also do a SEARCH.

And don't believe the words "new" either.

The 8130 (AT&T) and the 8120 (T-Mobile), are the newest versions of the Blackberry Pearl. The 8120 and 8130 have a slightly better camera (2 megapixel) and also have video capabilities in the camera. The 8120 also has wi-fi similar to the Curve and the 8800, allowing broadband web over your home network or available hotspots, and also allows internet calling.

I thought the 8130 was a CDMA phone through Sprint or Verizon?

The video recording capability was brought by an OS update not hardware.

8820, 8320 had Wi-Fi.

Correct the 8130 is a CDMA device, all the other are GSM.
