Anonymous, 21 May 2009...and what about the storm? is see the 8900 isnt 3G - is that REALLY important, or can one li... moreI used a 3.5G phone for almost 2 years before the 8900, in all that time I only used the internet using the HSDPA connection about 10% the rest I rely on UMTS connection (GPRS), due to the 3G network is stil unstable.
I also did a couple of video phone call, it;s nice but still not much use
so by changing to the BB8900 (non 3G) I missed almost nothing from the 3G phone, I still get my emails, still can connect to my facebook, still can chat on YM.
So I can conclude for now 3G is not mandatory, we'll see how 3G has become in the next 5 years, for now using the BB8900 is more that enough
Anonymous, 23 May 2009Can we edit and do Microsoft office here?if you want to edit office docs, you need to install office to go, cost about $40. I did the office to go installation, and it works great.
ace crush, 26 May 2009guys i need a help, i dont know witch phone must i boucht ,the curve8900( javilin) or the bb ... moreit depends on your needs, usually your line of work or your job specifications will define which one you should buy, to me the 8900 is more elegant in looks than the 9000, but the 9000 is better in operation, cause it's 128mb memory is not shared, instead it has a 1gb internal storage for installing aplications and don't forget the Bold is 3G so can do HSDPA web browsing (don't know if it is really necaessary though).
but I use the 8900 and has installed additional softwares (even a mom up pro program, office to go, etc) to suit my daily tasks and I still have 151mb of memory for operation, so that means my 8900 is currently operating faster than the 128mb Bold.
This is My second qwerty phone and my first Blackberry, last time I used a Sonyericsson P910. In term of specs and features the 8900 is not right there on the top, there are a lot noikas and sonyericssons out there that it better features and specs than this phone, but then again black berry is not only selling handsets they are also selling the actuall blackberry network.
So over all this phone is good and gets me connected always and fast...that what's really matter to me...
guys i need a help, i dont know witch phone must i boucht ,the curve8900( javilin) or the bb bolt im not shure witch one pls help mi
Nicholas, 23 May 2009"SIM card is full! Please delete some SMS messages." That message appeared on my blackberry... moreThere should be an option on there that will show "default storage: sim or memory card. The memory card will be able to hold alot more than your sim card
I have a question for you.
Why does this refuse to pair by bluetooth with a Nokia E51? The versions are just about the same and the encrytpting thing is off. Does it have a problem?

For who is concerned about the battery life, they can buy from store.bbnauts.com higher capacity batteries like 1600 mAh with the same size and voltage compatible to the originals (Japanese cells). Second, there are docks (pods - $25) for BB 8900 where the phone can be laid over night with zero effort for insertion (the phone is just pressing with its weight the pod contacts, not like iPhone which has to be pulled out from pod using both hands); over night the phone fully works and shows the alarm clock and recharges the battery. If you get the above items, I don't see any reason one may still complain any more.
