I have bought the Blackberry Bold 9700 in April 2010 on orange, for £25 a month for 24 months with an initial starting fee of £100. I was previously an iPhone loyal but this phone really has converted me. This has to be the godfather of all Smartphones. Its great for sending and receiving e-mails...

I thought long and hard about the purchasing of a new phone, I read many reviews, scoured through magazines and visited more shops than I care to remember. I eventually settled on the Blackberry Bold 9700. Everything pointed to it being a fantastic phone, that would cater to my every need. After...

In my experience, I have never had a phone that has fulfilled all of my needs. I can access everything on the phone at the touch of a button and important features aren't hidden. The qwerty keyboard makes texting, emailing and browsing the internet simple and fast and txting back is no longer a...

I have had my Blackberry 9700 for a couple of months now. I use it for a wide range of features: checking emails on multiple accounts, playing games, staying connected with friends via blackberry messenger (BBM), text, and by Facebook. There is no end to what you can do with a Blackberry. With...

I recently upgraded to the Blackbery Bold 9700 from the Blackberry Storm and can honestly say I would never look back. At first I was a bit unsure of the keypad with the buttons being so small but within a matter of days I was used to them and find them exceptionally easy to use. The phone is...

think ill start with the look of the phone. i personally have it in the black, which looks very professional, and sleek :). it has a glossy finish, which is very chip resistant ( i know this as i've dropped it many times, and still looks like its brand new), and also has a chrome-silver look band...

I bought this phone as my secondary phone for business use in November 2010 after taking "expert" advice from a sales representative from the O2 store. To start having the phone was an exciting change from the iPhone that i use in personal life and i was enjoying the set up and workings of the...

Appplication catalogue is not the best

All round very good phone. Easy to use, the querty keypad was a little arkward at first having not used something like this, however once used for a while this became second nature. Internet access is very good when connected through a wireless network but a little too slow if not. Accessing...

Fun, great messaging tools,Clear screen.

Small buttons might effect people deifferently

First of all the Blackberry Bold 9700 looks fantastic, With its sleek design and silver finish it certainly looks the part. But whats it like to use.... When i first got it out the box i was shocked at how long it took to switch it it can take up to five minutes to turn everytime i turn it off...

functionality, price, battery life, messaging

screen size, looks, usability

After destroying an iPhone 3G I took the decision to try a blackberry bold 9700. The reasons for this - a colleague raving about it, the price per month (35 pounds), the functionality compared to the 3G (copy & paste, bluetooth and BBM etc!) As a visual, creative person, I was in heaven with the...

Ease of use. BlackBerry Messenger

The browser is not the best mobile browser.

I have had the BlackBerry Bold 9700 for a few months now and love using it. It has everything I need for personal and business use. I find the email set up very easy to use. The internet is also very easy to use although the browser (I believe BlackBerry are working to improve on this) could be...
