Hi. This question is for anyone who has had the white BB Bold 9780 for a while already. After using the white 9780 for a few months, does the phone still look good? Does the pearly finish still look the same or does it fade? Does the phone look dirty if you do not use a cover? Does the chrome finish get many scratches? Which is the better buy - the white or black 9780? Your replies would be greatly appreciated.
Anonymous, 17 May 2011thank you sarmad... but is it really about the OS difference? bcoz i didnt have the issue wh... moreI dont recall being able to use GPRS internet on the Blackberry devices I've used previously i.e. 8520, 8900, 9700 etc without BIS, because the Cellular Services Providers here in Pakistan, do not send you any GPRS settings for BB phones, which they send automatically when you put your SIM in a nokia or other brand phone. It has nothing to do with OS, its about the policy of service providers. I have used BB in England too (with o2) and there also you need to get BIS activated to use your BB. I am not sure how you managed to do so on the Storm.
This is a good product but there are some features that are lacking like the no radio output, small internal memory, no TV or video output jack, doesn't support most video and audio formats and active Sync.

but is it really about the OS difference?
bcoz i didnt have the issue when i was using storm2(OS 5),
or anything else?
i'm very disappointed with this phone/ software build quality is top notch, but they making this handsets for ages now (bold series) and it's full of bugs, top panel for connectivity freezes all the time, now email does same thing you can't scroll down and up, loads of errors with apps and rebooting, some app prices are of the planet other platforms have it as standard. It's nice little phone with good battery life, don't know why bb are not getting it right. i do like loudness of media player.

Is there any way of viewing cctv footage on a 9700? It nneds Java app installed.
I have this phone for only 3 weeks, since last week i cant access the internet through GSM connection, note that i havent activated the BIS.
Does it really need the BIS to be activated first in order to be able to access the internet???
I had Storm2 and I didnt have any trouble accessing internet despite hadnt had activated the BIS.
I went back to the seller and he said this because the difference of OS (Storm2 operates OS 5 and 9780 operates OS 6)
To me, his explanation just doesnt make sense, despite i havent justified it by activating the BIS yet.
So, anyone, please tell me, do i really need to activate the BIS first??

I had my bold 9780 for only 6 days without hardly even using it at all and on the 6th day the software/OS 6 crashed totally!!! the phone cant even switch on anymore. It is DEAD!! IM VERY DISAPPOINTED in BB! i wont even start to mention the other problems ive seen on the phone in 6 days. strolling is anything but pleasant cause the cursor just disappears!! my nokia n81 has had 2 software failures and it is still working great after more than 2 years of intense usage.
Hi, a relative is going to get one soon, hows the internet (speed nd that) and the camera is good? has anyone had technical issues? Thanks for your help :)
Neither bold 2 nor 3 wait for just launched bold 4 alias Blackberry bold 9900 touch. This is the best thing happened to BB. just in time they added much needed phone to their portfolio. Its offers best of both world.s touch and QWERTY keyboard both in the same phone. all other features are perfect. But they should have added a front camera for video calls and the rear camera should have been atleast 8MP instead of usual 5 MP borrowed from Bold 9780.
AnonD-8169, 10 May 2011Hey! I've been using the 9780 for about a week now and have discovered some bugs and glitches ... moreHi, after years using smartphones - not all models of the same brand is OK, thats how they profit.. - we've to go by word of mouth - maybe u trade it in - even years of own research can't help - for me I've a;ways wondered why the BB Torch is holding to it's price well despite new models introduced..
AnonD-8169, 10 May 2011Hey! I've been using the 9780 for about a week now and have discovered some bugs and glitches ... moreI had these issue too; connect with BB Desktop Software and get software updates which automatically prompt you. This should resolve the glitches.
