I was a diehard iPhone user until it started playing up. Finally managed to get O2 to bring my upgrade forward & opted for the Torch. This is my first BB & I am so glad that I decided to change. It literally does everything. It is a good looking handset, packed full of features & NO RESTRICTIONS as to what you can do (unlike the iPhone! ).
Battery life is good, but be sensible with what apps are left running as this will obviously impact battery life, as with all phones.
As with all BB, this syncs perfectly with iTunes & transfer of data is not a problem. It comes with a slide out keyboard which is useful for long text, email's but the touchscreen does just fine, very responsive & very easy to use.
If you want to break away from the iPhone crowd, I highly recommend the BB Torch
super hopeless phone by bb,very expensive,not handy,i am very disappointed
I've got bold 9700 and iphone 3gs, thinking of trading them in for this torch, can you sync itunes with the torch? and am i worth going for it or should i just stick with what I got. too many choices with smart phones! Someone help me decide!! PLEASE!!
when on call waiting .. screen of bb remains off .. how to turn it on so that i can see who is on call waiting:(
Please help me.I receive the message not complete.if the message be more than i.e. 5 lines I do not receive the message complete and at the end of line 5 of message I see this sentence[receiving text].what shall I do?
I own one and I love even though I don't always use BIS. I still enjoy some of the apps.... And I'm 11 so I don't know if the older crownd would enjoy it. I was going to get a white one but I decided to get the black beacuse my old blackberry wad the curve 8520 in white.. If I we're you I would get a white one if you had a black one before.. Over all it's the best phone I ever had!
thinking about switching from iphone, only thing is this doesnt have an ipod. Does the battery drain quickly if u put music on a memory card and use the torch?
hi, 27 Feb 2011i m not able to set up my email any ideas?????????you should have set up options if your trying to add an email to your phone.
This phone is a dog. It's difficult to use, ugly, bulky, illogical to operate, decides to open and close menus all on its own, the track pad does not work properly, neither do the apps. It can’t even play You Tube when you click on the icon that comes with the phone. I hate it and wish I had bought an iPhone 4 instead. There have to be better phones out there..
Ooh!wel the 9800 its a very cool phone.You know why? because its best of both worlds,keypad and full touch screen,if you dont like touch you can always use your keypad and vice versa.
I receive an attachment email from my friend in which that email contains wmv files, I downloaded and couldn't play that video. Anyone know why?
My torch is lagging as well and not keeping charge. Now it heating up air the bottom half of the handset. Please someone, tell me what's going on :-(
