So, it has been a while but the verdict is in. The Pearl is a great little phone. Despite the shifty small buttons it has run like a champ, and handled nicely a few tumbles down a road or two – clumsy users.
I have been using shortcuts as the keyboard is so small, and have posted the top site I found below. I hope to add a few more interesting links as I try and make the phone just a wee bit better.
