So far so good :)
This is a classic vintage phone, all latest devices have front cam, 9900 only has back cam and does not even have led flash. I expect a lot more than bb but i think they are acting stupid and is dissapointing bb lovers.

Anonymous, 21 Dec 2011Hi all. Am really making plans to buy the 9900 but this battery issue is freaking me out. I dn... moreDon't let the battery put you off this handset! This is the slickest device from RIM to date! Like one reviewer states it's only missing Autofocus...that's it! As for the battery life....not the best however, think carefully though, look at other smartphones ie Iphone 4s, how is the battery compared to this???? Smartphones generally consume more power than traditional handset due to dual core processor, screens etc so most smartphones are about the same for this day and age! We SHOULD be going to having more power technically with all the lastest technology but don't let be put off buying a smartphone due to down in power especially the 9900! You won't regret buying this handset!
Dhruv, 20 Dec 2011Bold 9900 is only missing is autofocus .....Every thing is lagging(Missing) for its Price.

Hi all. Am really making plans to buy the 9900 but this battery issue is freaking me out. I dnt enjoy my touch dat much cos of battery issues. Pls I need a candid advice
bring the mobile which have huge battery life you bring the mobile advance and the person who use he is busy person and every mail or blackbeery services is impotant for him but bad battery life it work till evening or serching for charging mobile and miss the mail
The 9900 was my first Blackberry and I love it firstly because it satisfies all my needs and it doesn't just look awesome, it feels and operates awesome. Feeling up the internal memory renders it slow but just don't feel it up and you'll enjoy the best BB has to offer.
Bad battery life...should have held on to my 9700..9900 is very very bad in terms of battery life, wats the use of all the cool features of a phone if it cant even last for a day...OS 7 is cool, screen is good... rest all features which a bb user mostly uses are same to old models...BB came out with a good phone with bad battery life...i m goin back to my 9700...
Matejo, 19 Dec 2011Is this a serious question? In my experience Blackberry's have a reputation for breaking down ... moreNot sure how you use your buttons...do you use a sledge hammer or something? I've owned BB's for years and NOT one single one has let me down! As for your touchtype....well it doesn't make sense as BB's are renowed for QWERTY keypad's! That was the whole point why BB's are popular....if you want touchtype then sorry to say that this phone really isn't for you! You should be on the iphone 4s forum! Touchtype world there! Please don't take offence though!
Crazy ASS, 16 Dec 2011Why would you want to touch type, for god sake?Is this a serious question? In my experience Blackberry's have a reputation for breaking down (their buttons especially) - with touch type, at least if my buttons do mess up, I wouldn't have to send it off to get fixed straight away because I could touch type. It's not rocket science.
mobile is fantastic and his features like dreams and 3g services available handset
i dont like this mobile its like Normal Mobile i guess BB 9300 is more better thn this one, secondary cam is not available thats the main point to be Ordinary Mobile ..Expensive and ordinary ..
