Its a very stylish and sleek phone with a 5mp camera and flash for those of you who think it doesn't have a flash. I've had it for 2 weeks now I must say I had the problems too. But switching to 2g and switching off d gps, made the battery last longer! Overall its a very good phone at a very good price...

Why can't I update mine? It says, "no updates available"

May I just say, this phone is great, but could have been EXCEPTIONAL if the battery is good. It can only last for, I guess, 4-5 hours, medium use.

I don't understand..... This model has a great graphics, compared to the other models like torch 9800, and good os, with great speed! But why did they let the battery go down? The battery capacity is 1000 mAh. Obviously, the 1000 mAh battery can't take a 480x360 graphic compressed, a 800mHz processor, and an OS 7 (if it may contribute to the topic) into 1 day. AT LEAST ONE DAY! It would be better if they upgrade it to, at least, 1300 mAh. The old curve 9300 has higher battery capacity with 1100 mAh, if I'm not mistaken. I just don't get it.

I hope RIM will be aware and upgrade this.

just download the official update for BB Curve 9360.
and install on the computer and delete the vendor.xml.
after delete, just update through BlackBerry Desktop Manager, and it will update your phone.

try it man....

for those who has issues with battery life on their 9360's or any other b.b. simple solution is to cycle charge your battery 16 hours for the 1st 3 charges upon receiving your handset... happy new year!!

Regarding freeze, most handset will freeze sometimes if you don't maintain it very well in terms of free RAM, removing bad applications, restarting regularly, and stuffs like that. My 9780 works just fine...

I have had this handset for 1 week..and despite its sleekness and impressive features i must say the battery life is absolutely horrific. it will barely last half the day(4-5hrs) and i have to take the charger to work. really disappointing as the handset is excellent in almost every other aspect.

if ur runnin facebook or youtube via wifi/carrier u will end up with 3rd degree burns in ur hand thats how hot it get from memory card area of 9360 and battery can easily drain in 1 to 2 hour if u start using it like a PC.but its slick and attractive and u certianly will be notice by carryin it despite its look dont get carried away and attend a call cause that can also cause some liener kind of fracture.

Guys! Please help with the battery! :( it only last for about 5 hours. My brightness is set to 10 with 10 seconds of backlight time-out and auto dimming of light. My ring tone volume in Normal profile is 5 but I usually use Silent as my profile. I also turned off the location thing on my location settings. I DID EVERYTHING! I PROMISE! But still, the battery only last for 5 hours with slight use of internet (facebook, ubertwitter, BBM), and texting. PLEASE HELP GUYS!!! PLEASE!! :( I have 1 question though, how to set the screen contrast? Can't find it in $y scree display settings. :/ oh! And I have to charge twice a day. :/ PLEASE HELP ME WITH MY BATTERY GUYS! :(

have bought d BB 9360 a last week. design wise d phone gets 10 on 10. performance is also good. But d keypad is quite hard when u think abt d price at which u bought it. battery life is also not dat impressive. max battery life is 2 days(with min usage). Trackpad needs some improvement. Overall a nice buy taking into consideration d sleek look n features available in d given price. A 7 on 10 from me for BB 9360.

> In reply to nada akram @ 2011-12-18 21:02 from fv8J - click to readGuys turn off the GPS location in setting and set screen contrast to 30 or even 10 due to the graphics of the screen will amaze you in away u'll not notice the difference but this will make your battery last for 2 days even more.
