I have been a blackberry fan for many years now, but recently I picked up ... BlackBerry Torch forum
I have been a blackberry fan for many years now, but recently I picked up a Samsung Captivate. The Captivate is great in many areas (media playing, web browser etc), however only sub par in other important areas like making calls texting etc.
I now find my self wanting my Berry back. Although my Curve was not the best at browsing the web or viewing Facebook etc it never let me down when it came to being a phone even after drops etc.
At this point I am really thinking of putting the Captivate up on ebay and picking up a Torch. But just had a few questions before I do so. I know there are many reviews on the web but just wanted to get some opinions of fellow berry users.
1. Have there been any serious issues with the tourch or the new OS?
2. Is there a working Google Voice app. for the new OS?
Thanks in advance.
No serious issues to report, Froggy.
When you say "working" Google Voice app, what do you mean? I have the app on my Torch, but have never actually used it. I've made a couple of test calls and it seems to work fine.
I had read some place that they Goggle Voice app was not working on the Torch. But if it is for you thats good enugh for me
And thanks for the report, I just wanted to hear from a fellow user that it was ok Wanted to make sure I wasnt going to buy a storm
Yeah, I made two calls right before I posted and they worked.
Funny, though because I tried using the app on my 9700. It uses some access number to make the call and some dude kept answering the access number, so the call never went through.
Seems to be working fine now, though. I called my office number and the caller ID was my GV number.
Might want to read thbassman's review here.
Thanks that answer the remainder of the questions I just came up with..
Time to hit up ebay
thanks for the props Roger!
