I heard the batt life was suck.My teacher also use this phone and i notice she keep charging the phone.The screen also very small to use.
Spacedust, 20 Oct 2012Very good keyboard, but that's all. OS is full of bugs, too small screen, so my eyes get hurt ... morePls I love this phone but a times if u call even if I had stored the name it won't show
This is definately my last BB. I've had OS problems after virtually every update for 3 years. Wifi problems on my 2 month old 9900 now and I'm sick of it. Can't wait to go back to good ol' Nokia.
I love this phone ! I'm really pleased with It and I have the white version ....
Well when I first got it , it was coming with a 7.0 software and it was hanging a lot and draining the battery easily , until I upgraded my Blackberry to 7.1 ! It got faster and I barely see the hour glass on the screen now :D and it has battery saving mode !
And not many ppl know this but when u go to battery saving mode , you'll see (turn on mode when battery level is below 20)
Change it to (always on) and it'll last much much longer ! Cuz the battery mode will be on all the time ! Not only when your BB reaches 20% and then the battery savng mode is on ....
No , if u put it on always on , it'll turn on battery saving mode even when the battery is 100 % ..... So that's good !
I really recommend u to buy this phone and upgraded instantly to os 7.1 :D
Hope this helps all of u guys who are having probs with the bold 9900 ! Cheers :D
you wanna write emails and sms and still look or talk to someone next to you? this phone allows you!!! the tiny but very comfortable keyboard is amazing! you start to type just like you do in a computer!! go for it! unless you like just to touch screens and see images, you should go for the competitors models.

If your having problems with your signal going from 4 bars to SOS upgrade the software on the phone to the latest. I am on software version 220.127.116.114 from o2 uk.

had bb bold 9900 for over a year. im on my 3rd brand new hand set and nothing but signal problem everytime. it either the network provider of the bb are rubbish. great phones when they work.
see i dont know why people are so fussy about their i phones..life is so much more than just playing games on cellphones and chatting over skype..productivity is very important ..i have almost used every model available in india and i dont see any problems with my bb apart from video calling options and some minor options availability. I have brought this 9900 recently after using torch 9810 for some time.This looks way better than i phone and is super sexy sleek and is very fast..fast..great work by bb..other functions are also great..standard battery like any other cell phone..go for it..
I need the spec, like processor 1.2 Ghz, ram 768 MB, and HSDPA 14.4, two times better than samsung galaxy wonder, because the price is doubled
which one in your opinion is better, bold 9780 or 9900? i dont mind about gaming, videos etc, i really care about excellent telephony performance like signal, battery, loudspeaker, keyboard, build quality. thanks in advanced.
dont blame bb9900 for battery backup.if it runs full day its the best.you know how much little time it takes to get recharged fully,its just one tenth of what other androids take.is it not horrible to keep the mobile for charging for 3to4hrs.this problem definatly not there with bb9900.and weather its 2g or 3g the speed remains almost the same. but for androids or iphones you people know the difficulty in opening google page itself takes hell of time on 2g.thatswhere bb shows its greatness.
that too in india the tariff rates are 399pr month for unlimited service.is it not great.
ok for making video calls gaming definetly is not the better phone.otherwise its the best for emails browsing with uninterupted signals.
SO FINALLY I WANT TO SAY BB9900 IS THE BEST SMARTPHONE FOR INTERNET WITH VERY MINIMAL PRICE I TARIFF.OFCOURSE THE NEEDS FOR HAVING A SMARTPHONE ARE TOTALLY SUBJECTIVE.
some want it for gaming some for videos etc.
but for me this is the best smart phone
Very good keyboard, but that's all. OS is full of bugs, too small screen, so my eyes get hurt when using longer than hour a day, battery lifetime is a joke, almost one day. Save you money and get iPhone 5. This is my third BlackBerry and probably the last one.
