Please Login to Remove!

when someone calls and i go to pull phone out of pocket or go to get it. the joystic moves and highlights end and the phone gets muted so you think the call got ended....

Kinda sucks which you can undo the joystick as the answere key

I would say its worth $199 and possably more.
Camera is nice. Prolly the best 1.3mp camera i ever used.
its really small so going from a TYTN to a E61 to a 8700 as my 3 phones i switch around, this thing feels liek a toy until you get used to it.

I would say at first i thought it was to small. but it takes time to get used to and once you do its amazing.

I wouldn't take back that size for anything. The phone is the best BB ever released to date.

some people would surely have a problem with the size, trust me.

im 6'2'' and have big hands and i can tell you its very weird to type on such a small phone.


BTW: those who are used to keyboard shortcuts like R for reply etc... that all changes! page down bottom page etc.. thats all diffrent.... another thing to get used to

Very true about the size, but I definitely have more customers saying the BB's are too bid rather than too small. So it's been time for a resize and every customer I talk to can't wait...

So are there even keyboard shortcuts. The 7100 didn't have them so are they on the 8100.

ahh gotcha... never knew that other blackberrys had that

when you get a message in the blackberry message and you open it does it go straight to the typing bar? mine goes straight to a little thing that says when the message was received then i have to push the wheel in and it goes to the type bar.

a little annoying

If device is holstered and not locked it will go directly to the message, if you open blackberry messenger it will just goto the active conversations list.
