i have used all sorts of blackberries and im of the opinion thats RIM has got notin to offer her customers other than new shapes and designs.
after using the 9900 that requested for a reload of software juist a week after purchase and its pre and post continuous hanging, i was forced to conclude that blackberry 9900 is a blackberry mistake.
my advice, if u are an addict lik me and must use a blackberry, pls stick wit ur BOLD 2 .Note.neva upgrade it. its great and after all every blackberry does same purpose.
Hi net addict
Am surprised to your comparision bb with nokia e6.Just compare the display size,key board,browising speed of bb withyour phone.only positive point is its half the price of bb 9900.ofcourse you can do the things what you have mentioned with any damn mobile.It's the quality that counts finally.
buttom line is blackberry is not worth it for your money
go for android or iphone almost the same price anyway and the specs are great and this crap cost about 28k here in the phil ill go for n9 instead LOL and you dont have to do spot the difference after releasing a new model same specs same design nothing changes for blackberry
i will NEVER EVER EVER buy a blackerry again after the dissapointment of the 9900, ive had it for 4 months and its totally broken...to the point it doesnt even switch on its never been dropped and its in immaculate condition shame cus i had the old bold and the curve and they were both fine.....BLACKBERRY's have let me down this time ....im off to get an iphone4s steer cleer of the bb bold 9900 guys :)
I've been using BlackBerrys since I started using cellphones. I had the BB Pearl, BB Storm, different Curves and I recently perchased the Bold 9900. The Pearl didn't last me longer than a month (not surprised) and the Storm wasnt too great either. I always had problems. I bought the BB Curve 8530 last September. That phone was literally the best phone I had ever used in my life. Sure, there were some slight cons to the phone like everything else in life, but it was extremely realiable. I usually am accessable to a phone charger at both my jobs so battery life wasn't a problem. I've been using the Bold for about a week now. A few days after I purchased it, it shut down on me and wouldnt turn back on until I uploaded the software which is understandable. I did that , and so far, the phone is working beautifully. People wouldn't have any problems if they just treated their phones with care. They arent crappy little toys you can just throw around and expect nothing to happen to them. Treat the phone well, and I guarentee there will be no problems. Install updates whenever needed. Also, people need to stop complaining about battery life and how crappy it is on BBs. You are literally probably running so many applications, browsers, sms, bbm, ect, on the phone of course it will die if you are always on it?
i m considerin gettin a bold 9900 or nokia n9. i nid advice cos i dnt lyk d ba3 iss wt bb
I am dont know which to buy between Sansung galaxy s2 and blackberry bold 5 (bold touch)
Hi! I'm an iPhone user and last week i bought this phone. i think i like this better. so much. better battery life and more feutures but if you want an iPhone because of the apps you can just buy a nice phone which is a blackberry and you buy an iPod touch, for the games and songs. I LOVE BLACKBERRY :D
Anonymous, 29 Jan 2012Maybe your iphone has more apps however, it's sad for you to say that the 9900 is unreliable! ... morethis i love bb's but to be honest the faults n the new bolds are endless maybe some may have none but many do! i would rather use the old bold which works and is an amazing phone than the new 1 but to me bb is the only way i will never buy a different phone deff nt am iphone yes many apps but its just nt a bb!!!
Anonymous, 28 Jan 2012This phone is AWESOME! I've NO battery issues! It lasts for two days approx! Was it 2 consecutive days???
jlees2000, 29 Jan 2012Dont go from iphone to bb9900 one of the most unreliable handsets on market. Iphone more fun, ... moreMaybe your iphone has more apps however, it's sad for you to say that the 9900 is unreliable! BB has Never let me down in anyway shape or form! This is also Not my first BB as I've owned most BB's! I've personally got an iphone 4s and BB and most people go for the iphone due to the fact that the battery is poorer on 9900 than previous BB's however....the iphone ISN'T the greatest in battery performance in terms of smartphones either!
i think the phone in general is a nice buy. my torch had battery issues and i can commit t othis as its easier to handle and very thin. cant wait
iphoneuser, 28 Jan 2012i have a iphone 4, and im considering getting a bb bold, thoughts ?no i would stay with iphone
phani Raj, 29 Jan 2012Hi guys
Why all of you are behind battery backup .which smartphone giving you more than a day... moreFrom my point of view E6 is having really gr8 battery backup.
I m using it from last 4 months. I use it internet browsing, 3g services, continuous music. It gives me 1.5 days backup.
iphoneuser, 28 Jan 2012i have a iphone 4, and im considering getting a bb bold, thoughts ?Dont go from iphone to bb9900 one of the most unreliable handsets on market. Iphone more fun, reliable and easier to use. the only thing better on the bb is e-mail. however if your e-mail works on iphone dont change at all.
iphoneuser, 28 Jan 2012i have a iphone 4, and im considering getting a bb bold, thoughts ?I'm also an iPhone user but I'll gonna buy BB bold 9790, maybe this week for messaging and calling. They say 9900 is good for big hands, 9790 for small hands. Why would you buy a bb bold anyway?
Why all of you are behind battery backup .which smartphone giving you more than a day.smart phones are not just used to make calls unlimited net browsing,watching videos,camera etc.How can you expect battery backup again.REMEMBER NO SMART PHONE ON THIS HEAVENLY EARTH GIVES BATTERY BACKUP LONGER.
OTHERWISE don't ever compare bb bold9900 with any other mobiles.if you want to compare you do it with other qwerty phones.AND MY VERDICT IS BB IS THE BEST QWERTY PHONE.compare to nokia e series,htc chacha,or motorola androids Etal.
Bb's display,fast browsing,you tube ,downloading and all are extremely fast.It is portable,stylish and ofcourse trendy.Again don't copmare with I phone or samsung galaxy series.Compare in tis own segment.Then you will know the importance of BLack berry bold 9900.IT IS MARVELOUS PHONE IN ITS SEGMENT.
