Am really worried about several comments on net concerning the 9900 battery. The phone is quite expensive than what the battery offering.
The RIM should improve on the battery urgently plsssss

SUPER FLOP 9900
HI ALL this ABZ from India and I want to tell you that this is the worst Peice in the market in 30K INR plus price range.
1. The battery sucks: doesn't last more than 4hours on continuous use after a full charge.
2. Creepy OS: Blackberry OS 7 is a 'biiig' flop. It's highly user unfriendly with even simplest controls hidden in layers.
3. Not a smartphone at all: Doesn't suggest last called numbers as u punch numbers in. No 'select all' feature for deleting
media files and documents.My 6000 bucks Samsung star is hell lot smarter than this blackberry crap.
4. No support for Flash: So no online games for you. Time RIM come out of illusion that they are Apple
5. Pathetic Blackberry store: No themes available. NO advance music player is there. No E books exist for this phone.
And for games, Only dinosaur's age Arcade games are there.
6. Erratic trackball (tested that on 4 models)
Verdict: If this phone was priced rs 10K,it'd been a market killer. But at 32K it's the buyer's murderer and plunderer.
I was fool enough to buy this junk, but strongly suggest you to stay away from it. Go for iPhone 4, HTC sensation,
Galaxy S2, -heck even for Nokia, but avoid this trash.
dude update its software through BB apps site.. battery will be okay :)
Peter from Brazil, 09 Dec 2011I have BB 9900. In 3g the battery last like 7 or 8 hours. Im using it in edge (2G) and the bat... moreYes, I have had the same experience, my BB9900 battery now lasts a day and a half with frequent use. Also helpful if u decrease the brightness to 10% as recommended in other forums.
AnonD-33663, 10 Dec 2011Does the blackberry 9900 comes with a memory card?no, mine didn't.
Does the Blackberry 9900 comes with a memory card, because everyone i know who has one say it doesn't come with one?
Some BlackBerry Bold 9900/9930 users have reported their blackberrys are bricking after being charged overnight. Apparently the BBs won't wake from sleep when the user tries to use it in the morning.
A RIM spokesperson confirmed the problem to CNBC and RIM is working on a solution. A RIM spokesperson said, "A limited number of customers have reported an issue where their device does not power on," and that RIM is "actively working on a software update to resolve this issue."
CrackBerry describes the issue: "Instead of your BlackBerry booting up properly, something goes wrong. You might get a JVM or App Error message, the phone might go into an endless reboot cycle, or occasionally it'll just sit there blinking red lights with the display never really turning on. Whichever way it manifests itself, I consider it nuked or bricked. Until fixed, your BlackBerry is useless. I'm really starting to wonder if BlackBerry 7 has some weird issues that allow it to brick a little easier than it should. I received quite a few tweets where people have also bricked their 9900s. And even on the Crack Team we've seen it happen more than it should."
I have BB 9900. In 3g the battery last like 7 or 8 hours. Im using it in edge (2G) and the battery improve a 100% with all the functions on, fcebook, twitter, etc. I tun on at 7 am and till 11 pm it works great. At these time 11 pm it remains a 30% of battery. When i need to download something I change it to 3G or connect wifi
does ny1 know abt bb 9970. if s then please let me know. n wht is d price of it. if no den whc is d alternative phone dat i shld buy..
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.
Jamie, 07 Dec 2011I am in the process of considering the purchase of a bb9900 but with so many complaints of bat... moreTurn off location enabling. This uses too many resources for no benefit. 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
