I've got a Pearl Flip and haven't had any issues with it, I quite like it. I think it would be decent as a simple phone, especially since it has the hot-swap memory card (for music/videos) and the camera.
A note of caution: in my experience, a BB without a data plan can be an extremely frustrating experience. Even though the phone has WiFi, most data apps do not work if you have not received the data plan service books from your carrier, yet the icons for all those data apps are still there on the home screen for her to generate errors with. You may want to hide all those apps.
