Switch from Bold 9700 to Torch 9800?

Hi everybody.

 

I thing about to switch from my Bold 9700 to Torch 9800. Is there anybody here who made this switch before? Would you recomend it or would you better give me an advice to stay with the Bold 9700?

 

I am an average user on BES, use the BBmessenger, Facebook, browsing, no music.

 

Thanks for you replies and advices!

 

Robert

I did the 9700 to 9800 switch, biggest mistake was using some older apps on it that were not compatable.

 

The social feeds app works nice, I had social scope but that app was eating up battery life. It is now ready for OS 6 but now I am used to social feeds and SS does not display enough data for me now.

 

I would try your apps one by one if you have any and try them for a bit in case one gives an issue.

 

Also make sure you are on OS 246, it is very solid for me. 141 was not so good that shipped with earlier devices.

 

I am enjoying the Torch a lot.

 

Let us know how you progress.

Thanks for the reply. All my apps will run on the Torch. What about the battery? Which difference have you got compared to the Bold 9700?

I am a heavy user most of the time. I can get through the whole day with heavy use. I have been able to get through a whole weekend with light use. Depends on how much you use it.
