I brought home december 2010 I used it until february 2017 I love it so much
I had this phone for about 2/3 years and it was pretty incredible, I loved it. Unfortunately though, it white screened on me and its not worked since. Which is a shame as it was probably my favourite phone!
I am desperate to get a smartphone which doesnÂ’t give me pains. I am suffering from kind of unexplainable electro-sensitiveness. The DAS amount doesnÂ’t seem to matter in my case, conversely to the majority of people suffering of electro-sensitiveness. I don't get head aches and serious symptoms like that, fortunately. (for the moment!)
Otherwise I would never plan to use a BB phone! the DAS being very high, as for the Iphones. Most of electro-sensitive people flee BB and Iphones!
The thing, in my case, is that when I touch any smartphone, and even some tablets, it triggers unbearable pains within minutes. The pains last several days. I had to stop then. No choice. I know that it can sounds weird but thatÂ’s it.
in my view, it comes from A +B
A = the sensitiveness of my nerves.
B = the electro magnetic fields, which are generated by either the touchscreen, or-and by the numerous antennas (WIFI, GPS, Bluetooth, NFC sometimes!) that we all hold in hour hands, guys, when using a smartphone!
So, I recently had the idea of getting a non-touchscreen phone : I thought about BlackBerry, then.
I thought that a Bold 9870 could be a good idea, even though I am not sure of nothing. Not sure that the Bold 9780 wonÂ’t give me pains, but I woudl like to try. I did purchase a brand new one and IÂ’m now waiting for the delivery.
I would like to ask several questions to you:
Will I be able to run Skype, for ex., and other basic nice apps despite of the old OS version, which is 5 or may be 6.
What nasty limitations will I experiment for sure?
Is it possible to upgrade the Bold 9780 system, from 5 to 6, if necessary? We are in December 2016!
I have seen the BB Classic in a store one hour ago: for me it is disappointing, because much too big in my hand. The keyboard didnÂ’t drive me crazy too. But I believe that the Bold 9780 is smaller.I read nice reviews.
It is clearly far much better to use a phone with a touchscreen nowadays, of course, but it is forbidden for me as I explained above.
My goal is not too ambitious: If possible, I would like to use a not too big phone...
- Allowing me to occasionally surf on the Internet via WIFI (OK the screen will be small, I know)
- With a good sound in conversation
- May be some basic good apps.
- To send -receive emails. Gmail and others.
- Have a camera in my pocket, which is much more convenient than to have to get my camera with me. It is too big, fragile and expensive. Even though it is a Sony RX 100 one, it is not useful at all, then most of the time I donÂ’t have the camera with me.
I have never used a BB phone but I know very well computers, and other brands of Phones.
Your advice and ideas will be welcome!
