Ralff, 10 Jun 2012I just bought this fone and it`s amazing, the built quality and tha design and the keyboard th... morewell about 7.1 update, u should have it because i heard that it will increase the battery consumption...which means u battery can survive few more hours without being dead :)
hey im getting this phone in 10 days. any thing you guys wanna say before i have iT?
JulMaggot Vouskou, 12 Jun 2012the battery sucks. confirmed.Yeap..!! 100% agreed. Specification is just for show only. Feel like being cheated...! 9700 is far, far better. Blackberry company should look into this.
Battery power doesn't seem as per specification. It runs out of power so fast. When I checked with other user, also claimed the same. I wonder if the spec is just for show. The music sound also doesn't satisfy me as it is not as loud as expected compared to others. Referred to agent, they also admitted but no initiative to rectify. Regret buying these item.
I don`t know how some of u guyz have problems with the battery, I mean I constantly use bbm, whatsapp, facebook, twitter plus my gmail is synchronised so emails pop up like every 5 minutes or so, and I still get 2 full days, plus regular text and bbworld, but the thing is I formatted the battery when I got it last week, I know some of u say no need to do this anymore but actually u do.
Anyway have any of u upgraded to 7.1?
hi everyone...just wanted to check if anyone has recently bought this bold 4 and if there is any improvement of any kind?thx
First of all, I love this Blackberry model for the keyboard.I believe it has got to be the best as I've tried all other models, and have found the keyboard size a tad too small for my fat fingers. The screen is good too, but sometimes appears washed out.
The most worrying thing about this flagship model is definately in its battery life. On Idle, without any activity for 3 hours, its life can reduce by 1/4. This is alarming for a person like me who requires heavy usage for communication with clients.
I have read many petty remedy from battery pulling to others like tweaking the GPS, 3G, and the likes. However, this is not a very feasible option for me as i'm always on the go and have to be on standby 24/7 as the nature of my job.
Does anyone know of any solid solutions from RIM for this matter ?
The cursor on my blackberry 9900 keeps jumping up and down by its own and starts scrolling all by itself uncontrollably. Plus at times the touch screen and track pad will freeze at the same time. I have been experiencing the problem since the day 3 of purchase. Most of the time I need to take off the battery but the problem reappear within minutes. I tried wiping off and restoring back the data but it didn't help. I want to get it replaced. Horrible instrument.

I love the design of this bb phone, the spec is also good. But too bad the battery performance is very poor. I charge it every morning before go to work and has to charge it again on the evening. I only use for bbm and some phone call everyday. If only BB can make the battery perormance better, it will be perfect. Batt life for only 10-14 hours is crazy u know.
what a waste ...a great phone but the worst battery possible. BB has missed a great opportunity because of some arrogant engineers who thinks he/they knows it all.
Urgent need to introduce better batteries for the phone, RIM can still resurrect the 9900.
This phone could have been the best phone of all times, and I include Iphone and androids, only if it wasn't for the bad audio (bad speaker with a muffled sound both when you use handsfree speakers and answer incoming calls on the handset). How and why would a mobile phone company make its audio worse on a new model, not better ? Bold 9700 had a clear loud and wonderful sound. Why would you make the next one so bad??
I Hav been Uzing Bold 4 for 3 Months
The Phone Is Perfect Thn Anyother BB Expect 9700
But the batery of Bold 4 is nt soo Goood Nor Bad
I was planin tu Buy 9790 but I dnt Bold 4 if I hav one more Bold 4 I wil be Moree Happyy
(---- BLACKBERRY ROCKS ----)

Anonymous, 12 Jun 2012the battery life story is a concern! i keep hearing the battery very, very bad?!the battery sucks. confirmed.
Great phone with the exception of the battery... standby time and talk time is nowhere near accurate. i have mine one month now and the standby time is less than 24hrs.
