Abadi, 24 Jan 2012Hello All,
What’s the significance features in 7.1 update?
Mobile Hotspot: Turn your BlackBerry 7.1 OS device into a Wi-Fi® router anywhere, anytime! The new OS seamlessly provides Internet access for up to five Wi-Fi devices, including laptops and tablets.
Universal Search: For this new release, we wanted to focus on the intelligence of our system and our apps – in other words, we wanted to create an intuitive experience that does the thinking for you. For example, Universal Search now has a new auto-suggest feature that that intelligently filters Bing® search results to offer you a variety of relevant Web sites based on your search terms.
BlackBerry® Tag: Share contacts, media and files, and even invite friends to BlackBerry® Messenger (BBM) through a simple touch. BlackBerry Tag unlocks near field communication (NFC) capabilities for everyday use and makes sharing a lot faster and much more personal.
Wi-Fi® Calling (where available): With BlackBerry 7.1 OS, you’ll be able to make Wi-Fi calls using your carrier’s Wi-Fi calling service (aka UMA-lite or GAN-lite). Wi-Fi calling allows you to save your talk time minutes and make phone calls over any Wi-Fi network. Not all carriers offer such a service so check with your carrier for availability.
FM Radio: The BlackBerry 7.1 OS update will let BlackBerry® Curve™ 9360 and 9380 smartphone customers enjoy FM radio. The Curve models include a built-in FM radio so you can tune in to local FM radio stations. Simply plug in your headset to boost the reception (it acts as the antenna). Plus, no data usage or data plan required!

cory, 22 Jan 2012that is strange, i have "2G" and "2G/3G/4G" on my tmobile branded 9900That's logic, the same thing on BB 9810. BB 9900 & BB 9810 can already accept 4G!
why does my bb9900 have no 4G or H+ option on network selection? just 2G, 3G, & 2G/3G, no H+.... Any comment please?
matt01, 21 Jan 2012what is the life batter if u use it 3G whit the internet ??????i use to turn all my settings down, not anymore, with o/s 7.1, you get great battery life with the settings maxed out
matt01, 21 Jan 2012what is the life batter if u use it 3G whit the internet ??????if you turn the "network mode" to 2G/3G, your battery life will last even longer, i promise, but im already getting great battery life on 4G and with the screen brightness on 100% on o/s 7.1
aashish, 21 Jan 2012Best BB for sure, but the battery standby is bad and position of the mic makes it hard for lis... moreWhat would you recommend instead? I like Bberry and want to stay with it...but the only other option is the Torch 9810.
I was crushed when my 9700 got water damage, but took opportunity to try an Android~Samsung Galaxy SII. Everyone said I would love it and wouldnt miss my Blackberry~well they were ALL WRONG! I am BACK after two months and feel like I just rekindled a romance! I love the 9900 so far, and the broader keyboard is awesome, and it's nice to have the touch screen option.
I installed o/s version 220.127.116.11 and my battery life is great just like on my 9700. (Even with 4G, wifi, and gps on and apps running in background)
I am looking for a new phone and looking into some BB's. This looks like the best but I see allot of negative comments and would like to know if this is a good deal??? I don't want the cheap curves and scrap! I want something fast, good quality etc. like this one...Please help....I know about poor battery life...let me know about it's other problems and upsides!
Its very good in social networking, but not as impressive as the Samsung galaxy SII in internet browsing. All in all it suites me perfectly :)
looks awesome but some people complian about it, it has a lot of issues
