i am thinking on buying my first bb someone recomend which one should i get i,m caught between the torch and the 9780 pls help
some Blackberry's users had experienced cant browsing in Torch, how to troubleshoot it?
I find difficulty on using the camera. It takes pictures and all but does not save them to the device memory or the memory card.
Are there some settings that must be set to use the camera?
This phone is the worst Blackberry a lot of failures, the software cant manage all functions, battery is dead in 8hr stand by

She is a BB fan as u already know I'm sure and has a... moreHey bud, I am fine, thanks. Aliza says hi to me? hmmm, hello to her too. Is she ur sister or something?
Btw, ur keeping your fingers crossed because shes getting the E 7, lol.
The Arc is nice, but generally I don't see a big difference compared to the x10, I hope SE doesn't take the motorola razr route...
Was interested to get the E7, but I really don't see a reason or ned to buy. Very similar to my n97, and nokia imo doesn't have a good voice quality which is the most important thing in a phone and funny thing is no one ever asks about the voice quality in a phone, only the fancy features!
bb on the other hand has the perfect all in 1 messaging device, perfect, I'll say this 1 more time, perfect voice quality reception.
hey frenz, urgently need ur suggestions. i m confused between bb torch and htc desire Z. Which is to go for n which has better battery life...? plz reply, thanx in advance.
BB has not done the best job with the Torch and I was hoping that it would be something different,so I think the 9700 is by far the best BB at the moment.
one of the big differences i noticed was how much more memory the torch has over the 9780. im trying to decide between buying the bold or the torch ... can anyone comment on why i would or wouldnt need that much memory in terms of downloading apps n stuff or anything else

mike x10 bb torch us, 25 Jan 2011Hey, I remember you from the x10 forum, so your looking to get 1 for your girlfriend.
hmmmmm.... moreHey mate, how are u? :) Aliza says hi :)
She is a BB fan as u already know I'm sure and has a BB bold 9700 and was fighting for the torch for months now, finally took an off from work and went to this store where she got to see the torch. But she didn't like it, so she is gonna stick to her bold 9700... will be buying her E7 instead and she seems to be excited about it :) keeping my finger crossed :p
I'm thinking of an Arc but gonna wait for other manufacturers to come up with some competitive phones. X10 is doing a great job for me so far and is my primary phone :)
Ravz, 24 Jan 2011I believe you have the bold and the torch as well :) is it worth an upgrade mate? from bold to... moreHey, I remember you from the x10 forum, so your looking to get 1 for your girlfriend.
hmmmmm..... All my friends hate the torch but I still got it, the keypad isn't the best compared to say the 9700 or 9780. Other than that its a different looking bb compared to other bb phones.
Voice quality is perfect, camera is good, not x10 quality, for browsing, im sticking with my x10 without a doubt. U should ask ur gf once which phone she likes because I don't see the torch different compared to the 9780 except the slide and touch feature/.
Whats your next purchase? I have lots of phones in my mind from the arc to the E7, also thinking about a win7 phone which will be a new experience.
oh you put about screen wobble it does by about 1mm or so but some say its bad workmenship..I dont think bb are ever badly made and also some give is needed else two side would grind together.

Downsides are worse battery life than bold but should get you thru a day,screen is not as vibrant due to layer installed that gives it better sunlight ledgibility.I got mine second off my mate who has gone back to bold.Now he is more email buisnessy type ,i am multimedia type.I think cam is just the same really but video record is better in torch all else is just the same.
Would i go out and buy a brand new torch if i had a bold in my hands,NO.its to big an amount to pay for virtually same device and battery is worse but still good in smartphone world.Keypad is bit trickier on torch with the chrome sides get in way of productivity
(my mates words).
I like it but do feel the britness of screen is stuck on 50% compared to other bb.
The torch is classier if you get it in white.
Anonymous, 24 Jan 2011The torch is a better smartphone than other blackberrys with system tweaks but generally same ... moreI believe you have the bold and the torch as well :) is it worth an upgrade mate? from bold to torch. Bold that we own is pretty new :)
a, 24 Jan 2011if she wants BBos 6, bigger screen with touch ,bigger cam and good video recordings go for it.... moreThanks :) how much did it cost you? any reviews on the keypad and battery backup. from what I've heard battery drains a lot faster on this model in particular.
[deleted post]That's alright mate. I'm not a BB user. I have an Xperia X10 and I'm an android developer. But my gf is a BB lover coz she finds it less complicated than her Android phone. But just wanted to make sure is it worth the price. As for the same price you get many options from other manufacturers and even on BB you don't see much difference or variety in their stable. I held a BB torch at the mall and the slider was wobbly and screen resolution wasn't upto my expectation..and the sales guy was its an issue with his demo phone.I've been on Gsmarena for about a decade myself and know is the only place where one can look for the info about phones.
She currently has BB bold along with her android phone ...and I wanna gift it to her on our anniv :)
