I went for something different and am I glad I did!, 7 Feb 2010

This review is from: BlackBerry 9700 Bold Sim Free Mobile Phone - Black (Wireless Phone Accessory)
I've just got the 9700, it was a bit of an odd choice for me,
i'd usually be looking for the latest gimmicks and gadgets but having realised I usually get fed up playing with the phone after the first few hours and getting annoyed with battery life, call quality, e-mail, reliability etc, I went for something different and am I glad I did!
The 9700 does exactly what I want and what it's supposed to do it does to prefection! The battery is fantastic, so easy and quick to type on, call quality is superb and get's a fantasic 3G signal where all my other phones have failed miserably,.
I feel I should have picked a Blackberry earlier, I'm not really sold on big, touch screen devices, I certainly can't type anywhere near as fast on a touch screen as this Blackberry, clicking on links etc is so much easier with the trackpad.
I'd also highly recommend one of these which compliments the 9700 perfectly.
