I am going to buy this Storm. I checked with the shop, they said can not write Mandarin. I need mandarin. they told me I must buy from outside country.

Is that anyone using this phone with mandarin capability?

vodafone empolyee, 08 Jan 2009hello kittykat yes you can use the blackberry in usa on att but ... more@@ wow, that good,so even the phone is unlock i still can use blackberry email service~

  • jerell

on a scale for from 1 to 10 i give the phone (from personal experience) an 8 and i say 8 instead of 10 because of loading issues that should have been resolved before blackberry put the phone out for sale. Sometimes you cant even answer the phone because of this issue but other than that the phone is FREAKIN AWSOME.

Hi All,

I have Sony Ericsson P1i and I’m using the Blackberry service here in KSA through Al Jawal network & Mobily network…. This service cost me around 200 SAR per month :( which is costly…

If I bought Blackberry device do I still have to pay for the service or it available in the device?

Plz. Help me with your answer :)

Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970Thanks for the email response.

I might be interested and admit I am surprised at the cost. Not bad! Less than $ 350 for one 9500 is a good price.

Are these locked to a carrier or unlocked and are they new or refurbished? Packaged or opened?

Also, where would they be mailed from? I live in the US and was wondering about the delivery cost for one 9500?

this is a brilliant phone just need to ensure you charge it often because as with all pda it soon gets through its battery i cant understand why certain people are slating it i hope vodafone are working on version 2 as i would definitely have one again

one thing bad about blackberry phones are the speakers. the speakers has 32 channels, and it sounds like sh****t!!!

I think now blackberry co is tailor making their devices which fits customer's preference. This phone is the bomb.

Seems some goose forgot about a cheap Teflon edge to stop the dust and worst of all the screen on my piece of junk moves laterally. The accelerometer or whatever they call it also has a mind of its own. God try but not good enough BB

Great phone, does everything but wash my socks, on a downside,because of all the functions it takes ages to re-load if you have to remove the battery. And they don't tell you where to put the micro flash card, try taking the back off and see where it should go. Given this slight problem its a brlliant phone. Talk time not to long especially for a wind bag like me, will just get a spare battery.
