Talking Fruity Diamond review Review with images

AdvantagesConvenience of contact. lots of features, sturdy feel

DisadvantagesConvenience of contact, poor battery life, bulky in the pocket

"...- oops - I mean Blackberry generation. My trusty Nokia was (and still is, for personal use) sufficient - I could make and receive calls, and send and receive texts, and even take the odd picture. What more did I need? This all changed six months ago, when I changed jobs. Within two days of joining, I was given a box, in which nestled a sleek Blackberry 9000, two charging cables (one for the mains outlet, the other for a usb connection), a set of ..." Read review

Advantagesmobile e-mail, excellent mobile phone, SMS/MMS, camera, web browsing

Disadvantagessynchronisation issues, inbox/calendar/contact updates are not transferred

"...glee presented me with a BlackBerry 7100v, a model I had previously used, a model which to put bluntly was close to obsolete by the time my sweaty paws had gotten to grips with it again. Frustrated with the inaction of my peers I went out and spent £450 of my own money on the BlackBerry Bold, the new smart phone from RIM designed to rival the Apple i-Phone. The user interface for the Bold is very similar to the Pearl version with the icons and ..." Read review

BlackBerry Bold 9000 Review

AdvantagesLook & feel; sound quality; fast Internet; range of features

DisadvantagesCamera not great; file transferring is quite confusing

"...narrowed it down to a BlackBerry Bold 9000 and the Nokia E71 - both, I was told, are "fantastic phones", and after having a play with the BlackBerry Bold and Nokia E71 in a phone shop, I quickly knew BlackBerry Bold was for me, and I ordered it the very same day. BlackBerry's have been popular for a while now, and I was eager to know why. They are known for being the phone for business people; however, I don't think this phone should be restricted ..."

To Boldy Go...

AdvantagesLooks good, feels good and has a myriad of capabilities.

DisadvantagesNo touch screen feature.

"_Introduction_ Iíve had my Blackberry Bold 9000 for about 2 months now. Itís definitely changed the way that I communicate in certain respects and made my life a little bit easier in lots of small ways. I find that I am much more update to date with things, like emails and Facebook updates. It helps me to plan the day more easily and get me to where I need to be. Itís true to say that I Ďsurvivedí before I got the Blackberry but itís like anything ..." Read review

The Bold and the Beautiful

AdvantagesGreat looking, very easy to use

DisadvantagesPoor Battery

"After recently getting the Blackberry Bold I thought I'd share my thoughts about it. Traditionally a Blackberry is known for being solely aimed at the business market with one of its main selling points being the fact that you have constant email access which is of course very important for some people. They were not aimed at the consumer market in terms of looks or capabilities. However, the Blackberry Bold (BB) aims to change that. With the ..." Read review

How did we live without the blackberry??

AdvantagesGreat e-mail service, easy to use. Does what it says on the tin!

DisadvantagesSize is not for everyone.

"...pocket? Itís crazy! To me the blackberry bold is the first real step blackberry have made to corner the consumer handphone market and is without a doubt the main rival to the iphone. I have been a blackberry user for the past three years, my first being the blackberry pearl, a small but useful handset, the only thing missing was the full QWERTY keyboard which you do really need. After that phone I moved to the T-Mobile MDA 3 which had a nasty stylus ..." Read review

DisadvantagesPoor Camera Quality, Heavy & Bulky

"...persons handset and as a Blackberry girl if it's an I-Phone, that instantly knocks a few impressons points off the chart as they are regarding with inner raised eyebrows and a 'one of those' looks. I live by my blackberry and the Bold 9000 has been my handset for the last year until this week when I upgraded to a newer model!

An excellent phone with a large array of features - Bold 9000

AdvantagesNice design, large quantity of features

DisadvantagesVery expensive, easily damaged

"...the back is a simple BlackBerry logo and the camera with the flash light. The full QWERTY keyboard that you use on the phone is fantastic, allowing for full texts or e-mails to be written much quicker than on an average phone. Overall, the phone has a high quality look, good for impressing both your mates at the pub and the executives you're trying to sell a contract to! Features This phone has such a huge selection of features I have broken this ..." Read review

Anywhere-anytime functionality.

AdvantagesFreedom to surf and do other things.

DisadvantagesVery expensive, ill-fitting pouch.

"The Blackberry has evolved in society and has become an icon of business, and a regular sight and sound on train and tube journeys in and around London. Business men take advantage of its almost flawless e-mail feature, which allows them to send and receive e-mail on the move. I am not a business user. I am a student, and while this may seem like an expensive toy, the functionality of this gadget is drawing more and more teenagers to it as a valuable ..." Read review

i heart my blackberry

Advantagesit does everything!

Disadvantagesbattery life can be small

"...I have never used a Blackberry before and I must admit it took me a couple of days to get my head around it, that and some help off internet forums as it does not really come with a decent instruction manual, which considering it is so complex is a bit of shame, but I guess those geeks at Blackberry presume you will use the Blackberry website for any exta info neededed. Now for anyone who simply thinks this is just a phone they are wrong. This is ..." Read review

Blackberry Classic

AdvantagesDesign, Multimedia, Keyboard, Internet, Email

DisadvantagesBattery Power, Size

"...to share my opinions about BlackBerry Bold 9000, which is a classic smartphone and suitable for both business and normal usage. I own it about half a year now, so my experience should be enough to sum up some positive and negative aspects arranged according to its components. === Equipment/Items delivered: === - the mobile phone Bold 9000 - a 3,5mm headset with nice inear-headphones (with different earplugs) - of course the battery and a recharger ..."

BlackBerry Bold 9000 Beautiful Smart phone With a few hiccups .

AdvantagesDose everything a smart phone should and with style.

DisadvantagesTrackball is a pain , BIS has to be set up in order to use phone to the max .

"...track ball. Another draw back from Blackberry phones in general is the BIS (Blackberry Internet Service) If your buying this phone and expecting the internet/blackberry messenger/MSN to work from the box think again.You will need to ask your service provider to activate this service which will cost you an extra five pound each month for both pay as you go and contract SIMs. All in all an excellent phone in my opinion provided its set up correctly ..."

Blackberry Bold 9000

AdvantagesEasy to use, pleasent to look at, good battery life, big memory, good camera, easily customisable.

DisadvantagesMay not be for those who prefer a smaller phone.

"...been an owner of the blackberry curve and pearl and the bold by far is the best phone I have ever laid my hands on. The phone is stylish and the format is set out in a clear and easy to use way. Although fonts are limited, the new fonts added to the bold are nicer to look at than the previous. The phone is very easy to customise, with a vast variety of covers, cases, skins to protect the phone, although the phone is very durable. Unlike the other ..." Read review

Quick review of BlackBerry Bold 9000

"The Black berry 9000 is slightly wider than most phones but as you can imagine it has lots of data to store, the package set up through vodafone was a very good deal £35 per month which included a free Blackberry, unlimited texts, 500 minutes, and unlimited access to the internet/facebook. The phone is quite hard to understand initially and if the shop you get the phone from does not set you up properly you may spend days wondering why you can not access the internet. The phone also often resets itself for security purposes im told which can become a pain and there will be a message on the screen with error reseting. I recommend you read through the instructions carefully and once you know what you are doing you will love the phone.
