I honestly don't understand the negative comments. Sometime I think there's some people who just like to live that way. I'm an experienced bb user (had 8900,9000, 9700, 9630, 9790,9900 and now have a 9790 again) but I also have a iPhone 4S (which i'v also had the 3gs, the 4 and now the 4s) and use them both (one pro and the other for private use). There's no comparison. My "all the time" phone is the bb, because its an dependable device, has much better battery life, does everything and its a a real phone. Never, ever, ever has any issue with any of my bb's except the batt in the 9630 and the memory leak on he 9700 on os 6. The 9790 is top notch! A small factor full qwerty with a touch screen! What else do you want? If you want to play games all the time by a i5 . If you want a dependable all around phone buy a 9790! Trust me. I work for a living!
Before the bold 9790 I had the blackberry curve 9300 for two years & had no problems,with this one it's been a nightmare I can put up with battery but the phone it's self keeps cutting out mid call I've taken it back after 4 weeks were it was sent off for repair and eventually replaced with a new phone same model one week later and it's still doing this has any one else had this problem or is it just me ?
Deactivate the WiFi option and the 3G option and you will be surprised about the baterry life. Much better!!!
this is a very bad phone. first i was very happy that i was buying it but later i felt like throwing it. whats the point of touch screen the screen is so small. the battery life is poor and the speakers are horrible . also it hangs every 2 minutes. multitasking is bad. trust me dont buy blackberry just for bbm buy iphone or noki lumia 800 which is an amazing phone or android but first lumia 800 nokia is making a comeback
dre, 14 Nov 2012please help me, the phone battery has been getting hot always, what could have caused itPoor battery life, had to take mine back to shop for this reason. Took it off charge at 7am and it would barely be used but by 11 it was red hot and the battery drained. Luckily I'd only had it 3 weeks and they gave me a replacement, so far so good with this one. Still not as good on battery as the old curve. Seems as though as handsets upgrade the poorer the battery life.
Recently bought this phone. Overall all a very good phone. The only area of improvement so far noticed is the "Battery Life".

Hey guys , I was just wondering if anyone of you got the white bold 9790 , cuz I wanna ask if there's a black frame on the screen ?
Plz reply ASAP cuz I'm really confussed whether to take the white or black ....
Thanks in advance :)
while every single bb user complains about poor battery life, rim just ignores their customers' grievances and makes new phones with even worse battery life. what is with rim and poor battery life on their phones?
While trying to make this phone slim the key boards have reached to the edges making it too delicate and inconvenient to operate. Touch screen is too sensitive and opens up even with a wind.
emez, 14 Nov 2012why rim always manufacture thesame phone every year same reason tht apple makes a new iphone every year
ali!!, 09 Nov 2012Hi, my bold 9790 heats up really quickly, and the battery life drains really fast. For example... moreEveryone is complaining of battery heat, remember the fancy applications where your lights shine different colours for every sms, BBM & e-mail it drains your battery life and the THK poker game also eats battery life, remember to close applications when not using the because if they open they draining you battery life.
So be careful of the applications you download because that is the problem that cause the battery to drain
And for those that are 24/7 on the phone playing games, music and downloading at the same time your battery will drain and overheat and also when the phone charge don't do anything while charging.
You try to run jump and do push ups for hours you won't last an our because you draining your energy fast and when you sleeping your body is charging and you wouldn't like someone to wake you up then you get all moody and don't think straight Y because you didn't get enough rest so think of what you do to your phone before complaining...
I have my phone for just over a year with no problems at all and still performing since I got it and battery life last me 2days.... For me so far I'm still enjoying the 9790.
All those problems I have experienced with my 8520 and that's where I realise not to do so with my 9790...
