Product Description

This Blackberry was released in 2006 and whilst it is BBM compatible it does not have a camera. It is a great buy at this price but if you are looking for a more up to date Blackberry then please check our store for the 8900 or 9000. The Blackberry 8700 is a colossal hard wearing and sturdy mobile phone giving you all the connectivity you need whilst on the move with Bluetooth data transfer and quad band connectivity for world wide coverage. It gives you a full html browser, email, instant messaging, SMS and MMS all easily composed using its full qwerty keyboard. At this fantastic low price this is a great entry level mobile phone which will show you what Blackberry phones are all about without spending hundreds on one of the newer models.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blackberry 8700 17 April 2012
By Simon w
Verified Purchase
These are fantastic basic Blackberry's- they are rugged big enough not to lose easy to operate and although cant access the apps of the more up to date one do exactly what they are supposed to do. I actually traded down from a blackberry curve to one of these because of their simplicity- ideal for those of us who don't like fiddly gadgets

4.0 out of 5 stars No problem! 11 July 2009
Verified Purchase
The reviews on this product seemed confusing. There was a review describing one company as giving poor service and the product being sub-standard, but the company was not directly mentioned by name. I purchased a second hand, no SIM blackberry 8700 from Technical Progress and am extremely happy with my phone! It arrived promptly, and works fine! Just to put the record straight.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth recommending 28 Jan 2012
By Dr Reg
The two BlackBerry 8700 Sim Free smartphones (Grey)are excellent. They are the best purchase I made last year. I will recommend the phone to anyone needing Blackberry phones. When another opportunity arises, I will get more for friends.

4.0 out of 5 stars Showing its age but a great basic device 3 Aug 2012
Pros

Can be used for full Blackberry Services
Dirt Cheap
Great Keyboard
Very Good Screen
Audio is perfect
Very loud clear ringtones/messagetones
Excellent Battery (up to 7 days)
Bluetooth
USB Charging

Neutral

Speed - although lags are very few and far between
Size - but it isn't huge and in fact is quite compact even for a 2006 device

Cons

No HTML support in emails (shows as codes)
Software is ageing but does the job (and in fact is very well thought out)
No GPS (if you need such a thing)
Does not show USSD responses from my (Russian) operator in Native Language (very annoying but won't affect 99% of folk)

5.0 out of 5 stars What a lovely phone 2 Jan 2009
The phone itself is really stylish, It looks quite expensive as well. Depending on how much you buy it for you can bag yourself a bargain.

I bought the phone only 2 days ago and have not explored it fully yet.

The phone is easy to use, it has a lovely keyboard which might take you time to get use to, it took me about 2 hours before i was away texting.

It has useful aps like blackberry messenger and blackberry maps.

I will try and update the review when i have seen and used all the features!

Most of the amazon market place sellers are selling them much cheaper then i got it! 40! WOW
