Hi to all BB9900 users. I had a BB9900 when it first came out and like many people I too had complained about the battery last merely a day however, I had since returned it back and waited and now the replacement handset I now have last almost 3 days! Yes, it's no joke 3 days! According to the shop I purchased this from it appears that RIM have had problems with the first batch despite it's still 1230ma. RIM have released the second batch and the battery is MUCH better! If you can try asking your shop for a replacement. Good luck people.
Dean, 14 Nov 2011Hi Can u use led light as flashlight?yes you can ....
by the time I get this phone all the bugs will have been worked out :P. There's always one rule I live by, never get a phone, computer, etc. when it's first released because there will always be bugs to work out.

the battery is not very last long,,it has problem in software,,whenever i changed some setting like wallpaper or ringtone or others setting after i restarting it is always come to default setting.
can some one tell me how to solve this problem,,,thanks
i request every blackberry user to complain to blackberry in facebook,twitter,emails,etc everywhere for their buggy software, defective batteries, majority crappy apps, highly phone prices as per their worth, high data charges & should be made one plan all over the world so no partiality n comparison in India the blackberry plan is around 10-15 dollars per month unlimited blackberry,emails,internet, in middle east starting its around 25 dollars & limited megabytes usage. Not worth actually, u can compare 9780 browser & 9900 but not in wifi usage in normal network use, u wont believe 9780 is so fast n 9900 fails, 9900 drops calls, has no network in easiest of full network areas, battery is defective, appworld is not supported in many countries, complain so that they do something, look at iphone they listen & doing something for the battery of ios5 as draining, rim doesnt do till its really gonna be hit hard its enuff now
For all of you people clamoring for the new bold 9790 saying it will be off the hook and bla bla bla. Sorry to disappoint you guys dat the phone is out and there is nothin enticing abt it. Same battery 1230mAh, more ugly than the previous Bolds and I believ its gona be expensive too. I think I'll just go wit 9900.
Dis phone is a no!no!..a total disappointment.RIM is rippin us off big time!
Another ripper from RIM. The new models 9790 and 9380 are dust bin stuff..Just disappointed to see that even these phone have 1250mAh battery which is pathetic for touch screen phones.Secondly USD 515 for a phone which has same features as 9780 is also ridiculously foolish by RIM. No wonder they r bleeding n will continue to so if they come up wid such useless models.
can all blackberry models recieve mediefiles thru bluetooth from non balckberry cellphones?
anybody planning to buy 9900 please i request n beg u dont buy, please wait for new bold 9790 as it is superb yes its just coming within a month it will be everywhere, its worth the price quality n also problem free. also has touch too. compared to 9900 its far better improved, better battery & also software.
We are being seriously cheated in south africa by vodacom... Our bis is now restricted tot 100mb of 3G speed. What's the use of buying a 3G blackberry then?
