I've used this  Blackberry™ Torch for nearly 2 weeks now. So far, I'm very satisfied with this phone. Because u can either use the touchscreen or not using it at all to access all of your needs on a  Blackberry™ smartphone. For the processor speed, is average. Not fast nor slow. Average.
Flash animation is not playable. Maybe in the upcoming upgrade OS, RIM will fix this.
Capture It application won't work on capturing web pages. Maybe upcoming version of Capture It will fix this.
The "edit autotext" feature still got bugs. Hopefully the upcoming software can fix this.
Hmm.... What else?
Battery, I need 2 of them for a day use.
Battery type : FS-1.
That's for today.
But, so far ... So good ..
Although so many minor issues, but still acceptable. Considering this is still a new phone, still got minor issues for sure. But I believe, RIM will make a perfection out of it as time passes.
stephan, 13 Nov 2010yes, it has an "alert for" option - though i don't use itThanks stephan
After using it for a week.. I find the lock button feels kind of soft. Often accidentally hit on it after locking. Right "End call" or the power on/off button sink in a little and slider feels slightly loose. I wonder if it's abnormal?
yes u can go on youtube was on there yesterday on my tourch u just have to commect to wifi or 3G
has any 1 dropped the torch (by accident of course)and is it still workin?i know 1 person whose torch split into 2 pieces after slipping frm his hand
can we play the videos,posted on Facebook and Youtube,as I'm using BB from last 03 yrs. One thing which really bugs,that when you wanted to watch videos from Facebook/Youtube and you are not able to, however any mid range phone from SE or NOKIA can do that. RIM/BB pls lookinto this and comeup with some solutions. Otherwise BB rocks...........
this phone has the good appearance but i dont like the way it works, the 9700 is a true blackberry, furthermore, the 9780 is the 9700 on steroids.
