hey everyone....well i bought the same phone but without cam cause of my work lol...it's really useful..
bought >1 month ago. max email accout up to 10. Able to manage ownself. U get connected everytime & now that what I call LIFE... make sure u do subscribe BES & BIS together
BB is just for person who are busy with email,not more than that.If u compare with E72,BB is nothing.I do agree that in term of email,BB win. but when u like to install app in the phone,BB cant do that.BB just give u common app. the longer u own it,u will bored. its just phone for email,nothing more...think about it. if im saying is true,leave BB,if im wrong,buy BB and try yourself. U will know it.

You just need to choose what suits your need the best. Also, your location and carrier are important details. My carrier's best multimedia phone right now is the iPhone 3GS and in September we should get the iPhone 4. The best CDMA carrier just got the Droid, I don't like CDMA phones so I looked at the best messaging phones on my GSM carrier and the best is the 9700 and I got the curve since I couldn't afford the 9700. The 9700, contract free, costs 600 USD and my Curve costs about 300 USD. So, pricing in different countries matter a lot, too. And, I can get the e72 for 580 USD or the iPhone 3GS 32GB for a little over 900 USD. So, yeah. Carrier and location matters.
Ziggy, 31 Jul 2010in reply to this - (BB can only install apps on it's internal app memory, which currently is o... moreThere are many reasons to get a BlackBerry, but not everyone needs or would use it for what it is. I have an 8520. BlackBerries are messaging phones. There is really no need for too many apps. I do have like 21 apps (games, weather, a translator and Shazam) and still have 115mb out of 120mb. My use is messaging. Facebook, emails, Twitter, WLM, BBM... this doesn't take away a lot of memory. If you want to play cool 3D games and have a ton of apps for entertainment or whatever, the Blackberry is not for you for this exact reason. App memory. I've had Nokias and Sony Ericssons, both smart and dumb phones, and never did I ever need to have a ton of apps. My iPod touch 2G 16GB didn't have more than 20 games and I didn't play them all. So, a Blackberry is perfect for me. I can also check the full site version of Facebook using Bolt Browser when I'm not home. Pics. Yeah, I miss my N85's camera but hated the buggy Symbian S60 OS. So, I'm ok... I can buy me a digital camera if I want great pics, it's not like I'm using my BB at a wedding or graduation. So, that is whay I love my Blackberry.

if you have owned a 9000 bold then the 9700 will not please you.
Because it feels much cheaper in the hand. It is too small in my opinion.

Is this true...if this is true then what is the point of getting this phone? I mean just a few emails and then all the memory is occupied... please respond
I am considering getting a bb9700. I am not a cell fone fundie, but need gps and email on my fone. Can anyone tell me what the hype about OS5 / OS6 is? What is the difference?
I bought the phone yesterday 30/07/10.
previously i'm using E72.
So my comparison from E72 and BB are:
1) Screen BB too small to browse
2) The menu icon for BB is so simple but when you used it for a while then you can easily familiar with it.
3) It has no radio, sometimes need radio to hear news
hi does ny one Know how to select Multiple Items Like music or Files, Which can be marked and sent through Bluetooth to another device, as there is no options to select all or mark!!

Only difference is the advantage that Nokia can install apps on the memory card or the 32GB of onboard memory. BB can only install apps on it's internal app memory, which currently is only 256mb minus the OS leaving about 120mb for apps, emails, contacts, texts, etc.
Your N97 probably has everything on it's phone memory and not the extended 32GB. And I think it only has like 80mb?? Not too sure. Try moving everything onto the 32GB. And if you're looking for a good BB, the 9700 is one of the best ones on a GSM network. But if you live in the US you might as well wait for the 9800 in order to use the newer OS.
BB fool, 28 Jul 2010dont waste your to buy this foolish and stupid phone. the price and function and more problem ... moreThe E72 has been one of the buggiest Nokia phones along with the N97, the N96, the N85 and the 5800. The E72's 5MPX camera doesn't come close to my N85's or N95's 5MPX and Nokia messaging isn't as fast as BB push email service. The one thing the E72 does have is style, but I prefer the look of the e71 even more, especially in black.
9700/9780, 28 Jul 2010Should I wait for the 9780 or just get this one? Because I'm planning to sell my iphone 3GS a... moreI was reading about an event that ATT and RIM are having and many believe that they will be announcing the 9800 with BlackBerry 6 on it. If I were you, I'd wait for the 9800. The 9700 seems less likely to get a full powered BB6. If any device with 256mb of RAM and a trackpad or touchscreen (9700, 85XX, 9520/9550,91XX) that are currently out actually do get BB6, it would be a Lite version and we'd be left with very little memory. Kind of like the 9000/9500/9530 with OS 5. I wouldn't want a device with barele 60mb of memory left. So, I'd get one of the newer ones with at least 512mb like the 9650 (CDMA with GSM capabilites) or the 9800. The 9780 would probably come out later but BB6 definitely works and looks better on a touchscreen.
jovy, 29 Jul 2010nokia still the best for everthingAre you kidding me? Nokia is the worst phone you can buy.
I have a N97which shows memory full every 5mns. Mind you it has 32gb of memory. After formating 8times in last 6months and all firmware updates I am still suffering.
That's why I am considering a Blackberry.
Please do not laugh...what is all the hype about OS5 and OS6. I want a bb9700, but evryone making a fuss about it not having OS6. Whats the difference?
Some how people do get so many things mixed up when it come talking phones.
If we talk about mail, this actually depends on what you want in mails.
We all know that BB mail is the most secure system and this is so because it was particularly met for the enterprise communities.
Any phone that can access the internet can access mail.
If you don't deal with buck mails that you have to reply to as they come you may not need BB.
In fact, BB is not for those that will not get data plan.
If you want big screen and you can afford an IPhone just go for it.
Second hand or used Iphone 3Gs cost about $600 in Nigeria.
Just imagine given that away for a used phone.
If you can afford it go for it.
I love BB, I love Iphone and the rest.
Get the one that suite your puppose and leave the rest.
BB fool, 29 Jul 2010dalilah, better go for nokia E72, its function is similar to BB 9700 but better than 9700, no ... moreI have a friend who owns a e72, he is not happy with it at all, too slow, buttons not working etc...If you have had a bad experience with BB please say so and give examples. Dont just say its rubbish. 99% reviews here are positive...Personally I'd go with the 99% than the 1%...
