> In reply to Azizah. @ 2010-06-17 13:48 from fu@j - click to readThe Bold 9700 is GSM only and uses GSM 3G. The Bold 9650, aka Tour2, is a world phone. The Tour line was pretty much an update for the 8800 World Edition CDMA phones, which is why they were called World phones. The Storm also had this option built in. The SIM slot is for when you leave your country, or unlock the phone to use on a GSM carrier. It still is sold mainly as a CDMA phone, which means it doesn't need the SIM card to operate and runs on 1xEV which is CDMA 3G. There are 2 speeds, REV-A and REV-O (I think that's what they're called) and the fastes is REV-A.
The 9700 is built strictly for GSM networks. But, the only advantages this "Bold" has over the 9700 is more internal mmemory (512mb vs 256mb) but that will soon be evened out because there was a 9700a being released with the same amount of memory.

> In reply to BB @ 2010-04-27 19:27 from ixTA - click to readIs it a GSM phone or CDMA or both? In comparison to 9700 under 3G it also has HSPDA 2100 aside from CDMA/EVDORevA 800/1900 and the 9700 has HSPDA 850/1900/2100 and HSPDA 900/1700/2100. What does this mean? Does it use the same network as 9700 + another network?

> In reply to BB @ 2010-05-02 09:55 from ixTA - click to readHey! Seems u know much. Is it a GSM or CDMA or both? + when I compared, there was a difference in OS, CPU. U said it uses CDMA/EVDO network but it also mentions HSDPA 2100 (9700 has HSPDA 850/1900/2100 and HSPDA 900/1700/2100). I don't understand all these specifications. Can 9650 do all that 9700 can do? What are the shoertcomings in relation to 9700?

> In reply to Ansh @ 2010-06-10 12:46 from 2Zbb - click to readThe name was changed before it was released for unknown reasons. The most common belief is that it was to avoid running into more issues with Tour users, being that the Tour had a lot of issues everywhere. They were already pissed at having their device reach EOL less than a year after release. Also, now the CDMA users can have a Bold as well, being that the Bold series is top-notch compared to other models.

BBs are usually associated with swift and secure emailing services. Recent blackberries are great with social networking also. However Everything else is a plus on BB. I use a 9630 tour and i swear by Blackberry. Its the best ever. But my priorities are different. The Iphone is much more fun. The screen is fantastic(the BB is as good)..the apps/games/OS is mindblowing and there are a lot of aftermarket tweaking that you can use to customise ur Iphone. So go for either and you would not regret. Have a look at the HTC desire also..It took my breath away, definitely my next phone !!
