For a Blackberry of any model, to get the full functions available through a Blackberry mobile you need to get on a Blackberry BIS (Bisness Internet Solutions) plan so you can can use all the features, such as MMS, Web browsing and Apps. If you don't get a BIS plan then you can only use the mobile to make and recieve calls and SMS.
I'm in Australia and our mobile carriers charge us about $10 per month on top of our normal SIM plan and this $10 they add on the BIS plan to your account so you can use your Blackberry with all it's features.
I hope this helps you,
I agree with Alfredo, number 1 phone i nthe market right now! Go get yourself one, LIVE!
Best BB Bold ever made by far! If you`re thinking about getting this phone, just do it!!!
if i was to buy this sim free.. do i need a blackberry contract to use the apps and messaging or will i beable to use it like any other phone.. i here conflicting vues on this... please help...
hellow is blackberry 9780 bold compatible with skype if yes whats the website to download?
I did have the BB Torch 9800 but decided to sell it as I found the keys to small to use and nit enough space to move around when using the keyboard, also when using the touch screen to type it was nice and sensitive but the phone squeaked alot and didn't feel solid.
Anyhows I am now considering buying the BB Bold 9700 or BB Bold 9780, now comparing the two there is only slight differences between the two like pixels in the camera, ram speed, OS software etc, now to buy either one there is about $160 in price between the two, so do you think it's worth paying the extra for the 9780 or the 9700 will be fine?
Hello Blackberry Team, why don't u all give high colours in LCD screen with very high resolutio.
2. Radio with RDS, Visual Radio, FM Transmitter & with Radio Recording.
3. Very Long Battery Backup for eg., 12 to 14 hrs. like Nokia does.
4. 8 to 10 Mega pixel camera with more zoom options.
5. Seperate jacks for every connectivity and user friendly.
6. Network / signal light plus Tone with On & Off Option.
7. Sensor to detect light setting with on / off option.
If u will do this your company will definately grow faster than other company. Thankyou.
Jeshian, 10 Mar 2011Hi I'm planning to buy this Phone? I just wanted to ask is this a common Problem ?I've done it a few times with my 9700 but I'm sure it's my fault, maybe a very light double touch on the space bar? I'm just about to change to a 9780 and I'm confident all will be OK. What a superb phone the 9700 has been for mailing........ second to none!
That key stutter problem seems recorrent...
That's pretty bad for RIM!
I suggest not to buy this 9780, its real crap...
We pay lots, but we get a truly device with lots of problem. I already change my 9780, 3 times, but the same problems always come! its the keypad issue.. when I push a in once, it will appears aaaa or more .. oh man .. i am tired to have this 'cheap' quality of bb ...
