Sexy,light, robust and a great merge of the bold and torch

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I had the curve, then the torch - this is a brilliant merge of the too, but one better as its a torch so much easier to type etc...more sturdier in the palm of your hand.
The touch screen is great when combined with access to the full qwerty keyboard, instead of being tucked underneath as per the torch. The Torch became top heavy if you tried to write on the keyboard due to slid up face plate.
The downside to this phone, is battery is very bad..worse i have ever encountered. Due to playing with feature etc, i cannot get through the day without it needing a charge mid afternoon. I am waiting for my additional battery and due docking station so i can charge phone and replacement battery.
The other downside is the cost. But this applies to all these phones when they first come out.
At the momeny a frustrating realisation was that Ebay app is not available on this handset yet...but hope they get to sorting this out asap!
The design is great, its lighter than the other two i have had yet sturdy and secure in the hand. If like me you can type quick - this can enable you to type at speed. The keyboard is well spaced and designed. I love the stainless rim edging..makes it feel likes its more robust and wont end up with unsightly marks during its life use.
Very happy..even with the batter problem. Will just keep to charge the phone and spare battery every night and take the spare with me. Though i really have been dowloading and playing with the apps at the beginning as you do so perhaps with normal use i wont require the spare battery.

Review for: BlackBerry Bold 9900 - 8 GB - Black (Unlocked) Smartphone

Dear all,

Here is my story, nowadays everyone want to buy an Iphone, why ? Is it the best ? Everyone has his opinion. I wanted to try something different than the average. I went so for a blackberry

I've been using this phone for now 1 month. It is a well designed Blackberry with nice chrome finitions that give a luxury look to the phone. Ergonomics of the keyboard is amazing and you should never miss a key. However it is quite loud when you write.

The touch screen is also nice and almost perfect reaction to your fingers. However as blackberry user you'll be more likely to use the mousepad in the middle.

The most negative point is, as far as I am concerned, the low battery capacity, or the high consumption of energy of the phone ! Indeed, even if you cut every single applications the phone lost its battery (10% in 1h30 after fully charged) It is really its weakness and I am quite disapointed about this.

On the other hand you have the higher product in Blackberry Range (after the P 9981 of course) so once you'll find how to use it properly you should be satisfied !

Hope my experience will help.

Review for: BlackBerry Bold 9900 - 8 GB - Black (Unlocked) Smartphone

Easy to use sturdy phone. Keypad is better than most bb phones as it is not flat to the phone.

Battery life is about 2.5 to 3hrs when in full use ie: im using fb, twitter, ebay, internet all at the same time & roughly 5hrs just text & talk.

The phone is lightweight & easy to handle. I found it easy to customise & so far have had none of the freezing problems rim are known for.

Im finding it a great phone for quickly connecting to wifi, it also manages to pick up a weak signal in comparison to other phones I have owned meaning no roaming charges whilst in the house.

If you liked the functionality of blackberrys torch then ul like this to.

It also has a decent camera.

Review for: BlackBerry Bold 9900 - 8 GB - Black (Unlocked) Smartphone

BlackBerry Bold 9900 is a beautiful piece of engineering: it feels solid, expensive even, with its metal rim round the edge and its carbon fibre-esque backing panel. The keyboard is as good as a physical keyboard can get. The camera, the speakers, everything impresses and feels right. Turn it on and the vivid, bright screen looks as good as any on the market, iPhone included, and the touchscreen is responsive.

Good buy. Pleased with my purchase.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

I already had a "Blackberry" & wanted to upgrade to a newer model as I like the QWERTY keyboard set up. This one has a nice feel & look, is easy to set up and navigate around. The feature I really like is the fact that you can use the buttons or the touch screen to do this!! I am a bit disappointed at the battery life, have to charge it more frequently than my previous phone. Thought it would last longer than a day. Apart from that very pleased with my purchase.

Review for: BlackBerry Bold 9900 - 8 GB - Black (Unlocked) Smartphone

When it comes to email. There's no smartphone which matches. The processor is very fast and does things quiet fast. I like the screen and the user interface. However, I feel apple is years ahead when it comes to interface. Very good at multitasking. However, it hangs a lot especially with a 32gb memory card. Using the inbuilt memory slows down the phone. I would like RIM to improve on camera and RAM on this phone. Not the best phone for gaming hence more appealing to the older generation.

Review for: BlackBerry Bold 9900 - 8 GB - Black (Unlocked) Smartphone

I wanted a SmartPhone that could make my online life easier and I found this phone. Because of the blackberry plans, I no longer get stuck when I need to download school work or be online for a very long time without worrying about data charges. A very good phone although I wish the screen was bigger than it is.

Review for: BlackBerry Bold 9900 - 8 GB - Black (Unlocked) Smartphone

This product was purchased for browsing using BIS and it surely delivered. The price combined with its effective and intuitive interface made it a good purchase. Gone are the days when a simple entry level blackberry would suffice, this phone is a necessity for any true follower of Blackberries. true that the tiny screen does hinder browsing especially if you have gotten used to the massive displays of Samsungs, but its other features compensate for any pitfalls. there is also the issue of the battery which needs an entire review on its own but to put it in a nutshell, sad.
