I've been using my Blackberry Curve 9360 for two weeks and I must say that this is a great phone. At first, I encountered the issues that were posted here like continous reboot, short battery life, heating issues, etc. I found the solution to these issues from the forums that I found on the internet. I updated my OS to version 7.1.0.258 and it solved the battery and heating issues right away. Because version 7.1.0.258 has a battery saving option that extends the battery life. Now, my phone lasts more that 24 hours with average calls and texts, Facebook and Blackberry Messenger from time to time and browsing the internet. Also, with the continous reboot issue, you just need to re-install the OS of your phone. Try to search for "how to repair a nuked blackberry" and that will take you to the solution for the continous reboot.

In short, I can say that this is a great phone if you know how to use and tweak it to achieve its full potential.

its really a good phone but if you are convinced with the below points

1.have to carry the charger or data cable along with the phone - because battery life is worst

2.use only in cool climates - battery will get hot very soon

i never seen this kind of battery life in any of the phones

please dont buy this phone.....

thanks in advance...

Facing battery problem. I Have to charge battery in every 4 Hrs. Phone got hang when I used the 8GB micro SD card. As per specification phone have to support upto 32GB, but the phone didn't support. Am also facing the problem of overheating the battery. Overall my experience is not good with this handset. Earlier I used 9300 n I don't have any problem with that phone.

Anyone had a problem with overheating of the battery? I just gave my 3rd one in as an "out-of-box failure" today.Now I'm actually scared to take another 9360. What if I should have the same problem out of the 7-day OBF guarantee. Any advice???

Its a nice phone but the battery sucks and i even upgraded the software to 7.1 and still the battery sucks. My old phones lasted 5 days but this one like a day and a half maybe. If anyone has any suggestions on how i can make my battery last longer please inform me thanks.
