    More battery life and better memory -- agreed.
    Clearer error messages, especially that silly teeny one on the white screen when the OS collapses.
    The ability to decide which vendor applications should always be hidden (or better yet, deleted) and which apps permanently show up (or shouldn't) on the Application Switcherwhether or not they're open .
    The ability to set a different default browser.
  • Diane
    Whohooo I won...Thanks blackberrycool!
  • murphythadog
    Hey I won something.
  • Moishe Kreisman
    Louder speakerphone
    OS/
    Capability of subtasks in Task Mgr
    Better file manager/viewer
  • Brian
    Better camera, better battery life, more app memory
  • Jeremy McCraw
    I love my mold, but there are things that make me crazy


    1. More RAM, More RAM, More RAM. If my oldschool Palm Tungsten T could run and store apps on memory cards, than my phone should be able to without a hitch
    2. Wi-Fi Voip support
    3. Better power management
    4. A Safari-like brower that supports Flash or a Flash workaround
    5. Better Camera phone, if you're not going to push up the Megapixels, at least punch up the colors, speed up the AF (I mean its next to useless) and get some better contrast.

    I would like to see apps run from the memory card, more base memory, no trackball, ability to store unused apps on media card, better camera, better battery life and quicker boot time.
  • ahmerz
    I like to see a better camera in Bold2
  • @ngel
    Battery life and a slimmer form!
  • Neel
    7.2mbps or faster data connection please, my network has supported this speed for over a year now and will upgrade soon!
    Also a browser that can deal with these speeds would be good.
  • Allendf
    -More RAM
    -Higher resolution camera
    -More internal memory for apps
    -Longer Batter Life
    -Accelerometer
    -Quicker connection to GPS satellites

    It's a great smartphone, but the above would be wonderful changes.

    I'd like to see a better camera of course. But more than anything I'd like the Memory manager to be improved, let's see something that reallocates the free memory right away rather than have to wait for a reset. :) anyone using Viigo will know what I mean. Lol!

    would love to win a case for my BOLD

    I would like to see a better OS system that improves memory and battery life.

    Better Battery life

    alternative to the track ball that get stuck after 6mos of use

    Not sure if this is a Bold issue or an AT&T issues but eliminate drop call when I get text or emails or no appearent reason at all

    I think all these could be improved on, but I would not have any other phone then my Blackberry Bold!!!

    Thanks Blackberry cool for this awesome opportunity to win this case for my bold!!!!

    Battery life is always a killer with 3G. Would be nice to see that in conjunction with the browsing experience. That and maybe more RIM-sponsored theme offerings as well.
  • Brant M
    It's time the Bold gets a camera update with Auto focus and at a bare minimum 3.2 mp.
  • David N
    Besides the browser, I think the battery life should be improved!
  • redzapper
    Better memory management and better battery life.
  • Tim
    I would like to see:

    -- improved battery life.
    -- improved browser support -- for non blackberry browsers.
    -- better integration with gmail for BIS users.
  • EA
    I'd like to see more RAM, better camera and of course UMA.
  • Chris

    Thanks.
  • Tashanna
    I would like to see an improvement in Battery Life and more internal memory
  • Hank
    I'd like to see:

    more application memory
    a bigger screen (480x360)
    replace trackball with D-pad/trackpad
  • Ariel
    I would like to see:

    1. Better battery life
    2. Better camera
    3. Better memory management and overall more RAM
  • James L
    More RAM definitely.
    More battery power.
    UMA
    Better camera
    Atomic trackball
  • AYKing
    Features I'd like to improve on my Bold:
    1. More RAM please! Really. I hate seeing "Application Memory Free Space: 1.3MB).
    2. Better camera (those 3.2MP Auto-Focus looks good for posting pics on twitter!)
    3. Trackpad (so no more taking apart the entire thing to clean the trackball every so often)
  • Pink2
    I would like to see:

    1. The application memory usage improved
    2. No trackball
    3. Being able to store unused themes and apps on media card for easier access
    4. Not so many sample files that you can't delete without 3rd party apps

    I absolutely love my Bold and would love to win this clip!!!
  • Jeremy
    Improvements on the Blackberry Bold.
    1. Run apps from the memory card!!!!
    2. Browser. I guess I have to wait until next summer.
    3. More base memory. 128Mb > 512Mb. The other units are coming with 256Mb and the Bold is supposed to be the flagship qwerty device, therefore it should have more than the other devices.
    4. The Trackpad looks neat, but I haven't had a chance to play with it yet...
    5. The Accelerometer would be a nice feature...
  • Erick Diaz
    I would like to win this case!!! :-) Thank you BlackBerry Cool!!!
  • Devan
    Personally I'd like to see the battery door improved which it looks like it has been. The camera can always be improved and it looks like they've done that too! All around I think the 9700 is an awesome device and definitely an upgrade for the Bold.
