Hey guys...I am planning to purchase this phone soon and was just a bit confused with regards to the battery life with tons of mixed reaction on it....can current users of BB 9900 please share their experiences with regards to the battery life? Thanks
The Bold Touch rocks! The keyboard is the best on the market, the quality is outstanding and the performance is snappy quick. The interplay of the touch screen and track pad make it a dream to navigate and select your way through web pages, apps and menus. Its shirt-pocket thin size is ideal for those who don't like belt clips or pocket bulges. BB finally has a good browser and I found all of the apps I need. If you are a phone gamer though, you might be disappointed in the game selection.
There are multiple apps to find a restaurant or a movie and then show you how to get there, socialize with your friends, manage your investments, tell you the score and the weather at the game. There are apps to help you find your plane and track your loved ones in the air. There is an app to locate your BB when its lost and even wipe it clean if its stolen. There are even a few games to keep you entertained. And of course, there is an outstanding email solution. All of the apps I have used respond quickly and perform very well.
Some reviews complain about the camera but the photos I have taken are pretty good for a phone. I use a camera with a real lens when I am serious about pictures. For Facebook pix, the BBBT works great.
The Bold Touch puts the CRACK back in Blackberry.
I have been using this phone for a month now and I love it very much. Ofcourse all kinds of phones has their own drawbacks. For instance, this phone is so powerful yet the camera has no auto focus and the battery drains a lot faster than the bold 9780. If RIM is going to make this model their benchmark they should have made it complete. Anyway, hope RIM will make an update for OS 7.0 and fix all the bugs. But overall, I rank this phone a 9.0/10.0
mehernosh007, 13 Sep 2011Does BB 9900 support Flash?yes it supports flash

The camera does NOT have auto focus but the shots aren't that bad! It cannot possible be the worst camera on any phone! Your comments are very unfair to BB and negative and hopefully people don't take your comments in! IF your that worried about the camera I'd suggest you should buy a seperate camera but the 9900 does the job well in all respects....I mean it's no cybershot but it can take shots fairly!
coco, 11 Sep 2011I am changing my Iphone 4 to the blackberry and i much prefer blackberry, a few years ago i ha... moreI see your point with regards to getting the BB9900 however, the iphone is good in it's own right. I've both as the iphone is superb in the respect of apps and I don't mean gaming what most people do and your right as to the BB has much better signal but what strikes me the most is the qwerty keypad that really does it for me! People compare these two all the time but they really are two different kettle of fish!
had this phone now for some weeks.
Camera has no auto focus and is by far the worst camera i have seen on any phone.However everything else is great.Keyboard real easy to use compared to the 9700 and the touch screen is fantastic.
RIM, will you remove the touchscreen feature.
at first I think RIM has got it right. but, nooo. they have to put in the touchscreen.
it's consuming a lot of battery juice.
Hi guys wat is big different betwen bb bold 9900&9930

i have the phone for a month now if you have battery problems keep your device network to 2G and when wanting to use the net move it to 3G or leave it to 3G network and you will see how long your battery last i have been using blackberry phones from the past 8 years and have no complaints from it at all...also restart your phone once a week and you will notice the difference in speed and also the battery usage
