I love my new fone....however, I'm getting some freezing up. It fell once but I don't think that has anything to do with that freezing up problem.
not the best phone i have ever had, i thought id choose blackberry as a change, alot of friends had the phone. within the last 12 months, i am now on my 3rd replaced handset, memory low, even with a 8gb memory card installed. wipes photos and then can not find them. in general, i wouldnt tell anyone to get this phone. has put me off blackberrys full stop.
My Experience with this phone is memory leak, from time to time free memory will go low and at the time it's very low than it need to reboot.
Why is that ??

I used this phone and little while before I have changed my old sim and enter new sim and accidently I click the key "wipe data" without concern. Now I have lost all my photos , texts and other very important storage. so, i extremely want to know is there any way to get back my old storage like photos, texts and others??? plzz help me....
I am an avid fan of Blackberry phones, so much that, i got my first 9860 phone some 5-6 months ago. i bought with 7.1 upgrade, and installed an 8gb card.
Been reading the reviews for quite some time now. I think people who are complaining, dont know the perfect use for such a beautiful phone. All my personal and business requirements are perfectly accomplished.
Used other phones as well, but the features i got with 9860 are incomparable.no iphone, or android provide so many functionalities as this one.
1 suggestion to all users. Try to learn about any phone, before even commenting. Don't use smartphone if u cant handle device smartly............
it is a excellent blackberry full touch screen device been using this phone for 4 months now and is fantastic no lagging and no hanging it has a good processor and for anyone thinking of buying than go for it because its worth the money!
There are lot of problems occurring in the software.The set has been replaced twice within an year still of no use.Disappointed with the set.First time had bought Blackberry set.Disappointed.Auto dialing and so much of other activities keep taking place on its own.
It is a nice phone and it's touch sensibility is superb but the free apps in this phone is very few and not good
and the other payable apps is also very expensive, in comparing with other blackberry phones it is the best but with other smart phone it is....................
I have had this model with me for the past 9 months or so, and frankly I was quite surprised to see the attacking comments on it here. For a starter, I knew from day one when I got it that it is not a "Top-Of-The-Line" model, simply I was looking for a blackberry, with reasonable camera and touch screen. This one filled all the blanks perfectly. I've been a blackberry user since the Curve 8900 and it was always just a pure "secondary/work" device besides another main device. I have to say that once I got this I was not sure if I made the right choice given that it is the first ever full touch screen model. I did face the hanging and rebooting out of thin air, but that was just for 3-4 weeks from using it and then I found tips and tricks that made everything go smooth till the moment I wrote this.
1. Get a new memory card and have it formatted using your PC as "FAT32" or from your device (which I read it is even better) from "Options>Device>Storage and then selecting Format from the options list". I'm using a Sandisk 16GB class 4 card with no issues at all. The First one (also Sandisk, 4GB came with the device) gave me the card reading error several times and I lost a few shots and files because I do a sync twice a week. With the new card, no issues till now;
2. Make sure you get all the updates from Blackberry;
3. Remove languages and applications that you do not use;
4. Go to "Options>Display>Date and Time" and set the "Update Time" to "Manual";
5. Go to "Options>Network and Connections>Mobile Network" and set the "Network Mode" to one mode only (either 2G only or 3G only), not "2G or 3G" as per the default setting;
6. This is mainly for the new Google Maps application, it was running fine until the latest update that happened in November 2012 (or around that time), I tried so many things to make it work via going back to older versions and doing multiple formats (device wipes) and other stuff with no use, then I found a hint from a great person online that mentioned to go to "Options>Device>Maps" and just change the "Map Display Language" to "English" instead of "International" as per the default setting. It worked fine since then and it is displaying other languages (Arabic in my case) as well as English with no issues at all.
7. I have tried using the device with the "Battery Saving Mode" always on and then off and to be honest I got a mixed bag of results. Sometimes it just lives for 2 whole days without issues but the majority is having 25%-30% by the time I go to sleep in the same day (I have the network set to 3G only).
Now, I have no lag in any part of the use, I'm enjoying this device to the point that it is the main device now (not the secondary anymore) and I use it also for my personal emails besides the work one, WhatsApp, FaceBook, RSS from Social feeds, BBM, SMS, Browsing and of course Google Maps besides the usual in/out calls.
One other thing that I have just discovered about 2 months ago, the music player of this device is really nice provided you use a good set of headphones (I'm using it with Sony XB-900 and XB-500) and it is my best mate in my walking/jogging.
Now, the things that I couldn't find a solution to until now (unfortunately it is true, nothing is perfect) is the Bluetooth disconnect and reconnect randomly. First I thought the problem is from my car's bluetooth but it happened with every handset I used (Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Jabra) so I just lived with it and don't complaint about it anymore as it happens just for few seconds every now and then.
Bottom line, this is a really nice device, a true work horse, excellent voice clarity and connection, easy to use and comes handy when needed to take a quick shot or video, has some nice customization (I use the Advance OS & LED to control many things in it from the color of the notification light to the vibrations on connect/disconnect calls...etc), the size is PERFECT for a full touch device, build quality is good.
Having said that, is it the best one I had? It does not have anything that is WOW compared to other devices (its not the best camera around or the longest battery life or the fastest web browser) but again, it costed me less than $300 SIM-free and from this point, it does stand out in the crowd. It's giving me more value for what I paid for compared to almost all the devices I had before, and I've been using GSM mobile phones since 1992 and before that the old wireless devices that we used to carry a suitcase with it for the transmission if anyone remembers those old heavy ones from the 80's that needed charging for 6 hours every 4 hours standby :-). This one is for sure among my top 10 ones.

It is slow, lags, hangs constantly (especially if you type messages at human speed), shuts off itself voluntarily etc. Now it is rendered useless because the charging inlet on the phone end has become loose. I plan to throw it into a bonfire or crush it with my car. Still undecided on that. I will not use Blackberry's again despite using their phones last 3 years.
