Bought 9790 yesterday and testing battery life on standby situation. Started testing at 8am, and the battery remaining at 23:15 (15hrs15mins from start) is 85%.
Will continue testing.

I have been having the phone heat up as well and with limited use, the battery life on the 9790 only last max 5 hrs and if you now near a power point, you have no phone, totally ridiculous. If any one has any suggestions on what I can do, please let me know.
RB, 03 Apr 2012A lot of refurbished blackberry phones are being shipped to underdeveloping countries. You mig... morehow could we search or know if the handset is on the latet manufactured batch is there a site so we could check on it?t.i.a.
Kanishka, 02 Apr 2012I had earlier posted my views about this phone. It's been 2 months and I must say, regretting ... moreit happened with me just today :(
my inbuilt memory is now 6 GB, out of nowhere
I even formatted whole phone, still did not get 8 GB back,
if you find any solution, please let me know.
I bought the phone about 2 weeks ago and believe me, its the worst blackberry I've ever used in my life. The phone gets hot unneccesarily and when fully charged, the battery can't even stand more than 2 hours. *crying* or does anyone know what could be responsible for this?

I have faced this problem earlier when I bought BB 9780 and 9800 . But now I finally got a good 9790 which is so nice to use. Who ever is buying BB 9790 try to get from production batch of February or March 2012. Buy for a reliable reseller and check if all accessories included are Genuine RIM products. Although we cannot be perfect in buying but we can be a bit cautious to avoid falling in trap.
its not good i had bold 9000 and bold 9780 they are better than this one cause it has plenty of faults
This phone 9790 has plenty of bugs , why is it that blackberry does not release any software update to fix the problem...... WAKEUP BLACKBERRY....

-Out of nowhere, one fine day I get a message saying "Internal Media Storage Error. Format or Repair?"
I chose repair, and all of a sudden, the total memory (mind you, not free memory) comes down to 6gb from 8gb.
-Every photo has a yellowish tinge on the upper right corner, its not obvious in the beginning, but use a white background, and it becomes pretty obvious.
Let me know if any of you faced similiar issues. Thanks.
I have been a 9780 fan and loved that model every way. I bought 9790 in December 2011. Could not stand it even 2 days. It was horrible. Sold it and waited. Now I got another 9790 from February 2012 production batch. First 2 days it used to become hot. But dont know what and why happened that since that it has been 1 week and 9790 is performing like a king. Much faster than 9780, much better camera, 80 to 90% of battery usage time compared to 9780. I can use it for about 30 to 33 hours on single charge. Not bad as it has touch screen, higher processor and better menus than 9780 which used to last about 35 to 38 hours on charge. I still loves the built quality of 9780 but considering the overall performance I am quiet satisfied with 9790 and enjoy using it. Good Bye 9780 and welcome 9790.
I have this phone its awesome. There is a problem of overheating that I had once and it was because of the charger plug that you get with the phone. If you have the older version BB plug than this will not happen. Touch screen is awesome, a lot of data you can store, slick sexy look. The best blackberry out right now.
I want to buy a Blackberry mobile-may be in a month's time. My requirements are:
1.Good battery life
3.Ease of use(user friendliness)
4.Reasonable camera performance
5.Qwerty key pad
6.Good music quality
7.Reasonable internal storage
What I don't want:
The phone will be used mostly for official work.So, nothing better than BB,I think. Accessing net
for entertainment will be part-time job.
I am a middle level banker and have so far mostly used Nokia phones( using C7 and E72 presently).
My budget for this new handset is around 30K.
Request the actual users to help me in selecting the correct BB model.Or, should I look for some
other handset like Samsung/HTC/Motorola?
