User Review

calsunshine, Walmart
20 December 2013
  • Summary: I wanted a smartphone with a QWERTY keyboard from a reputable phone retailer. I decided on this Blackberry phone. I set up the phone with Straight Talk (bought the $45 plan and the necessary AT&T SIM card from Straight Talk). Everything works wonderfully EXCEPT that there is NO data support. I can do calls, text, and wi-fi, but I cannot receive pictures via text or browse the internet, etc. Internet capabilities are only available via wi-fi.

  • Cons: poor battery life, sounds, camera and its heavier than other BBs. some apps takes too much time to open, idk if its the phone or the app.

Close, but but some real flaws

Colm B., Newegg
8 December 2011
  • Summary: The original Bold 9000 was a great phone. This 9900 could be great as well, but RIM needs to fix the audio and move the MUTE button away from the volume buttons.
  • Pros: Nice wide keyboard like the original Bold 9000.
  • Cons: Audio quality for the person you are calling is low volume, with somewhat muffled treble, making it difficult for the person on the other end to hear what you're saying. The Torch 9800 has much better audio quality. Hard to believe RIM would produce a phone with poor audio quality at this day and age.

dissapointed

jalobac, Phone Arena
2 December 2011
  • Excerpt: Unfortunatelly, this is the worst BB I ever had. First of all they did not have enought technology and skills to create a good battery. Created for business? NO WAY ! If reely I use it, at 15.00 I have 0% battery left. It is scrooling the text and image, without touching it. It is turning off just touching the middle key (under the display). Conclusion, worst expensive gadget that I ever had!
  • Pros: look, speed
  • Cons: battery, touch screen, squeaky keaboard

Unlocked but branded by T Mobile

L. M. Barral, Amazon
11 October 2011
  • Summary: It would have been nice to know that the unlocked phone was branded as T Mobile. Any other branded phone would have worked for me, but not T Mobile, as is NOT compatible with 3G service in the network I am using.

"Review seems to be incomplete"

Flyguy29, CNET
5 September 2011
  • Pros: Fastest BB of all seems to be consistent
  • Cons: Poorer voice quality and battery life plus missing the fact that the autofocus was removed seems to contradict "the best Blackberry of all" conclusion when all the user gains is a superior browsing experience over the older models.

"Where should I start..."

SunnyV92, CNET
5 September 2011
  • Pros: - Tactile - Best BB Keyboard yet - HD (720 p) Video Recording - 1.2 GHz Processor - Liquid Graphics
  • Cons: - Very BIG phone (Very Unconvenient to carry around) - bugs (apps, slow, etc.) - OS 7 is no major change from OS 6 - Tactile is not as "fluid" as sellers or video's say - Auto-Focus needs to be on this phone (Pictures tend to not be so...neat)
