They are different kettles of fish! People that slate off BB Bold on the BB forum is because they feel insecure! Before you ask I have both BB Bold and IP and it's a matter of what you really use your phone for! It's just like trying to compare a BMW M3 and a Range Rover....different cars different usage!

Now that you are stuck with 9900 low battery power at least you have an option. These Portable Chargers are same size as the handset and look good - provide 3 to 4 times battery recharges - need to be precharged before going out :)

Light weight and same size as the handset - would give you additional 2 to 4 times battery power back up anywhere. Visit I saw the product and liked it. At least you have an option :)
i think that bb 9900 is a great phone cuz it has all the caracteristics such as touch screen and qwerty type so its soo resistant and elegante at the same time , soo if a could choose between iphone 4 and bb 9900 i'll choose bb..
I'm cusrrently using one and the problem is that the battery doesn't take long before it is finished, are all 9900 like that or is there a problem?
Brilliant device finally a BB with memory,yes camera and battery could have done better.
stupid mobiles making batteries frm 1000mah to 1500mah since so many years, time now for 3000mah 5000mah. all technology has improved but no battery as same old power. also all r fools and accept it, wanting to buy the best phones having best touch, display brightnes, best camera video,games, high ram,high processor,everything high but then stupidly keep the screen brightness lowest,off the touch key sound... please dont sell the phones with battery anymore & sell the phones at lower price, please battery companies make sperately so we can choose our pocket power to even buy the highest available battery
Hi guys, it most frustrating to see most people comparing iP to a BB. These two phones are different in many ways. To me, if you are an executive and looking for a more professional looking smart phone, i believe the BB will suit you best. While the iP is more suited for hip and fancy users. just IMHO.
by the way, the battery drain quick if you don't carefully managed your application.
and i'm still a BB user. looking forward for this new bold 9900, love the classic looking of bold 9000. agree?
I think Iphone and Blackberry are great Gadget. Each has their own speciality.Recently I have Iphone 3GS,Iphone 4, BB torch, Onyx1, BB Torch, Ipad1 and Ipad2.
Anonymous, 04 Oct 2011That is not true.I'm getting two days battery life and all emails are in html .Its a very good... moreOk, tell me what if you receive an email containing pictures with links, will your BB9900 be able to display it or it will give you a link instead of the pictures?????
About the battery, I know how to save it but I'm asking why I should turn off the DATA manually while it should be automatically ?? & why I decrease the bright to 10 while I can use it on 50 or 100 ??
Believe me it is a rubbish.
i want ask you BB users??i have an Apple iPhone 4!!but i get bored with it because its mine 4th iPhone and i really want to change with This BlackBerry 9900 !!What it has in it it beeter than Apple or what ??tnx
HEY you are doing blackberry an injustice by blabbering on with your complaints and you probably do not know how to use the phone even. Too bad you sold off your phone or I'll recommend you to take a look at the manual or online videos to teach you to use the phone. About the alarm setting. Just too bad if you're so picky!
ibrhmnbl, 03 Oct 2011I bought this mobile on 10th Sep 2011: 1- Very bad Battery !!!. 2- Very Bad Mapping software... moreThat is not true.I'm getting two days battery life and all emails are in html .Its a very good phone and ps my previous phone was the iphone 4 and I had the previous two versions of the iphone and I much prefer this bold.Iphone is basic but if you're into angry birds and ghost radar then go for the IP
ibrhmnbl, 03 Oct 2011I bought this mobile on 10th Sep 2011: 1- Very bad Battery !!!. 2- Very Bad Mapping software... moreWhat utter rubbish!!!! I have Facebook and Twitter on mine! And you should learn how to preserve battery life! I assume you know but in any event have fun with your iPhone.
