    Bold Questions

    Advertisement



    I"m thinking about getting a bold. I guess me and a lot of other folks. I am using a curve 8310 now. Here are some questions I"m hoping you folks with a bold can answer.

    1. Will BBweather work on the bold?

    2. Will google sync work?

    3. Will FreeRange work?

    4. Will Windows live search work?

    I have checked and found that BBalarms Pro won"t, at least not yet. But heard they are working on it.

    Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated.

    TIA

    can't answer those questions bcuz I dont use those programs.....but I can related to moving from a 8310 to a BOLD and all I can say is..... 8310 what ?

    my experience with the bold has been nothing but pleasure......it's like having your first BB all over again....we all know that feeling we all got when we first got our first BB.....well that is how it is with the bold...

    I agree when it comes to the Bold there is nothing better by far. I have had just about every phone you can think of. Iphone included. When it comes to this little piece of heaven I am writing with now NOTHING comes close.

    I'd noticed that BBAlarms Pro wouldn't take my reg #.
    Everything else transfered and worked, though I couldn't find Facebook icon.
    Glad you guys can work with that browser. Was a deal breaker for me

    what's wrong with the browser...? I think it's great - far better than my 8310 experience online...

    Facebook icon is probably in downloads or applications.

    Hey everyone,

    Thanks for the inputs. It has been very helpful.

    I just got back from looking at a bold and I am very impressed. The screen is outstanding and it is fast.

    I might go back and get it, but still debating it, in my mind. My curve has really worked well and hate to give it up.

    Again thanks for your input.

    How long is it lasting? Can you get through a day?

    Whatever you do, keep your Curve, as you may be surprised like many of us with the problems the Bold has. In which case your Curve will look really good and you will be glad you kept it. After a few days of very intensive usage and evaluation of my Bold, I just could not live with the problems. Be advised. Hopefully if you go for it, you will be happy but...
    Your mileage may vary...

    Archer6,

    Thanks for the info.

    I take it you returned your bold? If that is the case, I might wait for a while and see what happens.

    Your welcome, I gave my Bold to a friend, and went right back to my oh so nice Curve 8310. Out of all the current BlackBerry's I have the Curve is the best for me. At this point, I'm going to wait until the Curve 8900 is released. I may buy that, or I may wait an additional five months for the 8910 with 3G. I could really use 3G so I know for sure I will be buying that one. I've already seen enough pictures of the 8900 to know that it has a great keyboard with regular keys like the Curve 83xx series. Not the odd sculptured kind like on the Bold.

    archer6,

    I think I will wait also. Even thought the Bold looked so good. That screen is awesome. I am sure the ones coming down the pipe will be also.

    I have not had problems with my curve and do not want a phone that has them. I had a windows mobile phone before curve and it was always freezing up and the battery lasted about 8 hours if I was lucky.
