Default Need help ID'ing phone

Please Login to Remove!

my girlfriend just got a gift of an old blackberry phone but we can seem to find what model it is,

it looks like a BlackBerry Curve 8330

but its got the t mobile name just below the screen and to the left and right of the circle pad are two buttons for ok, menu, back and camera,

the volume control on the side is a scroll wheel,

any help figuring out that this phone actually is would be a big help


Edit: just managed to find it, its a T-Mobile Vairy Text

Doesn't sound like a BlackBerry at all.
There's no BlackBerry that has both a scroll wheel on the side as well as a "circle pad".

I've never seen an OK or Camera button a BlackBerry either.

Photos would help.

Yeah, sound like something other than a BlackBerry.

For an authentic BlackBerry, you can go to Options > About and read the first line to see the model number.

have you tried looking at the label under the battery or is it not legible?
