I run a small business and am looking at possibly getting the Blackberry Bold, i want to be able to access my accounts and also use Microsoft Word and Excel documents. Is this the best type of phone to use for what i require. Have had the Blackberry Curve for a short trial period but had not got round to sorting out Microsoft documents etc on it. Would somebody please be kind enough to advise. Thank you kindly.
The blackberry is the most powerful business OS that sends email to ur device instantly. none of Nokia or Iphone has no match to it.I my self own a curve & waiting for Bold to come to US market so i can upgrade.
Beautiful phone, had a bit of play with it here in Australia.
But what about Telstra's plan? $130/month with only $60 worth of included calls + data? Are they kidding?
May just have to buy this outright for $999 and stay on my pre-paid cap.
Unknown, 29 Aug 2008Can someone please tell me what is the main difference between BlackBerries and other business... moreI've used the blackberry software with the Nokia E61, SonyEricsson P1, and my BB Curve.
If your business has a Blackberry Enterprise server that they will allow you to connect to - the Blackberry devices are BY FAR the better solution. I love my blackberry, and its main reason is the email. The blackbery software on non blackberry phones just isn't the same. They're slower, email doesn't get sent the same, you miss out on BB Messenger, syncing your email at work - ie Lotus notes and the keyboard on the curve is great for even for stubby thumbs like mine.
Camera features, built in gadgets - I'd go Nokia or SonyEricsson. But if you want awesome messaging features.. I am a true Blackberry fan. If you don't have to commit to a 3yr plan - don't - get it on ebay, or from someone else unlocked. Definately a toy you want to be able to say you've at least tried.
I've used this phone all day today and it is without doubt the best that blackberry, or any other manufactuer for that matter, have produced in the business phone sector.
Unknown, 29 Aug 2008Can someone please tell me what is the main difference between BlackBerries and other business... moreRIM's stong points is Push-Email. many people use the BlackBerry Email services(Both BIS and BES) which has been the best mobile E-mail service. therefor BlackBerry Connect, which brings this service to phones with Symbian or WinMob was created. but it was never as good as an actual BlackBerry.
Though, now Nokia Intelisync and Microsoft Exchange servers are catching up, and many newer models nolonger support BlackBerry Connect(ie E71,E66) so, if you want to use the BB service, get a BB. if you're happy with other E-mail solutions, then go with Symbian or WinMob.
Unknown, 29 Aug 2008Can someone please tell me what is the main difference between BlackBerries and other business... morethe main difference between nokia e61 and any blackbreyy is:-
blackberry is more efficient in getting your emails
blackberry gives u access to the internet at the same time whilst e61 does not(well in my country network it doesnt)
blackberry offers messengers such as YAHOO MESSENGER,GOOGLE TALK,MSN MESSENGER whilst the nokia doesnt.
blackberry as an interactive OS while nokia is basic symbian
love my blackberry!i hd e61...changed to blackberry thats how i knoow al this:)
can you use skype or similar VOIP package on blackberry bold? can somebody advise pls..
Can someone please tell me what is the main difference between BlackBerries and other business phones like Nokia E51 or E71 or any other business serries phone? Email and internet surfing is my major priority. Thanks
midas, 29 Aug 2008im definately getting this. got the 8300 curve at the moment. the bold is already out on orang... moreI agree whole heartedly with you on most of what you say(about iPhone etc). but I was configuring a E71 yesterday, and I have to say, that's a good buisness modle. though personaly I will still go for Bold 9000(even though I've never played with one...)
im definately getting this. got the 8300 curve at the moment. the bold is already out on orange and i think also vodafone. im on o2 waiting for their best deals on it.
i dont know if any one has seen the youtube videos of this phone but they seem to always compare it to the iphone 3g. i can honestly say in my opinion that the only thing that really lets blackberry down is their basic web browser. but you can install opera mini on it which does the job. to hell with iphone and nokia e-series. blackbery is the way forward!
