Actually I really enjoy this phone and it replaced an Iphone 4. I went to buy a bold but as an old torch user I've never been fond of the touch screen Blackberrys. I think iphones have the touchscreen response down perfectly, and find anything else frustrating. I've never once had this Blackberry lockup and have never had to do a battery pull in 3 weeks (I'm on At&t). I average 300 emails a day and probably 50phone calls at minimum per day. The reception is perfect and the battery lasts me all day with heavy use. Now if I'm traveling i will charge in the car during the day, but normally it will make it from 7am-9pm every day.

i agree with battery life given phone usage. my bold 9700 with os5 used to last over 50 hours with some serious emailing, chatting and talking (yeap that's over 2 frekin days on a single charge!!!!!).

however os7 devices have been rushed to the market without proper testing.

i am really annoyed that i have to charge my 9900 twice a day with moderate use. curve devices are worse with respect to battery.

My battery life did suck at first (Torch 9850), but after I fixed my 7.1 update it's been great! Even better than my old Tour, which didn't last anywhere near 50 hours with just moderate usage. My Torch lasts almost a full day with just enough usage for my all smartphone needs.

They really need to start advertising these things. They have "Be BOLD." Cool, but what about all the other devices??

How about:

"The PLAYBOOK of your life"?
"Carry the TORCH"?
"Perfection at every CURVE"?

Ooh, that last one was good.

Maybe you should make a business out of this.

EDIT: If I'm not mistaken, the PlayBook motto is something along the lines of "Work hard, Play harder."

Haha well it's been so long since I've seen one that I forgot they even had commercials for the Playbook! ;)

But the only one I've heard is "Powerful, Portable, Playbook"

And ANYONE can do a better job than RIM's current business representatives (or whatever they're called.

Picked up mine today. I'm not exactly an early adopter type of user, but my old 8830 stopped playing YouTube vids a while ago and PizzaHut online ordering wasn't working from the very beginning, so i decided to go ahead and upgrade. Plus, $70 price tag sweetens the deal (corporate discount).

Everything looks good so far, with a few notes:

1) Tons of junk-ware is pre-installed. Twitter and Facebook aren't priority for a corporate phone, so I had to uninstall it all one by one with reboots after each uninstall. Perhaps there's an easier way of doing this.

2) Skype download page wasn't recognizing this phone and redirected me to Telcomsel version, had to google for a direct download link. The only one I found is for version 1.4, the most recent is 1.7, but 1.4 works pretty well.

3) I used to press "b" to scoll to the bottom of not only message list, but on webpages too. Now this shortcut doesn't work in browser.

4) Battery life isn't impressive indeed.

1. That's weird. They shouldn't already be installed but they should instead have been links that directed you to the download page. Either way, you could push "Reboot Later" Then uninstall all the applications you don't want and then reboot after the last one. That's what I do, same when I install more than one at a time.

2. Sorry I don't use skype so I can't help you there.

3. It should still work. I have the full-touch Torch so I can't look for it for you, but there should be something in the options in the browser about allowing the keyboard shortcuts.

4. Battery life should improve with the 7.1 update. But when it does come out I advise you to install it through desktop manager rather than over the air.

Hope this helps! :)

For your browser shortcut, make sure that the browser shortcuts are enabled.

Open the browser and hit the menu. Look for OPTIONS. Scroll down to ENABLE BROWSER SHORTCUTS. If the box is unchecked, the browser shortcuts (like B to scroll to the bottom) won't work.

Your link is 1.4.0.13, 9630 is 1.4.0.7. So it's better, but still not 1.7 Telcomsel users receive. Thanks for the tip.

Another thing that I hate -- and that seems to be generic for BB OS -- I can't connect to Wifi with a hex representation of the wireless key (like "a76efb8c828a8d32167294d6655555b6ad70966184ba60666666669217c979a8b"). It's not a problem for Android-based phones, iStuff, Windows PCs, Macs etc., but on Blackberry the last (64th) byte won't fit into textfield.
