I'm back.... couldn't hang with the Torch
 
I had high hopes for the Torch and have had it since day one. At the same time, I kept my Bold 9700 active as a second line. With each passing day, as the newness wore off on the Torch, I came to realize that the Bold 9700 is just sleeker, faster, and better suited for my needs. All the clunky slider/touchscreen/OS 6 does is give me more steps and make it more cumbersome to check my emails, and make and recieve calls, which is really I need.

If any of you are looking to upgrade to the Torch, let me just tell you that I consider it a "downgrade."

I would agree for the usability, pure-productivity standpoint. However, when I did have the Torch (back to the 9700 as well), it was kind of fun to have a BB with a large display. That being said, when the 9800 is available for T-Mobile, I will be getting one.

The large display became useless to me. The onscreen keyboard covered more than half of it when I had it sideways. Couldn't type on the slideout keypad when it was sideways. When in a normal vertical position, the onscreen keypad takes up all the space that was gained by having a bigger screen.

I HATE touch screens! I would almost break my phone if I had a touch screen! Touchscreen is for girls! Period.

Chill Matrix. That's a suggestion..

I switched to the 9700 after having to swap out my 9800 TWICE in less than 30 days.
