wakeup, 19 Oct 2008I must stress to the sheep/posers getting into the BB fad (after watching movies or wherever) ... moreeven though blackberries are smartphones they are not user friendly even though i like them. blackberry start putting cameras on them to keep up with competitors.also the biggest mistake people make is too get blackberry for attention.the best video or camera phone to get is a nokia phone any n series type with carl zeiss lens.
Anonymous, 19 Oct 2008i would have definately preferred the motorola q9h if it had 3gif you have motorola q9 global thru at&t it runs on 3g
Kev, 19 Oct 2008Hi all, Is it the general opinion that the web browsing on BlackBerry ain't much good? I ne... morethe problem is that when operating a blackberry if you miss one step you have to start back from scratch and also the blackberry user manual does not give you a lot of information to work with and remember this blackberry are not user friendly like htc which is distributed thru windows thats how come all of them use windows mobile and htc stands for high tech computers.
Patricio, 22 Oct 2008It is possible to buy the Bold 9000 without carrier/operator? And only will link with the carr... moreyes buy it unlocked which means it will not have any gsm service provider settings also this is a quad band world phone running of 2g/3g networks which is 850,900,1800,1900,2100 which mean it is guaranteed to work in any country.
in my opinion...bb is still the king of all phones/smartphones/cellphones..whatever u want to call it....i have n958gb nam,nokia e90,1st gen iphone,sep990i,htc g1(i love this phone by the way)..all i can say is bb (i got the 8320 curve) still stands out..email (no one close to bb),txt messaging,instant messaging,resolutions...honestly i try to pick other phone,but i keep on coming back to my bb8320.....honest...
thinking of gettin bb can any1 give me an ideal opinion on pros & cons plz had n95 utter rubbish went through 3 handsets in 6 months and back to using sont ericsson in my opinon far the best brand of fone but had guys in from blackberry and of course they are gonna big this handset up! will this be a gud handset for me for web usage and overall usage?? smcd
The Bold is definately RIM's best effort to date. Been using mine for a week now and have not experienced the so called weak battery. It lasts for a full day and a half with heavy usage and the wi-fi on.This is about consistent with most smart phones in its class. Boy! the screen/display is awesome. way better than the i-phone's(i have used that too).
The only thing am scared of is that one day the pearl trackball would start misbehaving.I experienced that with my bb 8100 pearl after 3 months! It just stopped scrolling down! Any body had such an experience?
Any thing else i should watchout for? Thanks people.
Does windows recognize as storage device when pluged in usb without software instaled. Or do i need to install any software to access Bold's memory or memory card ?
i will appreciate memory access without need of instaling software.
can anybody help me with how to upgrade my device software, and is there any available upgrade for the BB bold?????
btw I found out how to download windows live, but I cant sign in, it says servie not enabled for this handheld. but I can go browsing. someone please help. thanks
i just bought my BBB, it is so awesome! I love it! but cant seem to connect to my wireless. everytime I enter WEP key and then press next, it always fails to obtain my IP address...it's driving me crazy!!!! can someone please help? thanks!Ive tried doing it manually too.
Bold with no camera, please!

I have same problem with my blackberry as well. I am conviced that any blackberry... moreafter pairing with whichever device,
all you need to do is to set the bb in recieve mode, example
1.go to your media folder select media type, then press the menu button select recieve using bluetooth.

For example. Pair the devices. Then you will need to go into either photos ( if recieving a photo) or music ( if recieving music or ringtone etc.). hit the menu key and you will see the option to recieve via bluetooth. It will only work that way.
i just recieved my bold and can anyone tell me the best place to download videos / music clips in the right file format to watch on the bold.
