RB, 13 Oct 2011Does 9900 need an update to solve the battery problem. Read many complaints about this matter.... moreI'm not a bb expert, however I share frustrations of others pertaining to battery life. Seems there are a number of defensive people who seem to think the production of a phone supercedes the phones experience. Personally I am happier with my 9700. I really do think its worth a look around at the options. I was shocked by prices that were 20 percent or less on other phones and that have fewer issues and more functions. Make sure you buy a spare battery - you'll need it.
If you are thinking of upgrading be sure to look around. This phone doesn't have a video zoom, whilst competitors have 3D recording.Application world is still a snore and lacks interoprability with applications such as Shazam. Battery runs dead whilst I sleep, even if fully charged when going to sleep.Near tag is useless and poorly understood in South Africa-especially by promo or store clerks.Reception is near non existant. It costs much more then competitive products. Browsing is not a breeze. I'm so disguisted with this phone, I am selling it and moving back to a feature rich phone with capabilities that the BB doesn't have. Alternatively I am moving back to the old bold. The only benefit to this phone is more memory, pretty useless if it doesn't stay on long enough to use.
The difference 9900 and 9930 is 9900 for GSM and 9930 cdma.. If u in Indonesia, 9930 is not released in here.so that means 99930 is BM.
gsmarena guys if u have good contacts with the blackberry makers & can suggest them this is urgent so pls pass this message - need to improve the bb messenger as competitors r going aggressive. also nothing so exlusive with bb 9900, owning a bb 9900 but ppl with curve 9300 are laughing at 9900 owners as its just the same completely after they installed the new version os 126.96.36.1998. pls improve software with features of themes ringtones flash support few good apps free,new bbm, also whole new better os, also make it cheaper & cheaper charges per month... make it wordwide same charges rates plans to avoid anger frustration
what is the difference between 9900 and 9930. i will be grateful if someone can throw light please.
Just got mine and believe me its the best phone ever made by RIM the torch screen is pretty fast and sensitive.
Well said..some ppl just whining like sissy but never take initiative to make a different.Go create your own phone lar...kamanati..nayi nayi duniya heh...pata pon..
My blackberry is not coming up after the outage. A few bb messages have coming but mine cannot seem to send. Mine is a bb9900 . I hope it works soon. It's not funny I tell you.
BB9900 its not staying with charge and when u receive calls u cant hear anything
Ain't gonna spent my bucks to lower screen brightness and switch to 2G. 9780 don't seems to have this batt problem.
Had a lot of hanging and battery sucks big time. Used for a week and reverted back to my bold 9700. Will wait for QNX till i get a new BB.

No battery issues. I have 6 email id's configured & receive around 30 to 40 mails a day. I am using only 2G and switch on the wifi only when in range. 5 to 10 calls a day. The battery is down to 20% after 2 days. A tip - switch off the location setting as it is a drag on the battery.
ellen, 12 Oct 2011The battery is very bad....I charged the battery three times a day...u bought a fake BB made in china, so your bb battery is such
Does 9900 need an update to solve the battery problem. Read many complaints about this matter. Otherwise how is the handset, any comments & any issues? Would it be a better choice to opt for 9810 as features are more or less the same.

have heared it's a problem when pressed against the ear as the touch screen interfers with the call. Is this true?
Got my BB Bold 9900 on Saturday and the battery life is a disgrace!! Fully charged at 7am this morning and by 4pm it was dead. I had only sent 4 texts and made one phone call lasting 2 minutes. It really is appauling as I have the Bold 9700 and it lasts for days if I don't use it and normally 2 days without charging. Not sure what's going on as BB's have always been good on battery life - this is my 5th and never had any complaints.
