"Phone mostly good"on by tom-1
Pros very sleek and attractive. New operating system #6 is no conparison to my old curve.. Has touch scrolling on screen and also heat sensitive trackball like apparatus. Has separate slide out keyboard. Very easy internet usage.
Cons when i first got the phone it seemed to lock up a lot when trying to load internet pages. I'm now thinking this was from a cheap aftermarket adapter i bought for charging - was shorting something out.
The phone has a slide out keyboard but when in the
Summary I kinda wish the two parts that make up the sliding mechanism had less gap to make it easier to press the buttons without pushing the one slide against the other. BUt i can live with it. I also wish the phone had a page down function by pressing the space bar like my old curve did.,
A minor complaint is i wish the alarm clock had a key to lock and unlock the adjustments since they are very easy to alter when the alarm clock app is open.
I got the phone refurbished and free from att.
Pros *It's a really nice looking phone
*The touchscreen is awesome and it's well made
*Has a decent sized screen
*The option of qwerty keyboard or touchscreen keyboard is nice
Cons *Its slow, and very sluggish.
*U can only have 2 BIG apps on phone before its even more SLUGGISH
*The call TALK sucks, people can only hear every other word you say
*The phone freezes constantly
*I got a replacement phone, its as bad as the first
Summary Bottom line is I wouldn't recommend this phone to anyone until they have worked out the kinks and upgraded the functional portion of this phone. If I would have known about all this with this phone, I would have chosen another phone and I in fact will be returning this weekend. I have had this phone for less than 30 days...you decide if you really want it or not.
Pros -sleek shiny red shell. Its bright screen and useful apps, flash on camera (but only med. quality pics).
Cons -browser constantly froze up & locked screen.
- It clicks on apps unintended when attempting to access something else.
-decides to 'reject' the only password I was using, & after 10 attempts it automatically resets itself; erasing all your inf
Summary Don't be fooled by the pretty crimson red shell Like I was. Unless this phone is given free, it's really not worth the investment. Pics are not all that great (even WITH a built in flash). The pop-down keyboard was cool, but the shifitn back & forth from keys to #'s wasn't as smooth as it could have been.
I returned it within a week and got the iphone 4. And Im sooo much happier & hassle free.
Pros Good solid feel, excellent coverage in my area, fairly intuitive way to navigate options. Good online manual. Ability to use data svcs on wi-fi, helps to minimaize data charges.
Cons NOT happy about additional $9.95 to use GPS software, but other apps available.
Summary I was looking for an upgrade from a 2-year-old phone with a minimal internet capability, and only the phone pad for texting. After searching my carrier's options with a qwerty keyboard, I was attracted to the Torch. BlackBerry's reputation for solid devices made me want to try it; it seems after about 5 weeks of use to be just what I needed. Sitting outside a store on Sunday morning, I could access their web site to see how soon they'd open. It took a while to set up forwarding my email to the 'phone, and I'm still getting used to the physical keyboard, and tweaking the touchscreen and touchpad settings, but I'm still sold on the instrument, and the new WebKit browser.
"I love my phone."on by kaw6065
Pros I like buttons I can touch. I also like the "ball" which is now a touch screen. I use it as a tether and it works great. It has the advantages of a touch screen and still buttons I can push.
Cons It only has 4 icons available at all times while my Bold had 5. And of course there are a limited number of apps that I can download.
Summary Its a great phone and I love it. Easy to use and great for what I need. I would recommend it for anyone that wants a phone that works for you. Big screen, lightweight and and has big touch screen and real buttons. I sell real estate and I use it all the time. There is nothing that I need that it doesn't do for me. It has a fast browser, good size and weight and good sound system. It is perfect for me.
