BlackBerry 6 OS

The BlackBerry 6 OS features a redesigned interface that seamlessly works with both touchscreen and trackpad, includes expanded messaging capabilities with intuitive features to simplify the management of social networking and RSS feeds (Social Feeds), and provides integrated access to the BlackBerry Messenger (BBM), Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, and a variety of instant messaging applications. And its enhanced multimedia experience includes a dedicated YouTube app and Podcasts app.

Advanced Messaging

Messaging has always been a core element of the BlackBerry smartphone experience. With BlackBerry's push e-mail technology, your e-mail will find you without having to initiate a connection. And with the new Text Messages application on the BlackBerry Torch, with support for AT&T's next-generation messaging experience, you'll enjoy group messaging with "reply all" functionality for up to 10 contacts and AT&T's Locations feature.

Locations lets you easily search for points of interest, businesses, and even the your own location, and insert this information directly into a message--all without leaving the messaging application. Using group messaging and locations together, you can arrange to meet a group of friends easily by sending one message to all of them, discussing together where to meet and then sending a map in one threaded conversation.



Pages load fast and there's tabbed browsing so you can have multiple web pages open at once.
Rich PC-like Web Browsing

Enjoy a full-fidelity, desktop-like browsing experience with the revamped BlackBerry Web browser, which includes intuitive motions like pinching and zooming and tabs that let you swap between multiple Web pages.

Universal Search

Looking for something? The new universal search feature scans your folders, apps, Internet, e-mail, music, videos and more all in one search and doesn't stop until it finds what you're looking for.

Multitasking Made Easy

Multitasking is just another one of those things BlackBerry has been doing right, from the beginning. Now RIM has gone a step above with multi-connectivity, which means your apps stay connected whether you're using them or not. Regardless of what you're doing, e-mails, messages, updates, and notifications keep coming through.

All Media, All The Time

With BlackBerry 6, the multimedia experience has been completely overhauled, enabling you to carry, watch and share your videos, pictures, files and more. With Remote Media Sync you can now access your home music library right from your BlackBerry smartphone. Scrolling through your music is as easy as swiping through album art. And you can watch and subscribe to podcasts that are pushed to you as soon as they're available.

Corporate Connections

For corporate users, this BlackBerry device delivers all the enterprise e-mail and messaging capabilities you've come to expect. It's supported on the BlackBerry Internet Service, giving you access to up to 10 work or personal e-mail accounts (including most popular ISP e-mail accounts), as well as BlackBerry Enterprise Server, enabling advanced security and IT administration within IBM Lotus Domino, Microsoft Exchange and Novell GroupWise environments.

AT&T Services

High-speed data connectivity via AT&T's 3G mobile broadband data network: The dual-band 850/1900 MHz 3G network provides up to 3.6/7.2 Mbps of download speed, making it possible to enjoy a variety of feature-rich wireless multimedia services, and it gives you the advantage of offering simultaneous voice and data services.

Additionally, this phone is also compatible with 2100 MHz 3G networks found in international territories. (For use outside the United States, an AT&T international data plan is recommended.) When traveling outside the U.S., you can enjoy wireless voice coverage in more than 215 countries and wireless data coverage in more than 185 countries--as well as access ultra-fast 3G mobile broadband services in more than 100 countries.

In areas where the 3G network is not available, you'll continue to receive service on the AT&T EDGE network, which offers availability in more than 13,000 US cities and along some 40,000 miles of major highways. Providing average data speeds between 75-135Kbps, it's fast enough to support a wide range of advanced data services, including full picture and video messaging, high-speed color Internet access, and e-mail on the go.

The full-featured, premium AT&T Navigator GPS navigation application includes audible turn-by-turn directions, real-time traffic updates and re-routing options, and 3D moving maps (additional charges applicable). AT&T Navigator offers several other features to make your commute more enjoyable and reliable, including mobile access to Yellowpages.com. Additionally, AT&T Navigator is the only mobile phone-based GPS service that provides integrated speech recognition for address entry and points of interest search.

AT&T Mobile Music enables you to buy tracks while on the go, access the Napster and eMusic subscription music services, stream music video, discover what's playing with Music ID song-recognition software, and find out what's hot with The Buzz music news portal.

