I have this phone one month and by far the BEST phone I have ever had and I have had MANY. No problems except battery life but ofcourse with all the applications on it..lasts about 3 days. I CANNOT say one bad thing about this phone..
It was between HTC and this.. and I am 100 percent happy i chose my bold..
GO FOR IT GUYS!!!U wont be sorry.
good but...still prefer XPERIA..bold only wins on its BBM....
Xperia is the best...
Definitely the best smartphone ever if we're talking business.The chat,the web,voice recording and the superb sound,the browsing is even faster bec of wifi and RIM has recently upgraded it.The problem is step by step being solved as you become used to it.This is my best pal for the meantime,can't live w/o it.

iphone is not a business phone, its more of a multimedia device where as blackberry is for business purpose mainly providing you access to the push email technology.
bocap, 10 Apr 2009what's the different beetwen QWERTY keyboard & QWERTZ keyboard? a QWERTY keyboard is the standard for keyboard for the English language, while a QWERTZ keyboard is the standard for the German language. the mayor difference is lying in the layout of the keyboard. note that the keys for the letter 'Y' and 'Z' have been swapped.
Del, 09 Apr 2009Horrible battery performance. My battery doesn't even last for 24hrs. Have to charge every day.I really dont know about that. My sis and I have the bold and we use it the fullest. From chatting to emailing to listening to music and watching videos and it does last us a whole day.

First off thank you mike for relpying i thought noone was watching! Now i was connected with the mobile network and my wi-fi at home and that was the only time i was using the web and still when i went to check my bill they told me i had GPRS charges. Now i tryied taking the tick off the mobile network and had the wi-fi turned on and yes i was connected to it coz in manage connection i had wi-fi ticked and right next to it its my wi-fi's name with green letters but like that i can't use the web(internet). What i have to do to fix it? Is it something with the settings? Please help me out mike i've had my bb bold for a week now n i didn't manage to sleep so far coz of this :)
P.S. In manage connections when mobile network is ticked next to it its the mobile network's name in green letters and next to that there is a green tick.
When my Wi-fi is ticked next to it its my wi-fi's name in green letters but next to it there is no green tick like in mobile network there's only a white -
Why is that? Is that a problem? Please help me :)

Both have superb screens, th curve has a slightly better camera but, for me, the bold wins because it has 3G connectivity, whereas the curve only has GPRS

Bear in mind that that the phone will always look for the fastest connection, so if you are connected to wifi, it will use that, not the mobile network. otherwise, go to the menu, then "manage connections" and take the tick out of "mobile network", but you wont receive calls or texts. you could always put a data plan on your contract tho O_o
For all people ho want to buy a BB take BB bold 9000 belive me ,it`s a nice phone and it`s perfect for Videos and sound , and wath is best have WiFi, and a nice Browser

Jackson, 04 Apr 2009Why on earth have GSM Arena not review this phone?! It's been out for nearly a year, they have... moreI share your sentiments and feel the same way!!! :-( Was just thinking the same thing earlier. Well in my opinion the Bold is the best BB out there now and i love it... hope that helps a bit ;-) I have a Nokia E51... which I love of course... but all my friends have a BB :-( so... I think I may get the Bold later this year.
