I have the white Blackberry 9800... Its an incredibly amazing phone. I really like this phone and it is by far more superior to the storm 2 which I had. The only thing about this phone is that the speaker is a bit low even when receiving calls and I think blackberry should go into great diliberation about giving all blackberries a built in radio... I know yes there is internet radio but sometimes the network fails or sometimes its too slow to properly stream radio... Other than that this phone is the bomb!!!!!!
i really want this phone but i don;t know if it is any good, what does everyone else think...??
Can anybody help me out here. i just recently got me this 9800 bb n contract with mtn & are subscribed to the BIS service. the issue here is that i am being chraged for some internet sessions whcih mtn cant seem to explain. i dont stream or purchase any apps. i have been a few times on BB app wordk & noticed that i am being charged after downloading a free app. it does not occur everytime thow. i have a top up plan & it takes from my money in fractions of 10cents to 50 cents to 2cents.
I really like this phone
By the way The torch have the auto rotate screen But They didnt take about it
(Accelerometer sensor for auto-rotate)Gsm Arena you should Fix This Mistake ...... write It with the sensors list
I had my phone for less than a month and it heats up when I'm browsing or when I'm using apps that needed online connectivity...I was practically one of the 1st people to get it from my provider (smart infinity) I wasn't dismayed at all with the aestheics of the phone but was dismayed with the battery life and the issue that I've had now I'm waiting for a replacement unit that may take like several months before I get my hands on...love TORCH but not the issues and the support I'm getting from my provider and the supplier (navare)
asheeqah45@#, 13 Mar 2011hey is a blackberry worth purchasing?i want to buy me one but not sure if i will like itThe utility of phone only depends on what features you are looking for.
It is extremely good as a Business phone - to avail of unlimited emails, browsing(though excellent is quite expensive), MS-office apps and the bets of all - Unlimited BB connect!
But as a lifestyle phone - for looks (Samsung is better), for lifestyle (Sony or LG) and durability (Nokia)

heY guys just wanna know how responsive is the track pad. I struggle to navigate with mine. Is it defective?
Shady, 10 Mar 2011honestly guys what is the battery life of he Torch. i am in the middle of choosing a nokia N8 ... moreIt's alright.. mine works approx 1.5 to 2 days after heavy use whilst paired to the bluetooth handsfree as well.. lower the screen brightness down to around 60% and you're at a good spot.. it's set at 100% by default and seems way too bright that way.. plus eating at your battery..
Frustrated, 11 Mar 2011Some missed calls are only found under the Phone icon and some are only found under the Messag... moreHonestly, the BOLD 9000 was a far superior phone, very user-friendly, perfect size, keyboard was good. I hate the touch screen of the torch - you can accidentally put a call on hold when your ear is too close to the screen while talking to someone!! so annoying!screen is a step backwards, it has not lived up to expectations, i am so disappointed with this phone i am thinking of switching to the bold 9780. I wish the would release an upgrade of the bold 9000.seriously.
hi everyone. i just want to know if this phone really if phone really is laggy or slow in performance? i'm about to buy this phone, so i really need your opinions thanks!
