Purchased in 2012 this phone has given me nothing but trouble. After 6 months of purchase it was sent to the Vodafone centre, since it was purchased from Vodafone India, from where it was sent to Blackberry, because of memory problems. After almost one month Blackberry sent a report that the phone had been tampered with and was not covered under warranty! Why would it be tampered with when it was under warranty? Well, they couldn't answer my question either. Has anyone tried contacting anyone at Blackberry? It is a near impossible task. I was finally able to get the e-mail address of the CEO of Blackberry India and sent a mail to him. Extremely promptly I received a telephone call from their service head the next day. He offered me a 'swap' handset that, in my naivety, I assumed was in replacement of my defective handset. It was later that I found out that a 'swap' handset refers to a repaired handset. I have used four such 'swap' handsets in the past 6 months. All handsets have been defective. I have lost 6 months of my warranty testing defective handsets for Blackberry. Do yourself a favour and do not purchase this handset. You will thank me for it. If you still do purchase it... I told you so :-)
I am like to by the BB 9900 Pls let me the understand..!
how its your all the experience?
whether its user friendly..! bcoz previously i am using BB 8520 Its a basic but superb & I dint face any issue till last i am working it..!
The phone is: SECURE, COMPACT, THIN and LIGHT with keyboard, touch screen, BT and WiFi. The audio and camera aren't great but fine for my purposes. Not running multiple applications, simultaneously, and a "memory management" utility may explain my experiencing "freezes" rarely. The stock 1200mAH battery doesn't last long with heavy use; perhaps, half the day. The 2400AH replacement batteries, which are the same size as the stock, I bought on eBay for $15.00 (two, new, shipping included) last twice as long. If the thickness and weight of the phone weren't concerns, I'd have gone with the 5500mAH replacement battery. I paid $160 for the phone, which had been used for one day, $25.00 for accessories, and, while there are a couple of things I'd have done differently, I have no complaints.

What a piece of crap!! With this Blackberry has finally alienated my support.
Error faced: OMG!!!
even memory is free, it hangs everyday, hangs during calls in, most of the time, the dekstop apps hangs too, have to crack my laptop everymonth, my laptop is fine, i'm using 3 laptops. The affiliated apps needs to be updated everymonth or the apps cant be used(few apps), basically BB/Apple is just Marketing strategy, sells stuff that didnt work, and people spend more money on new versions. Hell on earth im gonna touch another BB/Apple.
Overall: TOTAL DISSAPOINMENT, BB SUCKS MAX
I got disappointed one time with pearl flip 8220 but now I want to try this maybe it changes my mind
I have had the 9900 bold for 2 years now.
it is an exceptionally frustrating phone. The battery life is very low, the phone freezes constantly for a couple of miuntes, and websurfing is frustrating, due to the slowness of the phone, even when it have full 3G signal.
I now have a Galaxy S4, and it is at least 1000 better than the 9900 bold
I love this phone but i hate it, nxaaaaa i have had it for 2weeks and it freesez from time to time, and the battery lets not evn go there, gosh ... blackberry has disappointed me again
Had this phone for less than a year and bought it from authorized dealer in my country (TAM/Teletama) for about USD 540. Less than a year when I charged it to laptop USB using original data cable the phone just went blank with red indicator light on. Its now in service center from 11 May 2013 until now. They said the IC power just went off (as a note this phone never fell off, always use original accessories) and there's 8 other phone (Blackberry 9900) having the same issue at the dealer. Been 2 months ++ now still no luck on the spare part. Its a pity that this happen to phone that cost above USD 500 and the level of incidence is also high if you Google. Blackberry as a company have to start increase their R&D expenditure to make improvement happen otherwise people will start to swift to other brand and say GOODBYE Blackberry. Blackberry should value their customer even more...
Shaft92, 08 Jul 2013Only blackberry OS 10 (Z10 & Q10) can use skype to make calls, with this, you can Install ... moreWhat app do you use for skype? Imo no longer works, im+ is paid where i do not hold a credit card.

My frustration is the battery life span is too short..charging twice a day for busy man is quite embarrassing.
