Just had my blackberry 9800 torch two months ago. I was so excited and now i wouldn't recommend this phone to anyone. it keeps freezing and has this stupid little black timer that keeps running and i cant use the phone.The battery last for three hours only. worst phone i have ever purchased.
dvl, 07 Jun 2012can i get skype on my torch ? Nope no skype for this blackberry gadget, try something that's start with an i and ends with Phone, just make sure you check the skype website for supported models. I think the change will save you some cash if you have a lot of friends on skype :-)
Anonymous, 12 Jun 2012i am deciding to buy a blackberry torch, but wich is best, 9800 or 9810???Stay away from blackberry. You'll regret it after buying it. Don't be fooled by the revies its been getting. The blackberry phone is not worth the money you gonna be spending. I got one no so long ago, and to my dismay was and still am dissapointed. If u don't believe me borrow one & try useful gadgets lyk video call/skype/tango besides the seemingly useleS bbm. U gonna thank me after this.
AnonD-59283, 16 Jun 2012I have this blackberry model, thing is my service provider cannot detect my device, so I canno... moreSimple just change phones and stay away from blackberry. It is just not worth the trouble. U can take it back to the store & tell them it's annoying and doesn't have what you are looking for. Then get a samsung its much better tha bb. U should be able to do a video call with a samsung.
Mark, 07 Jun 2012Screen went dead after the warranty expired....its a pityI guess blackberry sucks hey. We must have been fooled by all these adverts we see. U must try an iPhone that has skype.
hey guys can i upgrade my BB Torch from BlackBerry OS 6.0 to BlackBerry OS 7.0?
Anyone? Thanks in advance c",)
Anyone deciding to upgrade from this to the 9810, I wouldn't do it, I had a problem with this phone where it kept scrolling up, I got my money back and bought a 9810, big no no! It's battery was awful and with everything you did,the little black clock came up constantly, everyone's experience of the phone is different, but this was mine. I'd keep this one!
at&t tells me the 9800 is not compatable with global navigator, anyone know this to be true?

This is one of the worst phones ever. Hardly any apps on my phone but it is terribly slow and freezes often for nothing. The phone always unlocks itself in my pocket and does crazy things like calling people, taking pics, etc. Not to mention that my touchpad doesnt work :(
