Can someone please help me. I want the white bold 9900 so bad but I heard some rumours that the white battery door gets dirty easily. My question, Is the battery cover texture rubber or hard plastic like the torch 9810 battery door?
i have already bught the phone and i am scared by the comments already thinking did i make a wrong choice
this fone has only 2 problems to me... short battery live and camera doesn't ave auto focus...
Well i have had my bb9900 for about 5 months now , for some reason i have had no problems with battery life but for some reason it keeps FORMATTING ITSELF!!!
ITs BULL .Now this morning it has completely shut down it says 507 error please reload software , i cant access the phone or anything . what kind of joke is black berry trying to pull with this phone . SERIOUSLY !!! Dont waste your time or money buying this phone or any other new bb until they start making the things work like they used to again ,lets start a RIOT!!!!!!
Guys, I REALLY don't understand your negative comments as I'm using this device and I HAVE NOT faced any of the "issues" mentioned above. I'm a heavy business user and battery lasts for 2 days!!! (OE) I had no system lags, slowdowns etc. If you need a good camera then go for different device, this is for professionals. I have used nearly all operating systems(Android, iOS, WM6,7,7.5, Symbian, Bada) and I'm 100%-sure that Blackberry managed to optimise hardware and software the best. TROLLS KEEP AWAY!
shettia, 10 May 2012i want to know which is better the 9900 bold or the 9810 torch as am facing the prob of choosi... moreThey are quite different from one another when they are in your hand. The 9810 keyboard tends to be in a valley between the plastic casing and the screen above it so if you have bigger thumbs then it's not the best choice compared to the 9900, which by the way if you haven't read is not a good phone. But if you're like the average buyer, you'll be dazzled by the glitz and will think that something this pretty can't be all that baddddd. Don't do it. Being married to an unreliable problematic phone for the life of a 2 or 3 year contract can be frustrating and what looked really sexy at first can start to get really old really fast. Do a bit more research my friend.
Pls is there H+ mode on the bold 9900 as there is on the torch 9810 cus I have only 2G, 3G & 3G&2G on mine.
Loved blackberrys for certain functions but I'm going to switch to a iPhone.
Had my phone for under a year and my phone is no longer functional. I purchased the most durable Otterbox case available for the phone and still it's wrecked. Screen is no longer working. Light comes on but it's stuck at a black screen. Went in to Bell and gave me a couple tips but nothing works. Very unreliable. Used the phone for business and not having a screen on my phone doesn't make it any easier.
All in all I wouldn't suggest this phone to anyone!
I currently own a Bold 9780. Had it for about 1 1/2 yrs now. I recently "upgraded" to the bold 9900. I did all the blackberry transfer goodies through my desktop. After experiencing the 9900, i was genuinely disappointed with the entire quality of the phone. Everything from the battery life to the ONE convenience key that is on the right side. Even some of my favorite apps such as dictionary.com and ultimate fonts did not want to function correctly. I later discover through Blackberry world that the apps were not available for OS7. What kind of crap is that?! Dictionary.com? Not available? Give me a damn break. I could not go back to my 9780 quick enough.
I'll stick with my 9780 for now. Its a solid texter, good camera, WAY better battery life than the 9900, great sun legibility and it doesn't feel as delicate to hold as the 9900. I'm thinking of jumping to an iphone 4s because of the reliable touchscreen, great camera, and i can type with one hand if the situation calls for it.
Save your $$$. Stay away from the 9900. If you are tempted to give the 9900 a test-drive, make sure what the return policy is before you make your transaction.
shettia, 10 May 2012i want to know which is better the 9900 bold or the 9810 torch as am facing the prob of choosi... moreDepends on the usage... I had Torch 9810 have just sold becasue I think 9900 is durable as it doesn't have slider construction.. If you need bigger display then go for Torch, specs are the same.
All my boses uses 9900 but i'm still love my BOLD 9700bcoz of camera..all my friend saying that 9700 is the best cant bit even others hp.
Blackberry need to improve for next model or upgrade 9900.
i thought 9900 was the best-equipped QWERTY candybar phone available..
but all comments..a letdown
excellent, best BB ever made, fast and user freindly, camera sucks tho, battery life is much better than most BB's
RIM is years behind in hardware.5mp camera, 720p videorecording, 1.2ghz that too single core.
I upgraded from 9700 to 9800 and now 9900.
After much research I am going to swap the dump and useless 9900 for 9780 for 2 simple reasons: 1) Longer battery life and 2) Camera quality.
9900 is a worse phone ever manufactured on earth. You can hardly use it because it runs out of battery all the time and the camera is a failure. You cannot take closeup shots because there is no autofocus and even on non closeup, the picture is blurred when zoom in.
Forget about touchscreen on blackberry, you don't need one. And there is nothing special about OS7， in fact you should avoid it since it drains battery for UNKNOWN reasons.
