The optical trackpad is a crap. It reaches a point it stuck and thats it! you can't use it to scroll or enter. Tried to search for a solution on the internet, the only thing I found is a confirmation that this is a common problem with this model. I have to handset and the other is working really cool so far, 6 months. The other handset is not BB by the way.
One more thing, it depends on how you charge your battery, don't use your blackberry 9300 while its charging coz it will damage the battery as well the quality of it.
Some of you guys didn't really aware on your phone :p i'm using a blackberry 9300 too, and my battery was good in terms of browsing,streaming and using an applications, though yeah 3G consume a lots of battery however it depends on how you use it, mine i always have to switch EDGE if i'm going to use facebook,twitter and other social apps, remember, RIM created a bb 9220 which is 2G capable phone which is fast in social networking apps. duh?

:p, 04 Jan 2013Don't buy this phone it basicaly only works with the basic features and even then it struggles... moreMine resets the moment I lock it and the scroller jumps all over the place,if you want to buy a blackberry(even the torch,my friend has one and it give problems)you must have it replaced 3 times on a 2 year contract because it only works "fine" about 8 months then it gives problems,and the phone is also to slow to run decent apps and appworld only has cheap a$$ apps,go for a adroid or a windows phone,much better phones.
i've had mine for almost 2 years now... and i am still as satisfied. :D downloading is just fine. adv os and led app is a great app... i recommend it to users who wants to clean their logs automatically and of course assign specific leds to contacts.
i LOVE my Blackberry 9300. i do hybrid it and use an Os 7 root. and it was great! well you should download these 3rd party application "Battery Booster",Quick Pull,O.S & LED Indicator,VLINGO,SayIT,
@":)" You're absolutely wrong im using a Blackberry 9300 and i love its features.i had updated my OS to OS 6 and the internet is fast.i guess you don't know how to do the Basic troubleshooting on you device that's why you're not enjoying this phone. try this simple but helpful BTS. Press ALT+RIGHT SHIFT+DELETE simultaneously , or Press ALT + LGLG then you will be redirected to LOGs. so clear LOGS, and there's a lot of APPS that will help you to SPEED UP your Blackberry, not just only the BB 9300 but also the other BB PHONE/
Don't buy this phone it basicaly only works with the basic features and even then it struggles to make people happy.. Load of crap. Iv sent mine back 3 times this year because it just freezes all the time and the tracking pad doesn't work most of the time...
Phone is okay, I jst hav a little problem. My phone if its on 3g it doesn't automatically change over to Edge when there is no longer 3g coverage, I change it manually, but my phone network settings is on automatic, any advice?pl Ease!

giri, 22 Dec 2012call recording not available on bb 9300 Is call recording available on any  device?
Just learnt that I'm getting one of these as my new work phone - and I now see that it's almost 3yrs old! In fact it's only just a bit newer than my HTC HD2 (which I've given to my kids and which is running a NAND version of ICS at the mo) and as I'm using a iPhone 4s at the mo I'm dreading usung such an archaic handset.... :-(
