I bought this phone about 2 weeks ago and it really works well. It is not neccesary to use the touch screen but its very handy sometimes. The only downpoint as far as my opinion goes is the battery, almost every day it doesn't last a whole day without going totaly empty

Am planning to Buy the bold (9900), but I hate the fact of the touch screen, as my sister is using the Torch & while she's talking it keeps pressing on buttons randomly. How to solve this problem???????? Is there a way to off the touch option??
The Advantage of this phone is The OS itself, You will be amazed the productivity of the new Bold, and the capacitive touch screen that responds like an iPhone I mean it's not a cheap resistive touch technology that you have to press it hard.
I was quite actually amazed of the new solution regarding of the Bold battery issue , RIM stated in it's manual that. Switch to EDGE from 3G to increase battery life and it did significantly increased from 6-8 hrs to 14 hrs of heavy constant use.
EDGE is actually 2.9G slower but efficient keep in mind the Blackberry Curve use EDGE and can perform internet produxtivity that Bold does, Speed is not important if you choose battery life over speed.
The OS is fast and really responsive.
Harry B, 04 Sep 2011Had This Phone for 2 days now. And I had all the models of the Bold since 9000, 9700 and 9780.... moreDude u gotta let ur battery die completly and then charge it for 8hours straight and then it works fine!
Had mine for couple of weeks
Had a windows phone before so tooks some getting used to.
keys very easy to type with.
screen very clear & crisp.
battery is fine for 1 days use.
web browsing nice and quick
2 years have run the 8900 for business use, love it. Mostly Email and BBM, and Excel full. No games or FB etc use. Thinking of the 9900 but batt life is important. 8900 lasts almost two days. Does anyone know how the two would compare?
Battery doesn't last a day. 3 calls and 2sms's. Data & Wifi Off. In Holster.
Got the phone 2 weeks ago, amazing phone except the battery, it wont last 20 hours with WIFI and BT turned off. what a shame...
i have just got the 9900 and im quite worried because it gets really really hot while im using multiple programes like facebook and bbm, is this common?
Awesome phone ! Using it from the past 2 and a half weeks. Tremendous performance. Yeah battery's not up to the mark, you'll need to charge it almost everyday. Otherwise, it's the best phone you'll get in the market today. Or you can keep on waiting for iPhone 5's launch.
I have been using this phone for 2weeks now and all I can say is- the phone is quite xpensive but its definitely beta than any other phone in d market. Anyone who wants a longer battery life shold get an extra battery and/or a car charger. If u want a better camera, buy a digital camera.
Just ordered my upgrade from 9700 to Bold 9900! I can't wait till Tuesday! I hope that it will live to my expectations as some reviewers states that battery is poor! Despite this I believe that many other features will compensate this!
Im plannning to get this phone but heard that the trackpad has a problem :/ tell me about this please :))
