Is it true that the os 7.1 update solves the battery life? I want to get this phone on the weekend.
I really like this phone its cool. Only probem i am facing is email alert comes three time for single mail
Forget the battery guys u should focus on amazing keyboard and display and the thikness of 9900 WooooooW ... Am agree with all of ya about battery but its normal for me coz am using smart phone .
akeel, 19 Jan 2012how can i save battery because battery life is very lawset ur phone to use 2g only, battery lasts much longer. FB, twitter still works
i just have shifted from bb 9780 to bb 9900, the baddest part is battery. it hardly finish my one day. within 9 hrs the battery falls to 10% in very nominal use. i am not even using twitter or facebook very frequently.
even the camera has no smart features like bold 3. close photography, and no auto focus option given due to so close pictures including text pictures are always blur.
in terms of cost, this phone has many drawbacks.
disappointed of using 9900. bb 9780 is better.
just i would to say that the battery is Implemented quickly just half day with out call or browsing
please wt can i do at the same time i like it and i dont need to change it

raj, 15 Jan 2012I hav big problem with battery, ia their any solution for it. mobile is realy good with great... morebuy a gold battery with twice the life. turn brightness down to 20pct. charge drain 3times then your battery will last a whole day .. mine does even with bloomberg running and phonecalls. also if you are in the countryside with poor signal take off 3G!!!!!!
I'm disappointed with my new BB 9900. I just bought it last December 31, 2011 and now it's dead. I do not know what happened to the mother board, it just konked out while i'm charging it. What a waste of money. I thought it was a wise decision to buy a BB 9900.
Anonymous, 15 Jan 2012i think this is d best BB ever...very fast nd stylish. thump ups to RIM!thumbs up RIM... alllllright
getting 3rd OBF unit. battery life extremely bad... lucky if just on standby get 1 day. talk time as expected less than any blackberry on the market.. as for rest of unit its fast - can take a wile to not double touch touch screen and pad together.
seems like this got sorted on 2nd OBF unit.
phone gets extremely hot when on charge and does not last long on 3g nor GPS have a travel charger and car charger handy.
Loud speaker can tend to be a bit soft.
Keys are wonderful. - Camera EXCELLENT.
Screen BEST EVER.
Speed - EXCELLENT
Dartel, 14 Jan 2012Wrong decision to have spent my money on Blackberry. iPhone & Androids leave this by miles... moreDartel, you are a really sad person! RIM robbed you have they???? If your here as a troller...please leave! You already know what the 9900 offered as in terms of spec...so if the spec didn't meet your expectations why did you go ahead to buy this then!!! Go back to your iphone forum! Your a troller!
Mel B, 14 Jan 2012Like most of you i love the 9900 and i think this is the best looking BB of them all, however ... moreHi Mel B, not sure what your doing wrong but I've not got that problem in charging every 4 hours! When you first had the phone did you give it an initial charge and drain down 3 times? To be honest, I don't use my BBM as much as most of you guys and girls but do make a few calls and texts etc and my BB lasts for two days. Anyone else having battery issues, try and drain down at least a fews times and hopefully it might solve your problem. Constant charging the battery will only burn the cells and shorten battery life. Hope this helps.

I hav big problem with battery, ia their any solution for it.
mobile is realy good with great functions.
Wrong decision to have spent my money on Blackberry. iPhone & Androids leave this by miles. Not user friendly and the combined physical keyboard and touch screen is an anomaly. It didn't even have a front-facing camera. Put everything together - for it price and features - this is a robbery. RIM guys, wake up to the new century!
