i upgraded from bold 9000 to bold 9700..it is a good choice after i considered between 9700 or 9650..i prefer qwerty instead of touchscreen..the trackpad is easier to be operated by my sweaty hand..many people got handheld with leaning position but i god a normal trackpad..the keypad is smaller than bold 9000..but i get to use to..after i upgraded the software i felt the battery lasts longer..i think this is the best blackberry and the best model..i'm really satisfied..
Hi all, Can you tell me how I can use the BB maps on my 9700. I am not finding any icon for the maps in my phone. Please assist.
I got a new BB bold 9700 5 days ago.I tried to copy my phone contacts from my Samsung GT B7330 through the bluetooth but my BB9700 is not accepting the connection but it can transfer contact to another phone. From what I have read from people on the web, a lot of them seem to have problem with blackberry bluetooth. I think RIM should recall this phones and fix the problem.
i need to purchase a phone asap for business usage.
would anyone be able to please advise as to which blackberry would possibly fullfil the needs of instant emails in bulk and constant internet usage at the touch of my fingers, if possible please respond with regards to the blackberry bold 9700.

You have to get a BB data plan from them called BIS (Blackberry Internet Service) or BES(Blackberry Enterprise Server) in order to get those apps working.

my friend said that 9700 has a high radiation frequency and it's bad for health of course especially a possibility to get brain cancer, is that true??
dam dam, 25 Jun 2010can anyone pls tell d best quality.bold 9700 made in canada,made in mexico, or made in hungary... moreMade in hungary 9700 is NOT good that's for sure, having hardware problems, been only 3 months and i would consider my self as a light to average user and NOT a heavy user. Problem Started off with restarting on its own and now the phone just wouldn't switch on. If any suggestions anyone! please advise?
NOTE: Tried the master wipe, upgrading the OS, re-installing the OS, went to the tech. got the hardware checked and fixed, phone worked for about 2 hours then restarted once when trying to load the application list, had to do a battery pull and it re-started successfully. Didn't use the phone, Slept in woke up in the morning, on my way to work, just clicked to check the time, phone froze and again the same issue. Just won't switch on.
Kindly advise if any suggestions.
I have the BlackBerry Bold 9700. I can Honostly say, its the best one ive had. It does everything you want. Im the type of person who lives on their phone.
Good Job Blackberry!!!
I had my BB bold for 14 days and it froze on me I took it in for repairs. They have now told me that they will replace my phone with a secondhand refurbished phone.
Think about it i sent in a BRAND new phone and now i get a REFURBISEHD phone. Does that make sense.
Thats what I call daylight robbery. MY support and marketing for BB ENDS RIGHT HERE.
Going onto my 5th bold 9700 in 5 months...WHAT!Options

I have had 4 exchanges now through*****and I now have to go in again for more problems.
I must be incredibly unlucky or they really are **bleep** at putting together a good decent phone.
I'm not usually fussy with phones but when its a 2 year contract id like it to last!
My first 2 blackberry bolds both went faulty, the first would start up at the Blackberry loading bar and always get stuck in one place when loading..so it was sent off and a new one sent back.
The 2nd phone's screen one day whilst using went white with a 501 error sign? no idea what that meant but they sent it off and sent a new one.
The 3rd was sent to me with loose bits, rattled and SLOW. The trackpad was leaning to the left, not just slightly but it was completely sunk in.
Now the 4th one i have...i have had this one for just 1 WEEK and the trackpad has fallen in and wobbles a hell of a lot, causing it to creak when using it. it drives me mad!! It was fine at first too . I could have put up with that until it now doesn't charge up fully. My other friends who have BBs and they charge up fine when plugged into my charger. Ridiculous!
All i'll do is send it off again and receive yet another faulty/badly manufactured phone.
Is theres anything I can do to ensure I get a PERFECT phone that I can rely on for 2 years? I just want to enjoy a nice, good phone.
I've been without a blackberry for longer than ive had it to enjoy since my contract started. Its not on.
))))))do absolutely nothing about it and just push the blame to Blackberry saying i need to sort it with them.
PLEASE THINK TWICE BEFORE GETTING ONE.
THE AFTER SALES SERVICE IS BAD. I FOR ONE CANNOT GET INTO CONTACT WITH BB TO TELL THEM MY PROBLEM.
pls, would BB Bold 2 9700 receive java applications, games or sumtin else for entertainment?
