I have had a Blackberry Curve 9320 for approximately 6 months. Yesterday it died completely. No life whatsoever. I have tried everything - removing battery and replacing while on charge removing and replacing sim - nothing works. While on the charger the red light comes on for 20 seconds then goes out that is all. It is very annoying because my network provider, from whom I got it, won't replace it but will only send it for repair - so I am without it for 2 weeks.
This is the second blackberry I have had that this has happened to. The first was a blackberry torch which died after 6 months in a similar fashion. Neither of the phones was used a great deal and had not been dropped or had water damage.
I will never, ever buy any blackberry product again - life to short and unreliable.

The phone is is always having battery or OS issues; as its happening to mine presently. Blackberry/RIM don't examine phones very well before producing then for sale. #Fact
The 9320 does have the hotspot option as long as you're running os 7.1 so you may need to do a device software upgrade.

Just to give you heads up guys, VIBER in BB has now been updated with CALL FEATURES. :) I've been using it for the past days already. :B
Apple & Samsung outclass Blackberry by miles with technology and world sales . dont be fooled with blackberry's smart adverts . Listen to the 65 % of Apple & Samsung users not the 2 % of blacberry users .
Been using this phone and it is every penny :) go grab one now! thanks to blackberry :)
Have been using 9320 since Aug 2012
Had heating problems and figured it was due to Whatsapp . Luckly Whatsapp released an update and that resolved the random heating problem. How I figured it was Whatsapp? The inbuilt battery diagnosis tool helped in figuring. It gives stats which app is using how much processing. Whatsapp stats were unusually high.
This was in the initial month. Did not face that problem since,
No other problems so far
I have not subscribed to BIS plans and using regular data plans
Apps like logicmail are good enuf for my email needs
Viber works but on this model voice ip calls not supported
No clue about Skype
Audio quality for songs is good
Call quality is awesome
In a crowded street can carry on with call without the other side getting disturbed by the background noise
When I was using Samsung nexus i9250 people on other side always complained about background noise. This despite dualmic noise canceling. Ridiculous.
I am using sony ericsson live with walkman. I m thinking to blackberry curve 9320 should I go for it or not????

i just have to post this for you guys using curve 9320... if you want to get rid of the heating/hot problem... update your firmware to (7.1 bundle 2301 (v220.127.116.111, platform 18.104.22.168)... ever since i updated mine this heating/hot stopped... remember to thank me when it works :d... i'm not sure i will be allowed to post links on here.. just google the file
