Hay BB users, I have a few queries regarding the 9700 before I take the plunge and buy it.
1) How's the screen visibility in sunlight?
2) Is the keypad comfortable to quickly type on if you have large/thick fingers?
3) How's web browsing? I heard BB isn't that great in browsing. Is this expected to receive the new version of the browser.
4) Finally, would the price drop by a significant amount when the Slider/Magnum releases? (Buying unlocked phone)
the BB9700 is quiet good but for me not much good than N97 only the thing wich is good is the keypad of BB9700
due to wich most people buy this phone only because of look of this phone..................
SORRY THE USERS OF BB9700 BUT THE TRUTH IZZZ TRUTH

karidee11, 04 Mar 2010Hi!
I want to get a Blackberry and have more or less narrowed it down to BB 9700/BB 8900/BB 8... moreIf you are in UK. You can get the phone for a very less price from link below. I saw it yesterday through the Google ad and hope it will be useful for you.
I've had the phone for a month and my only complaint is that the trackpad stopped working (it doesn't click down), but T-Mobile said it's probably defective, so their sending me a new one.

bingo, 04 Mar 2010With the Bold 9700 Onyx is it possible to pick up wifi connection without a data plan? PICK ON... moreYes, in part. Wifi is a hardware feature, it comes built into the phone to be able to search and read wifi signals. But, without the BIS plan, you will only be able to use the internet, and some apps that work with wifi. FB app won't work but the mobile site will. Email won't be pushed but you can go on the web site. Or use an app that is called ShangMail or something like that. If you want a blackberry, its best you get it with a BIS plan.
Was going to buy the 9700, but what put me off was the price. It is a fantastic handset, but when it comes down to the cash... an extra €250 between the 8520 and 9700 it was not worth the few extra features. Only real extra features are 3G a slightly faster processor. Nervously I got the 8520 and am so happy I did not waste the extra cash. If money is no concern 3G and the processor are great, plus the 9700 looks amazing astatically but 8520 is still the better buy for the money, which is always my most important decider for me!
Vondran, 04 Mar 2010Hi out there, which one do you recommend, Bold 9000 or Bold 9700, on the desing I like the 900... morenot really fail but it accumulates dirt which will affect the precision. i am happy to replace my 9000 with this one as an upgrade. track pad is much more better and precise.
ohh and the camera is alooooot more better, its like u have a 5mp on a 3mp shooter.
the body sized shrink a little though still nice in handling.
Hi out there, which one do you recommend, Bold 9000 or Bold 9700, on the desing I like the 9000 but I read some comments that stated that the scroll boll usually fails, on the other hand I don`t like the cheap-like desing of the 9700 but it comes with digital track ball. Please, your feedback is more than welcome
