this is a terrible phone. i have had it since may 2012. i have had 2 battery replacements and a totally new handset replacement and now im waiting on a totally new phone replacement as it has the same original problems. the battery life is very poor and the touch screen works when it feels like it. it freezes and turns itself off at will and is not reliable at all. my advice.....DO NOT GET THIS MODEL!!
This is to all the seasoned Berry users.
Could you please let me know whether the GPS works (Google Maps / Berry Maps) with just the BBM activated, and NOT the full BIS services?
Thank you, & appreciate the help anticipated.
I need help, I bought this phone sometime in May and now the touchscreen keeps failing. I have to reboot everytime before it works. Is anyone facing the same issue here? Its very irritating and disappointing after spending much to acquire it....
AnAm, 13 Oct 2012Should i buy blackberry bold 9900 or 9790 please suggest me the good one :) buy the 9900, the 9790 is a rubbish phone, poor battery life and the touchscreen stops working after a few months - you have to keep rebooting the phone for the touchscreen to work...i'm still waiting for the official release for 7.1
i can send no problems at all emails and recieve however when i send an email from the phone the handset is doubling up the text in the email and also the signature at the end of the email ( the section that says sent from blackberry device )
Can you shed some light on how to fix this please,
the screen on my cellphone it getting white, i can not see anything. so i need somebody to tell me what i can to so i can see the everything on the screen.
Brill phone - battery life is not as good as most BlackBerry's but still better than most phones out there - lasts a good 15-18 hours of above-average usage.
BlackBerry Bridge makes this phone fly if you have a PlayBook; and the new firmware update adds support for Personal Hotspotting. A cracking phone for the £290 I paid for it. I'd still rather the 9900, but I'd also rather the extra £175 in my pocket too :)
The battery is one of the worst seen in all smart phones.. blackberry needs to do a lot of work to ensure better batery performance... doesnt last for even one day
I Got my blackberry a month ago, the battery dont last a day, i dont use the internet i dont listen music and downloaded nothing i only use bbm. the touchscreen already giving problems
You are saying the NFC is carrier dependent what does that mean. Because mine doesn't allow me to exchange anything with anyone who has NFC.

I have been using Blackberry 9790 for a month now and it's working great. It has a nice, slim, elegant shape. The touchsscreen is working appropriately. I didn't encounter any problems yet although the battery should last longer.
