Summary: not work stays locked functions, and I have to reboot 4 or 5 times a day, because it is rebuilt, or bad luck, however I do not recommend it, I'll have to buy another, to another provider because it takes much in delivery.
"Good start. Pathetic a month later!!! DO NOT BUY!!!"

Pros: Great style and interface. Easy sync with email. Easy sync with contacts and calendar via Blackberry Desktop Manager. Many user adjustable settings. Phone settings and data can be (and most definitely should be)backed up effortlessly.
Cons: Phone Freezes. Phone self-initiates a complete data wipe. Screen scratches easily. Virtual keyboard almost impossible to use in Portrait mode. Battery will not charge beyond 60% (4 to 5 hours in STANDBY).
Pros: It looks nice on the outside and that is where the positive aspects end.
Cons: The virtual keyboard is not responsive. The phone is incredibly slow. I've had to reload the software several times due to crashes. Even when it works, it might take 5-10 seconds for the phone to response to commands or your touch.
Pros: IPhone or Droid "like". If you are a loyal Blackberry customer....you were excited about this phone being released.
Cons: I have had 3 BRAND NEW phones in 3 months. The first two phones were replaced the FIRST DAY OUT OF THE BOX!!! The third phone completely shut down after 88 days. Wouldn't turn on. Verizon confirmed this was yet a third DEFECTIVE phone.
Summary: Having been a loyal blackberry customer for many years, I was so excited to hear that they were coming out with a newer, updated, almost I-phone like touchscreen. I pre-ordered it 2 weeks before it even came out! I guess that was my first mistake...I probably should have waited to see what people said after it was out for a while. Here is my horrific experience with this phone: My preordered phone came to my home on the opening day date! Yay!
Excerpt: I purchased the blackberry torch because I have always had blackberry cell phones. I have had nothing but trouble with this phone. I have previously had three other blackberry cell phones and those were great. This one really has a lot of problems with it. I have had to get three replacement phones and still there are still issues with it. For some reason i have the same problems with it. The BlackBerry cell phone with just shut off and turn back on when it wants to.
