  • The phone kills the battery faster than data. Get the expanded battery pack. Don't use fancy (large files) graphics files as screensavers. Put some 3M non-skid tape (grip-tape for skateboarders) in small strips on the sides and near the ESC button for a little extra haptic response. Learn how to make the most of your shortcuts, and your own shorthand.

    Oh. And ALWAYS make sure that people who SMS you SIGN their messages with a phone number or initial or something.

  • Ive had the device for a while now and i've yet to find a flaw. Other then not having fancy ring tones, this is a beatiful device. Great reception, great clear sound, easy to use. Just a beauty.

  • -reception is great
    -battery lasts several days even with the batt meter at 15% it lasts a whole 11 work day
    -color screen is bright and vibrant
    -many short cut keys make it fast and easy to navigate (however these keys take some time to master)
    -in short this unit is probably the best RIM may offer in comparison to the 7100 with it's hard to use key layout

  • Excellent device, though a bit rough around the edges. A few gripes. The email app is quite limited. Although I can sort by name or subject, I can't seem to sort by a combination, for example if I was waiting for email from Joan and John, I have to monitor the inbox or to set the search to either Joan's or John's address, but not both.

    The other gripe refers to battery life. I receive about 600 emails per day, and battery life is usually at most two days before the low battery indicator pops up.

    It would be wonderful if a future Blackberry incorporated the touchscreen. After using the Palm PDAs, it is really irksome to have to scroll and alt scroll to edit my text.

    P.S. I do not use the phone functions, so I cannot advise on that.

  • Great device. Phone sounds great. Email is great. Few minor complaints: it's easy to accidentally hang up a call because the esc button is where you would normally grip the phone. Also, ringer selection is limited... only monophonic beeps, no fancy tones. Otherwise, quite a powerful device.

  • Slow when accessing other applications, missed calls that go straight into voice mail, I dont know if this is the network or device. Bluetooth works very well, picks up the headset every time. I like the feel of the 7280 better.
