gsmarena, 20 Mar 2012in my opinion this is the best blackberry ever made+1 to this comment :)
Ejimkaraonyec, 17 Mar 2012I hated BB because I don't like qwerty keyboard bt 9810 n this one have changed that. So I ... moreu dont lose your contacts when u change your blackberry , you can migrate them via BB DEsktop Sw and its seamingless to your contacts , the SW automatically update de pin to all your contacts
I have been using the phone for a week now. Previously using other blackberry devices:
Impression so far:
1. Weak battery life (not trying to bore anyone). I feel this is high on priority for a business phone. My old BBs could all at least last 3 days of use. This baby, sometimes can't give 24 hours. I don't play games, I don't listen to music. Just pure work. I.e. Receiving push email often, and BBM. The only consolation is it charges quick.
2.Screen is great.
3. Touch typing, still not get use to it after a week. lots of mistake in typing still. When I switch to my nokia E72, I could feel the difference immediately. If you need to punch in lots of text, this is not the best option. Not as good as Iphone input.
Will i buy it again as a business phone? Yes, for now. The novelty factor hasn't gone yet. The screen is mainly keeping me interested as compared to the other BB with half screen.
I hated BB because I don't like qwerty keyboard bt 9810 n this one have changed that.
So I was going to buy me one when I heard that every BB phone has its own pin number n when u change BB, u lose ur pin. Now that's a problem coz I don't plan on using one device for years n I would love to retain my friends, is there a workaround, pls?
Finally I will love for any of u here that have used android phone(s) to tell me how this phones touch screen preforms.... Reason ....
1. The onscreen keyboard of 9800 is useless n I would hate to see I am stuck with such in a device like this that has no additional hardware keys.
2. I am currently using samsung galaxy and I would hate to go from smooth swyping to ...
Finally I don't hate BB, not anymore. So please don't rain abuse on me, just help me with the questions. Thank u all.
This is the BEST BlackBerry mobile yet. Blackberry phones lacks features which other mobile offers currently. But the blakcberry OS is the best mobile OS n there's no comparison for it. I'm using just because of its, though it doesn't have front camera,video calling, jst 5mp camera, poor battery. BlackBerry should pay attention towards mobile features & must introduce newer features phone soonest..... We are waiting for it.
It is a very nice phone but the battery is simply a joke... It is worst than the phone of 15 years ago. It is just a month since I had with all the proper discharging and charging procedures and if you are leaving home early with very basic usage (no bluetooth, no wifi, no web browsing) just calls and BBM instant messaging and of course some emails (just 16) one hour of phone calls in excellent reception it simply will not last the day. I unplugged it in the morning at 9 and by 10 in the evening that I returned home the battery was at 10%. My previous Nokia X6 with heavier use (apart from the email service) was lasting 3 days before it went dead!!
Karurosu, 13 Mar 2012I got mine 4 days ago, its a good and powerful device, the only thing i dont like is the speed... moreHi there, I'm thiking to get this BB 9860 and came across your comment about slow texting. I text a lot too and am a bit worry if the slow texting will annoy me. May I know how annoying it is? If I text a lot, should I just go with bold 9900 instead? I used to have iPhone 4s and didn't have any problem with the texting, so can I say that BB9860 would be similar of that iPhone 4s in texting speed? Thanks!
Listen to yourselves, you lot that are always moaning about the battery life, you do go on!!! I've had this phone for months now and the battery can last me for a couple of days with NORMAL phone usage, ie making calls, texting/bbm and web browsing.
Most apps on all phones are well over-rated in my opinion, delete them all and bookmark the mobile websites instead, saves on memory and background battery power.
If you want to play games all day and have the time then go get yourself a playstaion or xbox instead and please, please stop boring us all about the battery life!
I got mine 4 days ago, its a good and powerful device, the only thing i dont like is the speed for texting, its really slow, i text a lot, i didnt have this problem with iphone or lumia 710... but overall i like it a lot...the battery life sucks, so just get a spare and problem solve...
this an excellent phone drawback is on the battery cause i have to move with the charger advice 284b5575
