Issues with the phone:
- Battery life is poor
- Huge issue with 3G network: phone call drops, or there is no connection.
Has anyone else noticed these especially the last one?
I got my 9900 a few weeks now
Very nice phone
But as most people would agree, the battery life really sucks. I have to recharge after say 8-9 hours of use and i am not a heavy user of the phone
RIM, Even how advance is ur spec. Until todate, u still cannot compete with Andriod/ Iphone where they can download files which were more than 2MB. So it is better to have BB 9700/ 9780 rather than chasing for BB latest model which running under BB 7.0 version. in fact, not much good games can support BB device. Until todate, battery still an dissolve issues among BB device. I should say brilliant to RIM! Pls correct me if im wrong!
Pavan, 08 Nov 20119900 runs out of battery very soon on 3g network. i think BB9900 has everthing but 1500mah battery.urs has everything,, mine lack front facing camera!!! wth hows tht possible,, ??? bb screw u!!!
the new software firmware os version 126.96.36.1994 somewat solves the battery problem & improves it by 15 percent. but so far the best version with imprvements dats it. but 9900 not worth the price, 9360,9860 is pretty worth n 9790 upcoming is superb best

hi i do sell B/berry's as a sales person for a network but my first 5 phones was about 2 complains of the battery...for the 9900..a supervisor of mine opted rather to go for the 9810 due to the 8gb ..space...and he is over the moon so look at the two options and decide for yourself ..just a concerned blackberry ..sales person ..mwah just my opinion ...

Alf, 19 Oct 2011There are ways around the battery life issue. Obviously, it is a thinner phone with a faster p... moreI'm very sure most people complaining about the battery life of this device tend to listen to music on it and also play endless games people this is not what blackberry is made for its supposed to be your office on the move. My take is there is no blackberry with a perfect battery life I have used 6 different types of bb and I tell u battery life is no different even the much talked about 9780. I will buy blackberry over and over again but of course will be happier if RIM can adjust the battery. There is nothing I can do while in the office that I can't do when I'm on the move on my bb........PEACE
Tell me who here has the 9930 or 9900 because there can be a difference in battery life between the two cause of CDMA
BB Bold 9900 is awesome phone. Before 9900, I used a couples droids and I was very dissatisfied - unknown upgrades, unstable performance, piece of plastic.
BB is fast, good display, touchscreen + touchpad. This is my fist phone with qwerty, I loved it, very easy to use and work perfect.
Battery is empty in 2 days, not bad, not good. screen size is o.k., I don't need more. Phone is made in very good quality. BB Bold 9900 is the best phone I have ever own.
