Blackberried, 23 Dec 2011Does anyone have call drop issues in new OS 7.0.2090???????Nope! Crystal clear call and no call dropping issues!
Such a lovely masterpiece. In love with the soft touch and the aesthetic beauty of the phone coupled with the flatness which makes it readily handy. Thumps up.

The battery should perform well under best conditions and not restricted conditions. Shame that we hav to do all this to keep the phone alive longer. Not fair.
TERRIBLE!!! Just bought one 6 days ago and a keyboard letter just popped right off!!!!
Does the blackberry bold 9900 have an anit-scratch screen or any anti scratch surfaces? Thanks xD

So far so good :)
This is a classic vintage phone, all latest devices have front cam, 9900 only has back cam and does not even have led flash. I expect a lot more than bb but i think they are acting stupid and is dissapointing bb lovers.

Anonymous, 21 Dec 2011Hi all. Am really making plans to buy the 9900 but this battery issue is freaking me out. I dn... moreDon't let the battery put you off this handset! This is the slickest device from RIM to date! Like one reviewer states it's only missing Autofocus...that's it! As for the battery life....not the best however, think carefully though, look at other smartphones ie Iphone 4s, how is the battery compared to this???? Smartphones generally consume more power than traditional handset due to dual core processor, screens etc so most smartphones are about the same for this day and age! We SHOULD be going to having more power technically with all the lastest technology but don't let be put off buying a smartphone due to down in power especially the 9900! You won't regret buying this handset!
