7.1 offers application management and wifi hotspot to the 9790. the application management when switched on will improve you battery life substantially since it will automatically monitor and close background apps to help battery life. I had 7.0 for the day I picked up my phone and the lastest fall 2012 7.1 bundle was worth the upgrade. Older versions of 7.1 are buggy so look for the recent 7.1 that Rim released sept/oct 2012.
I need your advice..
I'm new in blackberry..
Should I update my OS to 7.1??
What are the difference between 7.0 and 7.1??

this is a terrible phone. i have had it since may 2012. i have had 2 battery replacements and a totally new handset replacement and now im waiting on a totally new phone replacement as it has the same original problems. the battery life is very poor and the touch screen works when it feels like it. it freezes and turns itself off at will and is not reliable at all. my advice.....DO NOT GET THIS MODEL!!
This is to all the seasoned Berry users.
Could you please let me know whether the GPS works (Google Maps / Berry Maps) with just the BBM activated, and NOT the full BIS services?
Thank you, & appreciate the help anticipated.
I need help, I bought this phone sometime in May and now the touchscreen keeps failing. I have to reboot everytime before it works. Is anyone facing the same issue here? Its very irritating and disappointing after spending much to acquire it....
AnAm, 10 Oct 2012Should i buy blackberry bold 9900 or 9790 please suggest me the good one :) buy the 9900, the 9790 is a rubbish phone, poor battery life and the touchscreen stops working after a few months - you have to keep rebooting the phone for the touchscreen to work...i'm still waiting for the official release for 7.1
i can send no problems at all emails and recieve however when i send an email from the phone the handset is doubling up the text in the email and also the signature at the end of the email ( the section that says sent from blackberry device )
Can you shed some light on how to fix this please,
the screen on my cellphone it getting white, i can not see anything. so i need somebody to tell me what i can to so i can see the everything on the screen.
Brill phone - battery life is not as good as most BlackBerry's but still better than most phones out there - lasts a good 15-18 hours of above-average usage.
BlackBerry Bridge makes this phone fly if you have a PlayBook; and the new firmware update adds support for Personal Hotspotting. A cracking phone for the £290 I paid for it. I'd still rather the 9900, but I'd also rather the extra £175 in my pocket too :)
The battery is one of the worst seen in all smart phones.. blackberry needs to do a lot of work to ensure better batery performance... doesnt last for even one day
