Marc, 23 Jan 2010I have the BB 9700 but am having a bluetooth connection problem with any other phone or laptop... moreI had the same problem when i had a motorola phone. I couldn't get connected over bluetooth with my friend's BB. And the same for them.
But they we're able to connect together with their BB phones.
We then came to the conclusion that you can only connect over bluetooth to another BB device.
Hope we are wrong, but if not, that is really sad.
I have the BB 9700 but am having a bluetooth connection problem with any other phone or laptop can someone help on that
Anismee, 23 Jan 2010I have BB9700 for one day and for the first time owning a BB, and am exploring SMS and contact... moreI suggest you have a quick sale your blackberry and immediately bought a nokia E72, the problems answered
I have BB9700 for one day and for the first time owning a BB, and am exploring SMS and contact stuff. Please help with:
1) SMS display:
Sender name + phone number type (work, mobile, home)
I don't like this format as it is wordy, most of my phone numbers are marked as "work". I'd like to have Sender name + company name. Please let me know how to set this up.
2) For a message has a number in it, I can't "Use number" for saving to contacts or call.
3) I can't edit a message that I want to forward.
Thank you in advance.

ya..i though of buying this baby soon..after i satisfied there is no issue about it..keep telling me folks about ur experience..
It is not available in white however, you can buy customisable cases for it
If possible need some assistance with BB Bold 9700. Just bought two days ago and having an issue with sending and receiving SMS.
1. Sending SMS
In the icon SMS and MMS, when the SMS inbox is completely empty, only the first SMS will reach the recipient (lets name him for example “JOHN”). And all future messages to any other contacts (except JOHN) will fail. I mean that I can’t send SMS to anybody else, except that first number.
2. Receiving SMS
I can receive SMS. But there is also an issue, after sending my first SMS to any contact (the same “JOHN”), I will receive messages after from any contact, but all the messages will come under the same name JOHN. Message from any other contact are coming from the same name JOHN.
As I can see it is like a never-ending chat with “JOHN”. What should I do? I tried wiping, but its not helping. As soon as I’m sending first SMS to anybody, the problem starts.
Please help me. Otherwise the device is great.

well those who are debating with a e90, it is very bulky and freezes easily also the newer e90 update is the e75 which is smaller and better equipped with new software and nicer interface
