    do blackberry bold 9650 can be used in malaysia ? do our teleco support it ?

    • KeeMan, June 25, 2010 @ 10:49 pm Reply

      These new models have not been officially introduced by our telcos. But if you bought the unlocked version you should be able to use it.

    so, what says u? which one is better, bold 9700 or bold 9650? and why do i found all the unlocked version of 9650 are sold pretty cheaper than bold 9700? can u explain more on this? so i can presumed that those bold 9650 that been sold here in malaysia is comes with the blackberry OS 6.0, correct? pls reply me. i need to know more about this. thank you in advance. ^_^

      Hi Ash,

      I personally think both are equally good but still prefer 9650 due to its larger memory (double than 9700). I’m not sure why the unclocked version are sold cheaper than 9700. But for your info, Blackberry Bold 9650 and 9700 will both get Blackberry OS 6.0 update.

    hi. thanks for the reply. but recently, i came across to some forum site saying that bold 9650 might have some prob to malaysian telco’s network since it has some kinda thing called CDMA (whatever it might be and sorry, im not a bb expert. ^_^ ) and perhaps, they said that bold 9650 are not really suitable with the malaysian telco’s. have u heard about this before?

    • KeeMan, August 9, 2010 @ 9:23 pm Reply

      Yeah, 9650 is dual CDMA as opposed to tri-band 3G and quad-band GSM on 9700. If you’re planning to use bold 9650 on Malaysian telcos, it still can run smoothly on quad-band GSM since CDMA allows this. The same case with the CDMA version of iPhone 4.

    ohh, so its some sort of myth there. actually i would like to get a bb for myself but still there are plenty of rumours saying about malaysia banning bb due to the safety reason as already implemented in the saudi. thus, what says u about this issue?

    • KeeMan, August 9, 2010 @ 11:14 pm Reply

      Haha…it’s a non-issue to me. Malaysian top ministers are using BB too. I bet RIM, the company behind BB will issue a press release soon about their servers which somehow monitor all BB users’ data usage. They can’t afford to lose their business because of it.

    is the bb 9650 sold in south malaysia i’m johorian pls reply asap cause i want to buy a bb or can you recommend me a 512mb bb which is better and is in stores now tq

    • KeeMan, November 5, 2010 @ 12:07 pm Reply

      I’m not sure if it’s available in Johore. Maybe you can survey it out.

  • C|imaX, November 5, 2010 @ 12:36 am Reply

    Is our telco planning to bring in the Blackberry Pearl 3G 9100 anytime soon??? or should i go for the more expensive choice? Iphone 4?

    • KeeMan, November 5, 2010 @ 11:56 am Reply

      I don’t think it would be that soon but it will enter the market maybe next year.
