T-Mobile Services

  • High-speed data connectivity via T-Mobile's 3G network: In addition to its quad-band GSM connectivity, this phone is also compatible with T-Mobile's UMTS/HSDPA 3G network, which operates on the 1700/2100 MHz AWS spectrum. This phone is designed to automatically connect to the best available network (3G or GSM/GPRS/EDGE) to provide faster data speeds when accessing the Web or downloading content from the T-Mobile Web2go content portal. T-Mobile's 3G network now covers 170 million people in more than 235 cities nationwide and by the end of 2009 is planned to be available to approximately 200 million people across the U.S.

    In areas where the 3G network is not available, you'll continue to receive service on the via T-Mobile's EDGE network (which stands for "Enhanced Data Rates for Global Evolution").

I've been a long time AT&T costumer. I thought I could live without having an actual keyboard when it comes to texting, but after a week without my Sidekick Keyboard - I decided to ditch my Samsung Eternity for the Blackberry Bold 9700.

I was hesitant about purchasing this smart phone because I was never a fan of Blackberry's (RIMM). I had a BB during their initial boom in the early part of the new millennium. However, the poor browser, poor cell phone network, lackluster screen color, non desirable keyboard, awful battery life, whack OS, & lack of T9 predictive text just couldn't win me over.

After I realized that I couldn't text on a touch screen phone, unless it was the iPhone. I decided that I must have a cell phone device with an actual qwerty keyboard, if I expect to survive my text message & email addiction.

I picked up the Blackberry 9700 with my corporate discount and walked away with a nice high end phone at a very reasonable price. I have to say that I really enjoy the web browser on the new BB. You can zoom in & out with ease. I thought no browser could compare to the iPod Safari besides the Android G1, but after getting this device - I can safely say that this browser is also one of the best. Its right behind the safari and G1. Prior models were confined to small screens, thirty-five dollar internet only data plans, and no ability to zoom in or out. You were subjected to a small screen and reading small text till your eyes was squinting like grandmas.

NOTE: This review is long and detailed, especially relevant for heavy users of Google services. It is identical to the review I posted for the T-mobile black model, which I own, and which only differs by color from this model.

This is my second Blackberry, obtained from T-mobile at an upgrade discount (now possible through Amazon). My first Blackberry was the T-mobile Curve offering (my review on the 8320 may prove helpful to provide context for this review and for first time smart phone buyers). Last time I purchased a phone, I was just looking for a really high quality phone, and the 8320 certainly delivered. However, over time I gradually used more and more smart phone features until by 2009 I was totally hooked. While the 8320 was great as a phone, its limited memory and sluggish processor made it painful to use for certain apps - and impossible to use for more than a handful of apps.

So this time around my goal was to get a smart phone that made good sense for my current desired usage. Here were my requirements:

Keep costs down
Great phone (sound quality, speakerphone, quick dialing, coverage, vibrate options, international use, etc.)
Alternative reception if needed (WiFi UMA or femtocell)
Great e-mail (must handle Gmail well)
Sync contacts/calendar with Google and otherwise works seamlessly well with Google
Works seamlessly with other cloud apps I use heavily (Evernote, Dropbox, etc.)
Media player with 3.5mm jack
Camera of high enough quality to use in conjunction with Evernote OCR
Easy to use (configuration, speed of device, shortcuts, etc.

By Lectrice on November 7, 2010
I've had a BlackBerry Bold 9700 for a year now, and wouldn't trade it for an iPhone. It's very easy to use and keeps me in touch with multiple work and personal e-mail accounts; the camera takes excellent pictures. I use it as a little computer and occasionally as a Kindle substitute. I like the keys I can feel, and the square "mouse" is easier to use than the old round ones. The available apps include everything I need. Count me in as a happy customer.

Verified Purchase
This is the first and last time I'm buying a phone on Amazon, the experience was terrible. I ordered the phone and the first ordere was cancelled, the reason that amazon gave me was that my credit had not been approved to go ahead and contact t-mobile. When I contacted t-mobile, they said that my credit was excellent and that they hadn't denied credit or even requested a deposit or flexpay. I called amazon again and they practically told me it wasn't their problem. After speaking to a customer care manager (which was quite a feat) I was told to purchase the phone again and the same credit application from t-mobile was applied to it. Resulting in my phone arriving one week later than it sohuld.

By the time it arrived I expected it to be activated. Not only was it not activated, but t-mobile had no record of the rate plan and data plan that I wanted this phone on. So I had to go through that process all over again.
