blackberry messenger users having trouble sending files, previewing pics, etc...update to bbm version 18.104.22.168.should resolve most issues! finally a more stable version where the basic features are in working condition!
I have been use BB device since Storm,Bold 9k and now 9700. The 9700 was pretty much close to 9k the obvious different I notice is the only 9700 battery life is millions time better. Well all of the berries device couldn't use them to compare E72. I have E71 is still no where near BB devices.despire on hw many BB user outthere guys. Either 9000 or 9700 u wouldn't go wrong either way. Is so retarded that someone comparin BB with Nokia device!
maybe ur plan does not allows u to do so?
coz in SG, some data plan for blackberry, normally is cheaper plans, allows u to receive email etc and surf internet within limited portals, but not allowing like google website etc. with higher plan, then the phone can be used for everything including any website.
this is what i was told.
i just bought BB9700 and i dont have "internet Browser" application on my phone. I check previous Bolds and it has 3 browsers....internet browser, browser and WAP. Therefore the service provider told me that i need internet browser to use internet. However i can receive email and use other internet based applications, Please advise me.

I've had my BB 9700 for about 5 weeks. I've also had a BB 8900 since last June. I would have to say they're about even, but each has their own qualities. The screen of the 9700 is brighter and sharper, and the keyboard, too. The new design of the Lock and Mute buttons on the 9700 makes them easier to press, but the mute button will often engage when it's in your pocket and you sit down. However, it's not a big deal. I personally prefer the keyboard on the 8900, and I wish the 9700 had contrasting color for the number keys like the 8900. The 9700 beats the 8900 in processing speed due to the faster processor. I really have no serious gripes about either phone. Previously I had Nokia and Samsung phones, N82, 5800, t929 Memoir, but I'm definitely a Blackberry convert now. You won't regret getting the 9700, or an 8900.
Arnan, 21 Dec 2009Mo, could you please let me know how ur issues with downloading the App and the wi-fi connecti... moreyes.. got it sorted. i dnt download the App.. coz all i wanted was facebook n msn messenger wich i found them on the bb site wen i got the wi-fi on. heres how u can get the wi-fi working if ur having problems.
... the wifi sign will stay grey if u dnt have a bb data package. and it will say 'unable to connect to the internet'
go to the mobile network, select the data services to 'ON' thn go to options-advanced options-browser and set Browser configuration to 'HOTSPOT BROWSER' and ull be in business. but still u wnt be able to use nething else.. ull jus be browsing thru wi-fi.
