It doesn't have T9 because it has a FULL keyboard layout.
T9 is only usefull for the traditional numpad phone keyboards where you have 3 letters per key, and it predicts the word you are trying to type.
I still got a Curve 8320, was my first BB, had to get used to the keyboard small keys, but now typing goes very fast ;-)

Sorry, not even close to my HTC Touch Cruise which is an "old" phone now. Can't imagine how powerfull the newer HTC serie mobiel phones.
I used to buy phones all the time and people used to make fun of me for this reason. But when i bought the Bold i cant find a better phone:p so anyone who is thinking of buying this phone DONT HESITATE!!
Hi all can some one help me for getting T9 text active with this phone..well such nice and phone but this feature is missing in this ...why ??? is there anyone who has checked ??
The beeest phone I ever had!I feel blessed when I got it before they temporarily haulted it for sale in Japan bec mine has no promblem at all.I also have ipodtouch subscribe to wifi but the typing is killing me but using the BOLDs keyboard is really amazing.The picture screen and the sound is very good too.Im glad I got the BOLD over iphone.I'm realy enjoying every moment of it as I continue to discover whats still in store in this wonderful smartphone.

Anonymous, 19 Mar 2009hi guys..using the bold for last 10days...its aussome..how long does ur cell battery last...?m... moreHi Buddy,
It's not your Blackberry Bold handset only, I too find the battery life not that good.
I don't use my Bold to listen to music, so mainly I am only using for sms/txt, emails, internet, blackberry instant messenger and other instant messenger. I don't have long conversations but it's just depending on how many calls i am to received.
I believe its just the battery life, not your handset, so don't panick much that it's your mobile. I have a charger at home and at work, so I recharge it again to full before I leave work.
AL AMIR, 19 Mar 2009which one should i get the i phone 3g or the black berry boldHi Al Amir,
I had the iPhone 3g for 7 months and I recently sold it and got the Blackberry Bold.
Personally I am more impressed with the Bold then I am with the iPhone as it doe's alot more then the iPhpne (currently), it's performance is great and it's easy to use anf the size isn't much different to the iPhone.
Now the iPhone 3g is getting a major software upgrade soon so the iPhone 3g will offer what a mobile should do.
The Bold they say is a business phone, which yes but however I use is for personal use, not work and I just love it, bettery life could be better however it's not an issue for me.
Iphone 3g is good if you like ipod, I love the ipod functionality and interface, so I went out and bought a ipod touch for my music and I have the Bold for my mobile and everything else.
In saying this, I don't store music into my Bold, however I put a couple of songs on it for my ringtone and when I listen to the songs playing through my Bold I found the sound quality better then the iphone sound quality coming through the earphones and the speakers on the phone, I was surprised by this. I think the sound quality is better with the Bold then the Iphone or ipod's as well.
Personally, it will be your choice and what features and benefits you are looking for in a mobile.

Ger, 17 Mar 2009How do I forward contact(Business card) details via sms on BB Bold?I cannot transfer since BB software doesn't support this
I'm confused between the BlackBerry Bold 9000 & the Sony Ericsson X1... which should I go for ?
im in luv wid this fone
the sound quality
browsing emailing msging wowwww!
msn & facebook admired me the most.
This phone is awesome it is FAST...at 624MHz you bet it is! The keyboard is awesome if you are an avid texter or emailer...Also also...the screen is VERY sharp and clear...it lights up when it is dark out which is kinda wierd but hey if you text at night there you go...this is my first blackberry and i was blown away when I touched this phone at the store I had to have it the speed is amazing and ya it is a little wide but seriously...who wants a credit card phone? I don't... but really it depends on your taste if you want a fast phone that you will be happy with then I suggest this...it is a bit expensive...ran me about 465 dollars with upgrade and taxes...but it is WELL worth it...but don't compare it to iphone or a winmo phone....its completely different...Love this phone
