Had a bit of trouble and could not think why? Anyhow after a visit to shop my BB BIS account takes 48 hrs to activate ..Just 20 minutes ago i got through and its been activated,,Now done a hard reset and setting it up again..I use a free utility called flashlight by Jarrad company i think and assign it to left conveniance key so got instant torch,,i assign right conveniance key to camera for instant access.
When i had torch 9810 i missed left conveniance key because it does not have one..I now need shazam and horn to complete my usefull app set up..Dont know yet if these are available but will search later tonight..BB still has a away to catch up the app world is painfully slow even on my laptop ..Also BB does not have much free stuff and the fee payable for some apps if laughable.
Anonymous, 14 Mar 2012Thanxx bryn !!! I am just confused becuz i am a user of nokia presently and dont know much abo... moreI have been Nokia symbian fan since Nokia 3650 and only had BB about a year.I had E72 for 14 months and wanted to upgrade to E6 but no auto-focus so thought i will go for BB 990 but that had no auto-focus...So i hung on to my E72 and tried iphone and samsung galaxy range but hate full touchscreen.I really loved my first BB the 9105 but i found the touchpad very awkward to use but it was a great smartfone and long battery.
So i have the 9780 for now which is second hand and its great to have real buttons back..I am my money to try the new QNX BB when they arrive ..I got my BB 9780 for 135 GBP.Its got a few scratcheon it but the camera lens is OK..The BB 9780 is still selling for 370 GBP here in UK which is still a lot of money for a smartfone a year old.
I'm wanting to choose btw the BB bold9780 and the touch 9900. Which would you guys recommend. Seem to be quite a few negative comments on the touch. Is the battery life really that bad and excuse my ignorance, but what exactly is the auto focus that it doesn't have and why is it so NB. Thanks

I am just confused becuz i am a user of nokia presently and dont know much about BB , now i hope i will get 9780 becuz it have good specs and interesting custom cases for dashing looks !!! :P
Anonymous, 12 Mar 2012Guys which is better 9380 or 9780 or 9790I have gone for 9780 because its cheaper and got auto-focus..I was in your position for about 1 month going round and roud on which to buy..
If you go for 9790 it has poorer battery life and poorer audio..The 9780 is so much cheaper and more solid a device in all categories..The 9810 torch was another contender but it is a bit heavy but ticks EVERY box.
I immediately ruled out the new 9900 with poor batter and NO auto-focus..Its up to you how you use your BB and whats more essential to you..If you just want BB messaging and email the 8520 was the best selling smartphone in the UK last year and cheap as chips..
I did have your dialema but think i made the right choice before BB goes QNX but in the end its up to YOU.
i rlly like this cell phone. i had the best experience with this phone,. and also the nokia 8800 issa great phone to deal with too.

JOHN LEE, 08 Mar 2012I accidentally pour water on the keypad of my 9780. Screen is still working but not the keypad... moreyes it can be replaced!!Blackberry does it for free if you havent dropped your phone,if youve dropped it you can stil send it in and they will replace it take it to your service provider but beware its very expensive i fixed just my track ball/cursor cost me R400 but it is replacable(took 3 weeks)
I accidentally pour water on the keypad of my 9780. Screen is still working but not the keypad and trackpad. Can this still be fix? Any1 experience same thing?
Why not black berries have skype. Does any one know if I can install and use skype on this phone without being restricted to a particular operator. Blackberry people this sucks, shame on you. Dont you know this had been the major reason people are not buying BB and going for Iphone
which one model is better between BB 9780 & BB 9800? i had confuse to choose either one of this hp..
shir_lee, 13 Feb 2012My 9780's battery can only last for a day even though I've switched to "2G" option, ... moremaybe u didnt charge the phone more than enough when u first bought and use it..new phones must be charge for like many many hrs then u can use it..sometimes used up all d battery life first then charge it for many many hrs..to prolong battery life. also turn off d apps if not used instead of let it running,,
