Happy With Purchase

Got this for my wife and its been over 6 months its in use. No complaints till now.

BB OS is awesome.

Speaking of hardware, keypad is smooth & touch screen is awesome.

Battery lasts enough for a day use with all the emails, facebook, whatsapp, BBM, & few other apps always up & running.
BBM hub works awesome.

Sometime busy symbol comes up and last for 20-30 secs. That's one -ve point I can think of right now.

Overall happy with purchase.

And flipkart service is as usual great !!! :)

Five Stars

This is my second BB phone within a year. (First one is still working without any problem)
I bought this in an offer of Rs. 4499.
Previously i bought BB 9320 by Sept 2016. From that i become a crazy fan of BB mobiles esp. qwerty key board mobiles.

Pros:
1. Its matchless features (only felt by BB users)
2. Battery back up, one full charge lasts for 3 days
3. Inbuilt memory 8 GB
4. Has Compass, BB maps, Facebook, Twitter...
5. Other apps will also installed through BBM
6. Touch and qwerty key...

Awesome Phone

The phone with touchscreen and OS 7 is perfect. Best is, full Querty functionality makes Touchscreen fully optional.

Once you are hooked onto a Blackberry, no phone excites you. And BB 9790 is a perfect upgrade if you used any other BB phone earlier.

A Worth Buy.. Been 15 days since I bought it and I just LOVE IT

Should you buy a BlackBerry.... this one is good.

Bought this phone for husband a year back. I am not at all a BB fan but since he is, I had to buy this. So here is the list:
Pros:
good for BB fans.
very light weight... even with the battery.
Since it is touch and type, battery usage is good. Not too good like Nokia (well you cannot expect it with a smartphone :P ) but better than full touch screen.
Cons:
all the cons of having a BB :P
plus, I have seen the touch not responding a couple of times.
Once the phone automatically went into limbo ...

Decent phone..but is it really worth the price???

I have been using a blackbery for the past 1 and a half years, I started with a 9700 bold 2 and now I moved on to 9790. I dint buy this from flipkart but wanted to share my opinion with everyone. One line-"NOT WORTH THE PRICE" I say this simply because for the features it offers, it is overpriced a great deal. It is only because I need to be in constant touch with my office and personal mail, do i go for a blackberry or else for the price I really think youl get superbly better phones for thi...

Beautiful PERFORMANCE from SAMSUNG/NOKIA etc.

Before purchasing bb 9790, I went thru a whole range of technical reviews - flipkart- the mobile indian, uk /us based news, crackberry , cell stores and what not. I was too wary to choose a blackberry since I never used one. The trap of android and apps was huge, and samsung is roaring in its market.

Who would like and is RECOMMENDED MUST to choose BB:

THE BEST Connectivity, Coverage provided,
Very good speeds on wifi and net browsing,
super fluid TOUCH,
The TOUCH SCREEN is BROAD unlike ...

1st time not happy with the product

This is the 1st time I was not so happy with the product delivered by flipkart. I was very happy when I saw BB Bold 9790 was available. I have ordered and paid the amount on 25th April and delivery date was given 5th May. But it was delivered on 30th April.

After I have ordered the product was not in stock but whenever I click on the link to view the product it was showing with last offered price, which was less. I was surprised and called the customer care and it was told to me that its be...

AWESOME

My first review in flipkart. This items marks my purchase of above 1.5L from this site in the last 1 year.
I am a big BB fan and i go by BB all time though i got nexus 4 and tried all fancy mobiles out in market.
i got Q10 from USA recently and happy with many features but pissed of with no BIS service. This is crime by BB. How could they compromise their core strength of push mail and i got annoyed with little delay in mail receipt. I decided to keep it aside(future updates of BB 10 OS co...
