    I've been thinking of switching from my 8130 pearl to the 8830 but I don't think I know anyone else that has it around here ( I guess that's a good thing...) Anyway... I need advice... What are some pros and cons about this BB. Any feedback I would appreciate it ! Thanks in advance.

    I've had mine for about a month now and can't think of a single con. The keyboard is amazing the email and sms works great. The internet is pretty fast. I would deffinitley recomend this phone as long as you aren't looking to take pictures!

    Only thing I can say is the memory - it sucks, other than that, it's a BlackBerry in every way.

    Memory and for some, the lack of a camera. Otherwise it is the best phone for business use. I highly recommend upgrading to a 4.5 OS if allowed.

    I personally love the 8830, i got one about a month ago. I had wanted to get one for awhile and found one for a really good price so i made the purchase. I have other berries so the lack of a camera doesnt really matter to me. I did update to OS 4.5 and it works amazing. I truthfully dont have anything what so ever negative to say about the 8830, im sure you will enjoy it.

    The onboard memory is much less than other BB's

    True there is less memory than other BB, but it has been more than enough for me. I've had my BB for over a year and i'm looking into the Niagra if it ever drops!
