One of the best phones i've used. I had option of either IPHONE 4 or BB 9800 and i opted for 9800. Tried using both of them at the store and realised that 9800 is far more better than any of its competitor inthe market. I sold my HTC legend and bought this one. And i must say that BB is the best company out there in cellular market. ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS HANDSET.
battery life is awful, but i'd happily charge it every night as it's that good.
What is the battery life like on the BB Torch?
i have this phone its cool nd i love it its like my mini laptop but its alittle fat but still its da best
Will blackberry release a new mobile on this year ? if so what will it be , because i am getting this touch on this march ..
What so funny is that I used all different types of phone, and I told myself that I don't want any blackberry phone, until I got one and the service providers here in jamaica, have an internet packages that was great, so I divorce all type of phone and started to use blackberry, well, except my lg km900 arena, which I bought for my christmas in 2009, well, I used every blackberry in that created, which is in gsmarena, and I now have a bb torch and bb bold 3, I love blackberry, and I can asure you that blackberry is the most used in jamaica, in the caribbean. Thanks blackberry and I am looking out for torch 2 please hurry up. Features that I want on the torch 2 are: the keypad slides sideway, upgrade to 16-32 gb internal memory, 8-12 mega pixels camera, having radio and internal camera, I think those are the upgrades I want, then definately I would by it, no matter what the cost is... Oh another thing, dual sim reader, so I can use 2 service provider at once. Thank you blackberry and keep on making good phones.
I've used BB's in the past and I am currently using the iPhone 4. I find the main thing that keeps me hooked to an iPhone is the iPod functionality, I like that all in one device.
I like BB because it feels like a real mobile/cell phone, it's professional has a fantastic email experience, notifications are great. I'm not a business user, I'm a consumer user when it comes to mobiles/cells so I know BB are aimed at business users and iPhone consumers, however these days BB's have all the fantastic features that a consumer likes to use.
I have learnt that putting music on any mobile/cell device other then iPhone/iPod that it just ain't that good. I have linked my iTunes with a BB device in the past and although it gave great sound, it just didn't feel right. Also most recently I was given a HTC Desire HD and linking itunes music to that device was extremely horrible, Half my music waqsn't supported etc. I never had that issue on the BB linked to iTunes, just that album artwork didn't all sync. Just for that It turned me off wanting to store music on any mobile/cell device other then an Apple product.
Now, I'm really liking the BB Torch, I love the fact that it has a touch screen and keyboard so I am considering whether to sell my iPhone 4 and get the BB Torch and get a Nano/iPod seperatley for my music. I also think having a 16GB Nano would be easier to take to the gym with me.
What are your suggestions or anyone else here think, Is it a good idea to seperate my music and mobile issue or keep it all in one.
I also have an iPad that I use everyday to and from work, so I now rarely use the apps on my iPhone cause I use them on the iPad. I also really only use the iPhone for talk and text and the occasional email. I believe if I had the BB Torch I would use the email only on there and not the iPad but have it linked to the iPad as a back up.
So thoughts everyone, seperate it all or keep it all together.

Not exactly sure why it double presses but it is as irritating as hell! The worst is when it double spaces and puts a . in the middle of a text or email. Other than that, Blackberry is pretty sweet.
j, 03 Feb 2011love my torch! overpriced and featureless,software capable for uncap-able hardware.
Just not pushing boundaries...5/10
lina219, 28 Jan 2011some Blackberry's users had experienced cant browsing in Torch, how to troubleshoot it? download bolt application then u get speed
can someone tell me why , when i dial a number using the keyboard, the number appears twice (i.e, pressing "2" will result in a "22")?
did i change a setting inadvertently, and if so, how do i correct this?
the batt is ok. mine lasts for like 36 hrs and i guess that's more than ok. i text, call and go ol almost all throughout the day so yeah, that's still long.
i don't understand why anyone would claim that this phone is really bad? i own one and been using it for a fairly long time now and it's been really great. the new os is superb. it's not laggish or slow or whatever... the touchscreen sensitivity is very good, too. it's just as sensitive as the iphone. the camera's great. i love the quality of the photos.
Black berry OS in general has some bugs to get rid of wether it is browser wise or applications wise, as for slider phones i think it would be more of an advantage if they had had made this phone a touchscreen with no qwerty keyboard, adding a keyboard just makes it more bulky which is not the wanted direction for most smart phone users in the market, one of the main problems that even the technician could not resolve was if you face any kind of bug or error message in any part of the software you will probably have to re-install the OS all over again which can be really annoying. I am optimistic about the new Tablet blackberry is suppouse to launch this year, i just hope that it is as good as the advertised material promised :P
