AnonD-232365, 10 Feb 2014Exactly. It is crab. Slow. Outdated. It feels cheap. And it keeps on rebooting.it depends what You did to eat before you start using it the very first time and up to now. i am using it and it is fluent and friendly
this is my opinion of the Blackberry 9720 which i congratulate RIM for accormodating the low and middle class people with a low budget phone:
I have this phone for a week now and it treats my services with ease it's friendly to use for a low budget phone and with it's not so complicated specs.
I was using Curve 8520 since October 2011 and upgrading to the 9720 4 days ago I did not experience any errors at all up to now which i did the following to make sure i have my personal items from my trusted 8520.
1. I re-registered on blackberryID; protect and created password protection -which RIM will make you are that that your services from the other device will be discontinued.
2. opened blackberry desktop and saved data from my 8520.
3. and then choose an option to transfer data to a new phone (this will take few moments.)
4. go through the e-mails set-up passwords and your apps to run(all your mails and features how you set them up on the old phone will be there like e.g. fonts style/size and all the apps.)
for Me as a low budget phone I upgraded to I find no hussle at all and the keypad oh it's like haven, though it's touch screen (it doesn't pop-up the key pad, which I don't like and it's a bonus for Me.) and you can touch your way through the web pages and move them left or right like pages even though some apps makes u touch the screen as the track-pad don't go to their taskbars.
I set it up to meet my daily use under All menu: I created folders where I will move all my e-mail icons into, the apps and the phone features icons according to their catigories how i want them and all those I use alot i marked them as favorite so that i can find them under one page of favorites and then unmark the other manu panel pages -All; Frequent; Media and Downloads. Take notice of the on board memory and try to reduce the apps and the fun part is that the phone has an app for that to notice and it pops up the apps which you can move to the SD memory or the ones you can remove.
So far I cannot judge it otherwise except that i am happy with it and the lightness it's not heavy i can use it with one hand friendly or with both unlike the other big phones which forces to be used with both hands or put it flat on the table or lap and start typing.
Please guys don't compare this phone with other phones because i think it was designed as low budget phone to meet the level of the low and middle market class it is unique and has it's own way on how to approach it. I think it will be suitable for those who don't expect too much out of a phone but for simple things to meet their daily needs.
Advise: go to the store fiddle with the demo on display and see if you will can manage that through out your daily life that's what i did and i was curious to find out what it can do more. i came on GSM and learned the specs i noticed it's a Curve 8520 x2 and I liked it becuase i just can't find myself flirting with a different brand even though i have a Samsung pocket which i like too for other reasons of cause.

dynamicpeter, 22 Jan 2014D phone is nice , jst dat I experience hanging problem on it seriously, and also wen I have a ... moreThese phones are a complete waste of time and money. My phone too hangs on a daily basis and shuts down all of a sudden and reboots itself. Complains that there is no memory available when I have all my downloads stored to my 32Gb sd card. I'm getting rid of it and going Samsung Galaxy instead.
The problem with this phone is that beside the touchscreen (which is not very usefull)is the same phone from 2011. (no better camera, or processor, or display)
