I love the looks of the 9900 bold but that's about it! What's not to like....well....Battery life is some what short....My MAIN point why I returned it was that when your in a tunnel and come back out, the phone doesn't have any signal for 30 minutes and if you want your signal back you have to switch the mobile network off and back on again! People think I'm talking jibberish but if you don't believe me next time you go on the underground etc and come back up look at your phone! You'll see! ALSO, I set my profiles assigned to different callers etc and this only works as and when it feels! Some days different rings tones as and when it decides! NOT the BB I used to know!!!!!! I'm reverting back to the 9780!!!! DO NOT buy this TRASH!!!! SO DISAPPOINTED!!!!
Apple was quick to rectify its antenna issue on iPhone4 and now its working on battery issue of 4S. But surprisingly RIM is sleeping n not bothered to rectify the battery issue of 9900. Think they dnt hav funds for R&D. No much improvement in design n features.Soon RIM will be over taken even by chinese vendors like ZTE. Sorry state of RIM.
Reverted back to 9780 besides the physical appearance and slight boost in processor speed there's nothing more to boast with 9900. Battery life is so much dissapointing. What I want with BB is the battery life, a clear no no with the 9900. Good thing there are lots of premium handsets with the same price range to choose from.
This device is a piece of trash, there's absolutely no point in combining a QWERTY keyboard with a simple touch screen. It's either a complete touch screen like othar rivals or a complete keyboard like its predecessor. The battery does't last more than 24 hours and despite having a fast processor, the phone jams allot. Os7 and the keyboard are the only positive things about the phone. I switched back to 9780.
ITS a expnsive cellphone . commonly all bb phone. minimize feature n max cost. tht wy i'll never interest to bb, it just hv one killing feature : bbm only. for the rest..nothing special
Bobbyboy, 30 Oct 2011Does anyone know when the white version of this is coming out?white launching near christmas
I have had the phone the time it came out, i have had it exchanged more than three times, the network has even offered to give me a different model but do not have a blackberry model at equal value. The phone has been wiped more than 5 times. Blackberry should give up there messenger and give it to someone that can run the phone properly. They clearly rushed the handset as usual and ditn check for fault. The Operating System is well over due is upgrade so fix all the bugs! My advise do not purchase this handset it really isn't that good.
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.
