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 :)
Young, 27 Oct 2011Hi guys, i upgraded from BB 9700 to BB 9900 but i tell you one thing. I returned it after 2 da... moreI totally agree with you in terms of battery life as it is very bad compared to 9700 as I had one of those myself however I find the reception no different as I've had full signal all the time! In terms of battery life to be fair, the BB9900 is a 1.2ghz processor so consumption will be greater compared to the 9700 running at 624mhz! Saying that if you were to buy another smart phone and anything running at 1ghz + you'll find that you'd more or less get a day or just over!
Hi guys, i upgraded from BB 9700 to BB 9900 but i tell you one thing. I returned it after 2 days of use due to the fact that the battery don't last as 9700 and the network coverage is better on BB 9700.But again is really a nice phone.
[deleted post]Well not sure what handset you are using but BB's are not garbage! I currently use both BB9900 and Iphone 4! To say the least don't tell me you've a PERFECT handset as there is no such thing! BB's AREN'T the greatest in terms of apps and that's where iphone comes in! However BB is a fantastic phone in it's own merit! BBM for example and it is the MOST secure phone in terms of handsets! I'm not saying BB's are perfect but neither is your phone whatever your using! It's a Business device so if your a person who loves apps / adverts and games then the is NOT a device you want! Like the person who you had responded to, it's ashame that people like you come on here and start bashing....all fair and well by giving your opinion but trollers like you should be BANNED!
Been using the 9900 for 2 weeks now and loving it. However, one minus point about this phone is it doesn't have the auto focus for the camera. Other than that, it serves my purposes of chatting, gg to FB, getting emails and love the keypads!
it is really a shame that people come in here and bashing other phones.
for me, i think bb is a great business phone. if this is what you are looking for then go for it. i have been using BB9900 for a month now and i think it is great. battery is not a problem either when you disable 3g. you dont need 3g when you have BES. you can read and reply to your emails very easily and securely.
i own a samsung android phone as well.. but i use that for social networking and such...
finally, all i have to say is that blackberry is a phone. unlike the other brands (namely iphones and android) which try to pass as a business phone but fail so miserably. for me those are just gadgets and toys...
All complaning about this BB are right mine goes back to the dealer tommorrow....FREEZE and batterylife socking!!!
but il ike blackberrys keyboard and my previous phonee was touch.........i am so comfused... another question what about blackberrys application, games.....can i download good apps?

stathis, 23 Oct 2011please help...... i am 15 years old.. i like the blackberry bold 9900 very much but and the ip... moreHey you should buy apple iphone 4 beause it's give u much higher quality than the blackberry bold touch 9900.samsung, htc, lg give you more beautiful smartphone at low cost than bold touch 9900 .You can't compare bold touch with it's same range phone like galaxy s2 , sensation , iphone 4.beacuse what does black berry gives sam,htc give us at mid range phone. So my suggestion is you must go with iphone 4 or wait for iphone 4s or go with sensation or s2
