    Blackberry 8700g build

    Advertisement



    Does anyone have real issues with the build of the 8700? The one big complaint I have read is that its really lacking in the build quality, with its cheap, plastic-like shell. It has received some serious flack, especially when compared to the older models and I was just wondering if it has been an issue with any 8700 owners.

    Thanks in advance.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~Yep! I have to agree with you. I don't think it is as well built as my 7290 was. For that reason, im very very careful with my 8700g.

    The problem I have is the trackwheel. It seems to become loose/free. Especially with high useage (my experience). However I would not give it up.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~Hey DH, there are shortcuts you can use to spare your trackwheel some excess use.

    Instead of scrolling down with your track wheel, use your space key.

    And instead of clicking your trackwheel to get a link, just highlight the link and hit your enter key. We have a whole thread on shortcuts. I'll go look up the thread and post the link in just a few.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~And here is another. Now keep in mind that not all shortcuts work on all Blackberrys. It does not mean something is wrong with your Blackberry.

    Hope these links help you extend the life of your trackwheel.
