Bad: no auto focus and flash
Comment: BBM ROCKS
I BOUGHT THIS PHONE 2 DAYS BACK
Good: Email setup
Bad: freezes,crashes, have to restart following app install/uninstall, very limited app,no warning when battery is low
Comment: The list of negatives about this phone goes on.
The price of this phone defies belief considering what you get for your money. I can't believe anyone can give this phone more than 2 stars. The phone suddenly shuts down wthout warning when battery is depleted and takes longer to reboot than any other phone i've ever owned.Tiny screen. Can't zoom in on some email articles. Limited free apps available and half decent apps are very expensive.l would't own it had my office not purchased it.
Bad: does not support flash
Comment: love this phone, good for social networking, taking photos & keyboard..
Comment: GET HTC
Comment: get htc
Good: keyboard is ok
Bad: loads, internet is bad on it, no touchscreen, hard to use, annoying, slow to turn on, bad battery life
Comment: so bad, get an IPHONE OR HTC (desire/sensation/wildfire) they r wayyyyyy better i had the bb bold but i got rid of it and got a htc wildfire now I LOVE IT
Bad: Honestly From What Ive Read , Nothing.
Comment: Ive Read About It , I WANT IT !
Seriously This Is Better Than The iPhone , Way Better Ive Used Both The Blackberry And iPhone Keyboards Better , Way Better. The BBM Is Useful To Me Also As Nearly ALL My Mates Have The BB.
Thats All I Have To Say.
If I Was Going To Sum It Up In 2 Words I Would Say:
Good: Great design, easy to type.
Bad: Battery isn't the best.
Comment: Recently, got treated to this phone. Easy to type, easy to use, really fast software, BB 6 software, great camera and all that but battery life isn't that good. However, dropped it down toilet as very addictive!
Good: I like how the OS has been updated, the camera actually has a flash(unlike the curve I have now..) and it's 5MP, also that the RAM space has been increased so it shouldn't freeze as much as the curve.
Bad: I was only worried about getting the white one - that it would get dirty easily, but turns out - just use nail varnish remover, works a treat!
Comment: I was looking for a new Blackberry as the OS on the curve is outdated. So I searched for the Bold 9700, got interested until I saw this. I did the comparing thing on BB's site, with Bold 9780, Bold 9700 and Curve 8520. This one came up as the best. Just wish I could find a handset only deal that is a reasonable price!!!!
