why are you ppl talking about a iphone, this is a tmobile based websited and a blackberry thread we are in, HELLO, lets get back on topic ppl
As blacksilva said, we were merely comparing the iPhone and the 9700, so that was on topic.
would you recommend someone selling their Cliq to get the Blackberry 9700? I have heard it has a hard time picking up a signal, is that true?
I WAS having problems with reception, but now I am proud to say it was the BlackBerry. I swapped my old 9700 for a new one and its getting great reception, though the Cliq still had better reception (that might just be my area).
As for selling your Cliq for the 9700, if email and dependence on a reliable device important to you, get the Cliq. BlackBerry's are known for there powerful email capabilities, and the 9700 is no exception. The Cliq on the other hand is power of a "fun" device, if I may say. The Cliq has a better camera as well (5MP) and also takes pretty nice pictures when in the right lighting conditions (same goes for the 9700, but the Cliq picture quality is a bit better IMO). If you're looking for a nice fun device the Cliq does just that. If you are more going to be using the handset for business purposes, or for email, the BlackBerry 9700 will be a great choice.
Both handsets have an appealing look. But no doubt about it, the BlackBerry Bold 9700 is light-years ahead of Motorola in regards of design & look, IMO.
Both handsets have pretty good call quality, but battery life on the 9700 is definitely better than the Cliq. Cliq lasted me around half a day on moderate usage. While on the other hand the Bold 9700 lasts me around 2 days on moderate usage.
