Oluwa, 15 Oct 2012I need help, I bought this phone sometime in May and now the touchscreen keeps failing. I have... moreGuys, after I did an OS upgrade from 7.0 to 7.1, the touchscreen stoppped crashing and I can see a little improvement in the battery life. The browsing is also faster. I suggest an upgrade if your having any hardware issues like mine.
Hi, I am having the same problem all of a sudden with my Bold 9790. This morning the battery drained and it's overheating- up to 52 degrees Celcius! I panicked and removed the battery, then had to stick it in the charger because the battery drained completely. It's still charging but I don't know what's wrong, Help!!
PS I've only had this phone for a bit more than a week...
Hi, my bold 9790 heats up really quickly, and the battery life drains really fast. For example, I charged it to 80% and went to sleep for about 5 hours, and when I woke up, it was 5%. I tried changing the battery, but the same thing happened. Is there a reason for this? On normal use my battery only ever lasts about 3 hours. I've been using the phone for a bit more than a week now.
I have had this phone for about 3 months. So far I have found it absolutely amazing! It's very quick, good quality camera, location services are great and overall an awesome phone.
I'd advise getting WhatsApp..
The only downside of this phone is the app world, BB need to begin to compete with the Android Market and App store by getting the same apps!
ps, 05 Nov 2012pls update your OS to 7.1. Battery back-up will improve astonishingly!!!how long does the software update take when you do it from you blacberry 9790
i had a bb curve for 2 years on contract,brilliant phone .. it used to freeze and had to take battery out to unfreeze it , but that was near the end of the 2 years , then i upgraded to the bb bold ... bad mistake ... it freezes a lot , gets hot and turns off , battery life isnt good , it has been sent for repair from the phone shop i got it , as its a contract phone it should be replaced, but i was told only repair , but one consolation if it breaks down within a month, they have to renew it , not to a bold hopefully ....
I am thinking to buy one BB, but I would like to get one that allow me to use some sip/voip calls.
Do you know which BBs supports sip/voip calls? this one supports?
i dont know where you got urs but my bb bold battery is doing great. and 2 of my friend who use the same bold 5 doesn't even have any problem with the battery. it can last about 2 day without charging with BIS always on.

Arav, 31 Oct 2012Hi, Does this phone supports skype, nymgo pl suggest me.nope
Hi, please dont buy this phone.. Horrible battery backup and it restarts again and again, actually gets into a restart loop. Tough to manage, one cant rely, battery drains out in 15 minutes at times. Top of that service center guys are least bothered to solve the problem. They will just reload the software every time you go there. Honest review: Phone : 8/10, Company 5/10, after sales services 1/10.
What can I do so that my battery can hold longer? It's battery life does not hold so long!
