Review: BlackBerry Bold 9930

Form Basics Extras Video Wrap-Up Comments  5  

Menus Calls/Contacts Messaging  

Calls

Pressing the send key opens the phone application and defaults to the call log. The call log looks almost identical to how it performed in BlackBerry 6 and BlackBerry 5. My favorite feature is that the press-and-hold gesture works in the call log. Press-and-hold a call record, and the 9930 offers up an options menu.

With a call in progress, the options presented are similar to what is seen on other touch devices, including quick access to the speakerphone, mute switch, and so on.

Contacts

As mentioned earlier, the Universal Search function alone adds a lot of power to the 9930, BlackBerry 7, and how users will interact with their contacts. Being able to type a contact's name from the home screen and go directly into a call or the contact app really speeds up many communication functions. The contact app also displays recent communications when viewing a contact card. Knowing when you last called or emailed someone at a glance is helpful. Want to call them? Press their number. Want to email them? Press the email address.

The calling and contact apps are amazingly useful, and work together seamlessly as one in order to make interacting with calls and contacts as painless and easy as possible.
