Well finally i've got it, and it's all i want from a cell phone. aMAZING
good handset to have with amazing features that will suit any user of web an apps just hope it cost lesser than what looks or can do for you
Hey Blackberry people listen to me what i m saying if u want to come up in d market then simply u all hv to provide/Add almost all d features/specifications in one Mobile like other company has. Rest of d features r ok in Blackberry but in addition to that why dont u give Radio, High Resolution, Dual Camera, Bass Boost sound in Mp3 player, torch, long battery backup, this will definately give boost to d company. I know it is for official use but giving all d above features will not let them down or nothing will harm them if they dont want they will not use it and if they want let them use it simple.
Mr.T, 29 Sep 2010Hi, can anyone tell me if the Blackberry Torch (unlocked) will operate fully on a network th... moreYes and no. Yes, you can use it to make phone calls and such. But if you want to use data, you'll need to connect to a network with BIS or BES. Without those, you can't go online (there's always Wifi, but that's very limited...)
can anyone tell me if the Blackberry Torch (unlocked) will operate fully on a network that doesn't offer them to customers??
aparently the torch is made out of the best materials thats why its so expensive beeing about £650, hope CPW get unlocked variants instead on Voda or orange locked ones, as o2 dont have a £40 or £45 BB tariff im guessing they wont be getting it till a bit later
when closed its the same size as a bold 9700 but when open obviously bigger but i was expecting it to be slightly smaller but eh i probably wont get one :(
the touch screen on the torch is really desent, nothing like the storm which isnt a real touch screen really.
thing is though it is just another blackberry nothing new, also confirmed by blackberry direct there will be a new bold possibly for christmas, but they havnt seen the prototype yet so hopefully its something slightly new with a update which wont have the common 'app error' message :)
A main problem with this handset is surely as usefully reported by the review here that the call volume is law too quiet. Does anyone know if this is capable of being fixed with an update of firmware or something, or whether it is a fixed characterstic. For me it is a serious issue, as call quality is surely paramount in a phone. Any informed comment on this would be really helpful.
do you guys know if htere is a web browser that is compatible with the torch ??
is the screen as good as other capacitive screen phones in the market???
Torch 9800 is everything you could wish,yesterday i return my iPhone 4,enough is enough,must stop this "iphone mania"/made in china/..
Use the comparison function on this website and compare it with the elderly Samsung S8000 Jet. Considering the age of that phone, it still comes out way ahead over the torch and the price is now considerably lower. Do RIM do any market research? Perhaps they don't know how. I am available for consultations.
SMART BOY, 25 Sep 2010BB OS is SLOOOW, I prefer Nokia E7 or Galaxy S.. torch is stup*d choice phonenew operating system!! -_- It's not slow and yeah it's meant for buisness and not games and stuff...hehe
ugly phone ugly ugly..... super ugly phone..... look like old XDA IIs ugly ugly don't waste your mney instead of buying and wasting your mone to any blackberry phone buy iphone or other smart phone!!!!
