    If Digicel does not launch a 4g network then there is NO USE for this phone other than on a wifi

    Honestly why have 700 usd phone on a 2g network where you can’t use 75% of its features?

    Wake up. Blackberry is dead in the rest of the world. I suggest that you investigate Samsung Galaxy SIII (best phone out there), or the Apple Iphone.

    this thing costs $599 US unlocked according to most sources. Right off the bat Blackberry burying themselves. I mean iPhone 5 costs only fifty dollars more. Way too expensive man. And according to the reviews, its a huge leap from previous bb’s but in comparison to Android phones and the iphone, it still has much less to offer.
