for me 9360 is not that bad at all.. i bought it to a legitimate Blackberry shops with warranty and stuffs.. issue in the battery it can be solve, it depends of our usage.
1. goto 20% of brightness
2. off wifi, blueT if not in use
3. use your social media, pushmails etc.. if necessary (not always)
by doing this 3 dayz max our batts will last..
for me 9360 is a very nice smartphone if you need games, maps, music or just to kill time. buy an iPod or iPad practicality wise. Blackberry is for 2go person only. this is not a PSP consule or a notebook... see the clear picture guyz.. :D

yap jus got the phone n am also havin the same problem with the battery. how do u upgrade the os to a newer version?
Got my BB more than a week ago, and I'm liking the push e-mail, the main reason I opted for it. Battery is not the best, but it's tolerable. For moderate/heavy use (Wifi and Internet), it lasts a full day. For just e-mail and texts, it can last three days. Overall, I guess 9360 is a good phone. The only big disappointment is the camera. It's way, way outdated, notwithstanding it's 5 MP. The cam has no use for me; it's pictures are not worth looking at, much less posting anywhere. My other phone, Sony Ericcson K800i, a 3 MP, which I bought in 2006, creates far better pics. And I'll be keeping my K800i for some snapshots.
i have one\..using it 2g and 3g
i charge my phone 5x a day just for it to be usefull...i hate it

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 220.127.116.118 and it solved the battery and heating issues right away. Because version 18.104.22.1688 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.
