liked this phone alot, really got into the bbm ,but i found the screeen to small and the internet was slow
I have had this phone for about three years now and it's not the fastestphone out there, I don't think I would get another one just yet. I receive all my calls and no problem with outgoing. It's a phone.. Meh
Although the blackberry system goes down quite a lot, i've had my bb bold for coming up to four years now and although it is cracked etc, it still works perfectly well!
First of all, let's see what the specs have to say:
Quadband, Touchscreen, 5Mp camera, GPS Receiver, 3.5G, wireless, bluetooth, supports microSD, 8GB built in memory, 32 GB expandable memory, BB OS 7, and weighs about 130g.
The few things that jump out at me is: Touchscreen, 5MP Camera, 8GB Built In Memory, GPS Receiver and BB OS7!
I love how the touchscreen ads such an element of fun to this thing. You can zoom in, out, pinch, etc. just like you can on most other touchscreen phones. You also have the option of firing out text messages and bbms at lightening speed with the beautifully spaced out qwerty keyboard (first bold to have a fantastic keyboard, finally!). The browser is fast and easy, the built in apps such as Maps, Compass, etc. are easy to use and work great. You can also add lots of free apps such as Blackberry Traffic in which you can enter your start and end points and it'll guide you around the maze of traffic so you can arrive faster. The 5MP camera doesn't hurt anyone either. It still has the same reliable business features as the old BBs such as supporting multiple emails, including enterprise emails, calendars, etc. Perfect sync'ing between my work and personal emails and calendars. It does all the functions the old reliable BB did, only better. And with touchscreen. Fun!! :-)
This baby has got to be seen to be believed. I can now proudly say I am a BB lover. It's a tool, and a toy. When BB comes out with a new version, it's not just another upgrade to the software, or the edges are sharp instead of curved (ahem, iphone, ahem), but it's an actual true to life upgrade.
I forget what I ever did without my touch screen with full qwerty super fast and beautiful and lovely BB Bold 9900. I highly, highly recommend this to everyone!
