I cannot read attachments on my Bold as the typeface is too small and zooming in cuts off too much of the document.
Although the Torch screen is bigger it looks like much of it is taken up with touchscreen. Has anyone tried reading attachments on it and is there any difference/
prakash, 13 Oct 2010This gadget is really nice one still the resolution is lower than expected..guess really perfe... morei was at the Nokia N8 City Launch yesterday and got to play with the handset for about 25 minutes. no doubt the resolution for the photos is very good, but in general the icons and menu's look outdated, as the same have been carried forward since several years. BB 9800 resolution may be lower compared to the other handsets that boast of AMOLED and S-AMOLED and what not, but for a business user like me, the screen res. doesnt make a lot of difference as long as it is legible and clear and does the job.
viper.., 13 Oct 2010The BATTERY is pathetic...the worst talk time in the history of blackberry...think twice brfor... moreMr. Viper
Just wish to tell you that i was the first person in India to Get the BB 9800 when it was released on August 12th in the USA, though it has not been released in India as yet. i ahd the handset with me on August 16th and have been using it since then. i recieve an average of 40 emails a day, send about 100 text messages, about 50 BBM messages and talk for about 3 hours a day. the battery lasts atleast 36 hours before it comes down to 15% and about 40 hours before the handset shuts down.

First of all, to all you 9800 Torch users & non-users thinking to get one... The Blackberry 9800 Torch is by far the best mobile device solution!!! As to some of you who are trying to compare the 9800 with the Iphone4 or the new OS6 vs android2.2, you CAN NOT compare the two against each other! It is impossible to do as they are two VERY different solutions!!! Iphone4 is a great toy as to the 9800 Torch is a business or personal solution! This is what Blackberry is about, not the phone but the solution that they offer the user, may it be business or personal!!! So it comes down to this... if you are looking for a great new gadget, get the Iphone4 BUT if you are looking for a great solution, get the Blackberry 9800 Torch!!!
This gadget is really nice one still the resolution is lower than expected..guess really perfect for business class people
The BATTERY is pathetic...the worst talk time in the history of blackberry...think twice brfore buying....

BLACK HARRY, 11 Oct 2010wow!.. its not a touch screen phone rite??
im surely gonna get this one!Hi Black Harry
Its a dual function fone. So it has a security of the qwerty keypad & the touch screen - the best of both worlds.
Can anyone teach me how to tether with the Torch. The mobile internet icon on the bottom left on my DM6 disappear after i sync with the torch. any way to fix this?
I got the 9800 TORCH and i love it! Its a very good phone does everything other than drive a car or cleane the house lol!! There are so many new phones out there its hard to compare but the Torch in my eyes is the best. Would reccomend it to all BB users and non BB users!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
