Please read if you are considering purchasing this phone as I would like to go through the ups and downs about this phone.
Right, setting up the phone is absolutely no problem whatsoever, it is easy to use, the qwerty keypad makes it easy to type, which makes it easier to use BBM, it also keeps you informed with all your social networking sites and applications. These are mainly the good points about this phone.
Myself and my friends who have this phone have had this problem, the scroller stops working, I suggest you insure this item just in case this happens to you. Also it is quite easily damaged by water, when my Curve 9300 broke the 2nd time after the scroller issue, I had a problem when I was walking listening to music while walking in the rain, my phone then stopped working a few hours later. Which was a real issue. I have had this phone just over 6 months and I have already had TWO issues with it, I do most of you will take this into consideration. Before I bought my 9300, I had a Curve 8520, which I found much better, which didn't crash as much when I used BlackBerry App World, even though it's cheaper, I would suggest you purchase the 8520.
The only good thing about this phone is the 3G, that is all.
Thanks for reading, please consider my review when purchasing this BlackBerry model.
