It is a great phone and i really reccomend buying it, it's not laggy and the BBM is perfect
Eliman , 12 Mar 2014Same thing goes for me ...the phone looks promising but itz a crap phone no jokes ...it hangs ... moreI AGREE. CRAPPPPP PHONE!!! restarts and wipe daily!!!! Crap crap crap.... will never support BlackBerry again. When u ask service provider f help they always want update the version and on top of that charged u f back up...
I just switched from a 9300 to this phone and it is GREAT. The BBM button, the camera with flash, touchscreen and button input is an improvement duly noted. Analogue style FM radio with digital interface is wow.
Reminds me of my first gen Blackberry 7290 with its big screen and ideally spaced keys.
As a media player this phone rocks with mp3 and mp4 playback.
The Multicast app is a great addition along with Foursquare as the default app complimenting the 5MP camera with flash.
This is the most popular Blackberry model in South Africa. Thanks Canada

hI frend, all old bbm phone is work on normal setting, but some normal setting is required,
go to on, setting--device--advance setting--tcp ip--click on apn setting enabled--apn:.... (fill your operator's access point name (APN).
and enjoy by your normal 2g/3g plan
in all blackberry mobile phones

This device fits in the already existing blackberry user market. I have a 8520 and I have used it for years, it comes free with work and free sim. My company has a BES 5. I asked my IT if they were planning on implementing a bes10 and they said no plans at the moment. This 9720 allows me use the new phone features and still use bes 5 for my work emails.
I don't recommend this phone if you want to install load of apps as its more for business, where you would have just a few essential apps.
I just picked up a refurbished one from ebay for £75, which makes it an even better deal.
It si the worts phone ever jumps a lot reboots when it whants atleast 5 times a day wipes alot I would rather take the oldest nokia there is than this phone it is sh*t
Its for the first time I m using BB and I just think maybe let me try it I started getting problems where I bought this BB9720 I cannot view anything and I send E-Mail to them to came and collect it I advice not to buy the so call BB its useless
people once again do not overload with apps to avoid restarting because it has only a 512mb internal memory if you want to install many apps go for atleast 8gb internal memory..i've been a user of blackberry for 5 yrs from lowend to highend units and i have no problem encounter whatsoever..
I was so happy when I got my BB 9720. However very soon I got frustrated because it freezing when I take a picture. Then it started restarting itself a few time a day and some times just plainly switched off. Also I got irritated by the touch screen that is wonderful when you use the phone "in the house" but if you put it in your pocket it phones, bbm's, whatsapp and got o every imaginable website all by it self. And you cannot switch it off. Even if you lock the screen with a pin it still takes pictures of the inside of your pocket.
I took the phone in and after a three week wait I got a new one. The touch screen still made me scream, but at least it was not restarting. This phone also freezes sometimes when I take photo's and it now decided it will not connect to a PC with a USB cable. Nothing helps so it will have to go for repairs as well. Another 3 weeks without my phone. 6 weeks out of 4 months without something I am paying for. What a piece of crap. Everyone in my house hold has a BB none of them have problems only the "newest"one. I truly hate this phone. I will rather use a Nokia 3110. At least its reliable.This is my first and most definitely my last Blackbery.

It is the worst phone ever it is slow and the touch screen does what it wants my opinion do not buy it
Had this phone for three months now, and it gets worse every day, always rebooting, always crashing. tried to reset to default and the same s**t continues. Really good for the first month apart from constant memory errors and now this.
I f**cking hate this phone, the sooner Blackberry go out of buisness the better!
I had the BB 9300, which I feel was a great little phone, now I use the 9720 and I have absolutely nothing but praise for it. Personally I feel the camera could've been better and a secondary camera woul've been even more so, but for what I've experience, over the last few months, I can only say it's a lovely user-friendly phone, with very few problems.
My gf has the 9790, which is more than double the price of the 9720, but has so many complaints an is considering changing to the (in my opinion) much better 9720.
All in all, it might be a low to middle end phone, but I get nothing but high end service an satisfaction from it.