AT&T's Video Share service enables you to send a live, one-way video stream to another compatible phone during a standard voice call. The service also allows you to switch the direction of the video stream during the same phone call. (Customers must be in an area served by the company's 3G network and have a Video Share-enabled phone.) While using Video Share with family and friends is a fun way to communicate, it's also very useful for business. For example, a majority of users in the architecture, engineering and construction industries rated the ability to share live video through Video Share highly, according to research commissioned by AT&T. Video Share lets you see progress on a job site or review the day's work without having to drive from an office or other site to do so.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Cell Reception! Most important factor in a phone. February 13, 2011
By Mary S.
I've struggled with how to review this phone. I've decided to give it 4 stars as a phone, its intended purpose, to receive and send phone calls, it's reception is phenomenal. Quite simply, the best reception I've ever had. I have reception in places that nobody has reception in. I've heard the same from many other Blackberry users. BB has the best cell phone reception, period, and the race isn't even close.

Time for my complaints:

1. Very few instructions on a single sheet, no booklet, and no idea where to go to find out how to set this phone up. The abbreviated setup instructions do not even tell you how to load the battery. I had to Google it. If you get one of these phones, go to the Blackberry website and they have videos for how to do everything on this phone. I question why there wasn't any supporting paperwork in the box telling me to go there. They made all of those nice videos, but nobody would know they were there on the Blackberry website.

2. The battery cover on the back is a nightmare to pry off and you will have to pry it off just to put the battery in place. The directions on the BB website show using your thumb in the middle and that just won't work. The battery cover on the white phone is a flexible plastic. Pressing in the center just collapses the cover into an unseen cavity within the phone. Instead, you will have to use a tool, like a nail file, and take your time prying it from the top edges, not the middle, and be careful not to slip and scratch your camera lens.

3. As far as functioning as a smartphone, I have to say that I hate the touchscreen. Thank goodness it also has the little trackpad at the bottom or I'd never be able to maneuver around the screens on this phone. The touchscreen is not sensitive enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Phone July 22, 2011
By CWaz
Personally I have found this phone to meet and exceed my needs out of a phone and a mobile media device. I couldn't believe that this phone only cost me a penny. I will defiantly tell all my friends about amazon wireless. Back to the phone itself shall we? I thought at first that the keyboard was awkward at first but after having the phone for a full day, I got use to the key board. The cell reception is crystal clear on both sides of any phone conversations. I love the new web browser, its an actual browser this time. The touch screen works great regardless if the full key board is slid out or not. Also you can actually watch Youtube vidoes without them rebuffing every 2 minutes. When I got the phone there were no cosmetic deformities like what the review before this one stated, her phone must be a solo incident. The only cons would be maybe the size of the screen and not a ton of apps like Android has. In my humble Blackberry user's opinion, Blackberry would be in between Android and Apple iPhone when it comes to apps. As said before Android has a ton of apps while Apple iPhone does not. However BlackBerry will allow you to use third party apps. I had a Blackberry Curve 9330 before but since having the Torch I will never go back to a Curve or a Bold nor would I go back to Android. Yes I was a Android user once, what can I say? I was confused. lol

This link helped me make my decision on buying the Blackerry Torch 9800, so enjoy. Thank you crackberry crew.

1.0 out of 5 stars It needs a better locking mechanism August 4, 2011
The unit would really be worth while if only Blackberry removed the proximity to magnet property. When you slide this unit into a holster with a magnet it turns itself off (nice) but as it continues into the holster it turns itself back on and then the trouble starts. While continuing to slide into the holster the trackball will roll onto an application. Sometimes that is the only problem and no damage. But on occasion the trackball is depressed by the holster and activates the application. It depends on the application on how upset you get. Couldn't get out of my contract without costing more than I think is necessary so my solution was to put a password on the unit. The unit needs permission to delete or activate applications now. Also should you put this unit in your shirt pocket or purse without pressing the oversensitive lock button on the top, the trackball will again cause you grief. I call the button oversensitive because as you reach into your pocket and you should barely touch the lock button on top you will no doubt start the sequence with the trackball as you remove it. Everything else about the unit is fine. It even talks well.
