Hey! I've been using the 9780 for about a week now and have discovered some bugs and glitches in the software, just want to know whether they are common to everyone or not.. 3 other friends of mine also have the 9780 and they have the same issues, wanted to ask if there is any way around them because they are kind of irritating. Issues include:
1. The cursor sometimes disappears in the messaging menu while writing a msg.
2. When a message come's and you open the chat thread, then sometimes it just doesn't scroll up at all, and it doesnt even freeze, you return to the inbox and then back to the message and it still wont scroll up until you delete the new message.
3. The LED light for messages stops blinking when you just check you inbox, BUT, after using the phone for a while after rebooting, the LED light stops blinking only when you actually open the new message.. This disparity and imbalance is weird.
Hence these things have been kind of irritating, because I have a Curve 9300 too and that works flawlessly, so I actually had better and more expectations from the Bold, but alas!

Without turning off the device, take out the battery about 30 secs and then insert back the battery
last march i have my first bb 9780 and it was so cool. but why is that i can't view videos from youtube??? not compatible???
kram, 08 May 2011can i download videos using this fone?!You mean videos frm youtube? So far I havent found any sort of apps that allow you to do that frm BB
I played youtube frm bold 9780 and after a while the device will freeze and the only solution is to do a battery-pull
And sometimes when you are browsing and after using the zooming function or clicking on the 'return/back' button the scroll icon refuse to move as you want. It keep refusing to move accordingly
As for the speaker performance, strangely I found that my Sony Ericsson W595 played mp3 louder and better than my Bold 9780
I am not complaining about the performance. Just to highlight some areas for imptovement. Perhaps new OS update will solve this issue
I do hope that blackberry device can be more interactive in terms of design and colour. Instead of plain black or white, perhaps they might want to consider some design improvement. (In Malaysia there was a limited edition of Bold 9780-Chinese New Year version in RED and it looks great!)

kichu, 28 Apr 2011i have one dout regarding BB Messanger,i am plan to buy BB,BB to BB messaging free? i am livin... moreNo, BBM Needs a data package to work, but they're actually pretty cheap and you can make unlimited use of BBM and other instant messaging applications, it's great!
AnonD-7275, 28 Apr 2011Confused Between Bold 2 & 3.....plz do suggest me ..which one to buy?????Both use the same processor, but bold3 has 512mb ram, bold2 only has 256ram. Oh by the way bold3 comes standart with os6. I use the bold3 now, good phone
As a faithfull blackberry user I have used the first curve, the 8900 curve, and now I'm using the 9780. I gotta admit blackberry is not the best unit out there, the camera stability and response is no good, sound is average, UI response sometime glitchy.and I suspect this new bold not gonna be that much better. But what I love about blackberry is the blackberry RIM service, specially the blackberry messanger and the email is just superb. Whch is why blackberry is just right for me. But if your a multimedia type of person then you're better off with a nokia, sonyerricsson. If you're a web surfer or a gamer then you're better off with an iphone or those android based smartphones.
hello BB Bold 9780 users, I have only single question: how's video performance on this phone? I used to record with Nokia 5800 (30 fps) and the result was so smoooth, how's the Bold 9780 video doing?
The BBB3 (9780) is by far the best ever, I have had Nokia's, samsung, and I garuntee you, the software and hardware, is of the greatest quality! I will always, upgarde to another blackberry! I can without a doubt, recommend the Bold - Series!
