Default Verizon Blackberry Torch

Please Login to Remove!

On Verizon's website I noticed they came out with the Torch(all touch, forgot the model number) but it is just all touch.


I dont know if this is the place for this, but I upgrade soon and I was wondering what would suit me better. An iPhone, or the new BlackBerry..

As far as apps, I have a droid now and I have a bunch of apps that I dont find myself using. I text a lot, use a lot of email, facebook,twitter, and kakaotalk. I dont play games much on my phone at all.


I have always wanted iPhone, but recently im loving these new blackberry models...

I have and use both devices - the 9850 Torch (on Sprint, though, not Verizon) and the iPhone 4.

Not sure what kakaotalk is, but I do not see it in BlackBerry App World.

As for typing in the device, I have found both holding and typing on the BlackBerry to be easier.

Fran33s, I have the 9850 Verizon Torch, it's pretty nice, I think.
You will not have the apps as on the Droid or iPhone, but... it's a great device, the email is rock solid. The browser is nice on this device, better than ever.

Please, there is no need to post again. I believe we answered your question about those apps (kakotalk) in your thread here: Application Question!.

I depends. The New iPhone is suppose to launch on Oct 15th but its not 4G. It has a better camera, faster processor and new OS. Other than that it similar to the iphone 4. The New BB Torch 9850 is nice but also is not 4G
and doesnt have a hotspot option. Battery life isnt as good as other BB's but still much better than iphone or android.The New BB has a super fast processor compared to the BB they replaced. If the andorid phone your using doesnt have 4g LTE then you wont miss the speed. If you ever use a Verizon 4G LTE phone you wont be able to go back to a non-4g phone. Its blazing fast. 10X faster than 3G.
