The screen is too small for web use. The camera takes very poor pictures in low light, has no flash.

I initially purchased this phone at $279, as the plan of $25 per month unlimited data, unlimited text, and several hundred minutes was a great deal to coordinate with a smart phone. At first I loved the phone. It was my first time having the email pushed to the phone and the data access was very convenient. Love the gps option as well. I do fully appreciate being connected and it has helped with the constant work emails. The downside has been the less than stellar reception, which is a phone issue. My daughter has a Virgin Mobile phone, a cheap one that picks up the signal much better. The battery life is depleted with a day of typical use, and I do not use the data all that much. I really don't like the extra $10 I have to pay for the blackberry package either. Wish I would have bought the Rumor or waited for the Droid. The shipping was fast from walmart and the overall online experience stellar.

I absolutely love this phone. The phone has e-mail, SMS texting, web browsing, calendar, blackberry apps and soooo much more! The best part about this phone is that if you go to blackberry dot com you can find a very nice interactive tutorial/demo for the BlackBerry Curve 8530. On the Blackberry Curve 8500 series page, scroll about half way down and you will see a link for a demo for the 8530 and this provides you with a lot of great tutorials to walk you through all of the neat features this phone has to offer. It comes with about 75 ringtones already on the phone and it should have a 2GB micro SD card already installed. Signal is great, texting is easy and I have not had any issues with the keyboard. I highly recommend this phone and you cannot go wrong with the $45 Virgin Mobile plan, which includes unlimited everything except talk and you get 1200 talk minutes on the $45 plan -- if you want unlimited talk (with everything else) get the $55 month plan (these prices were current as of September 2011).

I purchased my phone back when it was $99.99 - and 8 days later the price was reduced to $79.99. I thought $99.99 was a STEAL, afterall, my friends paid $159 - $189 in the last 3 months for the same phone, different carrier. I have had absolutely no delay in text messages, email delivery or dropped calls. The only problem I could imagine is the screen is smaller than the Android, ect. phones. I told my son how much I love my phone and offered to buy him an iphone and he said 'no way, I know too many people who have problems with touch screens right now'....I guess he is hoping there will be a solution to that issue. I purchased my phone on-line and the delivery time was 3 days (I have ordered on-line before and the delivery time was 2 days). I would tell anyone investigating new phone service (we had at&t for 14 years and I switched to Virgin with this phone) to seriously consider the Blackberry 8530, with the Virgin Pay-as-You-Go plan.
