Yes, the invention of the bold 9000 was a turning point in blackberry technology. I had 2 and both performed better than any other smartphone I ever owned. I've had HTC's, Palms and others too.

DivX (avi) doesn't work on my Bold... it plays the sound but the screen goes pink. Xvid and mp4 works fine, any suggestions why this is and how to fix this??

I am getting mine next week and looking at the specs of this beautiful phone , I have to be honest and say that the camera with only 2mb is very poor. I would have thought at least for a phone like this they could have given it 3.5 mb ?

what also worries me , is how about a cover for this phone ? does a person get them or not ? I wouldn't want my phone to get scratches ...

BlackBerry has BlackBerry Messenger the others dont have similar feature, and not Msn, skype, Similar's are not the same. BB owners know what i mean

FM radio is not an advantage.... like, who under 80 years old listens to FM????? Who needs the power drain for a worthless feature? This phone can get internet radio if you can't rip enough MP3s.

I work for a phone shop and i have had the bold since release and i love it. However saying that i have had nothing but problems, replaced 3 times and currently away for repair. Would suggest if you are after good internet and excellent sound quality yet not for the every day phone.

The new Curve is also a brilliant phone yet more reliable.

BB is smart choice... you can change BB bar signal into numeric signal.
I have read from http://greenbydiamond.com/wordpress/?p=615

1. Press and hold ALT, then type ‘NMLL’. Fifth line signal will be directly changed to indicate the number of units of dBm.
2. Number of -45 to -85 indicates strong signal. When the number exceeds the -85 to -100, it means the signal will be weak.
3. To restore the display signal lines, just do the same. Remember: Press and hold ALT, then type ‘NMLL’.
