SUPERNICK, 22 Mar 2011can you get bb os6 on the 9700?yes u can , but it will slow it down .
Hey guys,i wana buy a phne bt im v.confuse wch 1 shud i buy either e72 or bb 9700,cn sum pls teme
I've bought a new 9700 after using E71 for around 3 years. Also I was paralelly confused b/w buying a Android / BB phone. But as luck would have favoured me Bold9700 is the BEST phone available in market. Specially for a professional person like me. It has so many detailed options that makes you crazy. Other than profession, it also bears lot of multimedia fun. Battery back-up is decent of around 1.5 days. Voice clarity is amazing. Professioanal and personal mail usage alongwith social network sites is awesome. Mail sync is blink away. BB messanger is another magic. Over all a best gadget. All prospective byuers, don't even think twice - grab it. You'll love your decision.
Afterall nothing PERFECT exist out in the world.

Manual device OS upgrade instructions:
First locate your carrier and the OS file you wish to use.
Do a backup of your device first, using Desktop Manager > Backup. Close Desktop Manager upon completion.
1. Download the OS file to the PC then install it to the PC by running (double clicking) the file you downloaded.
2. Go to c:\program files\common files\research in motion\apploader and delete the file named "vendor.xml."
3. Plug in BB and double click on "Loader.exe." It's located in the same place as the above vendor.xml file.
I installed the official OS 6 (v220.127.116.118) on my Bold 9700 but why is it that my camera's flash isn't working?
even if the flash is switched on, it's not flashing at all.
i dunno what's wrong... i did to reboot my bb by removing the battery and for the first flash its working but for the second and so on its not.
Please what shall I do? Are there any of u experiencing the same?
Anonymous, 22 Mar 2011Y people see Bold2 as curve3G're they dsameI think all curves don't have flashlight for their camera. Bold2 still the most rugged of all the blackberry RIM can testify to this LOL
All the way from Nigeria
i have recently purchased this phone, it is awesome but dont no why my mobile optical track pad is going inside, just after a month. now it's optical trackpad is bit difficult to use....
Guys this is a must read:
After using this phone for about over an year, i sought for the bold 2 i.e. 9780 and i keep cursing myslf for this swap. Nonetheless this 9700 stands as second to none in the blackberry lineup. This is the a perfect device ever engineered by RIM. I am going to change my 9780 to this one again, why?
Because, The new os is not suitable for this phone.
There is a conventional problem in the keppad it keeps on double typing and this is nothing but frustrating why typing an official e mail.
while zooming into a picture big blocks are seen and it takes 2 seconds to see a clear zoomed in picture.
I have shared my experiences with you guys and will undoubtedly say this 9700 is the best ever phone i ever had and am going to buy it sooner.
