I have loaded both google maps and turn by turn natigation from Amaze which isn't the best, does anybody know of a free GPS map download?
I have had most of the BB range of phones and to be honest the bold is probably the best of them all. The graphics, sound card and screen resoltion are fantastic and although larger than than the curve it does make for easier mailing and texting
Hi..........I've just been trying out the curve 8310 on my contract and although like it very much, I decided to send it back as I wasn't quite sure if it was the right model....wanted more time to decide( female logic!)
I have now just seen an offer for an Emerald Black 8310 which looks great,but also now wonder if I should go for this BB Bold instead....
Does anyone have any comments about which is the better of the 2 models. I would use it mainly for calls,texting and e-mails rather than wanting it for downloads, camera or GPS which would just be added extras.
Any helpful advice would be appreciated...Thanks!

zmiuga, 29 Dec 2008Hello!
Please, if anyone could help me, I've had few problems with my BB Bold.
First problem... moreHi,
With your first problem, try to upgrade your BB's version to 126.96.36.199 or more. They will fix your problem with SMS like "pending sms". I tried with 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206 and they're really good. You can find them on few websites about blackberry.
I have bold for 3weeks, not really satisfied me.
Poor poor poor battery life! (½ - 1 day) menu not fast enough (delay), camera bad (2mp), not comfort to hold.
My friend tell me about N*kia E71, I buy it and it really-really make me satisfied. Battery is strong (2 - 3 days), camera 3mp (not too bad), menu fast (no delay), comfort to hold and N*kia support push email , just sign up to http://email.nokia.com for free
If you decide to buy this thing, think twice. If you really-really not like N*kia than buy this bulky thing.

I've been using the HTC touch diamond for a couple of months and im still not used t... morenihc,
In reply to your post, i had the HTC touch Pro (The diamond but with the keyboard) for 6 weeks and in that period i changed it three times. I eventually had enough of the phone (too many problems to list) and have changed to the BBB. NO regrets at all. I love the BBB and it works incredibly well. I do miss the touch screen a bit, but the track ball makes up for it as it is very easy to use.
You will not regret the move.
I love this phone...
i have been able to play around with the demo in stores, and it is amazing.
i can't wait to get my own.!
I've been using bold for 11 days until now and I'm completely satisfied..!!
The push email is working perfectly..
The keyboard are comfortable enough for chatting..
You can take picture and attach it to email and you can open attachment directly..!!
You can browse any web, wherever you go..!!
Everything's are working perfectly..!!
Although I'm a little disappointed (just little!) on the camera and the battery life, the camera is just 2mpx and sometimes it's difficult to take a nice picture and the life battery is just one day max..
I think those two are all the disappointment that i got from.. (even thought it's just a little disappointment)
Maybe for the future, blackberry can fix this both to make a more perfect blackberry..
Overall it is a very cool device and you must have..!!
Btw, all my friends told me to upgrade my bold..
What is the bold newest version?
Is it, v220.127.116.11?

Suresh, 29 Dec 2008Can anyone help me, how to change the option from 3G to 2G at Black Berry Bold .
press menu key
go to "Manage Connections"
got to " Mobile Network Options"
scroll down to "Network Mode" and press the track ball and click 2G or
whatever option you want
This is an excellent phone, but I am disappointed that the sat nav doesn't have oral guidance.
I have upgraded to the Bold, it is pretty impressive! I have had a BB pearl in the past and it didnt last 2 weeks, ended up returning it and going back to your bog standard phone. But the BOLD! What can I say, its got everything I wanted a QWERTY keyboard, 3G, use of Facebook and msn messanger.
I was hmmming about the 2mp camera but that is still good qaulity plus has flash. The only problem I'm having at the moment is not being able to recieve MMS, I can send them, but just can't recieve, so I'm not sure if its the settings I need to adjust or phone my network....
