Carrier: MTN in S/Africa... I have had my BB 9700 for 2 months now and can honestly say its the best phone I've had. Had no problems of any kind. Just want to know if it has voice guided gps? MTN in SA uses the Garmin GPS platform.

I have just got a BB Bold 9700 here in Tirana, Albania and am accountering a slight problem with the SMS, which is diferent from my previous BB Curve 8900. I can not sent simple sms to diferent numbers if I have already sent one or if I receined one, because the sms will be delivered to the very first contact number. This is very strange and anoying, as I have to delete everything in the sms box to sent the sms to the wanted contact number or to see who actually sent to me a new sms. it is strage even the format of the sms it looks and it is concepted as a chat conversation where I can see only the name of the first contact (aether received or sent by me).
Therefore if there is someone that have had such a problem and has found solution to it PLEASE be so kind to addres it to me so I can fix it.
Thanks in advance!
You cannot store apps on memory card-u can only achived apps .Thats why in new Bold 9780 willbe doubble memory,bumpet up to 512 mb,people will able to store 100 apps without any problem
This phone is GOOD. The display is good and the battery is good too (lasts 3 or 4 days at full use).
Only the keyboard is a bit small, but you have to get used to it.
Blackberry OS is fast and easy to use.
I definitely recommend it.
Do you recommend BB for younger ages?Because it's like more of business related isn't it?

That fake device costs one-tenth of the original price. Here in India we getting that fake device for USD 50 only. For original BlackBerry device please buy at reputed show rooms or at big malls or just visit there website blackberry dot com Good Luck Mate

Morne, 12 Sep 2010HTC, BB or Nokia - which phone would you get if easy emailing, sync diary and voice guided GPS... moreTrust me, in my opinion there is no better phone than the BlackBerry. If you need a phone for emailing, there is no better phone than BB. If you need to sync, BB is a breeze.
In terms of voice guided navigation, I am not experienced with that but I believe Nokia may be better or "slicker" then BB but this is not based on fact.
I own a BlackBerry and as long as they keep making these awesome phones, I always will own one. Seriously, it is the best phone I have ever owned! You won't be sorry if you get one, I'm sure of that.
Just got a BB9700 and there are some small specs that look different to what I am seeing here.
1) the green symbol is facing down as compared to up in the pics here.
2) there is a number 2 digit directly under the blackberry sign on the key pad
3) the camera says its 8.0mp
4) there are two sim card slots and an additional slot with a TV sticker on it..
Is my phone a knock off or a newer version or something.. HELPPPPP!!!
