The phone is fine in general. The problem was that a working charger was not provided, cables and headphone/mic was not provided as said as well. The back of the phone was damaged and was not verified before purchasing. I was about to return it but I didn't want to pay for the shipping and the restock fee, therefore only getting back less than half of what I bought it for. Less

Pro: Small Con: Price Being a student, up to the minute email alerts are not on my requirements when I bought it. The 7100g takes a little bit of time to get used to but taking that time will allow you to enjoy the features in the future. I have not yet had any problems with reception with calling that I have not had with regular cell phones. The problem could be your reception in that area or your service provider. Talking in public places have other noises to deal with, so either buy an ear piece or move to a area with less noise. (If you are on a public bus or train please tell the person you will call back later, its annoying and you look stupid talking to when no one else is) Less

Pro: Not as wide as most BlackBerry devices, has Bluetooth, great speakerphone, qwerty-type keypad layout, excellent PIM functionality, fun games. Con: List-based menu prior to 4.1.0.292 firmware update, hard to see screen when outside in daylight. Using experience: 6 months Ever since I upgraded the firmware to v4.1.0.292, I have had a hard time trying to put my Blackberry down! The new icon-based menu is more appealing and the ability to install different themes is great! Less

Excellent Edition

I've used, and enjoyed, the normal form-factor BBs, and at upgrade time I was torn between the 8700 and the 7100g.

I've used, and enjoyed, the normal form-factor BBs, and at upgrade time I was torn between the 8700 and the 7100g. While the email capabililty is a must, I'd grown tired of talking into what appeared to be a calculator. Besides the bulky ergonomics, I couldn't get past the idea that my voice just couldn't reach the microphone with the older form-factor (7290, etc...). Choice made, and I couldn't be happier. This phone is excellent for me. No coverage problems (not that that's normally a hardware problem, anyway), and no difficulties with the hardware switch from old to new. Pros: 1) Screen is phenomenal. While the 8700 is better, this one is excellent. 2) Form-factor is perfect for people who want to treat their BBs as phones. 3) Home screen layout is preferred. Where the older models are a massive grid of oft-unused icons, the 7100's default is to put the moneymakers up front. You want memos and tasks, head to a sub menu. You want messages, phone, calendar, and browser - one click's all it takes. 4) Browser is getting better, but its still got some maturing to do. 5) The backlight is gold. 7290? Not gold. Pyrite, even. This one? Greatness. First time I turned it on I was delighted, and that was at the factory default 60% brightness. I've since turned it down to 50%, but its gold I tell you... 6) Dedicated send and end buttons. So trivial, but so perfect. Cons: 1) Sure would love bluetooth file transfer, too. 2) Doesn't wash dishes. 3) Ringtones are the suck. Games are the suck. Perhaps its that I'm on a corporate account, but I get no love from the various ringtone and games download sites. 4) The LED, it keeps blinking. Why, LED, why?! I have all the secondary notices set to none, and you still blink, LED! Why?!?! Less

Blackberry 7100

Reception is horrible... Very hard to hear a conversation unless you have the bluetooth... People never hear me as well so the mic must be bad as well.. Switched it 3 times and still the same... Drops calls and very bad reception. Not recommended...

Consistently dropped called, extermely poor reception (in areas where other blackberries work perfectly fine), horrendous ear-and-mouth-piece for both listening and speaking into, flawed flawed flawed performance...I mean I can't even use call waiting without dropping both lines. The half-QWERTY keypad is alright but you might want to go for the full keypad...otherwise it beats the purpose of having a blackberry. Address book maintence is poorer than a standard cell phone. I can't short-cut add a number into my addressbook without copying/pasting the number into my address book explictly. Overall...stay away from this piece of junk, wait a couple of months and shell some money for the Motorola Q (the RazorBerry). Less

Pro: Looks 'Cool' Con: Awkward as a phone, hard to get/send email, complicated overall I wanted something where I could answer my email while not at home so I got the Blackberry. I was disappointed 12 hours after I got it because as a phone it is awkward to use. Later I realized I rarely received my email, and I called support a dozen times ~ which led me nowehere. The rest of the functions are somewhat difficult to navigate as well. Finally I gave up. It looks cool, but it is too complicated to use. Never again. Less

worst phone ever

Pro: non Con: poor quality It is near impossible to hold a conversation if there is any background noise. I hate this phone and have never experienced a worse product.
