A brilliant phone.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: BlackBerry Pearl 3G 9105 Sim Free - Smartphone (Wireless Phone Accessory)
BB Pearl 3G is a brilliant little phone. It is light and small. This has been my first BB phone and to be honest I am bowled over. The battery life is amazing for it being a smartphone. It does all your social networking and email job in the best way. BB messenger is a brilliant way to connect to any other BB user anywhere in the WORLD!
The camera is 3.2 MP camera, which is from a by gone generation, but for what it is, it does get the job done. If you have upload the pictures to Facebook and Twitter and you will not be let down on the quality.
One other noticable feature is the alpha numer key pad rather and a conventional QWERTY keyboard which BB seem to have. This allows the phone to be a regular candy bar rather than a "chunky" phone. The speaker phone is loud enough as well. The voice clarity is top notch as well.
The BB app world is being revamped and the developers are being wooed to get them to develop new apps, so on that level it lags behind Android and iOS. The apps currently are expensive, there are free apps though.
Otherwise the phone is simply awesome.

When you start the phone for the first time, it gives you an option to set your language. That is when you can set English and Italian as your preference.
I hope this answers your question.
Sorry for the delay in rpelying.

Yes you can sync the contact with outlook. The only problem is, I don't use this feature, since my contact are with Googlemail. Try this link before you buy and see if you can get grips with the procedure of syncing your contacts. http://crackberry.com/blackberry-101-how-
Also, multiple alarms can be setup as well. http://crackberry.com/quick-tip-setting-m
This site is a very resourceful site if you want to get started with a blackberry. WiFi is good, but because of the size, you will be zooming in and out often, and it might be annoying at times.
If you have the virtue of patience my word of advice would be to wait for few months since Blackberry is coming up with new models which have touch screen and a full QWERY keyboard, and with a new OS called as Blackberry OS 7. From what I know you can use android apps on this OS.
I know it will be expensive handset but you will be using the latest OS and it will be worth the money in long run.
I hope my advice was helpful.
