Just purchased the phone. Does anyone know why my mic might be giving me problems. Sometimes people can hear me on calls and sometimes they can't. Is this a setting I can control or does the phone just suck?
I would suggest you go to your vendor's website and upgrade it to the latest firmware, during the upgrade process, you can remove all the "extra" programs that are installed, that'll free up memory.
If someone can tell me how to pair this stupid phone with a bluetooth headset as I've already purchased a second headset and the phone does not recognize any of them. I first thought it was the headset itself and now, I think it's this piece of junk.
Hi: Anyone know how to reset my 7100t mobile? Because i don't know where its 32mb memory is using? Even i checked it in setting, there, everything is on 0kb.
i don't know how to fix mine and everywhere i went to was the same they either told me to call my service provider(useless) or that they can't help me so i was wondering if anyone knew how to fix a blackberry that does nothing but stay on a waiting sign not the homepage, but a blank white page that shows the hour glass
it doesnot play songs and its bluetooth is only capable of voice transfer not data
i love the phone so much it makes things run faster but have one problem how to copy and receive music and videos with my bluetooth
its a good phone but no memory card
i m havin 7100T no prob .. actually 1 -- how can v take its sim card out?
I have had the 7100t for about six months now and have experienced almost no problems whatsoever. The trackwheel developed a bit of a tick where it backs up as you're scrolling down, but that is only rarely. No one has said they can't hear me well, and I was able to intuitively customize the settings by just messing about with it. No camera--that is a drawback, but only for business reasons. All in all, a sturdy and useful product. Feel bad for all you unlucky saps with the horror stories, but that's life.
fares alsagri, this phone is aight, fares al-sagri
had the 7100t...got the wind tunnel complaint from callers, mic went out, phone ended up dead from a ground to handset trama...RIM (Retards Inventing Malarkey)
I signed up to T-Mobile UK nearly a year ago to get the 7100t. Problems straight from the beginning. Bad connectivity, bad connection, people couldn't hear me properly. The best to come. Travelling outside the UK I never got a connection. Tons of calls to CS, but no solutions besides taking out the simcard, cleaning it and putting it back. Finally a couple of weeks a called again and was informed that they now had discovered that this model does not support connectivity outside of the UK. Can you believe this. They are selling a phone which does not work internationally. Compensation? Nill. This Blackberry model is completely crap and T-Mobiles CS as well.
im from Colombia, here in South America and in my country blackberries arent as popular as in the north. Comcel, one of the biggest carriers here is selling them, but they r way too expensive, around 700 dollars for a new one, so i decided to buy a 7100t from a guy who brought it from the US, t-mobile. When i got the phone i unpacked it, and connected the charger... after 3 days of attempts to make the battery work i decided to take it to techincal service, they told me the inside of the phone is ok and they r testing the battery now. The mic doesnt work, i have to yell for people to listen to me, thats pathetic, i also told the guy in the store to fix this, hope he comes out with a solution because i paid lot of money for this phone, and it doesnt even work!! i mean, i havent even been able to test its messaging capabilities because it just doesnt power on!.. very bad phone, DONT BUY IT! i wish i had read this review before getting it :(
after reading all these stories how this phone "sux" and so on I began to question credibility of majority of users here. good thing i got my phone before reading these reviews.
i had my 7100r through Rogers for 2 years by now. this is my second unit as first was sunk in a coffee mug. i am quite happy with the unit as it has everything i need and i don't have to reset it on hourly bases as other PDAs. I would say the phone is great if all you need is a reliable phone, with internet, email and calendar functions. This was a solid business tool for me so far.
I have the 7105t through Tmobile, and this phone is absolutely horrible. The call quality sucks. The email, and text messaging capabilities are great, but again its the phone that sucks. I also have people tell me that it sounds like I'm in a wind tunnel, and don't even try to talk on this phone if there is even an iota of background noise. After a few months I got a replacement, and still had the same problems, I just purchased the Tmobile Dash and I'm praying this works better.
just reading 2 pages of the comments cracks me up! how can this phone get a rating of 6.3 for performance with these testimonials? lol someone from my work place is selling it for 130, im glad i said no! cuz the opinions on this site freaked me out of buying it!
All the 7100 model that i got from rogers (3 or 2 of them) all have the same microphone problem. the caller simply cannot hear my voice. It wastes me a lot of time and headache. the worst thing is that rogers, and blackberry customer service seems doesn't know any thing about this issues. ??? so incompetent!...the one the thing i would say is that. stay away from blackberry 7100 model. otherwise, make sure you test your phone before buy it. regards
I am glad to hear the someone has a postive experience with the 7100t. (I suspect a plant) I am on my 3rd from work and every one of them is crap. This has got to be the worst device I have ever used.
All 3 phones had the mic stop working. Yea, I can use a headset but that is not the point. There is clearly a manufacturer defect on this product yet Blackberry refuses to own up to it even with relentless complaints from users. Seems like a CAL is necessary to get them to listen
For me, this is the last BB product I will ever use. I can get far more functionality with my smartphone w/ wi-fi, get more connectivity, cheaper calls (using VoIP) and no ridiculous roaming charges, better quality and so on....
Seems to me it is only a matter of time before the market wakes up to more effective and less costly solutions that will make BB look like a Kaypro!
i just got this phone the other day, and i love it. i wasnt gonna buy it because of everyone's horror stories, and mine was used. but it's clear, my emails come in, i've got it personalized to the t, and the internet is awesome. just one question, does anyone know where to get free games for this thing???? other than that, the phone is overall awesome
