    So a few days ago I bought a cellphone off of this guy on the internet. Turns out it was stollen. So I took the chance and bought a cell phone again off the internet (kijiji) This time I made sure to get the IME # from the seller first. Turns out the phone is not stollen.
    I ended up getting the bb bold 9700. And I absoulty love it.

    To be honest at first I was kinda disapointed with it. It seemed kinda glitchy and not to good. Then I did the OS 6 update and WOOOW!!! What a difference. It was like a whole new phone. I am so impressed with this phone. The phone quality is just amazing 10/10. It was better than talking on the house phone.

    BBM...... is just amazing now. So cool and so many options it is great. It so nice comunicating on BBM. Just makes texting that much more fun. You can play games on there with other BBM users. 10/10

    The trackpad.... I just fell in love with that right away. See, I have big fingers and with the touch screen on my Android it was so hard clicking on certain things. I would always be clicking the wrong thing. Its so frustrating. With this its like using a mouse accept better. And now my screen is not always gross looking from my fingers. I love this feature. Have not found anything I hate about it. 10/10

    BB maps..... This i must admit I dont like to much. Its got really cool features. Its really accurate. I just dont like the look of it. I do like how it shows how fast I am going and it was dead on. It hard to zoom in and frustrating. Maybe I just need to get used of it a bit more and learn all of the options. But for now I give it 5/10

    BB bridge.... I really like this. I love how u can look at your email and type emails on your pb. I like how u can BBM on your PB. Really cool on a bigger screen. I dont like how i cant send pics from my pb to my phone though. or music. Kinda sucks. Maybe i just dont know how too????? I give this 8/10 cuz it can use a few more features.

    BB Playbook..... I love everything about this device. Although it can use more apps. That is the only problem. other than that great picture quality. Amazing graphics. Apps to Go is awesome... can make a resume or what ever i want. Games are really fun and cool to play. I like how u can hook it up to big screen tv and watch videos from the internet. Also nice for watching movies and listening to music. .. 10/10

    I ended up buying my gf the Curve 9300, she just fell in love with it after I did the OS6 update for it. I am gonna get her the new Bold 9900 or the torch 9810.

    I dont know how BB has a bad name right now. I have barely any complaints about there products. I have owned Androids....iPhones...and in MY OPINION I find BB to be the best. They are so addicting. Anyways sorry for the long message but I thought I would give my opinion about BB devices I own. Thanks for reading.

    Good question about the photo syncing between phone and tab, I too haven't figured that part out yet. I must admit I haven't had a need yet, though. I have to say that is one thing I do like behind the whole iCloud concept. Maybe one day? We could only hope, huh? Glad you are enjoying your new gadget.

    Thank you. Do u have the 9900? If so what's the difference between OS7 compared to OS6? And what other cool features does it have. I'm having a hard time deciding what to get myself too. When I upgrade my Bold 9700 I don't know which one I will pick either.

    Sync BB photos to DM and sync PB photos to same folder in DM, simple. (I assume )

    One good thing about OS 7 is that you can turn those annoying panels off. When I had my 9930, that was one of the first things that I did. I feel like those are a huge turn off of OS 6. I couldn't stand using them on my Torch.

    What panels are you talking about?

    There are 5 panels that you can view from the homescreen by swiping: All, Favorites, Media, Downloads, Frequent. With OS7 you have the capability to turn manage the panels (turn them individually off or on). That is not an option in OS6. I am not a big fan of the panels, so I only keep the "All" panel on.
