Description

Stay connected wherever you roam and keep yourself on track for your next meeting with this unlocked, GPS-enabled BlackBerry Pearl 8110 (requires compatible network). The Pearl 8110 continues to offer all the communication features that you've come to expect from Blackberry smartphones, including email served up by the BlackBerry Internet Service and a full menu of messaging options (SMS, MMS, and IM). And it's easy to type emails and messages on the go using the Pearl's SureType QWERTY keypad, which provides word completion, advanced editing, and the ability to learn new words. Other features include a 2.0-megapixel camera with video capture, Bluetooth for both communication headsets and stereo music streaming, MicroSD expansion, digital audio player, speakerphone, and voice-activated commands and dialing. This unlocked cell phone can be used with a GSM network service provider and it provides quad-band connectivity (850/900/1800/1900 MHz). It does not come with a SIM card, and it requires that you provide a SIM card for usage with your selected service provider. This phone comes with a one-year warranty from a third party provider. Phone Features Weighing just 3.38 ounces and just 0.55 inches thin, the Pearl 8110 manages to fit a QWERTY keyboard onto the handset's slim frame. Each button on the keyboard shares two letters and the unit automatically determines which letter is the intended one based on what it predicts you are trying to spell. This unique predictive text technology, known as SureType, makes the Pearl 8110's diminutive size possible. SureType also learns the words you use most often, further enhancing your typing speed. It sports a large 240 x 260 screen that supports over 65,000 colors--plenty of real estate to view your e-mails, Web browser content, messaging sessions, and attachments. The venerable BlackBerry trackwheel has been replaced on this model with an innovative four-way trackball placed below the screen. On the rear of the handheld, you'll find a 2.0-megapixel camera and a self portrait mirror. The handheld's MicroSD memory card slot is located inside the device, behind the battery. There's also a standard 3.5mm headset jack that can be used with the included headset, as well as a mini-USB port for data connectivity. ![enter image description here][1] The Pearl 8110 features an updated visual interface and integrates a new font rendering technology that displays characters with enhanced legibility at even the smallest point sizes. The BlackBerry Browser is further improved with a new "Page View" option that displays a full web page on the screen along with a magnifying glass that allows the user to quickly and accurately point and zoom in on a specific area of the web page. The Pearl 8110 delivers the legendary BlackBerry e-mail experience. With a BlackBerry service plan from your cellular provider, you can receive e-mails instantaneously from up to 10 e-mail accounts (personal and enterprise). With BlackBerry push technology, you don't need to retrieve your e-mail. BlackBerry devices are designed to remain on and continuously connected to the wireless network, allowing you to be discreetly notified as new e-mail arrives. Support is also built-in for viewing e-mail attachments (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, WordPerfect, and PDF formats). If your company has a BlackBerry Enterprise Server installed, you can take advantage of the power of wireless calendar synchronization. Your calendar events are exchanged wirelessly and automatically so that your desktop calendar and BlackBerry handheld calendar are synchronized. All your Outlook meeting requests, changes, and updates are instantaneously synchronized instantaneously with your desktop. Make meeting requests, invite new attendees, and more, all on your Pearl 8110. Users without BlackBerry Enterprise Server support can manually sync with their desktop calendars and contacts via Bluetooth or USB using the included BlackBerry Desktop Software. This phone provides Bluetooth version 2.0 wireless connectivity, and includes profiles for communication headset, handsfree car kits, audio/video remote control, and printing. With the A2DP Bluetooth profile, you can stream your music to a pair of compatible Bluetooth stereo headphones. The integrated media player allows you to create and edit playlists right on the handset. The Pearl 8130 also features a 2 megapixel camera with 5x digital zoom and enhanced flash. The new camera also supports video capture in two resolutions: 240x180 or 176x144 for sharing via MMS.

Well my Blackberry Pearl 8110 that I have had for 5 months is going in the garbage. The constant rebooting during phone calls has become intolerable over the last 3 weeks. When I inquired I was told that it is "outdated" but upgrading to a new Blackberry bold would solve the problem. (Sounds like a marketing ploy but I have no choice) My local store that carries these took my name. I had to go on a waitng list for the next shipments of phones due to the amount of Blackberry Pearl 8110 people hav ... e replaced over the last month, they sell the upgraded phone as fast as they get them in. If you choose to purchase, print out these steps and memorize them, you will be doing this during all the random reboots that occur several times a day. If you think it won't happen to you, at work I immediately found several people who were getting rid of this phone, and several who were forced to get rid of it and replace it at their own cost due to this problem over the last week. This will be your life with this phone: Anywhere from 5-10 minutes into a phone call, it will reboot for 5 minutes, works for two minutes then turns off and reboots again. Then about the 4th cycle, it doesn't come back on, the red light flashes except it is otherwise dead. Take the battery out put it back in and it will come on and reboot for another 5 minutes. Maybe you can talk for 5 minutes and the next reboot begins, your call is dropped, it has a red flashing light and dead phone, take the battery out and put it back in and watch the dead phone flash the red light (they only thing that works) for better than 5 minutes until it comes on and reboots again. Today it did this for 35 minutes where I was unable to use it for the entire 35 minutes. For someone who travels in by myself, I can't have a phone that talks to the mothership more than me. It has definitely gotten worse over the last 3 weeks. Sometimes it will work OK for a couple of hours but it is unpredictable. It otherwise works great. I even turned the data off before I make a call and turn it off and on thinking it will be happy and work for more than 10 minutes. WRONG! I do not have the time to spend a day making phone calls and replacing this phone and neither did anyone else I found when we compared notes. More >

i have been using this phone for the past 4 months in south africa, and it works perfect on our networks. the gps, graphic and internet capabilities are brilliant to say the least. the only problem is when you are changing the SIM Card, the slot tends to be too tight hence taking out your SIM Card can be a mission otherwise i give it a thumbs up!
