Hi, I am using Blackberry 9700 since last couple of month. I bought this phone from USA through AT&T and unlocked with them.
I was using this phone in India and was working absolutely fine.
Right now I am in Australia and since I am here I am facing unusual problem with this phone. I have contacts saved in my phone but when I insert my Australian SIM its not read name of incoming no. I mean if I have contact save in my mobile for particular person and if he/she calls me then it should show me the name of person.
But it just shows me no and because of that its very difficult for me to recognize who is calling me.
Someone advice me that replace the new SIM. So I went to Optus store and bought replacement SIM but still problem hasn't solve.
Finally I took the back-up of all my contacts through Blackberry Desktop Manager and the deleted each and every contact manually and then again Synchronize all the contacts to phone and still problem hasn't resolve.
Can someone advice how can I resolve this issue?
One more question Is there any way that I can select all the contact in one go and copy it to SIM. I have observe that Blackberry doesn't have luxury to select all contact. If u want to copy any contact into SIM memory then u have to select each contact individually and edit and save it.
Appreciate it if someone can guide me.
I'm sure as a Blackberry Bold 9700 user you also experience the frustration of having a very small internal memory.
Is there an existing work around to install applications using the external memory or is it really the way it is?
I only have 69MB left on my phone.
I've been using this phone for almost three months now.
This is a great phone, all I wanted are all here.
Social Media: Twitter, Facebook, Myspace, Foursquare et al.
IM: BBM, YM, GTalk...
Email: BB email, Yahoo Mail, Hotmail, Gmail
Camera: For a smart phone, a 3.2mp camera/video recorder is fair enough
Voice Dialing is great!
Themes: Tons of themes to install from any trusted sites. (I have the Harry Potter Deathly Hallows Themes now.)
Calling: Quality is great!
Texting: Threaded messages is great!
MS Office: You can download attachments from your email and view/edit it using this phone.
Trackpad: it's very cool and responsive.
Music: Although i dont listen to music a lot using this phone because i have my iPod, the volume is also fair enough.
App World: Applications are very limited unlike Android and Apple but since this is a smart phone, I am not gonna use this to just play some useless and time consuming games. I just hope there's a Wikipedia app.
WiFi: Internet is really fast which will still depend on your connection and browser. I use "Bolt" app browser when connected to WiFi, it's fast!
YouTube: Yes, you can watch YouTube videos here. Cool eh? (I use Bolt when accessing YouTube)
Battery Life: Since my Data Signal is always "ON" the whole day and I keep on updating my Twitter and FB page, I charge the battery everyday. It really depends on how you use it. But if I don't use the data that often, my battery stays for two days.
Restarting/Log/Freezes: Once in a while my BB freezes when there are lots of applications running, worse is, it'll restart when it cannot carry that much load. I think it's just normal because even computers get tired. So, what i am doing now is I limit the number of applications running at the same time.
So far, it is a great phone.
If you are into games and all that stuff, do not buy this phone. You will be disappointed.
I hate this phone because my boss can detect my location anywhere with it..
theres only one thing i can tell you...
i have this phone for almost 4 months, its just awesome.. totally worth to buy...

Built quality has been mentioned a couple of times, are you sure they gave you a new BB and not one somebody else already returned? So are you going back a fourth time with the BB? I had a black one and now a white one but I have no problems with the built quality (also Netherlands). I gave the black one to my son, so no problems with that one either.

I bout mine last Monday. I already went 2 times to the store for a replacement here in Netherlands.
So this is my third blackberry this week. It is always something with cover.
First phone, stand-by/mute buttons was making annoying noise every time I press it.
Because the cover was somehow crooked and it did not fit good.
Second phone, metalic painted frame somewhere around volume buttons was crooked too.
Every time I take the phone in to my hands it made that annoying plasticly noise. Specially when you use the volume rockers. So I went again for the third phone.
The third phone, on the right side, around right lower corner of the screen when you go over it with your thumb you can feel the sharp edge of the screen. This is because the cover does not fit well. Also you can feel the edge on the bottom of the phone where the silver painted frame does not cover well the middle body part of the phone. Also the alt key on the right side bumps out of the frame. It is not smoothly integrated in to the body like the rest of the keys.
This phone costs here around 500 euros but it feels like a phone that costs 50 euros.
I am rely surprised that blackberry's are so poorly built.
Dis phone is a total package.love all features n it rocks.Total user friendly.
I faced this strange problem on my 4 month old 9700.
Suddenly i wasn't able to play songs or video. Later I got to know that I cant hear anything on receiving call and not even the ring of incoming call. I tried restarting but did'nt work. Later I removed battery and then restarted. It finally worked.
Can someone let me know the cause ? Should I visit the BB Service Centre?
My BB 9700 is currently connected to the wifi in my office, but i have problems browsing the internet. There are two other users of BB phones in the same office, who not only easily browse the net but also use BBM as well. I have checked all my wifi connection settings... Any idea on what i should do next?
