04/08/2010, Always wanted to pick up the BlackBerry Bold 9000, but never got around doing so due to the procrastination bug? AT&T has just the thing for you – the Bold 9000 which will be made available for free, although you will need to sign up for a 2-year contract. This is not a new unit though since it will be refurbished, but heck, at least you save on the $199 […]
04/07/2010, Pictures of what are supposedly the housing for the BlackBerry Bold 9650 have surfaced, which hopefully is a good indication that the phone will be officially announced sooner rather than later. Of course, this won’t be the first indication of the BlackBerry Bold 9650 that we’ve seen before, but it does give us a rough idea of what the phone will eventually look like. Hopefully more pictures of this upcoming […]
04/07/2010, The folks over at Boy Genius have managed to grab hold of an internal Verizon Wireless document that hints at new devices that are launching (really) soon. There isn’t any mention of what these devices might be, but what do you think could be possible? The HTC Inredible, BlackBerry Bold 9650, or even an iPhone?
04/01/2010, Forget about the leak – the BlackBerry Bold 9700 OS 220.127.116.116 is now official, so folks who were willing to wait for just a few days can be “rewarded” with the real deal, not to say the leaked version was gimped in any way. Still, it is prudent to always make a backup copy of all your data before you go ahead with any firmware updates since you can’t tell […]
04/01/2010, Looks like folks who are looking for a BlackBerry Bold will be able to pick one up from Verizon Wireless later this May, as shown by an internal website where Bank of America employees can order new handsets listed the device as such. There is still no word on its model number though, although there is the possibility of it being called the 9750 to keep up with RIM’s naming […]
04/01/2010, Folks who are bored of BlackBerry devices being black might have another alternative soon, instead of going to Colorware of course. The Thai version of RIM’s site has put up a picture of a white colored Bold 9700. Is customization important to you, and would a white colored BlackBerry Bold 9700 pique your interest? While the white version doesn’t look as serious as the default black, that doesn’t mean the […]
03/29/2010, Feeling adventurous? Then you might want to download the Bold 9700 OS 18.104.22.1686 which has leaked out, which basically means this is not an official version, so update your precious BlackBerry Bold 9700 with care (and a proper backup beforehand) if you want to make sure that your data can be called upon if anything goes awry. For those who prefer to tread on the safe side, then we would […]
03/17/2010, Vodafone subscribers who are running the BlackBerry Bold 9700 will be happy to hear that the carrier has officially released the 22.214.171.1245 firmware for the 9700, and it’s currently available for download. As usual, do remember to back up your data and settings before attempting to update the firmware on your device. Sure, it’s an official firmware, but things can go wrong too, right?
03/13/2010, Just a slightly a week after we managed to get hold of some pictures of a BlackBerry slider phone, more pictures of said device have surfaced. In the latest batch of leaked pictures, you’ll be able to see the side profile of the phone, compared with a BlackBerry Curve 8900. It seems that this device is probably not the Storm 3, but possibly another version of the BlackBerry Bold, especially […]
03/04/2010, The Winter Olympics might be over, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have fond memories of this recent sporting event. FutureShop has cobbled a customized Team Canada BlackBerry Bold 9700, which pays homage to the fact that RIM offered members of the gold medal winning Canadian Mens Hockey Team with the Bold 9700 as seen here, alongside a custom paint job and name on the back. Staff at FutureShop can […]
02/09/2010, Looks like the OS 126.96.36.1994 for the BlackBerry Bold 9000 has been officially released, though it’s not by AT&T, rather by another carrier – Zain Kuwait. If you’re really desperate for this update for your BlackBerry Bold 9000, you can pick it up at the official site, though you’ll want to remember to backup all your files and settings before attempting this. Unfortunately there isn’t any official listing of the […]
01/21/2010, How would you like a BlackBerry Bold that sports a touchscreen? There isn’t such a device on the market yet, but it seems that RIM is considering something along those lines. Leaked pictures of a prototype BlackBerry have surfaced, showing a Bold-looking device that has a touchscreen. Apparently this design has been ditched in favor of something nicer, and we certainly wouldn’t mind nicer stuff. When do you think RIM […]
12/23/2009, Because the Blackberry Bold 9700 has been called the “best Blackberry ever” by some, the excitement and expectations around this phone is high. It is true that the bold 9700 represents the apogee of successive refinements that Research In Motion (RIM) has done on its phones since the release of the original Bold. The Blackberry 9700 inherits from improvements made to the Blackberry Curve 8900 and the Blackberry Tour, among […]
12/04/2009, Phew, UMA is back and it is stable! I’ve had UMA issues with the T-Mobile Blackberry Bold 9700 since I got it a few weeks ago, and I finally found what was happening (btw, the T-mo BB 8900 has UMA working on the same network). I’m posting this because other people seem to have problems connecting via UMA as well. Note that while I have solved my particular UMA connectivity […]
