The Bold is definately RIM's best effort to date. Been using mine for a week now and have not experienced the so called weak battery. It lasts for a full day and a half with heavy usage and the wi-fi on.This is about consistent with most smart phones in its class. Boy! the screen/display is awesome. way better than the i-phone's(i have used that too).
The only thing am scared of is that one day the pearl trackball would start misbehaving.I experienced that with my bb 8100 pearl after 3 months! It just stopped scrolling down! Any body had such an experience?
Any thing else i should watchout for? Thanks people.
Does windows recognize as storage device when pluged in usb without software instaled. Or do i need to install any software to access Bold's memory or memory card ?
i will appreciate memory access without need of instaling software.
can anybody help me with how to upgrade my device software, and is there any available upgrade for the BB bold?????
btw I found out how to download windows live, but I cant sign in, it says servie not enabled for this handheld. but I can go browsing. someone please help. thanks
i just bought my BBB, it is so awesome! I love it! but cant seem to connect to my wireless. everytime I enter WEP key and then press next, it always fails to obtain my IP address...it's driving me crazy!!!! can someone please help? thanks!Ive tried doing it manually too.

all you need to do is to set the bb in recieve mode, example
1.go to your media folder select media type, then press the menu button select recieve using bluetooth.

For example. Pair the devices. Then you will need to go into either photos ( if recieving a photo) or music ( if recieving music or ringtone etc.). hit the menu key and you will see the option to recieve via bluetooth. It will only work that way.
i just recieved my bold and can anyone tell me the best place to download videos / music clips in the right file format to watch on the bold.
Patricio, 22 Oct 2008It is possible to buy the Bold 9000 without carrier/operator? And only will link with the carr... moreYes, you can buy a Blackberry directly from RIM but the selection is limited. http://na.blackberry.com/eng/purchase/rim.jsp

Crown, 22 Oct 2008Oh never mind. I just had the BlackBerry rep here (I'm a cell phone salesman). So I checked it... morehey..brother i want 2 buy a new phone gv me names of sum new phones man... budget no probs...i can eaisly afford E90 so budget doesnt matter...plzzz vil b waiting...
it is strage about the headset, very difficult to fix it into your ear ! and also can not make vedio call because it does not have this feature although it is 3 g - but in general it is a very good devise and much advanced than the previous models.
Hi there, just received my BB - very happy so far. Pls help me with basics - 1. How do you mark/unmark items for multiple delete? 2. How do I transfer contacts from my memory card (not Sim) to the phone?
does anybody have their windows live hotmail and facebook going to their Bold? I find mine really lags alot.. Sometimes it comes instantly, sometimes 5-10 minutes later sometimes even up to an hour later. This is VERY annoying.. anybody else having this same problem or know how to solve it.. also has anybody upgraded their OS as yet? any improvements?
I have been using blackberry for the longest time, however I moved to a country, work reasons, that does not support blackberry service. I would like to purchase the Bold and check my email through Wifi. Is this possible without having the Blackberry service? I know that with my Curve, 8300, after unlocking it, I was not able to access the internet; even after input the correct setting. The only way for the internet to work, was to install Opera browser to access the internet but no email.
I love all the applications for the BB and I am thinking of buying any BB with Wifi, if I can access the internet/email though Wifi without having blackberry service agreement; Help please
Crown, 22 Oct 2008Thanks. How do I go back to the open app then? With Nokia I just keep in the menu button.Oh never mind. I just had the BlackBerry rep here (I'm a cell phone salesman). So I checked it all out on her phone. I'm completely sold out on this phone. Now I just have to wait for my upgrade......
