Default Which is the best BB Bold?

Please Login to Remove!

Recently, more and more issues found. I don't know what is the difference between Bold from different vendors, I think that Rogers seems to be the most stable one. Is that right?

There really isn't any difference in the base hardware.

The only difference I have noticed is that ATT devices do not have the 3G or 2G option, which the Rogers device does, and upgrading or changing the OS on the ATT device does not affect that option.

I haven't heard of the "more and more issues found".

Obviously mine is the BEST!

As someone said, no difference between vendors. Different versions of the same OS are installed but you can install the release you want, just following the procedure listed in this forum.

Here in italy we have some good luck with Wind carrier (Wind) since their devices are FULL NO BRAND & NO LOCK they work with all the SIM (i.e. carriers all over the workld) (Wind - Privati - BlackBerry 9000 Bold). No signs on the external case, no boot image, no proprietary apps installed, no features locked (Wind - Privati - BlackBerry: Cos'). They only put the original black BB Box inside a custom orange-with-logo box. Nothing more...and that's good stuff

plus with 12xxx8364;/month (~15US$) you get unlimited data plan for blackberry BIS service that is quite cheap.

Ciao,
Alex

mine is Vodafone branded, but unlocked as well.

same retail price, xxx8364; 3,00/week for BIS, V.A.T. included, also on prepaid.
AFAIK, both Wind's 3G coverage and customer care are not as good as Vodafone's.

German Bolds have a QWERTZ keyboard, not QWERTY.

Yep! I Have a 8310 from Vodafone Germany and it has QWERTZ. Not so much crazy for me switching between the two.

@Pipppetto:
I feel exatly the opposite. I have sim from all carriers (prepaid and contracts). My company gave me a Vodafone ITA cellphone and even with Business Care i feel so bad. Coverage also was the best at Omnitel days now is falling down. The guys at Wind are doing well both on net quality (3G HSDPA & EDGE) and customer care. Obviously this is my own personal opinion

Ciao!
