F34R, 24 Jan 2013mine doesn't lag and I have tons of apps. best BB smartphone.Not all the BB is the same.. that was your luck to have such.. example: when u do download any theme from bb apps world.. it might be working fine on your blackberry bold 9900.. but NOT ALL will experience the same!! Even all using same original bold 9900, but not all will run any themes and apps!!
AnonD-105064, 25 Jan 2013the duration of the battery is less than 24 hrs. Piece of shit!it depends on your usage. BTW please search for forum to optimize your bb. i recomend crackberry.com ..

sukhi, 19 Jan 2013would it be possible to upgrade 9900's 7 OS to blackberry10 OS ?i think BB 9900 bold is the best of all the BB i've used, i wud recomend it to anyone!!
Just bought it last tuesday.. But feels thousand of regret buying this bold touch.. Freeze a lot.. Lagging.. Even previously I've been using torch 2 is much more better.. Based from my predict torch 2 is much smoother.. 15% less hang then this bold.. One more thing.. I've got excellent experience browsing internet on torch 2 which is more fast actually than bold 9900.. Both are lagging but bold 9900 are much disaster..
sukhi, 19 Jan 2013would it be possible to upgrade 9900's 7 OS to blackberry10 OS ?Nope, BB10 is new operating system which is not based on Java anymore ...
Ive had my 9900 for a year now, the 1st handset lasted about one week, the second was one day and when it was replaced I didnt bother with it as my 9700 worked perfectly. Screen freezes, calls have been ignored and caller waiting doesn't work, O2 just want to send it away to repair so 5 months on contract and I will never use Blackberry or O2 again.

will anybody tell me that skype is working in this phone or not....also viber and watsapp ????? plz do reply me thank you
would be an excellent device if it had a larger battery, the small 1230mAh battery limits the capabilities of this phone as the user is constantly trying to balance performance with battery life.
I had this phone for about 3 months. Conclusion: great design, excellent keyboard, but HORRIBLE software.
My 1st 9900 was replaced after a month of use - it just bricked itself and couldn't be fixed.
My 2nd shuts off randomly when bellow 50% battery, not to mention that the battery life, even with all the tricks and tips of how to safe, is very short. Tried everything to fix it, I am returning it for warranty, AGAIN.
Not to mention, updating and syncing is pathetic as well - updates freeze, syncing freezes, you have to reconnect your USB for the phone software to recognize the phone (nothing wrong with hardware - it recognizes the phone instantly).
Conclusion: don't buy this phone unless you are willing to risk having so many issues the software has. I bought this phone for the great keyboard, but the software aspect makes this phone not worth it.
