Question Just Purchased the BB 9800

Please Login to Remove!

Greetings Everyone,

I just recently purchased the BB Torch 9800 i upgraded from an LG Ally. And I must say i am really impressed with the phone overall. I am writing this thread because I have still got around to any cell phone accessories. So with that being said i would like to ask for a few tips on Blackberry accessories.
This is my first blackberry and like i said i am in love with it thus far.

Ok so here goes.

First what kind of case do you guys recommend will best be suited for this phone?

How is battery life will i need an extended battery? Are there any extended batteries?

Has anyone used a Skinomi screen protector? Any feedback? the installation process is a bit more complex from other screen protectors i have used before but i have read good reviews on it.

Any other accessories that are a must have?

Any tips or advice will be greatly appreciated and thank you for your time.

Welcome to BBF and the 9800! You made a good choice.

Moved to the 9800 section.

Please read through this section and use the SEARCH feature for most of your questions.

As for battery life, it really depends on how you use it. Since you didn't give any details, I can only guess. As with any smartphone, the more use, the less battery life you get. The more apps running in the background, the less battery life. This from our FAQ might help: Maximum Battery Life - BlackBerryFAQ

i recommend a bluetooth earpiece naturally.
and as for an extended battery...there are but non from "reputable" or "respected" manufactures so I personally would avoid them. you can find some on Amaz0n.c0m

Me too and I am currently looking for a case. Extended batteries are usually made by cheap chinese companies, which you might get lucky and get something good. You can always buy a spare just to keep in your car or something, thats what Im doing.
