This is by far the best blackberry I have ever used, it may have had some software issues at the start of the launch, however, I am pleased to say that all is working great now!! I would not be without mine x
well bold is amazing i got it for like 2 months now i canceled my data , so i could use it with wifi.
everything works i am able to browse thru wifi but can not use msn , yahoo , gtalk . lame.
even google mail wants bbdata.
hope they make this also available to wifi soon.very secure phone , other bb apps should work on wifi only if encrypted wifi.
this phone is fun for work and play.
Hi Robert i had the same issues with my bold when i first bought it all ypou need to do is upgrade the software and it should be fine. The bold is a chick magnet guys.
i work for AT&T company and Bold has problems with the softwear and battery is very poor have to charge is everyday
Im not sure why people are comparing the Bold to ANY Nokia phone. I've used just about every phone imaginable- nokia, htc, samsung, lg, and bb. This is by far the BEST PHONE i've EVER had.
The design is beautiful and sleek. The speed is phenomenal. The screen is BEYOND amazing quaity- the video pictures etc are are BEYOND phenomenal... the OS is great, typing is a pleasure... nothing about this phone is short of amazing. Dont complain about stupidness and make dumb comparisons. Blackberry has NO competitor.
I upgraded my mobile to a Blackberry Bold 9000 from an HTC Mteor (Windows Mobile 6.0).
The Blackberry Bold 9000 is an exceptional phone with amazing features and awesome business applications.
Having used a Windows Mobile 6.0 HTC for the past two years, the Blackberry is by far a superior modern mobile business tool.
Identify and prioritise what your needs are before deciding upon your final selection of mobile.
Blackberry covers a wide spectrum ranging from digital camera to games, however the primary purpose of the Blackberry Bold 9000 is to facilitate persons on the move...I am an Audit Manager for a multinational South African company and the Blackberry Bold 9000 complements my professional career which includes extensive traveling.
For me one of the main features I appreciate most is being permanently connected to the internet for...
>> Email (live)
>> News updates
>> Share Trading updates
Goodluck with your choice of phone.

Has anyone compared the BlackBerry Bold 9000 to the Omnia?
Hello , i'm about to buy a blackberry bold but i'm not decided what to buy , this phone or the nokia e71 .In my opinion the blackberry have a special and distinctiv interface and a verry nice shape . The e71 has a nice shape too, it's more slimer and it has a lower price. That is an important thing for me.
Can you help meu with this doubt ?
Thank's in advance

To those who write comments without thinking or giving good reasons why they hate the phone,haven't tried it out,and just hate blackberries.PLEASE DONT WRITE anything,there are people who want REAL hands on review,not your hatred!
tze, 10 Dec 2008Has anyone here compare between Bold 9000 and Nokia E71?
3/ Qwerty Ke... moreI actually own both. To be fair, I just bought the Bold because I had a hard time with the E71. Also, I do not hate the E71, it is a sleeker phone and does okay. The downfall to the E71 is due to its sleek form factor. I should have known better that to buy a brand new device, having never tried it in person first. It just looked sooo sweet onlnine and I needed another phone ASAP. I can hardly dial on the phone, let alone email and text. Keep in mind that I am more of a business user and I have a hard time hearing, so the BB is more suitable for my needs. As for features: I can't comment because both are loaded devices, although the BB does seem to handle multitasking much better and does not lag the way the E71 does. The unlocked E71 was one of the best phones for the $ when it came out and is still a good buy. The Bold is a great phone but an unlocker will run you $$$. The loud speakers, big screen and real trackball were what sold me on the Bold. I like to be able to read the webpages at night without my glasses. I can't really do that on the E71 without waiting for zoomed content. This and the keyboard make up for the Bold's large form factor, IMO. BB lets you truly push email. E71, not so much. I have to connect and download each email after numerous attempts and setting changes on the E71. I would say the Bold is more phone orientated as well (i.e. it is a phone and messaging tool first). E71 speaker is much softer. That's not always a big deal because I'm usually on the Bluetooth headphones anyway (although not using BT with the soft speaker is a problem for me). The Bold reception is much better in the countryside where I reside. The metal body of the E71 feels higher quality to me. Both have great syncronizing software. E71 and Bold seem to be about equally intuitive. I had to get the feel of how apps and setting lay out on both and then I could start to assume where to look for others. The E71 seems like it takes many more keystrokes/button pushes to get around when trying to call and not lose what you're doing in an app. I cannot comment on 3G as I am a T-Mo customer. Battery life (OEM)is about equal. Although both are qwerty smartphones marketed to business and consumers alike:
-E71 is more of a sexy consumer device.
-Bold is more of Business orientated device.
Anyway, hope this helped.
