If you ever question what is the best blackberry ever made to this very day, then the answer is this 9780. Simple, good-looking, reliable, and tough. It's even better than the touch-screened OS7s, namely Dakota, Monaco, Monza, Apollo, Bellagio, etc. Personally, I hate touchscreens, they give you almost nothing but troubles. Incidental touches that cause undesired settings changes is one of those troubles. Believe me, if you already hav this phone, stick with it. Never get easily tempted to swap to those OS7 or you'll be sorry.
nnnn, 15 Mar 2012hi friend, s possible to upgrade from bb6 to bb7? caus no experince in BB i wanna buy....I think BB os7 needs at least 800MHz proccessor and liquid graphics to operate....The BB 9780 hardware is not powerfull enough to operate BB new O/S 7..

nnnn, 15 Mar 2012hi friend, s possible to upgrade from bb6 to bb7? caus no experince in BB i wanna buy....No, you are not able to update your phone from BB6 OS to BB7 OS. The phone does not have proper hardware for the newer OS.
This is a best smart phone, this a fast phone coz it has 512mb ram and 624 Mhg processor....cam 5 mp and powerful Led Flash....I like it so much and I have it...so i know better about this phone. I used iPhone 3g, Blackberry 8520, Blackberry Pearl....comparing in these phones, Blackberry 9780 bold is best and stylish and stronger....

I have not seen complaints about keyboard double typing. Is it that it does not happen to your bold 9780 atall?
Had a bit of trouble and could not think why? Anyhow after a visit to shop my BB BIS account takes 48 hrs to activate ..Just 20 minutes ago i got through and its been activated,,Now done a hard reset and setting it up again..I use a free utility called flashlight by Jarrad company i think and assign it to left conveniance key so got instant torch,,i assign right conveniance key to camera for instant access.
When i had torch 9810 i missed left conveniance key because it does not have one..I now need shazam and horn to complete my usefull app set up..Dont know yet if these are available but will search later tonight..BB still has a away to catch up the app world is painfully slow even on my laptop ..Also BB does not have much free stuff and the fee payable for some apps if laughable.
Anonymous, 14 Mar 2012Thanxx bryn !!! I am just confused becuz i am a user of nokia presently and dont know much abo... moreI have been Nokia symbian fan since Nokia 3650 and only had BB about a year.I had E72 for 14 months and wanted to upgrade to E6 but no auto-focus so thought i will go for BB 990 but that had no auto-focus...So i hung on to my E72 and tried iphone and samsung galaxy range but hate full touchscreen.I really loved my first BB the 9105 but i found the touchpad very awkward to use but it was a great smartfone and long battery.
So i have the 9780 for now which is second hand and its great to have real buttons back..I am my money to try the new QNX BB when they arrive ..I got my BB 9780 for 135 GBP.Its got a few scratcheon it but the camera lens is OK..The BB 9780 is still selling for 370 GBP here in UK which is still a lot of money for a smartfone a year old.
I'm wanting to choose btw the BB bold9780 and the touch 9900. Which would you guys recommend. Seem to be quite a few negative comments on the touch. Is the battery life really that bad and excuse my ignorance, but what exactly is the auto focus that it doesn't have and why is it so NB. Thanks

I am just confused becuz i am a user of nokia presently and dont know much about BB , now i hope i will get 9780 becuz it have good specs and interesting custom cases for dashing looks !!! :P
Anonymous, 12 Mar 2012Guys which is better 9380 or 9780 or 9790I have gone for 9780 because its cheaper and got auto-focus..I was in your position for about 1 month going round and roud on which to buy..
If you go for 9790 it has poorer battery life and poorer audio..The 9780 is so much cheaper and more solid a device in all categories..The 9810 torch was another contender but it is a bit heavy but ticks EVERY box.
I immediately ruled out the new 9900 with poor batter and NO auto-focus..Its up to you how you use your BB and whats more essential to you..If you just want BB messaging and email the 8520 was the best selling smartphone in the UK last year and cheap as chips..
I did have your dialema but think i made the right choice before BB goes QNX but in the end its up to YOU.
i rlly like this cell phone. i had the best experience with this phone,. and also the nokia 8800 issa great phone to deal with too.
