Pros: Slim, sharp touch screen, and very easy to use. An excellent phone for the mature user that appreciates a qwerty keyboard. Software syncs directly and seamlessly Outlook 2010, using Blackberry desktop software (no third party program required).
Cons: Once you sign into Facebook, duplicate calendar entries appear. You can turn them off, but you have to turn them off every time you go into calendar. Maybe there's a way to turn them off permanently, but haven't found out yet, and it's very annoying.
Summary: The 9930 is so nice. It is slimmer and a little bigger, but just a nicer phone all the way around. I like the touch screen feature it has too, along with the camera. If you like the use of the Blackberry, you will like this phone. I also like the Blackberry because it will take a beating as compared to other phones.
Stable and reliable without the needless bells and whistles

Summary: I've used many phones. In the past few years it's been the Galaxy S to iPhone 4s to Galaxy SII to other Blackberry devices and this phone seems to be the best of all worlds. I am not someone that needs much when it comes to phones so take my review with that in mind. I wanted something that is reliable and excellent at email and call quality. Something that had a top notch calendar that was easy to use. Something that had a decent memo pad.
Summary: The bottom line is, if you're a BlackBerry lover, and have been packing something like the BlackBerry Bold 9780 for this long already, you can probably hold out for another 6-8 months for the first QNX BlackBerry, which will be running an operating system much more likely to be supported in the long haul.
