And yes the camera doesn't have autofocus it's emfocus or All focus* because of the slim design they sacrificed it. But I could praise the reception or signal of the phone. It is strong but considering the price this Bold is like a toy painted in gold. I mean better wait for a month or two till the value price becomes lower.
Had This Phone for 2 days now. And I had all the models of the Bold since 9000, 9700 and 9780. And this Bold by far has the highest price point. But the improvement was all about the screen you can't notice a pixel or blurred font like the iPhone 4. The software doesn't have bugs and yes it is really fast interface responds very well and the keyboard are the best. The only reason I can't recommend this phone was the battery life, pick a 97xx series or Torch if your a heavy user of facebook and social apps, email or browsing the net. This doesn't last a whole day or even at evening. I was at the mall with 52% of battery and it took just an hour it's dead of using BBM and facebook app, I had to buy a charger since Our conversation was important I was so disppointed. But If you don't mind buy it. Overall it's an improvement while sacrificing the battery.
last charged 6 am yesterday , now its 3 am three more hours with 50 % still to go ,wifi, i have mp3 ringtones , bebuzz runing , msn nd watsapp for the last 3 hours ..., i most admit i was scared from what i read but the battery is not an issue , haters talk shit, but the camera is more like 3.2 mp
BB phones are rip offs, especially with those compulsary BB monthly plan. Compare to any other smart phone, other than push mail, there is really nothing to brag about this phone.
Nikolas, 01 Sep 2011Does it EDIT excel documents???No, it doesn't and that sucks at such a high price. Premium phone but not this premium feature!
Though I havent used the edit function in my BB 9700 in the last one year, you never know when this would come handy.
We are almost hit year 2012 and blackberry still have battery issues in there devices !
Battery doesn`t work good you have to recharge every day otherwise it will be shutdown. his is the negative point about this cell
Brandon, 01 Sep 2011why on earth would you old fossils want to have FM radio on your cellphone? There are other wa... moreFm Radio? Do you live in what planet?
Of course is needed, some data plans are very expensive.
having dozens of buttons + navigation pad (i tested one of BB 9700 and it is wonderfull) - why i would ever need touch display?
I would trade touch capability for bigger battery and KB support for my language. Native support like in Android, iphone, Symbian.

dick, 02 Sep 2011just like iphone they do not have radio function... but u can download radio using app world!It is nice.
No front camera, no FM-radio, No FM-transmitter and so expensive. Even the camera is ordinary.
I pick Nokia E6 every day in the week instead.
