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!!!!
Damn!!! i bought the BB Bold 9700 like 3 weeks before i saw the torch and i love the torch and i want to get it. Please does anyone know if i can still use my apps world account to access this BB and i have bought some application on my bold, does this mean i have to buy them again?
Is it true that bb messenger only works on lauched bb mobiles. & not on un offical bb mobiles...(grey market)..cause i have heard that bb strom had this problem after some time..
I think this is what a phone should be. All apps on most phones are gimmicks! The iPhone given, as I can't complain about most things it can do. Now I'm not a die hard apple fan I have tested most of these phones so I tend to say the phone that I LIKE to use, wether most of the time or just miss is the best one.
The best phone I've seen out this year is the iPhone4, But! this is for totally different reasons to why I would own a blackberry. If your a app kid (and given we all are lol) you'll love the apple or droid phones. But if your a serious person who has a phone because you like people wether for business, play or pleasure this phone is for you. Don't worry about screen resolution or even (and this gonna sound funny!!!) battery life, blackberry brings everything together don't know how they just do!!!!!
i know bb is one of the best phone in the world i am talking about BB india
I Owen the BB 9800 now for about 2 months. Is best phone ever BB made after Bold 2 9700. What make it great for me 1) screen 2) keyboard and touch screen same time 3) OS 6 is so much better to use than OS 5. Big difference.
