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....
Some body please help me.
I want to ask if anybody notice that in the OPTION ICON under OWNER. you can input your details and it appears on the screen. but it didn't appear on mine! Please help

Is the internet quick on the Bold? Does the quickness of the internet depend on the phone or the provider? Pls advise. thx for your help
I've been using the HTC touch diamond for a couple of months and im still not used to the touchscreen (prefer buttons) and thinking of switching to the BB bold.
Doesnt help that I live in Canada and its very cold, and touch screen just doesnt work for me..plus batt life of diamond sucks.
is the bold a good choice of change? since i text/email quite a bit.and surf moderately.. or is the javelin a better choice?
thank u for ur time.

ill choose BOLD, tho its wider than javelin, but it has great lcd colour, 3G, softer keypad, etc.. the complete one :)
but if u prefer comfortable on hand, choose javelin with smaller size, smaller lcd, less sharp lcd colour.
yes, u can use internet access on 2G network. make sure u have fast internet provider for 2G (GPRS, EDGE).
Hi guys, Blackberry seem interested for me, i have never have blackberry mobile before, I think next week i'll have one, but could you guys advice me which one should i go for, Bold OR Javelin 8900? Then if i choose Javelin, since it doesn't come with 3G, it is possible for me to have internet access without wifi? this question might seem stupid for you guys since i do not know mich about mobile, so I need your advice please.

When I unchecked the carrier option and only checked the WiFi option, it does sense and find my home WiFi. But; it keeps going online and offline by itself every 1-2 minutes non stop. Again, all my other Wifi devices (laptops, Sony Mylo) never loose the WiFi signal, only the Bold keeps droping it. I use a new Netgear RangeMax wireless router. My Bold so far refuses to lock on the Wifi signal except for 1-2 minutes at a time. I can't say I fully trust the stand alone WiFi capabilities of this phone until I find a way to stay on Wifi only for a while..
hey guys i am planning to buy the blackberry bold... but i am so confused coz some say that its not that easy to use and not confortable.. plz help me
which is better this or the iphone for a texter

First problem... moremy bold finds and connects to my home wifi no problem. however i dont beleive its actually using the connection at all. at first i thought it was when i was surfing the web. then i discovered i was still able to web surf with it off. is it simply using the att cell signal? it must be because when i uncheck att mobile service in manage connections i cant surf anymore. i dont have the data plan. will i now be charged for data on my bill? i bought the phone so i could use wifi at home without paying for the data plan. is this even possible or am i returning the phone? if so big false advertising....
I have this phone with AT&T in the US. This phone can use $99 (US) 16gb micro SD just fine (Specs in this web site does not say that). The media player gets a bit confused at times and it may fail to show all video or pictures or music. If you use the on-board BlackBerry "Explorer" from the Media Player options you will be able to find/see/play all entries. AVI videos show better and more reliable than VMV videos.

i traded in my N95 (w/c i had been using for a year) for this phone.. this is my first BB and so far its been great! its easy to use, battery life is adequate can go 3 days with mod use w/out charging it. I thought it would be really bulky but its not.. not much of a difference in size from the curve. but it weighs less than the N95 for sure.
