This is an AMAZING phone, however mine yesterday "crashed" with a JVM 545 error, and no mattar what I just cannot get it fixed. This is very disappointing especially since I haven't used it for a month.
Another problem is that the battery just don't held up. It's fully charged at 7am when I leave my house, and by 1pm, I need to charge it!!
those who want to keep blackberry for bbm, emails, other chat apps - please go for 9360 curve. And also keep other very high spec phones like iphone 4s or even better in htc samsung or even a nokia,lg. new phones coming with extremely powerful dual core processors, graphics, new softwares, alls good. u wont be dissapointed with 9360 at all & also u can wait for upcoming 9790 which will be priced well.
Most faulted device, replaced 3 and still in the maintenance for different faults. When working, it is a good device. though bad camera (no autofocus)
Hi All, I got my new BB9900 Bold, what a great phone..congrats to RIM.i am from the old school,....Nokia all these years....and at last we have RIM.....i have read the comments on a few BB's...esp the 9900, yip the battery life not so good, but hey switch of the "unused" sources.....mmmm.....the life of the battery is longer....maybe RIM can produce a Li Polymer "long lasting" battery?????.......comeon RIM u guys have the tech..GO FOR IT and keep us updated on developments..once again....WELL DONE to RIM.......at LAST A DECENT FAST CELL.......Trevor in South Africa
I really love this phone and the keypad looks pretty cool. Can I hear from a reliable source if the battery of this phone is that bad please!
It's a gamble when you get any new phone. Ive got friends who bought other brands and having had to exchange them within days. I had the 9800 and that set gave me problems but once exchanged, it was awesome. So far the 9900 has been great. It's a phone and a good one at it. However, a "good phone" is defined by what your objectives are. If you want to play games or download a million apps, this phone's not for you.
MSTRKRFT, 28 Oct 2011The only crappy thing about this fone is the battery life, but theres many ways of prolonging ... morelook what u said is correct but think about buisness customers: you cannot expect them to keep on doing this throughout the day because there are better phones with good battery life..not just buisness customers but even young ppl find it annoyning after some time...we run a store to sell phones..because of the complaints we had to stop selling this handset...STOP PROTECTING OR BEING DEFENSIVE
BB has put too much stuff on this handset be it the browser..graphics card..processor.....bla bla bla
BUT HELLO the battery SUCKS!!!!!210 customers have returned the handset back to our shop in a week.
Hi could anyone please assist me in trying to figure out whether to go with Iphone 4s or Bold 9900?
Have bold 9700 currently and am looking to see what to go with, thinking may be to go bold for 12 months then by that time get the iphone 5?
Any thoughts appreciated

Anonymous, 15 Oct 2011Blackberry is the most shameless brand cheats, in country Oman 9900 costs around 680 USA dolla... moreif you dont have anything constructive to say then get off this website. bb like any other unit have there problems!!!!!
Had been using the bb 9900 for a month and a half now, it's a great phone but have been experiencing problem with the sound system. It seems to go off every time I talk on the phone - even if it's less than 15 minutes. I can't hear the other party talking and can't play music. Need to restart completely by taking out the battery each time.
Can anyone address this matter? Thank you :)
The only crappy thing about this fone is the battery life, but theres many ways of prolonging the life of your battery
1. Stop using apps that need constant internet connection.
2. Set your FB to refresh every hour, if you open your FB it automatically updates.
3. Close apps you are not using
4. Switch off bluetooth
5. If your in an area where theres good EDGE service, switch your fone to 2G only.
The only reason why the battery doesnt last one day, is cause its constantly connected to the internet. My battery lasted almost 2 days during the berry blackout
ITS AN AWESOME FONE :)
