I was lucky to get through to blackberry salesperson who said he will help me test and use this complex device..
Its amazing no matter how many new phones ive had, the excitement at getting another one never changes..
I've been reading your opinions and its been alot of help, to tell you the truth, thats the only reason why i'm getting this phone..

Amazing!! I've phoned the service provider mtn in south africa and the so called blackberry technical centre and these nutters don't seem to have a clue how to even use this phone and what it requires.. They are pretty advanced in phone exchanging.. Nokia plz help these poor souls...
Oh! and they have difficulty understanding english..
Well it doesn't have any bluetooth problem its just a bit diff.. like after pairing with the device you go to media and select receive using bluetooth..
and about lock no it doesnt have special locks for mess n all ..
one more thing you cant make doc. excel files u can just view them .. so please ask for the premium version software .. which u need to buy later
WOW!!! You guys have been alot of help, i can't wait to get my hand on this phone now. The n97 had such terrible reviews from so many people and for the BB9000 there hasn't been that many..
You guys have summed up this phone really well, I don't understand half the terminology you guys use here, but i'm sure you'll be here to help. I didn't realise how little I know about phones..
Hi all.. I need some advice, i've finally decided to buy this phone and should be getting it this weekend. From the opinions here its obvious that there are probs with this phone like all phones do..

Xuchy, 22 Aug 2009Hi am,
Its really unfortunate that you're goin thru dis bluetooth stress... My previous issue... moreHi am/xuchy,
In fact it's not a problem, it's a security feature so no one can download/upload a file without your knowledge to your phone.
What you have to do is pair the device with another device first, then goto Media option and press MENU again and click on "Recieve Using Bluetooth" and voila.

Its obvious sm1 must have rearranged your folders because all d apps in ur application folder are misplaced...check your other folders to see if the word to go was misplaced in them...if this fails ,then you'll have to update your firmware to a newer version...this will definitely the final solution...
Xuchy, pls help me, my application folder hsnt "word to go" application. The only instlld here are the Calculator,Voice Notes Recorder, Voice Dialing, Saved Msgs and call log... and wer can i fnd the Word Pad or Notes?Thanks thanks
which is better, a blackberry curve 8900 or a bold and why?
need help asap, plan to buy one next week.
