Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on it once you have had it for a few days
For the three years <> that I've been here at the Stacks, I've leaned towards older models of BlackBerry. When the 8700 was all the rage, I stuck to my guns and continued to use the 7290; I hung on to my aging 8700g when the Pearl Flip came out; and for the last few months I've used my little 8100 Pearl until the keys are worn down. My logic was that if an older Berry still performs well, and does what you ask of it, why lay out the extra cash for bells and whistles you don't need?
Well, I guess I'm changing - I just ordered a new 9700 Bold from Tmo, pretty inexpensive with the two-year contract. Looks to me like it's gonna be everything I liked about my old 8700, plus some. Shipping UPS Ground, it will be at my home midweek next week - and believe me, I'm going to run it through the circuits and let you all know what I think! BBut first off, I'm not getting rid of the 8100 yet, if the 9700 is a dud I may be running back to it . . .
Congrats, Mark! Hope you like the 9700 as much as the rest of us do!
you wont be dissapointed
When i say i have Bold family phones, I meant it, from the older to the younger, even the unborn ;)
Congrats Mark. I think you will be pleasantly surprised and await your critique.
PS-it wont be a dud
Galaxy S4 Red
I absolutely love mine....I got rid of my 1st one (not sure what I was thinking) and luckily my wife wanted an iphone so I got her 9700 which was a month newer than my old one. Its a keeper man for sure.
I think the thing I'm most interested in is studying through five point oh. . .
I ran 5.0 briefly on my 8330 before going Droid, there were some nice features, loved the threaded sms....but it didn't play well with my 8330. Way to much hourglass spinning....to the point of often rendering my phone useless. It is quite different though....have fun exploring. What's the delivery date for the 9700?
