I currently own a Storm 9550 and am about to move from Mexico to the USA and will be getting a new phone. My current favorite is the HTC Evo 4G with Sprint, but I've always loved my BlackBerry Curve and Storm. So, I might get a White or Red Torch. My only question is about email, currently my HTML email doesn't download images automatically (even though I have it set to). Apparently it's for "security". Does BB6 download them automatically? If not, then I'll be getting and Android device or the iPhone 4. Thanks for any replies!
I have read reviews that the torch gets heated up after talking on the phone for more then 5 minutes, not intending to make fun of the name "torch" but is this true? cause my conversations tends to last quite long.
Imanmanan, 11 Dec 2010ExactlyThanx sir ^^
Oh one more thing i heard that many users talk about the joint of the phone is not really good, it went loose in
2 weeks time
Wats sir opinion about this
How will the blackberry torch screen, colours and contrast compare to the htc desire Z? I fiddled around with my friend's htc desire HD and it looked awesome, was wondering if the torch will look as good?

i just received my Torch yesterday & i wasted no time in fiddling w/ the settings & transfering info over from my Bold, via the DM.
1st & foremost, if any1 has preconceived perceptions of any other models or phone make, u need to compare apple to apple, cant quite compare apple to blackberry (pardon the pun). they're both built for different specifics.
on the whole, the look & feel of the Torch looks a lil more sleek than all other blackberry models, despite its size, it's physically slightly slimmer than the Bold 9000. the interface & transitions may seem a lil rigid, but that's 1 of the many things i actually appreciate in the Torch.
i was quite impressed by the definition & clarity of the screen when trying out the media player/video. but i guess the audio lacks the reverb & sound depth (perhaps due to the compact composition).
camera taking clarity & the different setting available makes it a lot handier for amatuer photography, especially when travel journaling & sharing pics on social network mediums.
i've all along been a fan of qwerty keypads, but it takes a little getting used to, on the touch screen keyboard. alternating between input languages is also very comprehensive, and is a breeze to make the selection. otherwise, the shortcut keys gives you the previous alternate input language. having the luxury of an on screen keyboard, there's literally no need of modifiying the physical keyboard.
with just a few touches & tweaks on the settings via the easy accesses on the homepage, i'm really impressed that i didnt have to refer to the user guide at all.
so far, i've yet to push the limits & punish the specs, to see how valid the ratings are, but this ive a feeling i wont be disappointed.
amrbpc, 09 Dec 2010I am using this phone for one week it is great but I can not download google maps I can not do... morei just received my Torch yesterday, the blackberry maps is already onboard. i've also downloaded googlemaps on my Torch too.

i went through after forum and there are so many users talk about the joint of the phone is not really good, it went loose in 2 weeks time
hi can anyone tell how to activate the vibrator sensitive when we use the touch screen if this phone has this freature.
I had a BB 8520. Under folders you could exclude a folder, not to be viewed by anyone else. I upgraded to to Torch 9800.... Excellent phone! But can not find the command or exclude a folder. Can anyone help me to exclude a folder..... please!!!
I've got this torch just last week. To me we should never pressed the screen just to slide it open or to close it back because this is the most sensitive part. My complaint is that the poor design of the slider touch screen which tapered at the bottom end which is not strong to the push. In just 2 days normal used it had wobbled...
