I got my BlackBerry Bold 9900 and it is a great and powerful phone. My only complaint is the battery life. I had to charge every 5 hours.
e_bert, 07 Dec 2011hello, how can you know and identify the phone youre about to buy is the 2nd batch? from serie... moreSadly you won't unless the shop will let you open the box and place the battery! You can then do this by checking the updated software and if it's version 7 your fine but again you can update this via BB online.
Donhils, 07 Dec 2011Pls can somebody clarify dis issue for me? This bad battery that everybody is complainin about... moreGood question! BB9900 Bold battery is 1230mAH but running at 1.2ghz whilst N8 battery 1200mAH running at 680mhz. It's like comparing a Toyota Rav4 2.0 engine with a 60 litre fuel tank and a Range Rover 4.8 with a 90 litre fuel tank....which is going to be more thirsty???!!! Despite the bigger tank / battery!!! Hope this helps.

Turn down screen brightness and time. I have no problems at all for inexcess of 50 calls, emails, or bbms per day, but rarely waste my time on the internet. The phone easy last for the day with something like 30% left in battery. Fine by me. Also have a new Samsung Note which has far worse battery and finished within 6 hours of solid use.
I Must say, initially when i was reading user opinions, expert reviews, pros & cons....i hesitated to buy this phone and always went to stores and checked the phone closely then took the decision and got the phone.
this phone is the best BB phone ever.
u can feel quality(heavy Duty not like crapy baby toy phones like"no offence"), speed, user friendly GUI, HQ Camera, amazing KB and not bad battery life considering that its a smart phone with touch screen and 3G(power consumption)and i strongly recommend to get this phone to everyone
I am in the process of considering the purchase of a bb9900 but with so many complaints of battery life I am rethinking will this be a bad investment. I do not have US810.00 to throw away. Can a person be honest and tell me something honest?
Pls can somebody clarify dis issue for me? This bad battery that everybody is complainin about in dis bold touch 9900. My Nokia N8 uses a Li-on 1200mAh and its not bad at all so Why will this blackberry with a Li-on 1230mAh be very bad? My question is wat actually determines d longevity of battery?
Can anyone inform me how to do a full software for this BB or how to installa gain the Amazon music store and Podcasts , i lost them during a restore of my contacts.

I find the 9900 crystal clear in all aspect however, one thing I agree is that the battery is like Michael Jackson! It's BAD! lol Hence why I returned mine! Believe it or not but I have brought back the baby bold! 9780!

Sereen, 04 Dec 2011hi...pls can anyone tell me if the BB 9900 has conference call option? and how does it compare... moreCan't advise you how 9900 is compared to 9930 as I've not used a 9930 before BUT can tell you between the 9900 and 9780 though! 9900 is the one to go for! Don't get me wrong battery is slightly better on 9780 and you get roughly half the time on 9900 however, you do get on 9900 touch screen which is smooth, OS7 over OS6, 1.2ghz over 624mhz, 8gb internal, NFC, need I go on?
hi...pls can anyone tell me if the BB 9900 has conference call option? and how does it compare to the BB 9930? I'm really puzzled I think it is nice but too big and sometimes I feel I want to get the baby bold 9780...can anyone help? thanks :)
