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!
if there will be a camerafree version, i don't mind if they add fm radio on it.

There's tons of options; a) activate the POP connector on the Ex. server so your phone can pull messages using POP; b) Set up the BB with its own blackberry address (firstname.lastname@example.org) and then just set exchange to forward a copy of the users messages to that address (usually what I do); or c) Set up mail forwarding via. the blackberry desktop software. The only thing is that without BES, there's no real synchronization taking place (the BB simple holds a 'copy' of your messages). You either have to sync manually with the PC or use BES if you want to have the device fully sync'd with your exchange account.
Max, 26 Aug 2008I got a major problem.
I NEED YOUR HELP
Should I choose Bold, HTC Diamond, Treo ... morethis was a hard choice for me too.
2 reasons I chose Diamond...
1. I managed to get BB connect working on it, so, I have the best of both worlds. BlackBerry and WindowsLive.
2. While there are no language packs available for 9000(yet) it is easy to configure Diamond, and get what ever language you want.
I also tweeked the touchscreen keyboard so it is quite easy to type with my thumbs.
but for those who cant tweek, and don't want to risk, I'll recomend the Bold 9000.
Timmy-Boy, 28 Aug 2008If you have the BES plan, it'll sync. if not, you'll need to sync manualy by connecting to PC. thanks alot bro

Tony, 27 Aug 2008Hi, Does the Blackberry Bold 9000 Sync with Microsoft Office, contacts, calendar etc?If you have the BES plan, it'll sync.
if not, you'll need to sync manualy by connecting to PC.
bo-faisal, 28 Aug 2008Guys i just need an answer for my easy question , Does it has arabic language ?
Thanks guysThe was it works is, RIM brings out updates with language packs. and you choose the language pack when you download this update.
(which can be found in RIM's web)
for now, there's no updates available for the 9000, so there is no Arabic.
you can check for updates yourself, just go to downloads, then updates. and look for the multilanguage pack.
PS:sorry for my spelling, English isn't my first language.

guest, 12 May 2008well so far the best blackberry in design, features and performance. but can't outrun real pd... morewhat do you mean real PDA phones.... BB's set the par for PDA's get you facts straight...
According to user polls this goes head to head with Nokia E71. Reviews are inclined towards E71 for it's sleeker and mail sync is packed for Exchange too. I tend to give %1 credit more to E71, but still waiting to read more opinions online.
Do anyone know if you could use this phone together with Microsoft Exchange alone or if Blackberry server software is needed?

Anonymous, 27 Aug 2008its bigger and better than the curve. i have the curve and i cant wait for this fone to come o... morescreen size is about the same as the samsung omnia difference is thats touch screen. So its not a small screen and the resolution is much better. Plus having qwerty keyboard seperately is an advantage as touch screen slows the omnia down and touch screens have more to im wrong.
its bigger and better than the curve. i have the curve and i cant wait for this fone to come out. stop saying big fone small screen
