Great buy, all i expected in a smart phone.

It also kept sticking on the browser icon and would freeze the whole phone until i pressed the off button, so had to take it to get checked.

The torch is beautiful and the red is even more outstanding - not likely to get confused in a sea of black. The screen is very sensitive and it is important to keep locking it so as not to accidentally activate a phone call or switch apps. It makes reading emails and viewing spreadsheets a breeze. The only downside is the limited ringtones :)

First off - although this phone is 'unlocked', unless you are a pretty sophsticated user, you may be best off just going with ATT. This is an unlocked AT&T phone and all the settings are configured for this carrier. In order to get it to work with another service provider you will need to figure out how to change your settings (not as intuitive as other phones, and the user documentation doesn't match the phone). You will also need to download and install new 'service books' that match the provider you wish to use - which you will have to find online somewhere as most providers don't have service books for a device they don't support.

OK - supposing you got past that headache, now you are ready to use your phone. This is the pleasant part. The phone feels nice, it's certainly attractive, the screen is large and lovely and the keyboard is excellent. The battery life is on par with other smartphones I've used (unimpressive, but hey it's a mini-computer doing stuff in the background all the time). Call quality is good as is reception. The device synched up to my motorola headset and my car bluetooth without a hiccup.

1 week later the phone is dead. Went to sleep with a full battery and woke up to a phone that wouldn't boot with a red x on the screen. No amount of hard resetting or removing the battery and sim card will get it to respond. According to the blackberry support forums I'm supposed to re-install the OS, but the phone will not respond enough for me to do so. The only thing I haven't done thus far is try a new battery, and at this point I'm so frustrated (by first having to figure out its unintuitive data settings and now this) that I think I might get more satisfaction from watching it drop from my 10th floor balcony.

I'm afraid the negative aspects of owning this phone have far outweighed the relatively positive user experience I had for the brief time that it was working.

It came as advertised, it is very user friendly. However, this is based on very limited testing on my behalf as the phone was purchased as a gift. I was concerned when purchasing if the red color would have had a plastic look but it has a very rich red color, very professional in appearance. I am pleased with my purchase.

Blackberries may no longer be the top 'smart phones' because they don't do everything well but for what I consider their 'core' features - email and phone, in that order - they are still up there at the top. And the Torch is the current top Blackberry at the time I'm writing this. As a 'business phone', it combines the best features of 'traditional' blackberries with the best a highly graphical, 'touch' interface can provide. For a 'phone and entertainment' device, there may be better alternatives.

My review is not going to discuss the Torch long list of features and capabilities. They are all listed on Amazon's product page and in 100 different sites, including RIM's own. I will only talk about why I currently prefer the Torch vs. anything else as a 'business' phone even now when my employer would allow me to use other brands if I wanted to.

THE TORCH ADVANTAGE

- Physical keyboard - The most visible Torch feature is the sliding keyboard. This allows for a larger display when compared to, let's say, the Bold, without resulting into a larger phone. The illuminated keyboard seems to be the exact same size of a Bold's, only it becomes available when needed. This is not the only phone with a sliding keyboard but this is probably the best engineered one. Sliding the keyboard in and out is quick, near-effortless and it quickly becomes second nature.
- Touch screen - Not the first Blackberry with the feature but this seems to be the best on a BB so far. Yes, it's not as good as iPhone's but, for what I'm using it, it's just right. There is an on-screen keyboard which adapts itself to portrait/landscape but that's the least advantage the touch screen offers. The new Blackberry OS allows me to 'touch' just about anything on the screen and trigger... something.

It came with a battery that did not work so I had to purchase a new battery immediately to turn on the phone to see how it operated. It also kept sticking on the browser icon and would freeze the whole phone until i pressed the off button, so had to take it to get checked. It worked for a while perfectly then with increasing lag and this is with basic usage of BB messages and phone and occasional web search and now 4 months after purchase it has died. Battery pull and charging for 5 hours did not get the phone to turn on. I am now BB-less as I write this. I am doubtful that this phone was new as advertised, and if it were then it came from a bad batch.

The battery sent does not work. This is very poor since I don't live in the us. Not worth the risk, don't buy. Only giving one star cause I have to.

Funciono perfecto aca en Colombia. Muy dispositivo para quienes les gusta el BBM, tiene una excelente resolucion de pantalla, creo q es una de las cosas que mejor me parecio. La pantalla tactil es bastante sensitiva.
En términos generales es un buen aparato.
