I have had my 8350i for about a week now. I figured everyone would want an unbiased review of the phone.
The phone works nice with a Bluetooth headset. Holding this phone to your ear is kinda like holding a brick to your head. The holster that they give with the phone is a bit on the cheap side due to the fact that the phones can still come out of it. You would think they would package a rugged type case for it with what they charge. No way to watch tv unless you have found a few of the select sites that are out there that still have FREE streaming feeds available. I haven’t tried the unit with ORB yet, but I will. Syncing the unit to my home computer was effortless. Configuring email was just as easy. As long as I don’t have Outlook open on the desktop I get a email on the Blackberry that I can read, and delete. You have two options at time of delete. Delete from handset only, or delete from handset, and mailbox.
Finding misc. wallpapers, and ringtones is no problem. I will put a directory up for those that need some ringtones, wallpapers, etc.
Being that I was paying @$80 for service on my IC902, they easily convinced me to switch to the Simply Everything Plan for $99. I won’t have any extra charges now.
What I don’t like about the phone.
Keyboard is a bit smaller than most Blackberry units that are on the market.
The trackball is a bit touchy at times.
Not many themes are available at this point in time.
Sometimes have to pull the battery to “Kick Start” the unit.

Watch for comments on this post, as I will make a comment when I have made the Ringtones, Wallpapers, and Themes available.
