Hi I need to get a replacement phone as my Pearl 8120 is starting to fall apart (the roller wheel button has broke and it is only held by tape). It is over 5 years old after all!
I am trying to find an equivalent phone for my needs - I am very used to the way the keys are aligned on the Pearl phone and the instant access it gives for tasks and notes + multitype has become second nature to me.
It seems neither my provider nor RIM can source an 8120. A couple of years back I tried the curve and didn't like it due to the small keys. After that I tried an Android phone but I cannot deal with touchscreen.
Does anyone have any recommendations? Thanks

If you're looking for a physical keyboard from BlackBerry, your only options at this point are the Bold or the Curve (legacy devices) or the Q10 or Q5 (BB10 devices). The Pearl is no longer available unless you can find one second-hand.
I hope that helps you.
